Also consider doing it yourself. There are multiple threads on the net discussing the fact that Clearaudio apparently uses Audio Technica as their OEM. The styli from the AT-95 series can be fitted into the Clearaudio bodies (at least up to Virtuoso) wth minor modification. I have a CA Aurum Beta S which had a bad needle. Replaced it with the Shibata variant (also available: elliptical and line contact)of the AT95 which is a big step up from the elliptical stylus on the Aurum series. It was surprisingly easy, and less expensive than any other option. My "adjusted" cartridge is now in heavy rotation and one of my favorite 5 among the 30 or so carttidges I own.
