Optimal Fit & 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 any one 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.

Styli Types And Interchangeability

By adopting a wide range of replacement styli, the OM 5 Series can provide an optimum match for your home system, application, and budget. 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.

Stylus Compatibility

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