Replacement stylus for Ortofon 5E series cartridges

Moving Magnet Tipped Elliptical Stylus

The Ortofon OM5e Stylus is an optional replacement for your existing Ortofon OM cartridge. It features a Tipped Elliptical stylus profile. 

You should upgrade your stylus when it starts to collect a lot of dust after each playback or when you notice some distortion and channel separation during listening. 

We find with proper care, up to 1000 hours is possible without degradation of performance. To get more hours out of your next stylus, consider a Clean It stylus brush or Vinyl Clean compound to compliment your new stylus purchase.
