It's pretty readable in real life, I think the video makes it look faster.As to slowing the turntable down, I think that should be fairly easy to do by lowering the voltage. But to do that, you'd have to open it up and possibly tinker with mains-level voltage wiring. Not to be recommended for the unexperienced.I actually have no idea how turntables work internally, and whether they use DC or AC motors, but I'm now motivated to investigate :)
