Saturday, Unriddling Continueth

So the record player thing is turning into a bit of a saga. Whoops. Nothing is ever easy because snobs about audio stuff had to make things difficult.

The new power cord works, yay, but the speakers that should have been plug-and-play are incapable of anything more than a squeak. On one speaker instead of two.

I really hope that we're not down an entire hellfuck expensive record player
