Anniversary sale continues – analogue style!
Posted on November 28th, 2014
Turntables and all things analogue are the very back bone of this company. While turntables and vinyl are experiencing a renaissance of sorts, they have never left the shelves at the Ark. To that end, our 35th anniversary sale will continue to feature the wide array of phono products we carry.

Usable bass response is said to in the region of 52 Hz; quite remarkable when you consider the speaker is a little over a foot tall! $1099.00/pr MSRP.
