With the Ortofon cartridge I find it to be very accurate, articulate and responds very well to the music I play.  From deep base to synthy highs, I am more than happy.  The cartridge, transformer and MM input work just fine.  Bring round a bag of records, and see what you think for yourself.

 

I have absolutely no doubt, Dub, that your system:

a.  sounds great, and

b.  makes you very happy.

 

So there is absolutely no benefit to me - or to you - for me to bring some LPs over and just 'have a listen'.

 

Where I'm coming from is ... are you getting the best out of your Winfield ti?  IOW can your system sound better - by loading your cart differently?

 

If you're happy with how it is ... then that's great!  :thumb:  (I'm never at this stage - I'm always thinking about how I can make mine sound even better:lol: )

 

But if you're at all curious as to whether it can sound better ... this needs experimentation with a 20x headamp and a stash of load plug values.  Which I'm happy to bring over.

 

Of course, it may well turn out that the best load for the Winfied ti is  93 ohms (or, rather, a 100 ohm resistor in the case of the head amp).  But until you experiment with different loads ... you will never know.  :)

I’m enjoying mine a lot also. Pic was from first quick install to make sure there were no issues. Final setup incl a USB scope, Feickert Protractor & AnalogMagik software.
