Recently my Zyx Airy3 is runout of tip and need to retip . I can trade in and exchange for a new cartridge in similar price or higher , mean I may have to pay another $2500-3500 to have a new cartridge . Or I can go for a cheaper option of just retip only . I choose the second option of retip my cartridge and the job has been done by Mr Christ Allman ( allclearaudio@gmail.com ) . 
I get the cartridge back yesterday and I’m very happy with the performance of the cartridge , thanks to Christ and his good works . Both channel working fine with very good details and warm pleasant bass tone . Tip is the MR ( micro ridge) diamond tip which longer than other tip there for will be longer lasting  hours . The airy3 has a boron cantilever and an aluminium sleeve to insert a diamond tip all are glue together made it a nightmare to retip . Christ has modified the cantilever so he can fit a new tip and this will made lots easier in the future to retip the cartridge again . Cost for the whole job is $396.00 including extra modification work , I attached some photos so members can see how the work when finished . Hope that posted will benefit ours members who can’t afford a new cartridge and wish to retip theirs old cartridge . 
Cheers and happy listening.

Chris has upgraded 2 cartridges for me.

A Nagaoka and Linn ASAK, both with boron and micro ridge.

He does fabulous work, couldn't be happier.

It's nice that you refer to him as Christ......

Another very grateful customer here too. I sent Chris a Technics U205CMKIII for a replacement stylus to be fitted as the suspension had collapsed. Chris had already told me that working on the original boron cantilever is a near impossible task and a right royal PITA.

Anyway Chris sorted out a new Black Diamond stylus but amazingly had a go at repairing the original and fixed it! 

I think he called me a lucky bugger or words similar. The cost for the fix and new Black Diamond stylus was beyond reasonable.

   Everything arrived today packaged beautifully( I sent it up in a mints tin) Chris was surprised it survived......

  I also had a P77 retipped recently and it sounds fantastic.... No bloody amazing!!

  I've said before we are lucky to have Chris around..... 

Cheers Ian.

Unfortunately, I sent Chris and email (the one provided by palexsia above and have not received a reply for about a week now. Still waiting...

Gandra, send Palexia a DM and ask him for Chris's phone number.
