Ortofon 5E Replacement Stylus Overview

If your record collection was acquired over time, it's likely not in perfect condition but that's no reason you can't enjoy it. The right kind of record player needle will be more forgiving of minor scratches and imperfections on vinyl, and that's the kind of replacement turntable cartridge you should look for. The Ortofon 5E Replacement Stylus has a warm, full sound that doesn't focus on the details or imperfections of your vinyl collection. It features an elliptical stylus for accuracy and less distortion from the needle. On vinyl records that are not pristine, a more advanced turntable stylus can be too revealing and isn't always your best choice. The 5E is more receptive to older records and won't highlight the crackling that shows they were just as loved back in the day as they are now.

Stylus (rather, the tiny needle) fell out one day. Had to replace it.
