Ortofon MC Winfield Cartridge« back
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.
It is because of his great successes and vast accumulated knowledge, that Ortofon decided to make the MC Windfeld a true example of high-end cartridge technology.
The sound performance and technical specifications are so breath-taking in this new design, because a number of new and well-tested components and theories have been combined to make a true master-piece of the high-end world. Click the links below to learn more about each concept...
