AR2xa Speakers

Recommended Posts

The AR-2 series has a complicated history.

 

If they are labelled AR-2xa, I would say that they were originally AR-2x that were upgraded to ax standards via the factory kit.

 

For the whole scoop, see here:

It seems to me the AR2xa was a factory upgrade made popular by a rave review by Consumer Reports.  In those days, CR was able to dramatically increase sales of a particular product by giving it a top rating in their group reviews.  They had the same impact in their ratings of cars, and I heard their circulation jumped mightily in issues that had their highly prized auto and audio equipment reviews and recommendations.  The AR2ax was such a beneficiary.  So was the Shure V-15 series of cartridges.
