How do Record Players Work?

A record player consists of three main components. The turntable, the tonearm, and the stylus, or needle. Record players work by turning the turntable, with a record on it, then the tonearm lowers onto the record, and the stylus is connected to the end of the tonearm. The stylus sits in the groove of the record, and, as the turntable spins, the stylus generates an electrical charge, which is then amplified to produce the sound. Look here for more information:
