Ortofon Super OM30 Phono Cartridge

Cartridge out of production - Please see OMB30 Cartridge with needle here.

Although Ortofon has discontinued their Super OM series cartridges, we have a limited supply of N.O.S. (New Old Stock) Genuine Ortofon Super OM cartridges. We install a new current production Genuine Ortofon Stylus 30 as our technician inspects the cartridge prior to shipment. Unlike their new series, the Super OM series remains 100% compatible with virtually all known standard mount tonearms as of press time. So the Super OM series remains a popular choice for any quality standard mount tonearm. Includes 1 year warranty.

How do I adjust tracking pressure and anti skate?
If you are lucky enough to have these two adjustments, move tracking force counter weight until the needle hovers perfectly balanced above the record. Now rotate the dial with numbers (not the weight itself) to zero. (this is zero grams pressure on record) then rotate weight AND numbers together to the recommended tracking pressure for your needle. Then rotate anti skate to have a setting of equal value. Basically you want the least amount of needle pressure pushing down on the record as possible without it skipping or sounding bad. That will give you the longest life from your needle and records.

NOTE: Anti skate is adjusting side to side pressure WITHIN GROOVE of record. Tracking pressure is how hard the needle is pushing down inside the groove.


If your tonearm has a height-adjustable base, make sure the arm is parallel with the record surface.

Super Optimal Match 30
This cartridge could technically be considered a vintage cartridge as the Optimal Match (OM) series was originally introduced back in the 1980's replacing the original VMS and F/FF line of cartridges. The Super OM 30 is essentially the same as the Super OM 20 except that it sports a Nude Fine Line stylus. What do you get from the OM 30 over the OM 20? A lot more detail and finer resolution. HOWEVER, in terms of listening enjoyment, I still think the Super OM 20 is hands-down the winner!

Super 30, Really is!
From a member of "The Vinyl Engine", whom is very astute in the nuances of phono cartridges. "I think it's an outstanding value for a cartridge that is rather unique in sound. If neutral and crystal clear is what you are looking for, this is the one that will give it to you. It reminds me of putting quality polarized UV sunglasses on and it's amazing how they cut right through the haze and suddenly you can see each individual leaf on every tree even those ones that are very far away. Amazing."
