A tech-savvy Russian turntable enthusiast has modified a Technics SL-1200 to play digital tracks as well as vinyl.

YouTube user Андрей Анацко’s unique mod means the turntable can play music from a digital library of tracks without the aid of a computer, instead reading data from an on board SD card.

As he explains in his demo video, the turntable works as usual unless you switch it on with the speed buttons held down, which shifts it into DVS mode.

The original videos are in Russian, but DJ Tech Tools has put together a clip with English explanations of how the turntable works. You can watch it below.
