Comments about Ortofon OMEGA General Purpose Turntable Cartridge:

I bought this cartridge for an older Technics turntable I inherited. I was having a hard time getting my head around spending a lot of money on a cartridge for a turntable that was possibly not working. So I researched the Ortofon Omega, and was impressed by other reviews. The reviews were right, the Omega is awesome! I set the needle distance using an alignment protractor and set the weight and anti-skate. The sound reproduction is excellent. I've played many old albums including: jazz, classic rock, classical, and big band. My 20-yo son gets a kick our of listening to "old vinyl". Highly recommended!

Comments about Ortofon OMEGA General Purpose Turntable Cartridge:

After my first two Grado FTE +1 NOS carts had worn out, I purchased an Audio Technica AT-11E, which never broke in. I started searching for a replacement cartridge and Ortofon seemed like the brand to go for. Turns out, this sounds better than the first set of carts I purchased NOS (which are supposed to be better than today's stuff). The Ortofon is sleek and installs without hassle, if you have the patience. Luckily EVG makes a replacement OM stylus for $17, so that beats having to buy another Omega again.

    Comments about Ortofon OMEGA General Purpose Turntable Cartridge:

    Excellent good value non-DJ cart. A bit fiddly to properly align. Take your time with this cart to get it right. It will reward you and your vinyl with great, well balanced sound. IMHO, best "budget" cart around. More detailed than the Audio Technica AT 95e in my home system. Super bang for the buck.
