The Ortofon OM-5E phono cell is a model of MM technology, mid-range of OM cells from the Danish manufacturer Ortofon.
Ortofon OM-5E: wide compatibility
Ortofon OM-5E This cell aims to ensure compatibility with a maximum number of vinyl turntable arms. This extended compatibility requirement is reflected in the name of this unit: OM for Optimum Match.
Thus, the manufacturer included in this cell a removable tin flyweight. Weighing two grams, it can be removed or left to balance the arm with a maximum of turntables.
Ortofon OM-5E: excellent value for money
This cell has attractive characteristics. It has an Elliptical profile diamond. The latter offers a very good follow-up of the groove of the vinyl records. The variations contained in the grooves are transcribed by a generator of MM technology (Moving Magnet). The frequency response of this cell is between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. The channel separation is 22 dB.
This unit is a benchmark for the core range decks. Ideal for taking your first steps in Hi-Fi, the Ortofon OM-5E offers great musicality for a very affordable price.
