ORTOFON Super OM 40 Turntable Cartridge | Limited Stock

The super OM was Ortofon's best of the OM series with the best internal components for superior sound.  Only OM cartridges marked super OM can bring out the finest clarity details not possible on Ortofon's OM and OMB cartridges.

As pictured above, this is our Ortofon Super OM40 cartridge;  assembled in house of all 100% genuine Ortofon components.  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 40 as our technician inspects the cartridge prior to shipment. Unlike their new 2M 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.  As always, a brass weight can be removed inside the cartridge, making the OM series compatible with ULM Ultra Low Mass tonearms offered by Dual.  Includes 1 year USA based warranty. 

The Super OM40 moving magnet cartridge is the marriage of a the top of the line Ortofon Stylus 40 with the series constant Super OM cartridge. So, if you start with a Super OM cartridge mated with a 10, 20 or 30 stylus you can upgrade the stylus to a #40 and you will have this Super OM 40 cartridge. Or, you can save money in the long run by starting here, at the top with the Super OM 40.

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.

Ortofon Super OM 40 Catridge
Strongly recommend. I upgraded from a OM-10 supplied with a Dual CS460 turntable I recently purchased. The Super OM cartridge performed better (resolution and overall clarity) compared to the OM-10 but also to the STY-40 I swapped from another turntable to determine if the upgrade made some sense. The Super OM cartridge is an improvement over the regular OM .

Ortofon Super OM 40
I have favored a good MM or MI cart over some of the MC ones I've heard based on thier bold and vibrant presentation. The Super OM 40 is stellar in its detail, timbre and forward deliver. Talk about neutral as well clarity. I highly recommend this cartridge and turntable needles as the place to shop.
