Record Player And CD Black Friday-What is The Construction of A Record Player?

November 14, 2022

The record player is actually a phonograph that everyone can often see on TV. Today’s record players are no longer just a simple music player. They are stylish and functional, and are more like home decorations. So, what is the construction of a record player? Just come with me to find out.


The function of the turntable is to place the record. It can drive the record to rotate, so that the needle of the record player can read the analog signal on the record, so as to produce wonderful music.

Big speakers

The loudspeaker can be said to be the symbol of the retro record player, especially in some old Shanghai film and television dramas, it is often seen. Because the volume read by the stylus is very low, a large speaker is installed to amplify the sound. But now the record players are specialized audio, do not need this part.


The cartridge is one of the most important parts in the record player. It converts the analog signal of the stylus into vibration, then converts it into sound according to the vibration frequency, and finally plays it through the loudspeaker.

Tone arm

The tonearm is the second half of the cartridge, which is mainly used to automatically stop playing after the record is sung. Most phonographs now have such a function.

Rega Planar 6/Ania

Hand assembled RB303 tonearm with stainless steel balance weight. 24v low noise motor. Dual layer float glass platter. Phenolic (lower) and metal faced (upper) bracing. Precision main bearing & aluminium adaptor. TT-PSU power supply electronic speed change.

You get a custom machined drive pulley, new and improved RB330 tonearm, separate power supply and single piece aluminum sub-disk. There’s also electronic shifting and a smoked dust cover to match the double-glass platters. The design is sturdy yet lightweight, as Rega believes that too much mass can adversely affect the sound.

If you’re serious about sound and looking for one of the most refined turntables in its class, the Rega Planar 6/Ania might be the best turntable for you.
