Turn Your Old MP3s Into Records

One of my readers, KL from NYC posted this video with a comment on an earlier post of mine. The video is fascinating. In it, audio geek David Nelson demonstrates a home-made recording lathe comprised of unrelated component parts and an old turntable. He made multiple improvements over time which just escalate into a very usable lathe that made very listenable recordings. The process is very impressive and looks like a dangerously appealing hobby for lesser audio geeks like myself.
