 E.A.T. FORTE S TURNTABLE

After the first impressive model, the Forte, European Audio Team follows with the EAT Forte S - the Forte's smaller brother. The last letter "S" stands for "smaller".

 

In every respect however, there is in fact nothing "small" about this formidable turntable. All we did vs the Forte was to reduce the Platter diameter from 40cm to 36cm, thus reducing it weight from 20kg (44 lbs) to 15kg (33 lbs).

 

The Forte S still comes in at a very "forte" weight of 44kg !

The Forte S is mass-loaded with huge magnetic feet, which act as a sub chassis. It uses four height adjustable magnetic feet. This design structure impressively lowers and dampens the resonance frequency of the entire system.

 

The pressure on the inverted ceramic ball-teflon bearing is reduced by two enormous neodymium magnets that hold and take over most of the load from the heavy platter.

 

The two AC motors built symmetrically on the right side obviate the need for two belts with different lenghts.
