This highly advanced design, which is the world’s most hi-tech analogue cartridge, may be seen as a tribute to Ortofon’s departed engineer Per Windfeld, who had for more than 30 years been a feature of the high-end culture as the head of development behind amazing cartridges such as the Ortofon MC 20 Super, Concorde, MC Rohmann, MC Jubilee, Kontrapunkt Series, etc.
Featuring Ortofon’s patented Wide Range Damping, a zero-resonance housing, a neodymium magnet with field stabilisation and exotic materials throughout, along with an ultra-fine polished diamond, the Windfeld really lives up to the PW signature that it proudly displays on the body.
Hi-Fi News regarded this as an ‘Outstanding Product’.
Awarded 5 Globes in Hi-Fi World.
Ortofon themselves invite serious audiophiles to pay tribute to Per Windfeld with this serious candidate for “the world’s best cartridge”
