Update for the Vertere Turntable DG-1

British manufacturer Vertere Acoustics introduces an improved version of its most affordable turntable, which is said to offer many improvements and is named DG-1 S.

Among the improvements the new DG-1 S offers when compared to its predecessor, Vertere cites higher resolution, more dynamic range, and a better stereo separation. To deliver that, Touraj Moghaddam's new turntable carries, among other things, the "Groove Runner S" tonearm, which has also been improved and whose Kevlar threaded bearing can now be adjusted in tension and azimuth. The accompanying horizontal nylon bearing is also said to be improved and thus more consistent.

In the new DG-1 S, the flat Groove Runner S tonearm consists of two layers, between which the also flat PCB that transmits the pickup signals lies. Each of the two layers is made of five layers of polymer laminate, and the new design is intended to make adjustments to the tonearm easier, among other things. By default, the new DG-1 S carries the Magneto cartridge, also from Vertere.

Another new feature in the new DG-1 is the turntable's motor drive, where, among other things, new software in the motor drive is said to further reduce vibration and noise, while the design of the motor drive is said to prepare it for possible updates as well as reduce noise as well. Also, the platter's bearing is said to have been improved and, along with the precision tungsten carbide ball, is said to deliver less noise and rumble, among other things, as well as put less strain on the motor.

According to the manufacturer, the new Vertere DG-1 S is supposed to be available starting in September, at a price of about €4150 / $4995 / £3550 including the pickup Magneto.
