OM Series

The OM 5E is a magnetic cartridge (MM) with an elliptical shaped stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback for general purpose applications.

As previously found on many of our award-winning introductory turntables, such as the iconic Pro-Ject Debut; the OM5E is a highly affordable but very competent true hi-fi cartridge. Using the same body type as the rest of Ortofon's instantly recognisable OM series, this model is a great accompaniment to your entry-level hi-fi set-up.

Please note, any OM-series replacement stylus will fit in this body, including the Stylus 78.

Key Features:

  • Introductory overhead mount cartridge 
  • Optimised sound reproduction
  • distortion-free playback
  • Elliptical stylus profile
  • Easy tonearm matching
