The OM 40 is the best cartridge within the Super OM series – and some say the best moving magnet cartridge made by Ortofon. With its Fritz Gyger stylus, it resolves the grooves with celestial eloquence, clarity and grace. Its classic Ortofon performance and highly regarded musicality rival the high energy sound of the best 2M series.
