Vertere SG1/RG1 Record player
- Regular price £12,500.00
At the heart of any record player is its main bearing. Vertere RG‐1 record player utilises probably the highest precision bearing assembly designed for a record player. As a result the drive system can rotate the platter assembly absolutely smoothly and silently. Thus the record is presented to the tonearm and cartridge without any unwanted bearing noise. Directly derived from the unparalleled RG‐1 main Bearing, the SG-1 performs second only to the RG‐1. Based on the same design, geometry and similar precision engineering techniques, the SG‐1 bearing is made to our highest standards. Both RG‐1 & SG‐1 main bearings are lubricated with Vertere proprietary formulated L‐1G record player main bearing oil. 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 Motor Drive does just that. Designed to keep the motor under control providing it with smooth and constant drive. Elegant and simple to use with a ‘super charged’ engine under its bonnet! One look at the record player motor assembly and the depth and innovativeness of its design become apparent. Using precision bearings to articulate the proprietary aluminium alloy motor housing keeps the motor continuously synchronous achieving constant belt tension. Simply put, it drives the platter at constant speed without interference. RG-1 platter assembly is a unique two piece super precision machined aluminium alloy design that provides friction only damping of the platter assembly. The main platter has a critically designed surface profile on its top side that perfectly matches the underside of the reference platter insert. The two parts fit so precisely that the assembly creates a linearly damped, non‐resonant structure. The underside of the main platter is precision machined to provide a perfect fit to the main spindle block for accurate turning. It also has highest peripheral mass to maximise inertia to weight ratio. This ensures constant speed while eliminating undue pressure on the main bearing contact point. Maximum performance, maximum longevity. Topside of the RG‐1 platter insert is precision machined to provide the bonding area for the 2mm cast Acrylic record interface disc. The underside, on the other hand, is done as the precise fit to the topside of the main platter. Six small stainless screws, 3 on the top and 3 on the underside ensure the two pieces are held perfectly in non‐resonant position. SG‐1 platter is a one piece aluminium alloy design based on the RG‐1 platter. It is precision machined to highest tolerances to ensure smooth running and provide necessary inertia to ensure constant speed. Platter/Record interface is a 3mm bonded cast Acrylic disc similar to the RG‐1.
