Ortofon Super OM 5E Moving Magnet Cartridge

Sophisticated  precise, the Super OM 5E is the pinnacle of the OM 5 Series.

The Super OM 5E features improved linearity, higher channel separation, and an Elliptical stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback. The 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.

Optimal fit and sound reproduction

If your tonearm has a standard headshell or a cartridge mount, then step up to optimal sound reproduction with OMs. A glance at anyone of these cartridges will reveal Ortofon's answer to perfect tonearm matching. Ingeniously tucked into the top of the mounting bracket is a tiny, removable weight-plate.

If your tonearm is an standard tonearm, just leave the weight-plate. If your tonearm is one of the low mass types, then simply remove the weight. The mass of your OM cartridge is now a mere 2.5g.

Styli types and interchangeability

The OM 5s features a Spherical diamond. Spherical diamonds are the simplest and most robust diamonds. The OM 5E and Super OM 5E feature an Elliptical diamond. 

In the development of OM cartridges, a major objective was to provide the music lover with the opportunity to optimise sound reproduction without having to replace the entire cartridge. Instead of being merely intended for replacement purposes following wear or damage, the OM 5 Series allows you to step up to better sound by simply upgrading the stylus.

Depending on your preference, styli for the OM 5 Series are easily interchanged & include styli 3E, 5E, 10, 20, 30, 40 & 78 and D 25 M.
