Ortofon Super OM20 Phono Cartridge





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 20 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.







From Legacy Ortofon Literature:
The Ortofon Super OM Cartridges
OM Series- The new Super OM cartridges have been designed on the basis of Ortofon's lightweight moving magnet system - originally introduced in the OM (Optimum Match) Series - with two major refinements. By means of advanced computer simulation methods, it has been possible to define the natural pivot point of the system with unprecedented accuracy while achieving an optimum oscillation balance. This translates into improved linearity, higher channel separation, and reduced distortion.

In addition, Ortofon has succeeded in developing a technique by which to slit the less than 1 mm diameter hollow pole pins, thus significantly reducing eddy current losses caused by magnetic hysteresis. This sophisticated technology extends the frequency range and improves phase linearity. The cartridge body is manufactured from a Noryl plastic/glass combination, which ensures high rigidity, and freedom from resonances.

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.

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.

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.

Great deal on a good needle
Perhaps the OM 30 might be even better, but I could afford the OM 20, and TN gave a great price. This was a complete and proper refit of an old replacement cartridge and needle for my Dual 708Q. With the weight removed this OM 20 is a fantastic retro-fit. Records sound clean, it sings. Some say it is cold, I heard warmth and depth, and great clarity/separation of sound (stereo as well as minute sound variation). Would buy again in a heart beat.

Happy Dual
I have been using MC cartridges for the past several years and recently picked up a Dual CS-5000 from a friend with no cartridge. After researching on-line for cartridge suggestions the consensus seemed to be the Ortofon OM series or Super OM. I had to decide which Super OM to go with. Either the 20 or 30. I decided on the 20 as it seemed that from what I read the 30 wasn't worth move up. Glad I did. The Super OM 20 was easy to install and align and it sound good right off the bat. Decent bass but not overblown. It's can't hang with a good low output MC as far as detail is concerned but there's enough there to keep a listener engaged in the music without being too analytical. I have experienced any inner groove distortion and it's a good tracker with all types of music. I haven't had a burning desire to get back to my Bluenote Bellavista/Benz Micro Glider combo yet so I guess I don't feel like I'm missing anything with the Super OM 20. Shipping was quick and the cartridge was packed well. It was a pleasure to do business with TurntableNeedles.com

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.
