The re-designed Atlas MK2 offers a much wider weight range to deal with the more extreme cartridges on the market (up to 10g), and offers improved stability and sensitivity to ensure total accuracy every time.
Atlas was born from the frustration of using many outsourced gauges in Rega’s tonearm production areas over the years for them to consistently fail after minimal use. Rega engineers have meticulously selected each component to offer the highest possible performance. Inside the durable aluminium casework is a highly stable loadcell and precision amplification circuitry. There is also a custom designed front guard to protect the measuring element and provide easy alignment which allows the Atlas to achieve accurate and reliable performance with minimal input from the user.
The loadcell is a premium full bridge, shear beam construction. The cell is temperature compensated for a wide range of operating temperatures and is extremely resilient to shocks and deterioration over time.
The intelligent design of the Atlas ensures the the tracking force is measured in the same place every time allowing for very fine adjustment to two decimal places.
