RE: AR XA - I'm in love

The AR XA was my first real turntable after my Magnavox portable record player. I bought the AR XA just after returning from Vietnam in December 1970. It was a very simple machine but it sounded quite nice. Unfortunately, I couldn't mount a different tonearm without significant modification so I upgraded to a Thorens TD-125 in 1971 so I could mount the SME 3009 Series II tonearm that I'd purchased through Pacific Mail Order System while in Vietnam. I suppose I had the AR XA for about 6-months to a year before buying the Thorens TD-125. I was 22-years old.

Good luck with your AR XA.

Best regards,
John Elison
