Ortofon OM 5E Moving Magnet Cartridge

Ortofon

  • OM 5E features Elliptical stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback

$109

The Ortofon OM Series encompasses three basic cartridges: OM 1S, OM 5E and Super OM 5E. With its classic design, the OM moving magnet cartridge has been featured on innumerable hi-fi turntables over many years, and the latest range gives turntable owners easy access to great sound at an affordable price.

The OM Series is the lowest-mass range of moving magnet (MM) cartridges offered by Ortofon, and combined with their minimal design allowing for easy mounting and alignment and clear, loud output for easy pairing with a phono stage, they fully justify their “Optimum Match” (OM) name.

OM 5E features Elliptical stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback. Elliptical diamonds are able to follow the groove oscillations more accurately than spherical diamonds due to their contoured shape. This results in better tracking and less distortion.
