The Ortofon OM 5S is an OM Series Cartridge and Stylus Single. The OM 5S is a moving magnet cartridge 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. A tiny, removable weight plate is ingeniously tucked into the top of the mounting bracket. If your tonearm is a 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 2.5 g.
