Ortofon MC Windfeld
Ottawa - 613-731-4434 | Toronto Queen St. - 416-530-9703
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.
In the MC Windfeld, Ortofon continues to build on the structure of the Kontrapunkt series, in which the cartridge housing's contact with the pick-up arm takes place through three hard, well-defined points, i.e. a kind of spikes. This means that the mechanical integration of the cartridge and the pick-up arm are always absolutely perfect. This makes the MC Windfeld one of Ortofon's strongest and resonance-free cartridges, with a direct mechanical connection between the motor and the tonearm. What this means for the dynamics, resolution and richness of detail in the sound simply has to be experienced.
