Ortofon - OM 5E - Moving Magnet Cartridge

Ortofon - OM 5E - Moving Magnet Cartridge

The OM 5E is a Moving Magnetic Cartridge with an elliptical shaped stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback for general purpose applications.

If your tonearm has a standard headshell or a cartridge mount, then step up to optimal sound reproduction with OM’s. 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. The entire assembly weighs in at 5.0 grams. 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 2.5 grams.
