** This Ad is Marked as SOLD by seller and cannot be responded to. **

I'm offering for your consideration this revamped and upgraded AR XA Turntable. I have gone over this venerable piece of audiophile history with a fine-toothed comb, referencing Vinyl Nirvana's extensive online information to create a truly-special turntable for the lucky buyer.

What sets this AR XA apart from others now on the market are six things:
(1) the solid walnut plinth is completely re-done, and is beautiful,
(2) the dustcover is hinged, and it also has a felt-covered stop for it in back, for ease of use,
(3) the cardboard bottom was replaced with a walnut-stained slide-in wood bottom panel, with three holes drilled in for easily access to the turntable's famous 3-point suspension system. Also, four adjustable brass cone "feet" are built into this bottom base panel to make leveling a snap,
(4) upgrade vinylnirvana.com heavy-duty suspension springs are installed,
(5) the tonearm is re-wired with new Cardas high-quality shielded wire, and
(6) the tonearm's removeable headshell is aluminum, an upgrade over the overly-expensive, hard-to-find, fragile plastic AR headshells.

The best part: this turntable --considered by many to be the biggest advancement in turntable history, and the blueprint for many of today's audiophile turntables-- looks and sounds great! If your audio gear is moving magnet cartridge-compatible, this AR XA is ready to give you years of high-quality vinyl listening pleasure.

My asking price is $350.00, plus Fed-Ex shipping charges to your zip code. Because I'd like to deliver and help set this equipment up properly, I'd prefer to sell this AR XA locally.

Thanks for looking!



Includes:

Included are the original box and packaging, the AR XA set-up manual, the 45 RPM record adapter, most of the original AR cartridge downforce scale kit, a bottle of the original AR bearing oil, a Shure M-91 ED moving magnet cartridge with an extra brand-new spare stylus, extra screws for the dust cover hinges, and --last, but not least-- a small bubble level gauge.
