Moving coil cartridge

"...until the Windfeld, I can recall hearing none that produced such perfect symmetry of tonality and texture at both ends of the audioband - withoutinducing boredom, or a sensation of wanting more of something...
...The Ortofon Windfeld might be the most tonally neutral cartridge I've ever auditioned...
 ...Tonally and, especially texturally, I don't think you'll find a cartridge that's more evenhanded and honest than the Ortofon Windfeld...
...It's easy to recommend, regardless of your musical taste or associated components..."
