Ortofon has now extended the range of the Exclusives Series to include the brand new MC Windfeld Ti

In continuation of the Ortofon design tradition and the new paradigm in engineering and manufacturing, we are proud to introduce the MC Windfeld Ti, a new moving coil phono cartridge in the absolute high-end class.

At the heart of the MC Windfeld Ti lies a revolutionary customized Selective Laser Melting manufacturing technology pioneered by Ortofon for manufacturing of the legendary MC A90 in 2008. The use of Titanium in the MC Windfeld Ti has provided a further improvement to the overall rigidity of the structure and the cartridge weight.

Our extensive knowledge of vibration properties, characteristics in different shapes and materials, competences in magnetism, mechanical design and new technologies has been applied for optimization of the MC Windfeld model. The new MC Windfeld Ti has gone to the next level by reducing unwanted vibrations and increasing the dynamic capability of the cartridge.

Those who choose to adopt the MC Windfeld Ti will experience the lifelike, dynamic and open sound, with exceedingly clear midrange. The MC Windfeld Ti remains extremely musical while paying close attention to micro dynamic details, with its delicate, but also analytical nature.

The mechanical integration of the MC Windfeld Ti

Historically, Ortofon has always followed its own path with regard to the mechanical design of the cartridge housing, because mechanical rigidity and total freedom from resonance in the audible range are a precondition for optimal sound quality.

In the MC Windfeld Ti the cartridge?s contact with the tonerarm takes place through three hard, well-defined contact points placed on the fastening section of the cartridge. This means that the mechanical integration of the cartridge and the tonearm arm are always absolutely perfect.

Flexibility and performance with a range of compatibility

With optimized weight and moderate compliance to suit the majority of modern tonearms, the MC Windfeld Ti is easy compatible with an endless array of contemporary high-end turntable equipment, including the Ortofon TA-210 and TA-110 tonearms.

A low output impedance of 7 ohm and a medium output voltage of 0.2 mV makes the Ortofon MC Windfeld Ti a perfect partner for most MC pre-amps as well as step-up transformers, including the Ortofon ST-80 SE.

When combined with Ortofon?s world-class knowledge in analogue sound reproduction, The MC Windfeld Ti will undoubtedly provide sound which is literally unsurpassed and simply has to be experienced.
