diamond tip replacement
When the precious tip is worn of your cartridge, what do you do ?

Replace the cartridge by a new one (expensive)
Replace the tip.

When the last option is chosen, by whom ?
Didn't hear much of Van Den Hul lately.

Are there others who do replacements ?

There are two elements that need attention, the stylus itself and the suspension/damping. Back in the MM days, you'd automatically replace them both at the same time. Not so with MCs- make sure that whoever you choose does more of a rebuild than a retip.

Thanks Sy,

you are very right.
So lets refrase the question in a rebuild.

Who has its cartridge rebuild recently, what are the results and who has done the rebuild ?
