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

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

It helps to turn the darn mid and tweeter controls(that often cause problems) all the way up. The center mid position is actually down a few dBs from the woofer. And the tweeter mid position is further down from the mid-range. When AR published frequency curves they showed drivers separately. This was supposedly done to tame the poor high end of the LPs of the time . But it led to the smooth, but dark AR sound. Turning the controls up will help.
