Taking vinyl replay beyond what’s possible in this turntable class, Record Player MG-1 Magic Groove includes critical design elements of the SG-1 Player.
A superlative design, Record Player MG-1 Magic Groove offers fabulous performance that’s bettered only by Vertere’s RG-1 Reference Groove and SG-1 Standard Groove. As with all Vertere turntables, every individual part is custom built, and has been created using the optimum materials and highest precision standards.
Includes: SG‐1 Motor Drive | D‐Fi Connecting Cable & SG‐1 Tonearm | D‐Fi Tonearm Cable
The MG-1 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 similar precision engineering techniques to our high standards. The materials used and manufacturing to extreme engineering tolerances make the MG-1 main bearing silent, smooth running and second only to the SG-1.
MG‐1 main bearing is lubricated with Vertere proprietary formulated L‐1G record player main bearing oil for ultimate longevity.
Directly derived from the RG-1 and SG-1 motor assembly design, the MG-1 utilises a single precision bearing fitted to its dedicated aluminium alloy motor platform and motor bearing support.
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.
MG‐1 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.
The MG-1 record player is also now available in the lustrous Special Metallic Black, Pearlescent White & Champagne finishes at a premium as the alternative finish to the original clear version.
Clear cast acrylic that was carefully selected for long-term stability and acoustic suitability is specially printed on the underside with these beautiful and bespoke metallic colours to enhance appearance without any compromise to the performance.
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 MkII Motor Drive has new enhanced circuitry for speed accuracy, power delivery. The MkII 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. Elegant and simple to use with a ‘super charged’ engine under its bonnet!
