I first saw one of these on an auction type TV show.

So I Googled it.

Here's what I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNowLvmIPoo

If I said it is a Volkswagen record player, you'd still not guess what it is!

There have been some recordings that I would like to submit to that torture.

I have mentioned here before that the thing that analogue recording techniques -- both sound and vision -- will always have on their digital replacements is that they are essentially future proof because, as long as the recording medium has been well preserved, you can always knock up a replay device with a few easily obtainable parts.

For instance, take this vinyl player: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26tqSRh7gGk
