How Do Vinyl records Work

To understand how vinyl records work is to understand a very complex analogue process that was refined to provide us with a very special experience of enjoying music in our homes as it was intended by the recording artists.And that's kinda special.....after all the emotional experience of enjoying music is something that can enhance our lives in a special way.

To talk of the basics....the stylus sits in the record groove....rotating at 33 and a third for an LP....and as the record rotates it allows the stylus to ride the grooves and reproduce the music within.....in a natural way via a mechanical to electrical transfer .....and the magic of analogue happens.....the signal is transferred to the amplifier and reproduced by the speakers.This is a simplication....obliviously the quality of the reproducing equipment makes a huge difference.....

Whatever the case,from the cartridge and stylus combination to the isolation of the turntable from noise and vibration within the design it is important to find a great piece of vinyl playing kit that helps your discover the nirvana of playing records.It truly is a great space.

For the last couple of years Melbourne’s Two People, Phoebe Cockburn and Joey Clough, formerly of Snakadaktal, have been teasing us with brooding electronic-pop. The artwork for the last two releases – ‘Something To Talk About’ and ‘I’m Tied, To You’ – suggest a “proper” project is coming, and if their latest release is anything to go by it’ll be something serious.
