Nd3 Manual

The all new Nd3 moving magnet cartridge was developed over 10 years and promises to deliver ‘next level’ performance from moving magnet technology. The Nd range (patent pending) we believe is a world first to use ultra-high powered Neodymium magnets which allow us to create this totally unique design.

Advanced Technology

Each Nd3 is meticulously hand-made by our highly skilled technicians. The design uses brand new generator geometry with perfect symmetry to achieve accurate channel balance. The Nd3 also has an optimized 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 miniaturized parallel coils which are wound in house utilizing 38-micron wire with just 1275 turns. This produces a low inductance, low impedance generator giving vastly improved high frequency response. In keeping with our commitment to sustainability, the Nd range is supplied in 100% recyclable packaging.

KEY FEATURES

  • Elliptical profile stylus
  • Aluminium cantilever
  • Neodymium magnet
  • Unique generator
  • Rega 3 point mounting system
  • Highly rigid lightweight PPS body
  • Handmade stereo cartridge
  • 100% recyclable packaging
  • Lifetime warranty against manufacture defects

 

Nd Magnet technology

Often used in Moving Coil designs (including our own) we believe the Nd3 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 our 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 our hugely successful MC range.

Cantilever & stylus profile

The Nd3 aluminium cantilever is fitted with a precision elliptical stylus. This profile provides exceptional tracking accuracy and extracts great levels of detail from the vinyl surface.

Factory Fitted options

The Nd3 cartridge will be offered as a factory fitted option on the Planar 2 and Planar 3 turntables offering exceptional performance and value for these models. The factory fitted package is offered at a discounted rate compared to when purchased separately, ask your Rega dealer for 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 should damage or wear out your Rega cartridge, simply return it to you Rega dealer and they will 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. 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.
