"A tale of the beauty and the beast"
E.A.T. C-SHARP TURNTABLE
EAT's mission is to design turntables that offer a maximum of Technology and Performance ... with very high aesthetic appeal.
The E-Flat, with its wonderful mass loaded dual Motor design, was the first to follow this concept with its super flat high tech platter.
The success of the E-Flat motivated EAT to bring an even more elegant and slim turntable to the market :
The EAT C- SHARP
... and thanks to new materials like Carbon Fibre and Thermoplastic Elastomer this became their "extra-super-flat" turntable...
...the key benefit being that its base sits "perfectly stable" on any surface!
The oversized inverted bearing sports an inert, resonance free ceramic ball and includes a super heavy 700g mass point that transforms to heat all unwanted vibrations from the stiff carbon subchassis.
The platter material is a special alloy of very inert aluminium and is damped by TPE inserts.
The tonearm is a completely new design that combines all advantages of unipivot and cardan design - low load, high stability and low friction. The super stiff and rigid carbon tube incorporates significant damping and the innovative headshell design allows superior cartridge mounting adherence.
As such, tonearm / cartridge resonances are damped by more then 50% !
