features

Main bearing assembly

The MG-1 MkII main bearing is directly derived from the SG‐1 utilising exactly the same bearing spindle and ball with a phosphor bronze bearing housing machined using the same precision engineering techniques to our high standards. The materials used and manufacturing to extreme engineering tolerances make the MG-1 MkII main bearing silent, smooth running and second only to the SG-1. MG‐1 MkII main bearing is lubricated with Vertere proprietary formulated L‐1G record player main bearing oil for ultimate longevity.

Turntable motor

Directly derived from the RG-1 and SG-1 motor assembly design, the MG-1 MkII utilises double precision bearings fitted to its dedicated Acetal motor platform and motor bearing support. The motor is aligned using three spike pointed screws making the perfect residual vibration coupling of the motor to the platform itself. This unique design keeps the motor continuously synchronous to provide a drive with constant belt tension. Simply put, it drives the platter at constant speed without variation. As a finishing touch is the switchable internal mood lighting.

Main platter

MG‐1 MkII platter is a one piece aluminium alloy design based on the SG‐1 platter. Only utilising the same precision machining techniques to our extremely high tolerances ensures the smoothest running of the platter and the required inertia that keeps speed constant. Platter/Record interface is a 3mm bonded cast Acrylic disc as used on the SG‐1.

SG-1 MkIII Motor Drive

It is absolutely critical that the record player motor is powered and controlled faultlessly to ensure a full and musical performance of the record player. The SG-1 MkIII Motor Drive has new enhanced circuitry for speed accuracy, power delivery. The MkIII utilises two fully protected output power devices with much improved control of the motor. The new output circuit provides the platter with constant and smoother drive. Added for ease of use are three motor noise-eliminating pots, now accessible from the underside of the unit. Elegant and simple to use with a ‘super charged’ engine under its bonnet!

RG-1/SG-1/MG-1 Record Player Dust Cover

There is an optional dust cover that fully encloses the RG-1 while aesthetically complimenting the elegant lines and design of the turntable.

The main section covering the top, front and the back is a one piece 6mm clear cast acrylic providing support and rigidity with cut-outs for motor drive and tonearm cables. The sides are made from 3mm clear cast acrylic also including hand-grip cut-outs for easy placement and removal of the cover.

A Vertere emblem, laser engraved on the top adds the finishing touch to this elegant and practical record player dust cover.

MG-1 II Record Player Dust Cover

There is an optional custom dust cover for the MG-1 MkII that aesthetically compliments the stylish lines and design of the record player. The main section covering the sides and the top is constructed from a one piece 6mm tinted cast acrylic providing support and rigidity. The open design at the back provides clearance for the protruding motor drive and tonearm cables while the side’s

Special Metallic Finishes

Vertere Special Metallic Black, Pearlescent White & Champagne finishes are now available for the SG-1 record player at a premium. Following in the footsteps of the RG-1, these lustrous, vibrant colours provide perfect alternatives to the original Clear finish of the SG-1. Clear cast acrylic was carefully selected for SG-1’s plinth material as it provides the most stable and acoustically suitable platform for all its critical components. The specially formulated paint and method of printing of these glistening finishes enhance the aesthetics without any compromise in performance of the SG-1 record player. The Vertere emblem printed on the top plinth adds the final finishing touch.

MG-1 MkII Motor Cover

The elegant silver anodised MG-1 MkII Motor Cover is machined from solid aluminium alloy. It makes accessibility and placement of the drive belt easy and a delight to use. The cover also acts as a diffuser for the two illuminating LED lights, within the MG-1 MkII Record Player, complementing its stunning looks. Simple, elegant, beautiful.

Redline Cable Package

The MG-1 MkII record player comes packaged with the new Redline tonearm cable and motor link cable for the SG-1 Super Groove Motor Drive MKIII. The Vertere Redline cable system is derived from Pulse-R interconnect cable and follows the same design principles preserving the essence of the analogue audio signal.
