How about getting the cartridge retipped? Look at Soundsmith for options.

My dealer gave me a nice trade in for my Lyra Dorian. However the new element will be a Dynavector. He recently sold a Dynavector however the owner liked the sound of the card very much and decided to upgrade to a Dynavector higher up in the line. So the dealer had a Dynavector with less the 100/200 hours that he could sell for a nice price.
The Te Kaitora Rua is a "2nd" hand. The previous owner used it for a week or so then traded the cart in for a Dyna higher up in the line.
So the price difference between a new Delos and this cart was negligible. So I took the gamble and had the Dyna installed. Picked up my turntable today. But due to some social events I have not listen much yet.
