    MY TAKE:

    There is no better way to significantly improve the sound of your Rega tonearm than to rewire it using the Incognito kit. In fact, I would say it’s a mandatory upgrade for anyone looking to maximize the performance of their Rega tonearm. Highly recommended. – Galen Carol
     

    Rega tonearms are superb performers and offer incredible performance at their price points. That said, nothing is perfect, and most agree that the primary limitation is the wiring, both internal and external. The Incognito wiring harness eliminates this shortcoming, dramatically improving performance.

    The output from the phono cartridge is minuscule. Voltages are hundreds or thousands of times lower than seen in line-level connections, making the cartridge to preamp link the most fragile in the audio chain. Protecting and preserving this delicate signal is key to achieving optimum performance. High-quality conductors and the fewest number of electrical junctions are fundamental to achieving this goal.

    When a signal is forced to jump across a connection, such as the one made in the base of most tonearms, some of it is lost. Signal loss sacrifices performance by reducing resolution and obscuring low-level detail. The Incognito wiring system eliminates unnecessary junctions, thus preserving signal and ensuring the best possible transmission.

    Using ultra-high quality Cardas wire, the Incognito kit replaces both the internal and external tonearm cable with a single piece of unbroken wire, extending from cartridge clips all the way out to the male RCA's that connect to your preamp; it's the most direct connection you can make.

    You'll be amazed at how much you can upgrade the performance of any Rega tonearm by rewiring with the incredible Incognito. The improvement can be dazzling!
     

    REVIEWS:

    Roy Gregory writes in Hi-Fi Plus magazine: “The Incognito re-wire kit lifts the Rega’s performance to undreamed of levels. It cures the lumpy, tucked under bass, and it cures the splashy treble and mid-prominent balance. But then I always figured that you’d get the hi-fi benefits. What I wasn’t ready for was the level of musical improvement.”
     

    “For anyone using an RB-250 or RB-300 (or even 600 or 900) arm, the Incognito re-wire kit should be placed right at the top of your wants list. If you are using it as a stop-gap on an expensive deck, then it advances to the status of immediate purchase.”

    “If the Rega arm was one of the bargains of a century now gone, then the Incognito re-wire kit dusts it off and sets it up for the one that’s just arrived.”

    "Just wanted to say thank you – re-installed the tonearm today – all's well – albums sound fantastic – thank you! - TK

     

    INSTALLATION NOTES:
     

    While we wouldn't say the kit is difficult to install, you do need to be comfortable working small parts and soldering very light gauge wires (and have the appropriate low-wattage iron). We suggest you send us your tonearm and have our tech ensure an expert installation (who has installed close to 200 Incognito kits!) for $80. Call us for shipping instructions.


    SPECIFICATIONS:

    External Cable Length: 4'
    Total Capacitance (from cartridge clips to male RCA): 50pF
