Ortofon Super OM5E Moving Magnet Cartridge

The Ortofon Super OM5E improves upon the standard OM5E cartridge, with an improved generator system with split-pole pin technology for an increased performance level.

The Ortofon Super OM 5E has an improved generator system compared to the standard OM 5E, using the same split-pole pin technology that's found on the coveted 2M range is used. Split pole pins reduce eddy current losses caused by magnetic hysteresis, resulting in an extended, flat frequency, similar to that found on a moving coil cartridge. The Super OM 5E development also used computer simulations to accurately define the natural pivot point of the system, resulting in improved linearity, higher channel separation and reduced distortion.

As well as being easy to fit to any tonearm/headshell system, all OM cartridge bodies also benefit from a tiny, removable weight above the mounting bracket. For standard tonearms, leave the weight in place as usual. For low-mass tonearms, you have the ability to remove the weight, reducing the cartridge weigh to just 2.5g.

The Super OM 5E features an Elliptical stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback. Elliptical diamonds are able to follow the groove oscillations more accurately than spherical diamonds due to their contoured shape, resulting in better tracking and less distortion.
