Record Player DG-1 Dynamic Groove

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.

Why Record Player MG-1 Magic Groove?

  • A perfect match for Vertere’s SG-1 Tonearm, superbly built and a delight to use
  • Plays music with the intended emotion and real dynamics in a home environment


Main Bearing Assembly
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.

Record Player Motor Assembly
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 Turntable Main Platter
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.
MG-1 Motor Cover
The elegant silver anodised MG-1 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 Record Player, complementing its stunning looks. Simple, elegant, beautiful.

Motor Drive Power Supply
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 Tempo Motor Drive controls the motor perfectly and provides the platter with smooth and constant drive. Elegant and simple to use with a ‘super charged’ engine under its bonnet!

MG-1 Record Player Dust Cover
There is an optional dust cover for the MG-1 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 hand-grip cut-outs allow easy placement and removal of the cover. A Vertere emblem, laser engraved on the top adds the finishing touch to this elegant and practical MG-1 dust cover.

Special Metallic Black Print Finish
The MG-1 record player is also now available in the lustrous Special Metallic Black 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 of the MG-1 is specially printed on the underside to enhance appearance without any compromise to the performance.


Vertere’s Record Player MG-1 Magic Groove has many critical aspects of its design based on the Vertere SG-1 high performance record player. This has enabled the MG-1 to provide vinyl replay beyond what is possible from its class. Record Player MG-1 will realise the potential of any high quality audio system.

The MG-1 precision main bearing and platter assembly, belt-driven by the SG-1 motor system, ensures smoothest running and provides a stable platform for the tonearm and cartridge. This combination provides an exceptionally wide dynamic range with ‘dark’ background that is only bettered by RG-1 or SG-1 record players.

With its plinth structure and isolation system based on the SG-1, Record Player MG-1 is designed to be maintenance and setup-free.

And the MG-1 with matching SG-1 tonearm and Tempo Motor Drive is a delight to use. Even in its standard form, with with RedLine tonearm cable and motor drive cable, the MG-1 provides a performance that is only bettered by the SG-1. However, the upgradability that is built into this class-leading record player elevates its performance, step by step, closer to the SG-1. Upgrade the tonearm and motor drive cables from D-Fi to Pulse-B, to Pulse-R and all the way to Pulse-HB, to realise the true potential of the MG-1. Every step will provide an unparalleled musical experience and enjoyment that is only achievable from a Vertere record player.

Stylish and beautifully crafted with attention to the finest details, this record player is a must-have, and one that lovers of music on vinyl will cherish.
