Fitted as standard on Rega's P5 and P7 turntables
the RB700 offers exceptional performance and build quality
The aluminum tube has been specially coated in
a unique finish whilst remaining low mass. The tonearm assembly is concentrated
around precision, hardened stainless steel and miniature ball races of the
highest quality. 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.
The RB700 tonearm is designed to make cartridges work harder, maximizing the
cantilever acceleration and travel as much as possible with the utmost accuracy
within the cartridge body thus providing new levels of information.
