Neotech Vinyl’s long-standing, innovative legacy continues to grow and thrive because we are devoted to finding and creating the perfect sound through vinyl. We know that our customers - and their customers - deeply share in this endeavor. We also know that listening to vinyl records demands our attention because – unlike the craziness of our multi-tasking digital world – it requires listeners to stop, step back, and experience the music fully and intensely. Great music experiences transport us to another time or place and capturing the purest sound quality in the best way to epitomize this transcendence. This is our manifesto. Our endless pursuit of sound perfection.
Masters of the Groove
High Yield & Faster Cycle Formulas
Preserving a Legacy
— Robert Sliger, Impex
Impex is proud to use Neotech vinyl formulations in our 1STEP records. We choose the formulation that best suits the tonal and playback needs of each recording, including the startlingly revealing VR900BK1.
Neotech developed the VR900BK1 by rethinking formulation as well as processing. They took a chemistry-intensive approach to raw material selection in order to eliminate the characteristics of these materials that increase noise in record grooves. They have also developed new chemistry that allows the compound to more accurately receive and preserve the grooves. They coupled this innovative approach to raw material selection along with a new processing technique that provides ultra-quiet grooves as well as incredibly precise groove definition.Not every classic recording we issue is well-served by VR900BK-1, so we create each 1STEP test ref with different formulations and use the one that best represents the character, quality, and performance on the recording.

Jennifer’s Warnes' long-time mastering engineer, Bernie Grundman, artfully brings out all the detail, presence and harmonic body of this amazingly lifelike recording. Impex’s luxe 180-gram vinyl presentation, formulated by Neotech Vinyl, features an impeccably quiet pressing by RTI.
