About Vinyl Records
When you put the record on a record player or turn table, the needle on the stylus retraces the groove that had been carved out on the wax record. As the stylus retraces the groove, it recreates the sounds by transferring the vibrations to a diaphragm in a speaker. This will then pick up the sound and amplify it to a reasonable level.
Sound vibrations are transmitted to a needle or stylus. This in turn cuts a groove into a wax record as it revolves. Depending on the music being recorded, the stylus will carve out various depths and widths. Each record has their own unique groove.
