HELIUS Omega Bronze-Gold 10

HELIUS Omega 10" Bronze-Gold pickup arm
A special finish version featuring deep bronze anodising and gold plated counterweights.
As these are made by special order, the amount of gold can vary according to taste; for instance, the headshell and base plate can be left in Bronze.
The other feature of these arms are the use of silicon nitride bearings. Harder than steel, they are as highly polished and spherical as ruby, but much tougher. 
Articles on the benefits of Si3N4 are numerous – the most obvious being Wikipedia in which there exists a paragraph specifically on its use as a bearing material.

A Helius Omega tonearm was also used on one of the most esoteric turntables on this world, the Air Force III of TechDAS.
Using also a 12" SME312s and a classic SME 3009 (both in stock at Holland Link).
