Rega Apheta 2 cart damaged


Recommended Posts

I had a turntable shipped to me and they didnt put the stylus gard on the cart as a result the stylus is bent, is this repairable/serviceable and if so can anyone recommend someone

 

cheers

I insured it through pack and Send. see how I go, I put a 2M black on my P8 sounds fantastic

My suggestion is leave the 2M on and sell the Apheta 2. I had an Apheta 2 on an RP8 and it was rubbish.

 

Joseph Long aka cartridge_retipping_5 on eBay does an outstanding job.

That’s heartbreaking on such a good cart. 
sorry to see this and I hope you decide to fix or cash it in Apheta 3 is the new version.

I second this ... I believe Chris (in Qld) should be able to replace the cantilever+stylus - possibly even change over to a boron cantilever, instead of the aluminium tube.  :thumb:

These carts respond VERY well to boron and stylus upgrade, the stock is a very very average cantilever and stylus.
