This is an ex-demonstration model in excellent condition. We are selling due to demo stock rotation. It is the older package which comes with the D-Fi connecting cable and tonearm cable instead of the new redline versions which this model comes with now. It also comes the SG-1 motor drive and SG-1 tonearm. No cartridge is included in this price but we can supply and fit a cartridge if necessary. This also comes with the MG-1 dust cover.
We have the original packaging and accessories.
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, 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.
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
