VAS Cartridge Repair - Great Job Steve Leung

VAS Cartridge Repair - Great Job Steve Leung

Postby Peer Gynt » Tue Jul 31, 2018 10:28 pm

I mentioned in Harry’s thread on cartridge repair that I’d sent a cartridge to Steve Leung at VAS and that the turnaround time had been very short. It was just a bit over two weeks, including ground transportation time from TN to NJ and back.

I picked up a Dual Pivot kit while I was waiting for the cartridge to get back, and this evening I finished the set up. More on that in another thread.

Regarding the repair though, I am very pleased. The cartridge is doing everything right. It is even better than new.

Steve Leung and VAS are definitely worth giving custom. I will use them again.

I had the pleasure of hanging out with the 'great man' who looked at my VAS Nova setup and validated that all was good for me - now I can enjoy his work of art and be happy! :D

Here is a picture of me with Steve during my recent visit to his HQ in Cliffwood NJ!

So here's my Steve story.

Last Saturday I was dusting off my turntable and trashed my Vas Nova cartridge. Problem was I was hosting 45 members of the New Jersey Audio Society at my house Sunday. I got in touch with Steve and he came over Sunday with his beautiful wife and a brand new Vas mounted to a VPI armwand. Armwand did not fit on my pivot, so Steve transferred the cart to my arm and let the party begin. And Steve hung around until the end so we could spin disks all afternoon.

Steve took my cart with him to repair and I picked it up today. It sounds better than before and that's saying something.

Oh and we had a special guest at the party.

Great endorsement(s) of Steve's work. I don't know Steve nor have I had a cartridge re tipped by a third party, but based on user comments and Steve's growing reputation, I just might give him a try.
