The Austrian company with the pretentious name European Audio Team ( EAT) has expanded its line of turntables with the EAT C-Dur model . According to the manufacturer, the new turntable brings the luxurious design of the premium EAT Fortissimo to a more affordable price range. The EAT C-Dur turntable is based on a 5 cm thick MDF board. The 13.5 inch diameter platter weighing over six kilograms is supported through a Teflon plate on a stainless steel bearing with a ceramic ball.
The turntable is equipped with a low-noise, fully vibration-isolated motor and is characterized by a low level of rumble. The body of the turntable rests on three shock-absorbing and height-adjustable aluminum supports, which ensure a perfect level of the table and minimize vibrations.
The EAT C-Dur has the same signature 10″ C-Note arm as the C-Sharp. A feature of the C-Note tonearm is the presence of a damper in the bearing housing. This solution, using a special silicone-based lubricant, is claimed to reduce tonearm/cartridge resonance by over 50%. The C-Note tonearm combines a rigid, lightweight carbon fiber tube with an aluminum shell to provide the necessary rigidity and low resonance.
The EAT C-Dur turntable can be ordered with an EAT Jo No 5 moving coil cartridge. The novelty is offered in two finishes – Satin Black and plum wood veneer. The EAT C-Dur player is already on sale in the US. In black trim, the price of new items starts at $ 3,799 . For veneer finish you will have to pay from $ 4,499 .
