Brand New (open box) Omega Helius Tonearm Made in UK. It was chosen by Paravicini to be the arm most likely to succeed on the Disk Master Turntable.
The Helius Omega is unique in their use of a threeTe-ball bearing race configuration; a design configuration invented by Geoffrey Owen. This design consists of three balls which form a triangle in a close running journal, with a fourth sphere pushing down into the center of the triangle, forming a tetrahedral array. In this way the bearings are dynamically balanced around a point of zero potential. This results in that absolute minimal friction levels possible in a captured bearing, yet it also ensures point contact on all surfaces.
All this technical stuff means that Helius tonearms offer the best control of vibrations and kinetic energy of any tonearms in their class. In addition to the superior bearing design, Helius tonearms feature the extensive use of differential mass and clever bracing, which further control the potential for extraneous energy that can degrade reproduced sound.
This tomearm need 43mm diameter hole with 3 fixing holes on a 54mm diameter beyond this to installed propertly.
