Very good reviews in the trade press. Firm bass, finely resolved mid tones and fresh, brilliant trebles. Very good channel separation thanks to the elliptical diamond needle with high compliance level.
The OMB 5E is an industrial system that is based on the super OM10 but with larger Manufacturing tolerances. The needle is polished elliptical, but not as costly polished as the larger models. A very inexpensive universal system!
