DG-1S Dynamic Groove
Decades of experience have been poured into the DG-1S to create a turntable that’s on the leading edge of high-end audio while positioning itself as one of the most accessible premium record players around.
So what’s new? Building on the sonic performance of the DG-1, we’ve boosted the sound quality without sacrificing the musicality that the DG-1 was revered for. Improvements include higher resolution replay, greater dynamic contrasts, and improved stereo separation with greater precision.
New 5-ply tonearm beam
New 5-ply Groove Runner S Top and Lower beams possess much higher acoustic linearity than their predecessor.
Top and Lower beams are bonded and riveted to ensure optimum rigidity combined with linear resistive damping.
Couple the above with the inherent critical damping of the beam construction and we have an ideal platform to support the cartridge.
Improved tonearm bearings
Groove Runner S Kevlar thread bearing is now adjustable for tension and azimuth. With the new Azimuth Adjustment Counterweight Screw, finer azimuth setting is made easier and more accurately to enhance cartridge performance.
New higher tolerance super polished main bearing spindle
DG-1S utilises a higher tolerance matched main bearing with super polished bearing spindle for ultra-smooth, noise-free running. The new bearing ensures even quieter background further enhancing dynamic range and resolution.
New Motor Drive software
The new motor drive software facilitates a three step factory adjustment of the motor torque and noise setting with a final minimum noise adjustment. The new software allows an initial setting of the sine wave voltage and fixes it to establish the reference. A separate, independent cosine wave voltage setting with phase angle adjustment ensures lowest noise and vibration from the drive motor.
