project record player melbourne hi fiWhen you play a record the styli (needle) on the end of the turntable's tonearm sits in the grooves of the record and picks up the vibrations created by little hills and valleys in the groove on the left and right channels of these grooves.

Those vibrations are then transformed into a tiny signal through the cartridge and travels through the tonearm and out through the cables.

Better turntables pick up more information through a better designed cartridge and tonearm and provide better isolation from all possible sources of interference. Interference can be physical, such as motor vibration - or electrical.
