In Reply to: RE: What cartridge to complete system; AR-XA, AR Integrated, AR3's posted by GRH on May 17, 2017 at 18:00:56
It's hard to say which one sounds "better," into the same preamp/amp/speakers (Phono 1 & Phono 2), they both sound really nice and I don't have to only listen to pristine audiophile records to get a lot of great music.
How funny that the Bogen/Lenco was LESS than the AR.
I like how they would add the cartridge of your choice for a penny. Great times those were!
of the cartridge that AR used in their demonstrations or that was suggested for original equipment sales.
Edgar Villchur said in their live-vs-recorded demos, they used an Ampex tape recorder. See link below.
I visited their Grand Central Station demo room once as a teenager - I did not happen to notice what phono cartridge they used. I just remember how much more majestic sounding the AR-3a's were than any of their other speakers. That woofer was a revelation to my young ears.
The 888 is astep up from the one cent offerings. How does it compare with the V15 II?
is plugged into the phono input of a Denon AVR 1010 receiver, with an outboard N.E.W. A-20 amp driving modified PSB Alpha speakers. I have never installed my Jico SAS N97 replacement stylus, and that may help. At least others have mentioned the Jico improvement on this site previously. However, the price of the Jico replacement stylus has doubled since the days when I purchased mine.
