Chief Designer and rocket scientist Geoffrey Owen founded Helius Designs when he noticed that tonearms were a forgotten component within the hi-fi chain. This surprised him especially because it had been well established how much turntables influenced sound quality.

Helius Designs brings years of advanced technological engineering research and development to their elegant tonearms that sound as beautiful as they look.


For some time, Helius has been asked to recreate a version of the Scorpio for the 21 century. We have bowed to the pressure and have now launched this, the 4th product to bare the name Scorpio.  

 Available in both 9” and 10” guises we also believe the design benefits from the use of single strand silver wire. Mounting geometry is identical to the Aurora and Omega arms making a straight upgrade delightfully easy.

 A feature borrowed from its more illustrious siblings is the incorporation of the cue device into the main pillar.

 Although the price precludes very adventurous design  features, the focus of attention has been with the bearings, the quality  of which will trounce anything else on the market in the same price category.

 The Aurora is the new mid-priced Helius tonearm,  and fills the gap the Aureus arm used to occupy. Now in full production, the Aurora is available as either a 9” or 10” arm,  (12” available by special request ) with choices of single strand silver or O2 free internal wire.

The internal wires are terminated in the same way we dress the Omega cables, extending the wire through the arm and terminating with a pair of female phono conectors. This ensures maximum flexibility and does not adversely affect the turntable suspension.

( see Omega options, wire termination.)

The bearing design is similar to the original Orion range dynamically balancing the bearings around a point of zero potential.

The mounting geometry of the 10” arm is the same as the Omega, allowing direct interchangability.

Counterweights are available in 3 sizes to accommodate various configurations of cartridge and length.  

The Aurora is also available with a detachable headshell.
