Rating Ortofon Super OM20
 
I am totally impressed with the Super OM20! Great definition in the mid range, excellent stereo separation and with output voltage around 4mV, it really hits my pre amp for a very lively and dynamic sound. The highs are present and smooth. I have not heard any distortion what so ever. The lows are smooth but I did have to adjust the volume up a little on my sub. The stylus tip really sits down inside the groove which all but eliminates any ticks or pops from dust scratches.

Rating Nice! Super OM 20
 
Recently added new belt and RCA connects to 1980 Dual CS506 TT. Listened closely to my original Ortofon LM-10 and I could distinguish some muddiness in tone and wasn't happy with it (after 30 years!). Decided to replace cartridge and all with this item. Can't remember how good the 10 sounded 30 years ago, but right now am rediscovering my LP collection with this 20. Sounds SO good and this cartridge made a big difference over my old one that obviously needed replaced. Excellent sound.

Rating Best of the SUPER OM
 
The Super OM 20 has been, for me, the sweet spot for the Super OM line. I have used the Super OM 30 and found that it was a tad to clinical sounding. The 20 just fits the bill. It tracks great and sounds like music, not science, so you can listen for hours on end. A nice alternative to the V15 Type III.

this is an excellent needly and cartridge. i have ortofon om 5s cartridges on my 2 other 1200s and the difference is quite remarkable, granted this one goes through a nice tube preamp before mixer.
