A playback machine for vinyl phonograph records, which were a major music distribution medium throughout the 20th century. The turntable contains a rotating platter for the disc and an arm that holds a cartridge and needle (stylus). The needle is a diamond chip attached to a metal cantilever that causes a coil or magnet to move inside the cartridge as it bounces along the sound wave undulations "carved" in the V-shaped grooves of the vinyl.Records Degrade With UsageA major problem with vinyl records is the wearing of the inner surfaces of the groove by the needle. Over the years, an enormous amount of mechanical engineering went into the design of turntables and needles that would accurately track the grooves with as little pressure as possible.Still MadeAnalog turntables are still being made and used by people who have extensive vinyl record collections as well as by disc jockeys (DJs). See vinyl record, record player, LP, Laser Turntable, USB turntable and DJ turntable.
