    Franz-Josef's email address is : info@tonabnehmerservice.de

    highly highly recommeded, he has worked his majic on a number of B&O MMCx carts for me over the years and these are much preferred over the new Soundsmith B&O SMMC alternatives coming out of Peter Ledermann's shop.
    Axel Schürholz now passed over all his activities to Franz-Josef Schulte not only the B&O section like before. They retipped my Yamaha MC-9 with excellent results. I will send it again if necessary.

    Now re-named Ana Might Sound, and still highly recommended. Francois at Ana Mighty has particular experience with Miyajima cartridges, which means any Miyajima owner can keep their cartridge going pretty much indefinitely, at reasonable cost.

    I too can also recommend Ana Mighty Sound . I have had the chance of listening to some of their modifications like the Denon 103 based 103.two, 103.three, 103.four and EMT based Mighty TNT15 first hand at home on my system and I was totally sold to what I heard

    Default Goldring G900 stylus

    I recently put my old Goldring G900SE which had been retipped many years with a 0.5 thou naked spherical stylus by Expert Stylus back into play. It still sounded very good, so I splashed out £93 on a new hyperelliptical stylus ('Tonar') from Mantra Audio. This is exceptionally good. In my Mayware MkV arm it tracks everything at 1.1g and in overall sound quality clearly beats my previous (very good) Denon DL103 with Esco sapphire cantilever and Paratrace stylus. If you have an old G900, this replacement stylus is well worth a shot.

    The Goldring always was a very good cartridge and a bit of a sleeper.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Default Ortofon cartridge re-tip/repair

    I can thoroughly recommend Kilian Bakker at http://holisticaudio.nl/services.html. He recently restored the suspension on my Ortofon Vienna and fitted an FGS stylus. The result retains all of the dynamics of the Ortofon Akzent series and adds detail retrieval on a par with the Windfeld.

    I believe he used to work for Ortofon, and his services are up there with the best.

    Renewing the suspension and installing the FGS stylus cost 400 euros.
