The new model is an improved version of its DG-1 record player
Audio technology company Vertere has announced a new model of its popular DG-1 turntable is due for release this September, the DG-1S Dynamic Groove.
The new model improves on the three-year-old product with added features and new mechanics. DG-1S is set to be released in September priced at £3,550 on HiFi Corner.
“Our award-winning DG-1 just got better. The new DG-1S delivers higher resolution replay, greater dynamic contrasts, improved stereo separation with greater precision while at the same time keeping the musicality the DG-1 is known for,” reads the product’s description.

The new and improved model features improved platter bearing with more precise mechanics and “polishing operations” making it run smoothly with lower noise, rumble, and less rotational variability.
The DG-1S design also features a ‘Groove Runner S’ arm made from “a five-layer polymer laminate bonded to a second five-layer polymer laminate”. The flexible arm is promised to see improvements to counterweights and cartridge alignment.
“The Vertical Kevlar thread bearing is now adjustable for tension and azimuth. The Horizontal nylon thread bearing is now fitted with greater precision to ensure even greater consistency,” reads the description.
