This ORTOFON SUPER OM10  is a very safe choice to enter the high level cartridge market.  It comes standard with the STY-10 (Ortofon Stylus 10).  Later, if you so chose, you can upgrade only the stylus to Ortofon's STY-20, STY-30, or STY-40 and you will be creating a 100% genuine  SUPER OM20, SUPER OM30 or SUPER OM40 as the case may be.

The "SUPER"  cartridges shown below  not only come in the factory packaging but also sports significant internal design improvements that allow them to fully accommodate every aspect of the improved performance that the STY-20, STY-30, or STY-40 has over the STY-10.  The cartridge bodies of the SUPER OM10, SUPER OM20, SUPER OM30 & SUPER OM40 are all the same, only the stylus changes.

Rating Good Cartridge
 
It took around 3 weeks even with first class international to receive the cartridge. So i must say it was a fast delivery. The cartridge is nice and effective. I installed it, did the necessary adjustments with the arm and tracing force. It plays pretty nice with a bright detailed sound. Thanks.

Rating Nice sounding great cartridge
 
I received this morning of Aug. 3 by mail. It is very beautiful and sounds much clearer and vibrant impeccable than my old Shure M91ED (1976). We feel much less distortion and better transition between musical instruments. I still can not believe I am still under the emotion. Anyway, I can tell you that this is an investment that is definitely worth. I recommend this model.

I upgraded my dual TT from a ulm55e cartridge to the super OM10. There is a huge sound difference. I bought the super 10 because it is upgradeable, light, and vintage warm tones. I have been happy with the STY-10, especially with the change in the bass response and volume. Shipping was quick and well packaged. I don't have enough experience to compare it to high-end cartridges. But I think it is a good place to start for the budding audiophile.

Since the late 70s I've used many carts and always go back to Ortofon. The Super OM10 with a STY-30 stylus is a phenomenal combination. Compared to my OM5E and OM10 I now hear individual notes in the chords of music and much more depth like hearing audio 3D. This is a serious entry in the audiophile realm and I now know why many rave about vinyl depth and clarity with higher end equipment. And these are on sale now! Such a deal ! ! !
