RE: AR XA - I'm in love

For about 25 years I have been listening to an XA I picked up at an estate sale for $5. It was cosmetically perfect and complete with dust cover and manuals. It had an arm wiring problem that led to an early and careful retirement.

Over the years I have replaced cartridges (currently a Shure V15Vx/Jico SAS) and experimented with platter mats. I alternate two carefully maintained original belts.

At times I read a turntable review and think, well, maybe for about $1500 - $2000...

Then I play a record, enjoy the music and leave the money in the bank.
