Product Description

Line Circle

RB3000 - REF

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.

KEY FEATURES

  • Meticulously hand built
  • Hand selected bearings to be an interference fit with the paired spindle
  • Near frictionless movement horizontally and vertically
  • Designed for maximum performance
  • Effective Mass - Low / 11g
  • Mounting Distance, platter center to arm hole center - 222mm
  • Effective Length - 236.5 mm
  • Offset Angle - 21.55°
  • Overhand - 14.5mm

Product Details:

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.

Technical Specifications

Rega is famed for its tonearm designs. One unique characteristic of these designs is the achievement of near frictionless movement horizontally and vertically whilst having no measurable free play in the bearing assemblies (and in reality one or two microns of pre load). So, why has Rega spent over thirty years and invested so heavily in this area of tonearm design where the removal of even microns of movement has been pursued?
