Universal record gives all your music that vinyl sound

Universal Record

So you’ve bought a turntable with hopes of hearing that warm vinyl sound, but you don’t have a record collection just yet. What to do? If you’re Jesse England, you ‘cheat’ using digital tunes. He recently built the Universal Record, a device that lets any Bluetooth audio source work with a record player by vibrating a vinyl disc. You can leave the needle stationary if you want relatively clean output, but get it moving and you’ll hear crackles and pops — a bit surreal when you’re listening to songs from your phone. This is an artistic commentary on the “kinetic spectacle” of turntables, so you sadly can’t buy a Universal Record of your own. Still, it’s a pretty clever way to bring back that analog feel in a world where MP3s and internet streaming reign supreme.
