I'm entirely positive and someone else could probably explain it much better than I, but it has to do with the physical properties of the record, and the stylus going over the grooves...it makes a sound, it's just not amplified. The speakers are what create the volume and amplification effect.

VP - there was an Oprah episode recently where Nate remodeled the family's kitchen. This was an original 60s/70s style, and even had a record player built into the wall. It pulled down - never saw one like it, LOL!

I actually did know that, and explained it to a friend, but it still blows my mind that it does that.

My family has one that's very similar to that.

No I didn't. I'll go look in a few.

I remember a year or two ago we talked about you getting a turntable/record player. You still haven't??

Omg, I've never heard of that! They must have been all high-tech, back in the day.

Yeah, I remember telling you about mine. I went without one for years, but then Sarah was digging through my albums and wanted to listen to a bunch of them, so I got her one that Christmas, I think it was around $120 at Radio Shack. I actually had trouble finding one at all.

Do you have a stereo, or home theatre system? Because for a music lover like you, you probably won't be happy with the sound quality of that one. I'd advise you to do what I did, buy a turntable. i have mine hooked up to my home theatre.

I don't mind the built in speakers but I also don't know any better.
