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

My Uncle - Chuck McShane - was with AR back in the Cambridge Mass./Edgar Villchur days and was part of the R&D group with Roy Allison that developed the AR3a. Chuck always said that for the flattest response turn the tweeter pot wide open but don't turn up the mids pot. Unfortunately and sadly Chuck isn't here to ask more questions about the 3a - such as would he recommend the same settings on an AR-3.

And be SURE you had an amp that had plenty of power - repeated clipping destroyed many a tweeter.

Just a heads up...
