Why can I hear echo when playing vinyl?

FAQs of Record Players - Jan 2024

If you hear a second sound while playing vinyl records, there's no need to be alarmed; this is a normal occurrence. This phenomenon is a result of the operational principle of vinyl records. The process involves the stylus (needle) tracking the grooves on the record, generating a faint audio signal through mechanical means, which is then amplified by an amplifier and played through the speakers. Therefore, if you are in close proximity to the turntable and the speaker volume is not too high, you can hear this original sound.

To alleviate this concern, you can try adjusting the volume to a moderate level and avoid being too close to the turntable. This should help reduce the audible interference from the mechanical aspects of the playback process.

Rest assured, what you're experiencing is part of the unique charm and history of vinyl record playback. If you have any more questions or need further assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out.
