That question is a bit like when I first heard someone call me, "sir". :lol: These things were ubiquitous, man! Everyone know how to use it!


OK.


First off, you're missing the key ingredient, a longer spindle. Maybe there's one hidden on the bottom of the unit? The idea is you pull out that little stubby spindle and put in a longer one that's got a special latching mechanism built into it. It stands about, oh, 2-3 inches tall.

You take your records, about 4 or so, and stack them all on top of the spindle at once. The latch on the spindle keeps them all hovering above the turntable, and that arm thingie swings over the top and drops down over the stack to keep them from wobbling around while they're balanced up there.

Then you pull the lever on the right all the way to "auto" and let go.

The turntable starts spinning, and the latch in the spindle lets ONE record drop to the turntable. The tone arm then swings over to the edge of the record and drops. VOILA! Music ensues!

At the end of the record, the machine detects when the lead-out groove pulls the tone arm over towards the spindle. At that point, it lifts the tone arm and swings it back out of the way. Then the spindle lets one more record drop, and it starts all over again. it stops when there's no more records on the spindle to drop.

Ta-da. That's how automatic turntables work.

I can't believe I had to explain this. :lol: I'm old. :cry:

omg does it say 33 45 78? Can it has HiFi? Cause that's important. Wow, I forgot that some of them had interchangeable spindles. That one installed is teh super cool 70s single serve Flip-It-Yerself Rock Opera Attachment™. No doubt it shipped new with the longer Stax-O-Wax Chang-O-Matic spindle, which was supposed to be stored in the handy dandy storage slot seen directly behind the platter.

Some of them even had a 45 size spindle attatchment that fit over the album changer spindle.

protip: 1st, play some old album you don't care about, and listen carefully for wow & flutter (solo piano music is best; go to goodwill for $1 Ferrante & Teicher or some such). If it's there, decide how much you want fool around with an entry level player, because much better ones can be had for pretty cheap. If the drive is good enough, B&H is a pretty good place for cartridges & needles.

Good pix, btw. :thu:

Ghod, I can still hear the sound of perfectly good vinyl being abraded away and dirt being ground in every time one of those mechanical monsters dropped an album onto the already spinning one below:

"SSSCKFFFFFFfffffffff..."

Streetbeater is a great tune, but I don't expect that I will ever listen to that version again. I don't even know what she was thinking. It is however better than that toes am and daddy tune :freak:

So why does mine have that extra black arm on it then? what's that for? Thanks for the pic kudos :thu:

I need to get a preamp for it. it sounds pretty good through my 50watt, but it could be louder. It was actually reconditioned, so the cartridge and some other stuff is new. I'm not picky about things like that though and I'm actually ok with a bit of honest wear. I think it's character and better (or at least more endearing) than the new, perfect from the box and it has no moving parts stuff we get today.

yea it's got all three speeds. what was the 78 for?

feh. I was born in 74. I had a record player back then and I was playing sesame street albums on it when i was like 3-4 :lol:

what I meant was, but didn't say, is that I have 33 records. what (or when) was the 78 standard primarily used? Considering the image you posted, I can say that it's most likely for older records, say pre 1960s?

I'm just not up on the technical evolution of vinyl.

Yeah the first records were 78RPM. At the end of the vinyl era, everything was 33 1/3.

You know what I meant.

Cr, and the few who SWEAR to the superiority of teh audio. It's nostalgic for me for sure, and when I get in a jazz or classical mood, nothing beats vinyl for me. But when I want "superior" (whatever that means to "those" people) audio, I certainly do not head straight for the record player...

Oh yeah I should have included myself. So it's old people, hipsters and sound snobs :lol:

I'm becoming less and less of a sound snob though, if I may say so. I even use computers for music now :lol: and I admit that the stuff I did on analog wasn't that great anyway.
