CLOSED: The internal wiring is best described as ordinary, but actually, I hate it. If you use another model or brand of cartridge, or use just two of the Apheta 3's three screws, you can set it for the original Rega geometry, though the offset angle will differ. That gives it a rather high moment of inertia, which means it resists speed variation. 2Q== VYJzkDE1XvassCTsXpXlvzRpnmC09ezEkUqqjXFrMAJYTJWiuULxk/CfsOw98zm+03xVI/MHmG5s 0.000000 ajDiHvpqnOQOwtb5H8922ryDTJJ/rF5GrsZS6ySuA1ausEMcSKteNdu3c4cOTJL6o8PxtMJSPMUy C=0 M=90 Y=85 K=0 This was strange but easily fixed and I used a small amount of synthetic bearing oil to restore bearing performance. xmp.did:01E16C456E13E6119E60EB0533BC9DEF CMYK CZ7yQuWrvyp928MeWM/pILGMxLkxrzt+ZpHmKSxtdK1WunSmJ54xbKnKKQh5IQ10hbmvTmq9PfMX The vinyl revival has been fun to watch. 0.000000 Listening with the Parasound Halo JC 3+ and Elys 2 cartridge Rega is famous for making high-quality, low-priced tonearms.
