This is the version of the OM10E cartridge that is supplied with some Dual turntables; as such it does not have the normal retail packaging but does include mounting nuts and bolts.

As it can track at low tracking force (1.5g) it is best suited to light tonearms. If in doubt of suitability for your turntable please make an enquiry by email or phone.

The OMB 10 is a magnetic cartridge (MM) with an elliptical shaped stylus that is a great foray into the world of HiFi, based off of the proven and time-tested OM series.

A very good budget cartridge.

By: on 1 November 2013
G'day all, this is a very good cartridge for little cost. I've just written a review of three 'budget' phono cartridges that can be read here: http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/my-personal-ranking-of-three-budget-phono-cartridges-and-why.333072/ I give the OMB10 top marks! One thing of possible concern are the listed specifications for this cartridge on this website. They are incorrect! The OMB10 is essentially a 'standard' OM10 body with the '10' stylus. The specifications shown for it on this page are actually for the OM10 'Super' version. I have actually measured the coil resistance of each channel for the OMB10 and confirmed that it is indeed a 'standard' OM10. This sort of standards 'inaccuracy' seems to be common around the internet amongst online vendors. Regardless, the OMB10 is a superb cartridge by any measure. It is highly recommended! Regards, Felix Scerri.
