Collapsed suspension repairable?

Recommended Posts

I have an Ortofon Quintet Bronze that seems to have a collapsed suspension, the question is.... is it repairable?

 

I tried to fit it yesterday but even at 1.3 grammes the body was resting on the record, I swapped it out for another cart (VdH DDT II) and at the same downforce the cart body looked normal.

 

If it is repairable, who do I send it to and is it worth putting on a better (different) stylus profile?

Maybe contact Garrott Brothers?

I have recently fitted an Ortofon 2MM Silver and was quite shocked as to how low slung the stylus is. Plays nice though..

They always looked low to me but actually on the record at 1.3gr as per the OP is ..... well ..... too low.

I may have to try again, loving the VdH DDT II atm though.

Must be something in the water..... 

I've had a carts suspension drop out too.... 

I suppose out of every crises comes opportunity?

 Good luck with yours Batty.
