Acoustic Research ARXA Vintage Turntable, "Marc Morin Modified," Ultra Performance
The Acoustic Research ARXA turntable is one of the most copied turntable designs ever created. Originally introduced in 1961, the ARXA was known for its incredibly simple and innovative 3-point floating suspension, lightweight aluminum tube tonearm, heavy-duty 2-piece aluminum platter, and ultra-quiet motor.
This unit is a single motor version which has been completely rebuilt and updated to "Marc Morin" standards. Marc Morin was an audiophile enthusiast who became known for developing a list of modifications that would extract the absolute best performance from this turntable. Modifications include recapped motor controller, new suspension components, new tinsel leads, new RCA-type output terminals, new IEC-type power cord terminal, new plexiglass dust cover, and refinished walnut veneer plinth. Also, a brand new Music Hall Spirit cartridge has been loaded for easy "plug and play" operation.
It's quiet, accurate, and beautiful.
