Retip lyra delos and upgrade

I have a broken Delos and want to retip. I was wondering if it will be good to make an upgrade, since i like very much like originally was. 

Boron Fritz Gyger 2

Boron Fritz Gyger S 



please let me know if you have any experience.

thank you! 


@needlestein This is great information, thank you. For retipping I’ve used both Andy Kim and Soundsmith and have been pleased with both, the former having a quicker TAT. TBH, I’ve never really thought about how and where they source their cantilevers and diamonds. I am also okay with having a "Frankenstein" non original cart as long as it sounds great and tracks well, which has been the case every time with a retip or "recantilever". I retipped my previous Delos with Soundsmith using their TOTL retip option, and the Delos was returned to me and worked flawlessly.  Edit:  Speaking of Gyger, I am currently using a Stanton 980 LZS with a stylus retipped with Gyger S.  Sounds absolutely fantastic and tracks like a beast! 

@rauliruegas Yes!  In fact, it was @needlestein Jesph Long that retipped this Stanton stylus (sent by the previous owner I believe).  Didn't put 2 and 2 totgether.  Thanks Joseph, this D98 Gyger retipped stylus is perfect for this Stanton 980.  I also have the original D98 Stereohedron and I swear the Gyger is better at the inner grooves for treble extension and utter lack of any IGD traces.

Dear @gakerty  : He has several retip options that other retipers do not handle in their catalogue list. Even he can recoil that's a task that almost the other retipers just don't do it.

He is a trusty and friendly gentleman. Recomended.



As there is not a Thread dedicated to listing Cart' Refurb - Rebuild Services, I am adding to this thread a Service available in Europe that offer a FGS retip and other Styli as well.

It seemingly makes sense that a Thread is produced that consolidates all the Contacts for Services that are to be found referred to in a multiple of Threads on this forum.
