The Town known for one of the World most Famous and Significant Scientists, renews life for Tesla.

Rigorous testing and high specification standards make European Audio Team vacuum tubes the premier brand available today.

Jozefina Lichtenegger

Jozefina Lichtenegger got her introduction to vacuum tubes in the late 1990s while working as the representative for VAIC vacuum tubes in the western world.   Alesa Vaic is Jozefina’s sister-in-law and was
the proprietor of VAIC, which was at the time
considered to be one of the most revered and sought after brands available.

After VAIC ceased operations, Jozefina decided to carry on VAIC’s mission herself with her EAT brand.  Today, European Audio Team manufactures the finest KT88 vacuum tubes available using the manufacturing equipment previously in the Tesla Vrsovice factory, and they also test, measure, and select other popular vacuum tube varieties from among the very best that Eastern Europe has to offer and gives those few special vacuum tubes the EAT brand name.

This testing and selection process takes place using the most sophisticated equipment and methods in the industry, ensuring that vacuum tubes with the EAT brand on them will consistently perform to very exacting standards.

All EAT small signal tubes come with EAT’s Cool Damper attached to them.  The Cool Valve Damper is also available separately and is the best product on the market today for the regulation of vacuum tube temperature and the control of resonant energies that would negatively affect the operation of the vacuum tube.

Because of the requirements and specifications that
must be met, EAT small signal tubes are sometimes
in short supply.

Let's take a tour of the Tesla factory where all the 
E.A.T. new tubes are made in the traditional manner.
