Why not get Origin Live to mod the RB-300, sonically at least, you'd be ahead. If you have a little more scratch, the Basis Vector or Graham arms are excellent matches.

Viridian, no, I haven't heard the new RB1000 yet. However, on the Rega website, it states that it is simply another refinement of the RB300 design, with better bearings and more hands-on adjustment and quality control. I think that this would contribute to the sound quality, and would expect that with the already excellent basis of the RB300, and these added improvements, that it would be a very good sounding arm. I'm looking forward to listening to one.
TWL, I too saw it on the website. The proof is in the listening though. Sometimes the smallest changes make, to me, what is night and day differences and then sometimes what look like massive changes make no difference at all. If you get a listen please contact me directly and tell me what you think.
