Adding stereo VU meters to a turntable

My fiancĂ©e got me a great gift for my last birthday: a turntable. Being a classic trance lover, I’ve since been collecting a bunch of records. The thing has really been a source of joy thus far.

About a month ago I started itching to do a little electronics project again as it had been a while. Long story short, I figured it’d be neat to open up this relatively simple device and add a nice aesthetic feature to it: VU meters.

Since this is a rather involved hack, (as opposed to my line-in addition to a boombox), it gave me a good reason to finally check out Southampton’s maker/hackerspace, SoMakeIt.
