Vertere DG-1

(from $3,995 USD)

The Vertere DG-1 (Dynamic Groove) is a plug-and-play turntable system that costs just $3,995 USD complete with arm, DFi cable, and cartridge. It’s a rare turntable that can be up and running in a few minutes after the box is opened. Plug-n-play turntables are common at the low-end, but at this level it might be one of the best turntables to fit this description. The complexity of the design and build in the DG-1 is second to none in this price category and, most importantly, shares technology with everything Vertere has done upstream.
