Rega's all new Nd5 moving magnet cartridge was developed over 10 years and promises to deliver ‘next level’ performance from moving magnet technology. Rega believes their Nd range (patent pending) is the first in the world to use ultra-high powered Neodymium magnets, which allow them to create this totally unique design.


Advanced Technology

Each Nd5 is meticulously hand-made by Rega's highly skilled technicians. The design uses brand new generator geometry with perfect symmetry to achieve accurate channel balance. The Nd5 also has an optimised pole gap for superior linearity and cross talk characteristics, this provides a far wider soundstage than the previous models. This new cartridge is created with miniaturised parallel coils which are wound in house utilising 38-micron wire with just 1275 turns. This produces a low inductance, low impedance generator giving vastly improved high frequency response. In keeping with Rega's commitment to sustainability, the Nd range is supplied in 100% recyclable packaging.


Nd Magnet technology

Often used in Moving Coil designs (including Rega's own), Rega believe the Nd5 is the first moving magnet to utilise a Neodymium (Nd) N55 magnet. This is the world’s most powerful commercially available magnet and is a crucial component that makes this unique design possible by delivering extra power than standard bar magnet designs.


Glass filled PPS body

The complete assembly is housed in Rega's zero tolerance injection moulded glass filled polyphenylene sulphide body (PPS) which is a lightweight and highly rigid material. A low mass body reduces stress on the tonearm bearings and aids free movement which is critical in accurate vinyl replay. This new body design was inspired by Rega's hugely successful MC range.


Cantilever & stylus profile

The Nd5 aluminium cantilever is fitted with a precision perfect elliptical nude diamond stylus. This profile provides exceptional tracking accuracy and extracts greater levels of detail from the vinyl surface.


Factory Fitted options

The Nd5 cartridge will be offered as a factory fitted option on the multi-award winning Planar 3 and Planar 6 turntables. Designed specifically with these turntables in mind, the Nd5 promises to extract the very best from your vinyl collection. The factory fitted package is offered at a discounted rate compared to when purchased separately, get in touch for more details.


Rega rebuild scheme

The unique pivot pad design of Rega cartridges improves performance by eliminating the mechanical joint between the stylus housing and the main body. This vastly improves tracking ability and stability of the stylus. If you damage or wear out your Rega cartridge, simply return it to us and we can supply you with a rebuild cartridge fitted with a new cantilever, stylus and pivot pad. Each rebuild is fully tested as a new cartridge would be, and the rebuild is sold at a reduced price once you trade in your worn or damaged cartridge that is equivalent to a replacement stylus offered by other manufacturers.
