RECORD PLAYER TO MUSIC MACHINE

Post by MANCAVEDWELLER »

Something I did during lockdown. Old Champion 'valve' record player was gathering dust in my garage, not working nor repairable by me and as it is a cheap 1960's brand even if fixed the sound would have been poor if I was able to fix it, which is not in my gift

So I thought I would use the case to put an alternative form of music inside, using a second hand car audio unit, speakers from a dead mini hifi, and a 12v power supply on the internet, here is the end result

So.... here is the empty box and me sizing up the empty box with the kit I intended to use

Using scrap ply wood and my limited wood working tools.

I built a platform to conceal the workings and fit the audio unit into

Nice job, always fancied doing something similar but never had the time.
If the lessons of history teach us anything it is that nobody learns the lessons that history teaches us.
