AR XA - I'm in love

Just wanted to share...

I recently pulled an AR XA out of storage and got it going - it was a thrift find from a few years back, and it needed some TLC. I had put it aside, as I was already using a Philips 312 (with a Shure M97xe), and I was content with it for a looooong time. I was curious about the XA, so I decided to give it a go.

So, I did some basic maintenance, got a belt, new cart (AT95E), and I commandeered a "new" armrest from another thrift table.

All I can say is... WOW. I wish I knew what I had been missing. The Philips was a good table, but this one is definitely a step up, even though it is not the most user-friendly table out there - and sure isn't pretty.
