“The Ortofon OM (Optimum Match) is a magnetic cartridge with an elliptical shaped stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback for general purpose applications.

It is a perfect match to most tonearms. Ingeniously tucked into the top of the mounting bracket is a tiny, removable weight-plate which adapts to the type of tonearm you have.

It makes possible to upgrade the performance of an entire music system very easily by upgrading the stylus. A wide range of replacement styli for OM cartridges is available.

With the OM cartridge you instantly hear the improvement. Music you’ve heard many times takes on new dimensions.”
