The high-end impressive EAT Turntable

Massive turntable with Subchassis

Clamp included

Tonearm options

Dustcover & Cartridge not included

On customer's site installation and set-up within European Union included

 

  • Separate Sub Chassis and a mass loaded turntable
  • Platter has 12 brass inserts and one top brass insert under vinyl top plate for increased speed stability and weight of the platter.
  • Chrome bearing block
  • Bearing spindle with new coating for lowest friction possible
  • Optional new F-Note tonearm
  • Fortissimo Base optionally available: isolates the turntable perfectly from any resonances from the ground

 

The platter

has been upgraded with 12 brass inserts and one top brass insert under vinyl top plate add additional weight and further stabilize the platter for even better speed stability. It consists of two parts. The first part uses a soft alloy, the second part, a harder one. This reduces energy flow. The first part also incorporates the neodymium magnets. The platter weighs more than 22 kg. The diameter of the platter is 400 mm (not the usual 300 mm). This means that with the same weight you gain more moving mass on the platter. The platter also incorporates sorbothane damping to make it resonance free.

 

The bearing

is not standard but inverted with an oversized polished shaft. The new platter with its huge mass creates more energy, which has to be absorbed better. Therefore we designed a new bearing block with a chrome alloy able to withstand more energy and damp the entire system more effectively. In addition the bearing spindle has a new "Movic" coating with the lowest friction coefficient possible (6 times less than previous spindle versions). This is the same coating that is used by NASA for bearings in satellites.

A ceramic ball is used on the top because it is very hard and inert. This, in combination with a Teflon plate as a bearing mirror, is also a good damping device. Teflon's accurate satin surface produces perfectly smooth movement without any rumble. The platter has a magnetic suspension using neodymium magnets. By increasing the distance from the bearing to the cartridge, the small neodymium magnets eliminate magnetic influence on the cartridge. Due to the magnets we can still move a large mass allowing the bearing to see virtually no pressure. This avoids rumble. (A mass loaded platter usually causes high levels of rumble.) The pressure of the bearing is adjustable. There are different philosophies about the bearing pressure. With the Forte turntable you can adjust it according your preferences and taste..

 

The Motor

(applies only to Fortissimo motor, not Fortissimo S motor!)
The motor is a stand-alone, decoupled AC unit. It uses a sophisticated electronic circuit to create 100% clean AC. It is very heavy motor with lot of mass to reduce all the existing vibrations. Motor energy is absorbed by using a sandwich system of metal and MDF. We decided to use a "dual motor design" to eliminate noise in the motor. By using two relatively weak, but silent running motors, we achieve perfect torque.

 

The Belt

Long belts usually have some amount of wobble. To avoid this we use a special silicon string. This movement is also absorbed by the bearing block and by the huge mass of the platter itself.

 

The F-Note tonearm

The F-Note Tonearm is a new E.A.T tonearm design that mixes a high mass tonearm with a low-friction bearing. Due to the high mass these tonearm usually have to use a bearing that is a little bit "slower". The F-Note goes a different way and innovates on a new level. The tonearm is very easy to set up and also a perfect match for the new Jo No. 8 cartridge.

The C-Note 12'' tonearm (option)

The C-Note tonearm is a completely new design which combines all advantages of an unipivot arm with a cardan design. The uni-pivot in the middle only helps bearing to be less loaded. The traditional Cardan bearing insures high stabilty and easiness of use with very low friction. Also inside the tonearm is a special silicon-based grease to damp the tonearm / cartridge resonances by more than 50%.
