Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

RE: What cartridge to complete system; AR-XA, AR Integrated, AR3's

The Shure is a good choice for the AR-XA -- I use a V15Vx/Jico SAS on mine -- and consistent with your goal of a classic AR system.

In my experience -- I was active in the stereo business in the day -- the classic AR system would have Dyna tube electronics. It was almost a cult thing. An ST70 will not cut it with AR3s. They need the big mono amps.

My recollection is that these systems were not very interesting musically.
