The Rega RB1000 Tone Arm carries more technological changes over previous Rega tonearms than any produced during the last twenty years! Key areas of improvement can be found in the bearing assemblies, wiring and materials used. Rega has worked to redistribute and reduce mass in areas of the tonearm where mass is critical to performance. The easiest place to see these changes in evidence would be the new polished aluminium arm tube. It has no coatings of any type. The changes made over the RB900 have resulted in a tonearm with extremely high structural rigidity, combining ultra-low friction movement together with massive stability. These attributes will make any cartridge mounted on this tonearm work harder than they have ever worked before. Do not be surprised if the first time you listen to familiar music, you hear detail that you have never heard before!

The award winning RB1000 takes almost twenty times longer to produce than an RB301. At present there are only two highly experienced technicians that can build this exotic tonearm. A "blue printing" parts and assembly process is used resulting in zero tolerance engineered assemblies offering ultimate performance.

The bearings fit on to ground shafts and into the tonearm using interference fits. This means that no adhesive is required and therefore none of the associated (component - adhesive - component) losses in rigidity prevail. It is fitted to the plinth by a 3-point fixing which is CNC machined out of a single solid block of Stainless steel. This provides the strongest most rigid base structure possible for the tonearm and causes less stress on the plinth and the bearing housing, and therefore the least possible resonance.

With the RB1000 Tone Arm the changes made have resulted in a tonearm with extremely high structural rigidity, combining ultra-low friction movement together with incredible stability. These attributes will make any cartridge mounted on this tonearm work harder than they have ever worked before.
