Simply Better

In reality vinyl never really went away but its recent resurgence is music to our ears.

Our heritage in turntables is unparalleled. From the ‘plug and play’ Rega Planar 1 to the iconic Linn Sondek LP12, we have the knowledge, experience and skills to guide you through the different philosophies to deliver your ultimate vinyl replay system.

We stock new as well as used and refurbished turntable parts for upgrading decks, or to build you a previously owned Sondek fully maintained and refurbished. We have plinths, sub-chassis, motors, power supplies, tonearms, bearings, top-plates and cartridges.

Our shop at Chester has a fully equipped workshop to cater for most makes of decks including Rega, Well Tempered, Michell, Thorens, Linn etc.

Record Cleaning
Cleanliness is fundamental to achieving optimum audio quality from vinyl; a clean record will not only sound better, but last longer. But it’s not just about improving sound - repeated playing of soiled records can cause permanent damage to the vinyl and accelerates stylus wear.

Dust and debris accumulated over time on a record’s surface cause irreparable damage to the vinyl during play.

That’s why we offer both a comprehensive record cleaning service and the best record cleaning machine we've found yet - Degritter MARK II. Perfect for those with a large (and valuable) vinyl collection.


The pivotal backbone of any deck, the tonearm is where much of a turntable’s complex technology resides. It has to be flexible enough to glide gracefully across the record, but rigid to ensure energy picked up from the stylus and cartridge is accurately transmitted and crucially without vibration re-entering the system.

And of course, properly set up with the correct tracking weight, height and balance adjustment, anti-skate settings all matched to the next critical component – your cartridge.


The moving heart of your vinyl system, a cartridges job is to collect maximum information from each groove of a record and transfer it from vibrations to electrical energy and into the tonearm. We will explain the complexities and differences between the two major types – moving coil and moving magnet – and how they interact with different tonearms to help you choose your optimum combination.

Adventures specialises in cartridges from Linn, Dynavector, Audio Technica and Ortofon. We also have some great products from Lyra, Nagaoka and others.

Phono stages

Once your turntable has retrieved its music from vinyl, you’ll need something to give it a bit of oomph!

Compared to that of a digital streamer or CD player, the audio output from a turntable is very quiet so it requires specialist processing – in the form of a phono preamplifier – before being passed to the power amplification stage.
