ADVENTURES RETAIL UPDATE

21 March 2020

Regrettably, we have taken the decision to close the shop premises temporarily from close of play today, Saturday 21st March, in the interests of the health and safety all.

We are however still open for business, just not from the physical shop. We are still happily answering calls and emails, social media channels remain open, we are continuing to take orders for home delivery as well as maintaining remote support.

Tel: 01244 345 576
Email: sales@adventuresinhifi.com / hello@adventuresinhifi.com

Private demonstrations in the shop are still running by appointment, with additional hygiene and distancing measures in place. LP12 servicing and Karousel fitting will also continue, behind closed doors.

Orders can still be placed via phone call or email with home delivery now available for the majority of our products.

We apologise for any inconvenience but for everyone’s longer term benefit we feel strongly that this is the correct decision. Think of it as a musical interlude.

Thank you for your understanding, stay safe and turn the music up.
From all at Adventures In Hi-Fi.

Linn LP12 Personlisation

Any colour, any inscription. Create your own bespoke Sondek LP12

19 March 2020

To coincide with new Karousel bearing for LP12, Linn has introduced two ‘personalisation’ options allowing you to create your very own bespoke Sondek LP12 turntable.

Firstly, match any colour. Whether it’s the colour of your favourite shirt, a shade from your best-loved album, or something to match your other half’s interior design tastes, Linn will match any colour for the perfect personalised plinth finish.

Make your mark. To complete your ultimate deck, add your own individual monogram, beautifully laser-etched with up to four letters of your choice for a truly unique turntable.

Linn Karousel

Linn Karousel Bearing for LP12

5 March 2020

Smoother rotation, greater stability, better sound: Linn Karousel new precision-engineered single-point bearing is your essential LP12 upgrade.

Karousel is only the third evolution of LP12 bearing technology, made possible by technological developments in material science, machining capabilities and mechanical engineering expertise gained from almost half a century of designing and manufacturing this iconic turntable. That vital union between the platter, spindle, bearing and sub-chassis is now the strongest Linn has ever achieved.

Smoother rotation
A new diamond-like carbon coating inside the bearing reduces friction between the tip of the spindle and the base of the bearing itself. This reduces the ‘noise floor’ of the turntable, so improves musical reproduction.

Greater stability
The substantial lock-nut fastening on the improved stainless steel housing increases rigidity at the critical point where bearing and sub-chassis come together. Enhancements to the base of the bearing include a stronger housing for the thrust pad, combined with a smaller, stiffer coated form, to improve the critical area that supports the platter rotation and mass, meaning your vinyl reproduction is more accurate and detailed than ever before.

Increased durability
With Karousel, the reduction in friction means that not only will this critical component have a greater lifespan, but your LP12 will continue to give you incredibly accurate listening pleasure for longer than ever before.

We haven’t been this excited about an LP12 upgrade in a looong time. Karousel starts shipping on 23rd March. It is retro-fittable to every LP12, will cost £750 and includes the bearing, inner platter, complete suspension kit (springs, grommets, washers and locknuts) and earthing wire.

Details of our launch event will follow soon. In the meantime, here’s another reason to get excited: Karousel will be free of charge when ordering any other Linn product(s) of £3000 or more. Win win win!

 

 

NB Karousel is not compatible with Nirvana, Valhalla or 3rd party power supplies for electrical safety reasons.

Dirty vinyl

Why you should always clean records

7 January 2019

The condition of vinyl records has a direct impact on their sound quality. It’s common knowledge that records need the occasional clean; used record purchases especially should always be cleaned before they go anywhere near your turntable and stylus. Dirty records not only sound bad, but they also exacerbate stylus wear and contaminate your turntable – spreading the muck across your precious vinyl collection.What isn’t always common knowledge however, is that brand new vinyl needs cleaning too – ideally before it hits your turntable. The reason for this is two-fold: static charge & factory grime.
