The RB300 was the first arm built by Rega in Britain
The arm features a beautifully cast one piece arm tube and headshell, closely toleranced bearings, rigid bearing housings and magnetic frictionless bias compensation.
VTF is applied by a dial on the side of the vertical pivot housing.
A spring within the mechanism applies maximum negative VTF at the zero setting and above three grams the spring is effectively disconnected.
Wiring is slightly unusual in that the arm tube is grounded via the left channel ground wire so there is no earth wire to connect back at the preamp.
Effective length: 237mm
Mounting distance: 222mm
Effective mass: 11.5g
Cartridge weight: 4 to 11g
Despite its modest price it sets exceptional performance standards and could be used on many high end turntables - HFN 1989
It was clear after only a few minutes audition, that the RB300 was a top flight performer. Depending on the chosen player, it proved quite comfortable in the company of other reference tonearms - £90 HiFi Choice 1984
Despite controversy over ultimate sound quality this is still a lot of arm for the money - The Flat Response 1984
