Why would anyone bother with a used overpriced ARO.

Nap250,Nac82,High cap plus other Naim black and olive.
Tomorrow we enter the town of my birth, I want to be ready.

A masterclass in packaging there. The arm itself is probably easily worth twice what Roger is selling it for. In a straight A/B comparison against the Ekos SE , many people will prefer the surefooted musically fluid sound of this arm, disregarding the price difference.
When that is brought into the equation, its a no brainer. Who on earth is going to buy an Akito now ?


At its price it must represent one of hifi's biggest bargains..........................
