From Mixmag.net: someone in Korea has built a working LEGO turntable and tone arm. Amazing.

This looks really cool. Maybe this is a way to get "kids" into vinyl and become audiophiles?

This is the perfect combination of my passion and my 5 year old son's passion (he recently assembled the 1500 pc Millennium Falcon mostly on his own), while I recently brought the 'table into the living room so records can become his and my 7 year old daughter's passion as well.

They like vinyl, especially some of the cover art and the colored vinyl in my collection.

That's so imaginative! I've seen some amazing things made from Lego's, an automatic rife powered by a rubber band, shoots plastic blocks, and an animated coin bank that puts on a show with each coin. I wonder if he has posted the design somewhere? Or it may be more fun to design your own. But the big question, how does it sound? Need more VTA? Add a block!

Hi Mikey,
I know you've said you don't worry about such things but a pity the LP in the video clip couldn't have been manufactured to the same accuracy as the Lego.It sounded great other than the wow.....

Think about it, this is the ultimate example of Music Hall's design philosophy with their multiple layer approach. If you could put the thinnest laters of sorbothane between each lego layer, it would be like having an MMF turntable with 45 layers. I give you ... The MMF 40!

It's unfortunate that the LP in the video clip couldn't have been produced with the same level of accuracy as the Lego, despite the fact that you've indicated you don't worry about such things skibidi toilet. In spite of the wow, it sounded fantastic.
