Cartridge for Rega Planar 3?


MM or high output MC.  Up to $1000. 

What recommendations can anyone make from personal experience?  Needs to be an all around good performer, as it will be used for most all musical genres.  Thanks!

Nagaoka MP110 or MP150. I have both and they are superb cartridges that are appropriately priced.
Hi @williewonka ! I'm asking because I don't really have deep knowledge of MC cartridge settings, I wonder if a Schiit Mani preamp "with a response rate up to 20 kHz" would process the high output of an MC cartridge with a response rate up to 45 kHz.
@metin - since the "generally accepted" audio range is 20Hz to 20kHz then the extended output above 20kHz would not be in the audible range of humans.

Only young people can hear 17-18 kHz and even 20kHz is beyond their capability

Tannoy has a super tweeter that goes up that high and they claim to be able to hear the "impact" of frequencies that high.

Since most musical instruments tops out around 14-15 kHz - like cymbals - then (for me) anything above that is superfluous, so I do not worry about it.

Since it's only the very best Phono stages would be able to process  higher frequencies,  I would have to guess that the Schiit product would not be able to reproduce those frequencies.

Maybe you should contact Schiit - they could give you a definitive answer

The Grado hum on Rega's can be eliminated with some wire and a little soldering to properly ground the arm and motor but not everybody is up for that. Under 1K a popular go-to choice is the Dynavector 10X5 II, a high-output MC. Excellent match for the Rega arm.
