Rega RB3000 Tonearm
The RB3000 tonearm is packed with new features pushing the
boundaries of tonearm design. As with all Rega tonearms, each one is
meticulously hand built by a team of highly skilled technicians. The RB3000
uses improved bearings with each one being hand selected to be an interference
fit with the paired spindle matching both the inside and outside diameters.
This is a Rega developed method of increasing the amount of detail retrieved
from the record surface, designed specifically to maximise performance of the
tonearm and cartridge.
The entire tonearm structure is designed to have
the minimum of mechanical joints whilst using the stiffest materials in all
critical areas. The tolerance of the RB3000 tonearm is so tight
that no adhesive is used at any point throughout the construction. A brand new,
low mass, precision engineered, vertical bearing assembly has been manufactured
to further complement the inherent design philosophy of
the RP10 turntable.
The RB3000 uses the latest award
winning Rega arm tube. Each one which is meticulously hand polished
(keeping mass to an absolute minimum) and has been completely redesigned to
redistribute mass and further reduce stresses and resonances. This
advanced design tube increases the stiffness and rigidity of the overall
assembly whilst reducing stress on the bearings even further.
