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

I agree that the AR3s "need" the heft of a Mac 275 or Citation II, but am not sure they deserve them. As you said, they were "nice" speakers, but -- to my ears -- not great ones.

In the day, if you spent that kind of money on a power amp, there were more musical -- and more expensive! -- speakers. Bozak Symphonies and KLH Nines come to mind. The big Dynas were more in the AR price class, and good value.
