    Portable Audio, 1960s-Style

    Issue 149

    A classic AR-XA turntable, circa 1960s. As Ivan Berger noted in his article in Issue 105, hundreds of thousands were sold. Photo by Howard Kneller, from The Audio Classics Collection.

     

    Elegant simplicity: the AR-XA pivot and counterweight.

     

    This example even has the original box.

     

    That’s the signpost up ahead! Your next stop: the audio Twilight Zone, by way of this early 1970s Wega Studio 3300 music system.

     

    From the people who brought you the Etch a Sketch: a circa 1967 Mighty Tiny record player, made by Ohio Art.
