One of the world’s most hi-tech analogue cartridges
Ortofon developed the MC Windfeld moving coil pick-up cartridge as an example of how state-of-the-art technology can be used to develop the ultimate phono cartridge.This highly advanced design, which is arguably the world’s most hi-tech analogue cartridge, was also developed as a tribute to Ortofon’s then-departing chief engineer, Per Windfeld, who for more than 30 years had been a feature of the high-end culture. In his long time as an engineer at Ortofon, Mr Windfeld oversaw the development of some truly amazing cartridges, such as the Ortofon MC 20, Concorde, Rohmann, Jubilee and Kontrapunkt models.
Per Windfeld falls into the category of true Hi-Fi visionaries. His massive contribution has been a feature of the development of cartridges all over the world, ever since he emerged in the mid-1970s as head of development for the famous MC 20 cartridge, which became the modern successor of the SPU model.
It is because of these successes that Ortofon are able to pay tribute to Per Windfeld with a newly developed, state-of-the-art, moving coil cartridge in the absolute high-end class. In terms of design technology, the Ortofon MC Windfeld is of course based on many of the most important innovations and patents that Per Windfeld secured for Ortofon over his thirty years with the company...

What a great cartridge I upgraded from a 2m black and the difference is amazing. The communication and the shipping was great everything that was promised was delivered I would definitely order from them again
