The MC Windfeld was developed in 2008 using state-of-the-art technology.
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.
MC Windfeld is designed by a team headed by Mr.Windfeld's successor, Leif Johannsen, the Ortofon's Chief Officer of Acoustics and Technology and the cartridge bears Mr.Windfeld's name - his initials "PW" are inscribed in gold on the cartridge's side.
The Windfeld retains many of Per Windfeld's earlier design innovations, including Per Windfeld's patented Wide Range Damping (WRD) 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 and a strong neodymium magnet system with a Field Stabilizing Element (FSE) located within the magnet system.
