Our experience has played an intrinsic role in the progression of Hi-Fi audio technology over the last two decades.
We employ this expertise and knowledge into every detail of our business, thus ensuring our products are manufactured the way we would expect them to be.
Unique and formidable self centring, self aligning true single point main bearing.
The innovative design of this bearing provided almost silent, frictionless rotation, precisely defining the rotational axis.
Fully isolated, sprung loudspeaker tweeter.
Eliminated mechanically induced movement by the woofer reaching the delicate audio signal reproduced by the tweeter.
This amazing design provided a stereo sound stage and dynamics second to none.
Using only 3 miniature non-magnetic stainless steel spikes, the generator was rigidly fixed to the main body of the phono cartridge.
This eliminated the use of adhesives and provided the optimum mechanical link. Performance of the phono cartridge was enhanced to a new level.
Isolating the delicate laser mechanism from the internal and external disturbances of the CD player seems only natural but never before had any CD player design incorporated such an elaborate isolation system.
The organic feel of the music, transparency and almost analogue like performance of this CD player soon became an icon in high end audio.
This unique counter weight system addressed problems that existed with conventional counter weights.
It was elegant and its solution to one of the most problematic areas of tonearm design was, and still is ingenious.
It was named ‘intelligent’ because it ‘corrected’ tracking force while the arm negotiated warps however slight they may have been.
Unique in design, the ‘Pyramid’ bearing eliminated the necessity for pre-loading the tonearm bearings thus providing minimal friction. It also reduced the bearing noise dramatically ensuring life like dynamics in the music. Cleverly, these bearings become more ‘rigid’ as the level and dynamics in the record groove increased and vice versa.
This unique feature allowed the most subtle recorded detail to come through effortlessly.

Vertere was born out of a deep desire to pursue audio perfection and a belief that innovation will both drive us forward and define who we are.
This innovation may come from simply thinking laterally about the problems and obstacles we encounter or it may come from a more wide-ranging approach to home audio.
Innovation – in this instance combining the weight of experience and understanding with our love of music that pervades everything we do and you have the perfect conditions for stunning advances in audio technology.
Another aspect of our ethos is a belief in simplicity: Perfection as we see it is not when there is nothing more to add but when there is nothing left to take away.
Of course, a quest for perfection in our field can never be attained – for ‘perfect’ audio one must be in the presence of the musicians. At Vertere the ambition is simply to carry on a long tradition of being the closest to perfection that is achievable.
To listen and to hear how a system evolves towards this perfection does not require intensive training or conditioning of the mind. It is simply instinctive. Forgetting the Hi-Fi and listening to the music is the key.
The result from hearing a Vertere component in use within a system instantly raises the bar to such an extent where no other component in its place will ever deliver the same satisfaction again.
