Genuine Ortofon Turntable Stylus 30


Replaces: ORTOFON STYLUS 30 (STY-30) Fine Line

A Special Customer FYI Notice from our senior tech:
While this Ortofon stylus 30 can be used in any Ortofon
SUPER OM, OM, OMP, OMB or TM series cartridge, its use in any Ortofon cartridge NOT specifically marked " SUPER" on the cartridge body will result in a slight loss of potential performance. Ortofon cartridges marked " SUPER" are built to a higher internal performance standard than Ortofon OM, OMP, OMB or TM series cartridges which do not have the word " SUPER" on the cartridge body.

Please Note: You will receive a factory original 100% genuine Ortofon 30 (STY-30) needle, with the Ortofon logo. Please see 'Related Products' at the bottom of this page for cheaper, yet still compatible, alternatives.

NOTE: Because this needle is designed for use specifically with Ortofon cartridges, it can be found in numerous brands of turntables. In some cases the cartridges for this needle may be original equipment supplied with a new turntable, but was more likely selected at time of sale to complete a turntable sold without a cartridge or later as an upgrade to the original cartridge supplied by the turntable manufacturer. This needle should be matched primarily to the cartridge type not necessarily the turntable.

wow what a great stylus. I have been using the OM 20 for years, and decided to make a jump "upward". boy am i glad i did. Three huge improvements. Low end is tighter and warmer. High end is crystal clear, and lastly there is less audible surface noise with less than perfect slabs a vinyl. Extremely pleased with this purchase

OM 20 - OM 30 upgrade
Dropping $200+ for a stylus is far more than i ever have even thought to spend but im very glad i did. Even on a relatively low end turntable (Dual 505-4) the difference in performance is clear. Fuller freq response, more top end, less sibilance, less distortion, less surface noise.

OM30 is a Great product, It did improve the quality of the playing. Treble are more crisp than my previous OM10. Make sure than the tracking force is well adjusted to get the most benefit of your $200 stylus. Enjoy RF

Ortofon OM30 Styli
Definitely a nice upgrade from the Ortofon OM10 making vinyl sound the way it was meant to. A bit pricey but if value your vinyl collection this styli is worth the investment.

Technically excellent, but..
First, kudos to TurntableNeedles for prompt shipment and response to questions. Installed the 30 stylus as an upgrade to a Super OM10 cart. It's a radical change from the 10, which tended to sound quite bass-heavy and had some occasional distortion. The 30 tracks superbly with no audible inner-goove distortion and a dead-quiet background. It's a lot less bass-heavy and tilts much brighter than the 10, but the bass response goes very deep when called for. What is does mostly, for better or worse, is magnify the differences between vinyl LPs, where some sound great and others sound thin and a bit shrill. The 30 Super brings out a lot of details missed by my previous carts by not magnifying any particular instrument over another. It very much sounds like a digital music source in this regard, but with better detail. I was looking to get the sound quality level of a 2M Bronze at a lower cost, and with higher compliance to match my lightweight tonearm (vintage Harman-Kardon T60C turntable). It's a definite improvement over the 2M Red and Blue and Super OM10, but not totally satisfying nonetheless. I listen to a mix of classical, jazz, rock, and Americana, mostly older vinyl.

Ortofon 30 stylus
Excellent stylus, pricey but well worth it. I would do it again. Huge improvement over my 10 and at least as good as my 40, and it’s not really broken in yet.
