A record player, or a turntable in other words, is a device for reproducing sound that has been recorded as a spiral on a vinyl record. In using a record player, a record is placed on the player's motor-driven turntable, which rotates the record at a constant speed. A tone arm is placed on the record and as the tone arm touches the groove of the record with its stylus, or needle, the variations in its groove cause the stylus to vibrate. These mechanical vibrations are converted into corresponding electrical signals, which are then increased in size by an amplifier. After leaving the amplifier, they are passed to a loudspeaker that converts them into sound. This is how an amazing sound from vinyl records in created.
