What happens when the stylus tip wears out on a $12,000 cartridge?
Very educational and very easy to put the cart before the horse during repair. Will there be any return policy if you do not like the sound the repair makes? It would be interesting to hear if retipping or other repairs restore the sound you were ...

Canton Reference Any opininion?

Why would someone feel the need to comment unpleasant things on sale posts
The world is filled with A holes you run into them all your life these are just Audiogon a holes. The flip side of course are those folks with the knowledge and kindness to help in a non-judgmental way. As in life you take the good with the bad.
