Speaking to you as if you are 12 years old, RCA explain how a stereo signal is cut into vinyl and reproduced...

(found here).

Quality 1950s stereo there. I don't think I'd let my records anywhere near it!

Cheers,

That's cool, I always wanted to ride along the groove of a record (although that specific groove seems to contain nothing but some high-frequency noise)

Well of course RCA is the first to offer stereo Victrolas. If "Victrola" is a trademark, anyone else has to use a different name.

Yes, it wasn't very convincing, was it?

All demonstrations with ceramic cartridges too - enough to make me shudder, never mind a hardcore audiophile!

Whoever posted it to YouTube probably got it from the Prelinger Archives... lots of viewing and download options there, and lots more great films, like The Sound and the Story.
