The highly acclaimed EAT C-Sharp mis undoubtedly the company’s most recognized model
AN AWARDED TURNTABLE BUILT UPON HIGH TECHNOLOGY
Thanks to new materials like Carbon Fibre and Thermoplastic Elastomer, Eat achieved a unique, “superflat” table. The low profile base chassis is made out of highest density MDF. Because of its flatness this base sits perfectly stable on any surface! On this base the ultra low noise motor is mounted together with 10 damping feet out of energy absorbing TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers = Hightech high energy absorbing damping material). The cone shape TPE columns carry a SANDWICH sub-chassis out of Carbon Fibre and MDF composite with ultimate rigidity.
The stiffness is important to be a super rigid base for the tonearm/cartridge and bearing/platter as there must be 100 % no moving tolerance between the distance of the groove and the tracking cartridge. All the rumble of the platter / bearing is directed in the TPE columns. The TPE structure avoids any unwanted energy of motor and surface or surrounding vibration leading to the sub-chassis or even to the tonearm cartridge itself.
The C-Sharp bearing is oversized and inverted with an inert, resonance free ceramic ball on top. Around the bearing is set a super heavy 700g mass point which absorbs all nearby energy. The stiff carbon sub-chassis helps to transport all vibration in this mass point. So vibrations are transferred in heat. The platter itself is formed from a special alloy of very inert aluminium and is also damped by TPE inserts. It from 2 parts a sub-platter and a main-platter to keep it flat although having very high mass and kinetic energy.
The belt is made from special anti-static rubber. It’s glued and then polished.
The tonearm itself is a completely new design which combines all advantages of a uni-pivot arm with a cardan design. The uni-pivot in the middle only helps the bearing to be less loaded. The traditional Cardan bearing insures high stability and ease of movement with very low friction. Also inside the tonearm is a special silicon-based grease to damp the tonearm / cartridge resonances by more then 50%
The tube is again out of carbon , super stiff and rigid. The headshell is constructed from light and rigid aluminium to get a perfect combination of the advantages of carbon with the better inner damping of the aluminium as well as the possibility of more tighter mounting of high-end MC cartridges.
An external DC power supply unit with an AC Generator creates new total clean power for the motors . For sure you have also 33 /45 electronic switching.
