Moving Magnet Spherical Stylus

The replacement stylus OM 5S is recommended for the OM 5S cartridge. With a spherical stylus, the OM 5S is easy to align, and robust enough to deliver hours of listening pleasure. 

The Ortofon OM5s Stylus is an optional replacement for your existing Ortofon OM cartridge. It features a Tipped Spherical 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.
