Ortofon MC Windfeld Phono Cartridge :
 
The Ortofon MC Windfeld phono cartridge 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. 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:
- 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.

The MC Windfeld can ideally be combined with the Ortofon TA-210 and TA-110 tonearms and the ST-80 SE MC transformer.
