"The SG1.2 came about from work we've been doing in design and materials research over the last two years, and the turntable takes what listeners and reviewers worldwide have called an already exceptional record-playback platform to an even higher level," said Allen Perkins, president of Spiral Groove.

The increased weight of the new platter adds more impact to the bass and a bit more focus and depth to imaging. The new platter materials yield a very "fast" sound with an even lower noise floor than previously from a design that was already outstanding in this regard.

Allen, who introduced himself as a "tinkerer," noted that the Spiral Groove SG-1.1 has the same fundamental design as the RPM 'table he designed 20 years ago. But one crucial difference, not visible from the outside, is the SG's far more stable bearing. "If you execute this design at a lower price point, you can't achieve the same quality of playback," he explained.
