Smooth sound with sharp edges
The new EAT C-Dur comes classy with a very clean, but elegant look. With it‘s either high gloss plum, but still an eye-catcher in every living room.
EAT's idea was to bring the concept of the EAT Forte in a more compact format. The result is a similar smooth movement without any rumble, which ensures a superior sound quality. This differentiates EAT drives from the rest of the analog world.
The heavyweight 5,2 kg aluminium platter sits on a full aluminium 900g resonance-free sub platter. The massive inverted main bearing guarantees a silent playback with accurate speeds.
The mass loaded 1,8 kg bearing block uses a polished stainless-steel spindle with a ceramic ball on the top. A ceramic ball is used on the top because it is very hard and inert. This, in combination with a Teflon plate as a bearing mirror, is also a good damping device. Teflon‘s accurate satin surface produces perfectly smooth movement without any rumble.
The 10“ carbon EAT C-Note tonearm is not only an optical statement, it‘s a well though-out precision instrument. It combines all advantages of an unipi- vot arm with a cardan design. The uni-pivot in the middle only helps bearing to be less loaded. The traditional Cardan bearing insures high stability and easiness of use with very low friction.
Also, inside the tonearm is a special silicon-based grease to damp the tonearm / cartridge resonances by more than 50%.
The carbon tube offers the required stiffness, while the aluminum headshell convinces with its dam- ping of resonances - a perfect match!
A semi-balanced 5P DIN to RCA cable is included in the delivery. Simply upgrade to a balanced phono cable and benefit from a fully balanced signal transmission.
The ultra low noise motor of the new EAT C Dur is isolated and placed into a steel ring which is then mounted in the chassis. An external DC power supply unit with an AC generator creates a total clean power for the motor. A special anti-static polished rubber belt connects the motor with the aluminium sub platter.
Easily change speeds with the electronic speed control on the top plate. Place a record on the platter and set the correct speed with a push of a button.
The EAT C Dur is effectively decoupled from its surface by its feet. The three height adjustable damped aluminium feet guarantee the perfect stand & massively reduce risk of acoustical feedback.
The feet are able to absorb energy with its TPE (Termoplastic Elastomers) insert.
