The standard version of the Omega is mechanically very similar to the Silver-Ruby model. The main differences being the use of tungsten bearings, copper wire and the colour configuration. The standard version is anodized black with silver counterweights.

Technically the arm is very sophisticated, being dynamically balanced, damped by differential masses and having non-coincident bearings.

In addition, it pays close attention to small but significant details ranging from bracing ridges machined into the headshell, internal cue construction, silicon bias correction, collet clamping base plate, micro-adjustment of tracking downforce to name but a few.

Cables terminated via 2 x female phono/rca sockets contained within special case; this allows customer choice of interconnect cable to preamp and ensure maximum flexibility of cables is maintained for minimal interference with turntable suspension.

Non-coincident bearings to ensure differential resonance frequencies.

Damping by differential masses.

Tapered tube for maximal rigidity and minimal height above record. Sectional area decreases towards the front.

Internal silver wires continuous from cartridge to terminal plug.

Counterweights:      The main counterweight is fixed and as close to the bearings as possible to ensure low effective mass.

                                   For fine tuning, we offer a choice of 3 minor weights. These accommodate cartridge mass ranges from

                                   7g to 20g

VTA adjustment:       Via screw and collar-clamp built within the base plate. Adjustment range 15mm/20mm max.

Effective mass:       Variable ( dynamic ) due to damping by differential masses and therefore ultimately dependent on  cartridge compliance, typically though. 7g / 10g.

Omega should be regarded as a low to medium mass  arm best suited to medium to stiff cantilevered cartridges.

Internal wire:           Cryo Litz silver, 0.05mm strands, polyamide coating for reliable protection from short,treated in liquid O2 for 1 week @ –190C.

                                 – Copper is used in the case of the standard Omega.

                                –  User choice ( customer to supply wire. )

Bearings ( rolling ):  Tungsten, Ruby, Silicon nitride or ceramic, Diametric tolerance 2.54 microns. Sphericity 0.64 micron.   Surface finish tolerance 0.008 to 0.010 micron Ra
