The Ortofon Super OM 5E is a Turntable Cartridge with Elliptical Stylus. OM Super cartridges models have split pole PINs which reduces magnetic losses at the treble end. This technology extends the frequency range and improves phase linearity. Using computer simulations, it has been possible to define the natural pivot point of the system with unprecedented accuracy while achieving an optimum oscillation balance. The result: improved linearity, higher channel separation, and reduced distortion. OM Super 5 cartridge body is manufactured from a Noryl (plastic & glass compound) which ensures high rigidity and freedom from resonances.

Optimal Fit and Sound Reproduction

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 2.5g. Super OM 5E features Elliptical stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback. Elliptical diamonds can follow the groove oscillations more accurately than spherical diamonds due to their contoured shape. This results in better tracking and less distortion.

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 optimize 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.
