Fitted as standard to many budget turntables, the Ortofon OM 5E is a classic budget cartridge.

Low wear and easily changed stylus

Using an elliptical-shaped stylus, the OM 5E offers both a neutral and balanced sound quality while also offering low wear on your precious vinyl. The detachable stylus can be changed at any time (at additional cost) for other models in the OM range, including the dedicated Stylus 78 - for use with 78 speed turntables and records. Gold-plated connection pins provide a long lasting and low resistance connection, while its open lugs and elegant design make it easy to fit.

For an affordable cartridge you can rely on, the Ortofon OM 5E won't disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vinyl, the sound of the future An avid record collector in the 70s and 80s, I moved over to the "modern" CD as they took over. I purchased the Ortofon cartridge to bring my old turntable back to life and am once again enjoying the wonderful warm sound of great music on vinyl. The OM 5E gives a magnificent sound on budget price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade Richer Sounds came up top trumps again. My first stylus broke and wanted to upgrade my cartridge anyway. Sounds so much better and good for the price. Will always use and trust Richer Sounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You've brought my vinyl records back from the dead All praise to Richer Sounds Holborn for their knowledgeable advice and assistance. The new cartridge head, together with a good quality anti-static brush, both chosen from a list of alternatives, have brought my classical vinyls, many of them 50 or 60 years old, back to vibrant life. It's as if they had been restored from the dead. I'm over the moon.
