Reference Tonearm Gen III


Unveiled in 2014, the Vertere Reference Tonearm has consistently set the gold standard, acting as the blueprint for all subsequent Vertere reference offerings. Each element of this tonearm has been purposefully created to transcend the limitations of existing designs. Every nuance is thoughtfully engineered, culminating in collective excellence. This enhancement results in a level of performance defined by live music’s resolution, clarity, dynamics, timing, and raw potency. The third-generation iteration introduces added flexibility, user-friendliness for fine-tuning, and naturally, elevated performance benchmarks.
