Though not entirely LEGO, this faithful reproduction from Canadian maker Ryan Alexander does play actual vinyl (although heavily garbled) and performs well enough to show the proof of concept. If you’ve made your own turntable, drop a link in the comments. I’m curious to see what some of you have come up with as decent turntables are a rarity these days. [via technabob]
