At the heart of the Rega Exact lays a highly expensive, non-removable cantilever equipped with a "Vital" diamond tip. Unlike the more conventional elliptical tips, the Vital diamond tip succumbs to the record groove more precisely, sieving out more information and details from your records, allowing for an authentic, immersive listening experience.

The innovation doesn’t stop at the stylus; Rega has also enhanced the cartridge’s coil winding technique. With this development, the Exact uses approximately one-third less wire than other cartridges, enhancing efficiency in comparison to the Elys. The head shell face of the cartridge is machined to perfection to ensure maximum contact between the cartridge and the head shell.

This moving magnet cartridge doesn't just promise superior performance, but also beneficial features inclusive of a fine-line Vital non-detachable stylus and Rega's 3-bolt mounting platform. The Exact's 3-point bolt mounting requires a third hole on top of the headshell for optimal functionality and compatibility with Rega's arms and other similar headshell designs.

Renown for its bright, fun sound and intimate soundstage, the Exact provides a pleasant midrange, and superb detail for its price range. Its high output guarantees improved signal-to-noise ratios with both tube phono stages and older solid-state designs. In simpler terms, the Exact remarkably captures the essence and dynamics of any music genre – whether it be rock, jazz, funk, R&B or acoustic.

The Rega Exact MM Carphone Cartridge brings forth an output of 6.8 - 7.2mV and a vital, complex fine line that is micro-ground from a rectangular diamond billet. Available in vibrant Yellow, the cartridge offers a 1.75g tracking pressure.

Embrace the Rega legacy of superior sound and dynamic quality with the new Exact MM Phono Cartridge – a perfect blend of advanced technology and unparalleled design. This is not just about listening to music, it's about experiencing it!
