We are delighted to introduce the second model in the innovative new Nd range of Rega handmade moving magnet cartridges, the Rega Nd5.

Named after the rare earth element Nd (Neodymium), the all new Nd5 cartridge utilises a Neodymium N55 magnet. This is the world’s most powerful commercially available magnet and is a crucial component that makes this unique design possible by providing more power than standard bar magnet designs. This all-new construction was developed over 10 years and promises to deliver ‘next level’ performance from moving magnet technology. 

Each Nd5 is meticulously handmade by our highly skilled technicians. The design uses a brand-new generator geometry with perfect symmetry to achieve accurate channel balance. The Nd5 also has an optimised pole gap for superior linearity and crosstalk characteristics. 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.

  • Unique generator
  • Rega 3 point mounting system

Nd Magnet technology

Often used in Moving Coil designs (including our own), we believe the Nd5 is the first moving magnet cartridge 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 more power than standard bar magnet design.

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 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 turntable models. Designed specifically with these turntables in mind, the Nd5 promises to extract the very best from your vinyl collection. The factory fitted packages are 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.
