AR-ES1 TURNTABLE; “THE AR TURNTABLE” 1984 Picture(s) and Description:

 282222006061366990 AR ES1 TURNTABLE; THE AR TURNTABLE 1984

The AR ES-1 is a manual, three-point suspension turntable modeled after its famous predecessor, the AR-XA. My Shure V15 xMR shown is not included in this auction. It only demonstrates how the cartridge is mounted on this tonearm. The headshell will be included. I will also include the manual if I locate it. AR followers know what upgrades and modifications are possible with this series. If you decide to use the turntable as it was originally designed, the following details will be helpful. The suspension is supple and balanced. No issues whatsoever.As with other AR turntables, rumble is insignificant. The damped cueing control needs an adjustment. When the lever is released, the arm hesitates and then descends slowly.To my ears, no audible wow or flutter is evident. This was one of the primary engineering strengths of the AR line.Light marks are present on the top of the acrylic dustcover.What looks like a small finishing nail indentation is evident on the left side of the base (see photograph). It is a minor detail – perhaps overlooked during assembly. Competent wood finishing will solve it.Space constraints are my reason for parting with it. Only room for my Thorens with a 78 rpm speed. Due to the nature of classic audio equipment, it is sold as is, without any implied warranty. Regarding shipping, the outer platter and spindle will be removed from the plinth. It will be packaged with great care to insure safe transit.
