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.
MC Windfeld is designed by a team headed by Mr. Windfeld's successor, Leif Johannsen, the Ortofon's Chief Acoustics and Development. The cartridge bears Mr. Windfeld's name - his initials "PW" are inscribed in gold on the cartridge's side.
The MC Windfeld can ideally be combined with the Ortofon TA-210 and TA-110 tonearms and the ST-80 SE MC transformer.
Leif Johannsen goes in depth of Per Windfeld's earlier design innovations, featuring the below design elements of the MC Windfeld cartridge:
• Wide Range Damping (WRD) system
• A strong neodymium magnet system with a Field Stabilizing Element (FSE) located within the magnet system.
• The ultra-fine polished version of extremely low mass, large-vertical-contact Replicant 100 diamond, capable to extract musical information from the grooves with a greater degree of accuracy than any other kind of needle
"...until the Windfeld, I can recall hearing none that produced such perfect symmetry of tonality and texture at both ends of the audioband - without inducing boredom, or a sensation of wanting more of something...
...The Ortofon Windfeld might be the most tonally neutral cartridge I've ever auditioned...
...Tonally and, especially texturally, I don't think you'll find a cartridge that's more evenhanded and honest than the Ortofon Windfeld...
...It's easy to recommend, regardless of your musical taste or associated components..."
