Vertere Acoustics fits new Magneto cartridge to award-winning DG-1 Record Player
Press release from Vertere Acoustics:
Touraj Moghaddam confirmed on 4th April 2020 that all Vertere DG-1 Dynamic Groove record players shipped with cartridges during the last month (March) were supplied with the new Magneto Dual-MM cartridge, fitted and aligned.
The Magneto is now the standard fit for the DG-1 package, should buyers choose to have their player supplied with a factory-fitted cartridge.
Magneto is closely related to the Audio Technica VM520EB cartridge (originally fitted to the DG-1) and is stylus-compatible with the AT VM5x range. This allows owners to upgrade to an improved stylus profile if needed, when the time comes to renew.
Magneto was chosen as the ideal starter cartridge: it is tolerant of records in less than perfect condition which may be the case with owners returning to vinyl after many years absence. Magneto however is superbly musical and delivers all the qualities one would expect of a Vertere product. Magneto is quiet, dynamic, accurate, and easy to optimise.
Vertere will be publishing a blog and video later in the year discussing the upgrade paths available to DG-1 owners. While the DG-1 is significantly more of a plug-and-play player than Vertere’s more upscale range, Touraj has already been contacted about suggestions for upgrades.
