Ortofon's MC Windfeld Ti impresses...
Ortofon released the MC Windfeld Ti as a replacement for their stunning MC Windfeld, which are part of Ortofons exclusive range of products. The new Ti version, however, brings a range of enhancements and improvements to its predecessor.
Most people who are familiar with Ortofon will notice that the body, while a new design is very similar to the Cadenza range, and interestingly the central band of the MC Windfeld Ti body is made using a revolutionary Selective Laser Melting (SLM) manufacturing technology, which Ortofon also use in the MC Anna!
Titanium is used to help reduce vibrations through the cartridge and increase its dynamic capability.
The Ortofon Replicant 100 boasts a thin and light profile with an impressively long vertical contact surface, making it as close as possible to an original record cutting stylus. By specially polishing the stylus and then mounting it onto a boron cantilever, the cartridge can offer remarkable transparency, speed, and responsiveness beyond that of any other combination.
