This is the most affordable MC cartridge from Rega, yet it is still hand built in the UK. Following in the footsteps of its big brother, the Apheta, the Ania shares a lot of common design aspects. One of the key differences is the body is not milled from aluminium, but is instead moulded from a very hard material called Polyphenylene Sulphide (PPS-Fortron) - a 40% glass and polymer mix. This required incredibly complex tooling to be developed, but the result is a more economical but still very solid chassis for the cartridge.

Like the other Rega MC cartridges it is an undamped design, disposing of the normal tie wire found almost everywhere else, this helps reduce moving mass. It features one of the worlds smallest MC generators with incredibly fine 0.018mm fine wire and very high powered neodymium magnets.

As you’d probably expect, sonically it has a lot in common with its bigger brothers and it offers an awful lot of performance at a very reasonable price. There’s a little less weight and scale, not quite as much resolution and refinement either, but the fundamental strengths are still there, it’s fast and dynamic yet very listenable and easy on the ear - a tough combination to pull off!
