Vertere Techno Mat Released

Vertere today has announced its latest accessory for your record player - the Techno Mat.

Vertere's Techno Mat (£130) promises to ease the mind of audiophiles who are concerned about the safety of their records when sitting them directly on a platter. Vertere says that the Techno Mat will also improve the record player's performance.

The Techno mat has a randomly fibrous top layer bonded onto a Cork/Polymer compound layer. We are told that the top layer provides the record with an almost air cushion-like support. Vertere importantly states that this air cushion keeps the inherent properties and characteristics of the vinyl record itself unchanged. Meanwhile, the lower layer provides the required interface and connection to the platter in an inert manner. The upshot is that the mat creates a support for your vinyl that is as neutral as possible.

There are two models of Vertere Techno Mat to choose from, one has been designed specifically for the Vertere MG-1, SG-1 and RG-1 record players and sports a 4.5mm spindle hole. Whereas, the other has a 7.0mm diameter centre hole for use with all other turntables.

Touraj's collaborations include Giles Martin - son of Sir George Martin - who used a Vertere MG-1 record player including SG-1 tonearm and PHONO-1 preamplifier while working on remixes of The Beatles albums to check and approve the acetates and the test pressings.

Miles Showell, the multi-award-winning mastering engineer, uses his own 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. Furthermore, Miles also uses a Vertere SG-1 record player, with an SG-1 tonearm and PHONO-1 preamplifier to listen to and approve acetates and test pressings. Needless to say that the SG-1 is also his choice when enjoying his record collection.

Vertere head honcho,Touraj, told StereoNET:

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.

Finally, we think that the strobe marks on the cork side are a really nice touch, too.

The Vertere Techno Mat is available now for £130 for either version.
