    You can send it back to Ortofon for a full rebuild to original spec for €870.
    You cant better than an Ortofon rebuild, unless you want to change the stylus shape.

    Kilian Bakker used to work for Ortofon, I'm led to believe.

    Have him refurb it and put a Fritz Gyger S on the end of it, you'll be grinning like a Cheshire cat, once properly set up and you hear it, it's amazing and I was also very surprised at the cost.

    Lets just say a lot less than the 870euro quoted above that Ortofon are asking - I know what I'd do, having gone that route already - no hesitation.
    My System:
    Amplification - Sansui AU-alpha 707 DR
    Turntable - Technics SP10 MK2-Technics EPA-250 Tonearm-Yannis Tome 423.5Plus tonearm cable-Eichmann KLEI Absolute Harmony plugs. Ortofon Cadenza Black moving coil cartridge-Fritz Gyger S re-tip. Panzerholz plinth.
    CDP - Pioneer PD-91
    Speakers - Spendor D7 on Soundcare SuperSpikes
    QED Silver Spiral speaker cable-airloc banana plugs
    Mains - Ultra Pure silver plated un-switched socket-Missing link EPS 500 silver plated plugs-Hi-Fi Tuning gold plated silver ceramic 13 amp fuses

    Ortofon rebuild any time of the day for me , basically you're getting brand new cartridge in old body with warranty and fully tested .
    Kilian is good but he can only replace stylus , clean coils if there is no damage due to debris getting there and reset suspension , tie wire - I believe full re-built is no longer an option as some parts are not available to him.

    No hesitation, send it too:
    Killian is your man,

    I've heard his work on a Kontrapunkt B and on a Ortofon Vienna.

    If I had the funds, I'd have bought this and sent it to him!
