1 $134.95


The Ortofon OM 5E is a moving magnet cartridge for general-purpose replacement. It features an elliptical stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback. Elliptical diamonds are able to follow the groove oscillations more accurately than spherical shapes due to their contoured shape. This results in better tracking and less distortion.
