MC WindfeldIn 2008 Ortofon was paying tribute to Per Windfeld with a newly developed, state of the art Moving Coil in the absolute high-end class. The Ortofon MC Windfeld not only beared Mr. Windfeld’s name, but his initials “PW” are inscribed in gold on the cartridge’s side.

Naturally, the MC Windfeld retains many of Per Windfeld’s earlier design innovations, including the Wide Range Damping (WRD) system, the ultra-fine polished version of extremely low mass, large-vertical-contact Ortofon Replicant 100 diamond and a strong neodymium magnet system with a Field Stabilizing Element (FSE) located within the magnet system.
