EAT E-Flat Turntable
Equipped With Revolutionary Ultra-Rigid Flat Tonearm, the Cutting-Edge EAT E-Flat Brings New Dimensions to Every Record You Play
Seemingly Indestructible Build Quality With Non-Resonant Tonearm Design: EAT E-Flat Boasts Dead-Quiet Backgrounds and Dead-On Speed StabilityForget, just for a few seconds, that this gorgeous cutting-edge turntable is available at half-off its retail cost. Focus, instead, on its near-indestructible build quality, pioneering non-resonant flat tonearm, and dead-on speed stability. Capable of revealing new dimensions on any record you play, EAT's E-Flat turntable also delivers dead-quiet backgrounds, soulful musicality, and superb ease of use. Now, given that this desirable musical instrument was a great buy at full price, the 50% savings makes it a downright steal.
A New Breakthrough in Tonearm Design, Coupled With an Amazing Unipivot System
While flat arms have previously been included on select turntables, none have offered the rigidity necessary to deliver the stable performance demanded from modern tonearms. The ultra-cool EAT E-Flat accomplishes this feat and more, and for a price that you cannot afford to ignore. Aided by innovations in carbon-fiber technology, the revolutionary flat arm boasts the practical and aesthetic benefits of a flat form and contains none of the weaknesses. Ultra-light and ultra-rigid, the 10-inch tonearm is supported by a unipivot bearing. A breakthrough in itself, E-Flat's unipivot system is extremely precise and accurately balanced. Unwanted motion is eliminated by the high mass of unipivot housing and added security of two metal guides.
Why a Flat Arm is Better, and Why You'll Hear Clearer Musical Details
The E-Flat's flat arm tube translates to multiple benefits for both the designer and listener. Its shape encourages the design of a flatter platter with easier, visible arm leveling. With perfect integration to the unipivot pillar, there's no hollow tube susceptible to echo effects or ringing. Greater stiffness, and a superior hanging counterweight design with high damping properties, also contribute quiet and incredibly fast performance. Better still, the carbon-fiber arm tube can be changed by the user to address to specific cartridge requirements. Adjustable anti-skating and a damped cueing lever are also fitted.
Stupendous Build Quality Extends to Oversize Platter, Two Motors, and Bearing Assembly
You won't ever have to worry about E-Flat's durability. As solid as any 'table we've seen, it's built to last several lifetimes. The belt-driven E-Flat features two motors that do not run in parallel but instead act like a virtual 24-pole motor. The belt encircles an inner sub-platter, which is fitted with inside bearings made out of bronze bushings. Claiming a robust 33cm diameter that increases the moving mass to twice that of the standard 30cm platter, the main platter rests on an inverted bearing and a ceramic ball. Underneath, the platter is filled with Sorbothane to stop resonance. Providing even more accuracy and stability, the bearing assembly and platter aperture are also suspended. This 'table epitomizes tank-like build specs and perfect timing signatures.
