Many great choices out there, and if you ask, just as many recommendations. That said, I liked it a lot with my NOS Pickering XV15 1200E/D1200, but it really sounded nice with my Grado Platinum wood body. Never tried my Grado Blue/8MZ combo but I'm sure it would have been better than the AT95E. I'm not knocking the AT cart, I have one, it punches way above its asking price, but the extra Benjamins for the Grados better get you something extra.
Do you have any hum issues with the Grado and the XA?
The AR now belongs to my son. The Grado wood body was taken out by the maidinator before I gave the table to my son, but no I never had an issue with any hum.
I did eventually change the arm, not a botique arm but definitely an improvement over the stock arm, and now with the ability to set VTA. The change was made still allowing the original arm to be reinstalled if desired.
