Research RB303 Tonearm
Replacing what was probably the most famous tonearm in the world the
legendary RB300 was always going to be a challenge. The new RB301 uses
the highest quality bearings available (usually found in ships navigational
equipment) both bearings vertical and horizontal are hand selected to
find a perfect match with each spindle. It uses the classic Rega die-cast
arm tube and the new three point fixing based on the mounting system
of our flagship tonearm the RB1000, a high performance low capacitance
arm lead and plugs complete this amazing product which all combine to
offer unrivaled performance for the money.
For those who have auditioned the new RB301 will know this multi award
winning product will take you to the next level on musical performance
with any piece of vinyl you decide to present it with.
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
