The OM 5S is a moving magnet cartridge for general purpose application

• The series is the lowest-mass range of moving magnet cartridges offered by Ortofon.
• The OM cartridges bodies have been designed to provide easy mounting and alignment on both top mount and bottom mount headshells.
• The OM 5 Series provides excellent compatibility when used in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.

If your tonearm has a standard headshell or a cartridge mount, then step up to optimal sound reproduction with OM’s. 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.

If your tonearm is a standard tonearm, just leave the weight-plate. If your tonearm is one of the low mass types, then simply remove the weight. The mass of your OM cartridge is now a mere 2.5 g.

The OM 5S features a Spherical stylus, a robust and economic solution for playback of vinyl records.
