Ortofon Releases New OM5 Cartridges

 

 

Ortofon's OM 5 Series

 

Building on the beloved OM 5E cartridge, Ortofon has added two new options to the OM 5 Series – the elliptical Super OM 5E, and the spherical OM 5S.

 

Super OM 5E

 

Key Features:

  • New design makes for better frequency range and better channel separation
  • Elliptical stylus means better tracking and less distortion
  • Lightweight cartridge works with a broad range of tonearms
  • Stylus is interchangeable with other OM styli

Super OM 5E in depth:

 

Based on the OM 5E, Ortofon's stellar entry-level cartridge, the Super OM 5E offers an even more refined experience at an approachable price.

 

Designed with sophisticated computer simulations and built using incredibly precise machining, the Super OM 5E is the pinnacle of the OM 5 Series, offering a broader frequency range and better channel separation. Its elliptical stylus tracks the grooves of a record with ease and grace, for a more detailed, clearer sound.

Lightweight and versatile, the Super OM 5E is compatible with just about any tonearm, making it an easy upgrade for a vinyl beginner or a terrific option for a second system.


OM 5S

 

Key Features:

  • Spherical stylus for easy alignment and robust playback
  • Lightweight cartridge works with a broad range of tonearms
  • Stylus is interchangeable with other OM styli
  • Impressive performance for an entry-level cartridge

OM 5S in depth:

 

 

Again based on the OM 5E, Ortofon's stellar entry-level cartridge, the OM 5S is a perfect introduction to the world of hi-fi at a price that can't be beaten.

 

Offering unbeatable value and a convenient upgrade path, the OM 5S is a brilliant solution for someone who's just starting out in vinyl, or for a DJ who wants to enjoy more detail and nuance than durable DJ cartridges can provide. Once they've tried the OM 5S and gotten a taste for true analogue sound, upgrading is as simple as swapping the stylus for a more subtle OM model. Convenient and well-built, you simply can't go past the OM 5S.
