EAT B-Sharp turntable
European Audio Team (E.A.T) announces B-Sharp turntable, with engineered cues taken directly from the company’s award-winning and highly acclaimed C-Major turntable. The B-Sharp sheds all of the non-essential cosmetic adornments of the C-Major without compromising performance or mechanical integrity, providing vinyl enthusiasts with a superb playback option at a more affordable price. The B-Sharp turntable features the new B-Note tonearm, made from a carbon fiber alloy that is light yet rigid with a black anodized aluminum headshell. The B-Note tonearm provides all of the key features for cartridge alignment and adjustability: VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle), SRA (Stylus Rake Angle), VTF (Vertical Tracking Force), azimuth and a slotted headshell for overhang / offset angle. The anti-skate mechanism has been engineered for more intuitive calibration, making setup of the B-Sharp notably easier than competitive products. A proprietary low noise motor, floating chassis, aluminum platter and a high-density MDF low profile base are included as standard features of the B-Sharp. Like the C-Major, the B-Sharp uses a high-tech TPE (thermoplastic elastomers) suspension system that works in concert with adjustable feet that provide levelling ability for the table. The B-Sharp comes equipped with a factory installed Ortofon 2M Blue Cartridge, hinged dustcover, low mass aluminum record clamp ( in some countries is not included) and a felt platter mat-all included. The B-Sharp delivers a level of performance commensurate with turntables at a significantly higher price Point. And we are confident that the B-Sharp will bring joy and lasting satisfaction to music aficionados everywhere. Factoring in the new tonearm, the easy-to-use anti-skate and the ready-to-play nature of the B-Sharp, we are confident that this product will become an instant classic.
EAT C-Major turntable
A new entry level offering from E.A.T. that will satisfy seasoned music lovers who require a high-value-for-money turntable.
E.A.T. is proud to announce the availability of its most important turntable to date: the C-Major. Why “important”? Because it represents a completely new price point, an entry level offering from E.A.T. that will satisfy all seasoned music lovers who require a high-value-for-money turntable, and a perfect solution for those new to the delights of the vinyl LP. We at E.A.T. have identified a segment of the hi-fi market where those who would like to purchase turntables with greater performance and sophistication than that which is available in the budget sector, but with a price point below the widely-acclaimed C-Sharp – our most successful turntable to date. And it is the technology of C-Sharp that enabled us to develop the C-Major. Pun intended, the differences between the C-Sharp and the C-Major are minor. All were incorporated to reduce costs and features, without compromising the performance. To achieve the lower price, the following changes were applied:
The C-Note tonearm on the C-Major is 9” in length instead of 10”
There is no separate speed control
The main chassis has a more compact footprint
The platter clamp is smaller
The platter is smaller
EAT C-Sharp turntable
EAT , leaded by Jozefina Lichtenegger, a lady with distinct for elegance and design, went into the turntable business with completely new approach . High End turntables get big,massy and bulky close to phallic. When the technical design goes into extrem!
European Audio Team wants to offer tables with the maximum of technology and Performance but still elegant looking. The Forte and Forte S with their special designed superlative heavy platter have been a revolution in the Highend AudioMarket . Never a turntable combined such Kinetic energie in such elegant products. Later the E-Flat topped the concept with the first unseeable super falt highend platter in a wonderfull mass loaded dual Motor Design.
The success of the E-Flat motivated EAT to bring an even more elegant and slim turntable to the market. The C- SHARP. Thanks to new materials like Carbon Fibre and Termoplastic Elastomer Eat was designing a new superflat table. The low profil base chassis is made out of highest density MDF. Because of its flatness this base sits perfectly stable on any surface! On this base the ultra low noise motor is mounted as well as 10 damping feets out of energy absorbing TPE (Termoplastic Elastomers = Hightech high energy absorbing damping material). The cone shape TPE columns carry a SANDWICH subchassis out of Carbon Fibre and MDF composite with ultimate rigidity.
EAT Forte S Turntable
We have reduced size of the huge platter from the 40 cm to 36m and its weight from the 20kg to the 15 kg. It is still amazing in comparison to the standard 30 cm. The sense behind it is to store inside as much as possible of moving mass that is getting most effective on the outer side of the big radius. You can say the following: double size of diameter and four times more effective sound.
The platter incorporates from the inner side sorbothane damping and from the outer side black damping matt produced from the recycled vinyl that make platter completely quiet.
Terrific inverted bearing construction with ceramic ball on the top faces to the Teflon. The pressure on the ceramic ball is reduced by two enormous neodymium magnets that are holding the platter and take over most of the load from the heavy platter. The big brother Forte has built in two motors in separate chassis that makes its imposing 70 cm width. EAT Forte S is „only“ 55cm width and single-piece construction. It has also two AC motors but they are built symmetric on the right side besides of the platter, therefore you do not need two belts with different length as by big EAT Forte. Operating of the motor by display panel was getting simpler into the 3 main keys: 33.3, 45 and on/off button.
Both turntables are mass-loaded with huge magnetic feet, which act as a sub chassis. Forte S uses four magnetic feet with possible change of the height. This brings impressive low and excellently dumped resonance frequency of entire system. Standard distortions have no meaning at all for S and his brother as well.
