The Helius Viridia has recently arrived at The AudioWorks, .
Now, you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to create a phenomenal turntable, but it certainly helps! The man behind Helius has been seriously described as a rocket scientist.
Helius have been around for 30 years as a tonearm manufacturer, slightly less time as a maker of turntables. Their Alexia has been around for a few years now, and has been creating a bit of a stir as a high end turntable, not at all at a high end price. Having established what could be done by applying science (well a turntable is a measuring instrument after all) the no holds barred Viridia is now available.
Looking a lot like it’s sister, the Viridia ups the ante in several very important areas. Including bearing, platter, motor and speed control.
