The Exact shares the same body moulding as the rest of the Rega cartridge range. This is a one piece body and has no energy sapping joints between the stylus mounting and headshell contact face. The headshell face is machined perfectly flat to ensure maximum contact between cartridge and headshell.
Rega have designed and developed its own coil winding machine. This allows us to manufacture coils in a completely new and innovative way. This means approximately one third less wire is used than in our other cartridges, making the Exact even more efficient than the Elys.
The Exact has a highly expensive non removable cantilever, fitted with a “Vital” diamond tip. This tip fits into the record groove more precisely than the usual elliptical type, allowing more information to be gleaned from the records.
Because of the design and extremely high tolerances of Rega cartridges, our assembly methods owe more to watch making than the assembly line. Every one is hand built, and the highly skilled operatives use little more than tweezers and microscopes. Each cartridge is then adjusted and tested twice over a 24 hour period. Such methods are expensive and time consuming but we feel the results are worth it. We hope you do too. This cartridge should be fitted by a Rega dealer using specialist tools to ensure the correct torque is applied.
