How Vinyl Records Work?

For the vinyl record to work, it needs the record player, this is because it has a transducer that usually converts mechanical energy of the recorded vibration, which has been imprinted to the vinyl records, into soundwaves. This soundwaves are usually amplified and have the ability to be broadcasted to the speaker. The transducer is made up of stylus, cartridge, amplifier and speaker.

Its stylus, has many may call it a recorder needle, is usually made from hard metal and is conical shaped. In a vinyl record there is usually a groove at the center which is fitted to the stylus. On the groove, is where the sounds are imprinted. The stylus then sends the vibration to the cartridge. It should be noted the right channel is usually recorded on the right wall and the left channel is recorded on the left wall of the groove. The depth and width of the groove affects the vinyl record capacity.
