Vertere Phono-1 Phono Amplifier. Yours for £1,000, this box handles Moving Magnet and Moving Coil with loading, gain and capacitance options
The overall circuit for the Vertere Phono-1 is Op-Amp based but as the company said, “There are Op-amps and there are Op-amps. Some are amazingly good and some less good but even more important is the implementation. Circuit design is an area in which Vertere are very careful not to disclose much information. Proper implementation of any circuit is as crucial as the actual design itself.”

really do enjoy your you tube videos and reviews. I found the video on vinyl cleaning and surfactants especially informative. Your latest review of the Vertere phono stage was very interesting. I have recently purchased a new Avid Pulsus phono stage which also has all the settings underneath the main chassis of the phono stage. is there an easier way to achieve the correct settings rather than having to dismantle the equipment on my rack, listen to them then reinstall the stage on the rack several times? It takes ages to do once (due to all the isolation nonsense I have) so several comparisons is a complete faff.!
Thanks for your help and advice and already looking forward to your next review. Keep up the excellent work please.

Many thanks, John – you can transfer the settings from your cartridge spec sheet (they should all be there for, if not, on the company website) which will provide a generally good array of settings.
