E.A.T. C-NOTE Tonearm Series
The EAT C-Note tonearm is a completely new design which combines all advantages of an unipivot arm with a cardan design.
The C-Note tonearm is available in 12", 10" and 9" versions.
The uni-pivot in the center only helps the bearing to be less loaded. The traditional Cardan bearing insures high stability and ease of use with very low friction.
Also, inside the tonearm is a special silicon-based grease to dampen the tonearm / cartridge resonances by more than 50%. The arm-tube is made of special super stiff and rigid carbon.
We made the headshell out of special light and rigid aluminium to get the perfect combination of the advantages of carbon with better inner damping of the aluminium. This also allows for a tighter mounting of High End Moving Coil cartridges.

E.A.T. LP CLAMP
Elegant platter clamp for optimized sound tuning. It perfectly couples the record to the platter and absorbs vibration almost perfectly due to its extreme mass.
Damping is everything. Most record players can only sound dynamic and clean when resonances are muted. Especially the record itself, the mat and the turntable are often the reason of strong vibrations that a modern phono cartridge is relentlessly subjected to. There are a myriad of techniques to master resonances. The most expensive and effective method is mass loading. Vibrations are energy, and mass transforms vibrational energy into heat !!!
It works very well, if the material itself not only has HIGH mass but also has a strong inner damping. Modern metal alloys are ideal for this! Material and production of such metals is unfortunately very expensive. Why does nobody do that, even though it's so easy? The new EAT Clamp Massive is a perfect product with the latest in metallurgy technology manufactured on high-precision CNC machines.
The turntable gets a much higher level of kinetic energy, which in turn leads to better synchronization and this better isolates the whole system from motor influences. The sound result is calmer – this more balanced sound is neutral without boom effect and makes music appear more dynamic with finer detail.
The EAT Clamp Massive is an ideal upgrade for all turntable drives except models with subchassis.
