The suspension is replaced anytime the stylus is.
EDIT: Hehe, oops forget what I said if you guys are talking about retipping but the sealed body thing still doesn't make sense.
Don't question the expertise of those guys:-they are the best in the business,that includes soundsmith etc:-they provide the tips and sapphire cantilevers etc to the other re-tipping companies but withhold their best product for their sole use,its possibly a misinterpretation of Wyndhams explanation of what a sealed body is:-maybe the tube the cantilever suspension is in:-may be implying that trying to remove/replace suspension would cause irrecoverable damage to the assembly:-unlike a lot of companies Expert will not just take your money and do a botched job,they would rather refuse the work
Before making such accusations you may have been wise to look up their history:-they are the company decca turned to to figure a way of bonding the diamond tip in the london cartridge and they were the company Shure turned to to try and keep production of the v15xmr going when working with beryllium was outlawed in Japan,but it was already against UK law to work with it:-Shure had the styluses for that model made there,not in the US or Mexico,they were just assembled there
