The MC Windfeld Ti - a 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
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 MC Windfeld Ti has gone to the next level by
reducing unwanted vibrations and increasing the dynamic capability of
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.
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

"......the Windfeld Ti retained all of the sweetness and lushness of
the original Windfeld - something that makes it special in Ortofon's
line of mostly tonally neutral cartridges - which made it supremely
pleasurable to listen twice...
... Tonally and texturally, the
WIndfeld Ti reproduced massed strings as well as almost any other
cartridge I've heard: light and gossamer where required, yet also able
to dig in and grip...
...The original Windfeld was great for jazz and
classic, and specially voices; so was the Windfeld MkII, and it added
the dynamic slam to deliver orchestral music without making me wish
there was more to give on big climaxes...
...no one will be
disappointed by the Windfeld Ti's reproduction of space: if they were on
the recording, this cartridge delivered solid, three-dimensional images
on wide, deep, stable soundstages. With a VTF of 2.3 gm, the Windfeld
Ti tracked well everything I threw at it, especially sibilants..."
