Vertere, the high-end British record player designer and manufacturer, has launched the Vertere Iso-Paw Isolation Footer designed and made to enhance the performance of the DG-1 record player and/or Phono-1 cartridge amplifier.

The Vertere Iso-Paw Isolation Footer incorporates an acetal support with felt underside for coupling with the support surface and Sorbothane dome top for decoupling and supporting the DG-1 record player or the Phono-1 cartridge preamplifier.

Vertere DG-1 Record Player

The 3-Pack version is suitable for the DG-1 record player. Vertere told us: “Iso-paw enhances the performance of your DG-1 and provides increased immunity from unwanted external vibrations. The Iso-paws are easily installed under each foot and immediately provide better isolation and enhanced bottom end, better-focused imaging and soundstage and quieter background resulting in increased dynamic range”. The 4-Pack version is suitable for the Phono-1 MM/MC phono cartridge preamplifier.

Experimentation by the brand has found these are not only worthwhile for Vertere products. They say that they have found many low – medium mass products benefit especially products like phono stages and DACs.  Vertere suggest a maximum weight per Paw to be 2.5kg

Some Background Information From Vertere’s Touraj Moghaddam

“Our collaboration with music industry engineers has given us invaluable insights into the art of cutting and advanced our record player design in many ways to extract the maximum from vinyl records. For example, with his recent remixes of the Beatles albums, Giles Martin – son of the late Sir George – used a Vertere MG-1 record player including SG-1 tonearm and PHONO-1 preamplifier throughout to check and approve the acetates and the test pressings.

And we’ve worked closely with multi-award-winning mastering engineer Miles Showell: since February 2017 Miles has been using his own extensively customised Neumann VMS 80 lathe, incorporating Vertere cables, to cut normal and half-speed masters for the likes of ABBA, Cream, The Police and The Rolling Stones, and also the 50th-anniversary release of The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beatles (otherwise known as ‘The White Album’) and many more. Miles also uses his SG-1 record player including SG-1 tonearm and PHONO-1 preamplifier to listen to and approve acetates and test pressings as well as to enjoy listening to his record collection.

Working closely with Miles has led to the first releases on our record label. They include a three-track EP and first album by Scottish band Caezar.  Our first album by Dutch singer/songwriter Elles Springs, which was specially tape-transferred and then half-speed mastered and cut by Miles. It’s only by involving ourselves at every stage of the record-making process that we can ensure our products bring you as close as possible to what the artists and engineers wanted.”
