Rega Research RB251 Tonearm

For those still on a budget looking for a classically engineered Rega tonearm the RB251 will offer astonishing performance for its price. An enhanced evolution of the famous RB250 which was supplied as standard on the Planar 2 and P2 turntable. Using hand selected high quality vertical and horizontal bearings it is the first in the Rega range using our die-cast tube and uses the three point fixing technique based on the mounting design system of our flagship tonearm the RB1000.

This system reduces stress on the plinth and tonearm which offers greater stability though the arm. All of which translates into more music for you the listener.


Interesting Facts about Rega Tonearms

   A short history….

The first Rega turntables built during the 70's carried a Rega designed Japanese built 'S' shaped tonearm called the R200. By 1983 the time had come for Rega to design and build its own tonearm and so the world famous RB300 (Rega Britain) was born. The high pressure die-cast silicon alloy tube alone took two years to develop alongside the UK's largest die-cast company. The work and our casting subsequently won us an "international casting award" from America for what is still considered today to be a technically impossible casting. See if you can find one the same! Since its conception we have sold over 400,000 of the now legendary RB300 derived tonearm.
