MØRCH DP-8 Anisotropic Tonearm - Follow-up

NAD C 165BEE Preamplifier

NAD Electronics is well known for offering products that defy the expected price/performance ratio.

The Ortofon Per Windfeld phono cartridge was developed in 2008 as a tribute to retired engineer Per Windfeld who worked for Ortofon for more than 30 years. He was instrumental in the development of the MC 20 Super and Rohmann cartridges, and also the Kontrapunkt and Jubilee cartridges which were previously reviewed here on 10 Audio.
