"The C-Major Turntable Hits all the right notes."
"I was really impressed with the C-Major. It's well built, easy to put together, and it sounds fantastic. “I thought the C Major demonstrated the essence of the “vinyl sound. I was continually blown away. The C-Major’s overall smoothness, rich dynamics and detail simply crushed my Thorens. It was the first time that I’ve had a turntable in my home that wasn’t dramatically more expensive than the value of my Thorens but against which I felt my setup wasn’t competitive.”

“The C-Major is an excellent way to put discerning music fans into a vinyl solution without the audiophile pricing normally associated with some turntables.” - Bob Archer, February 2017

"I’ve had years of experience with Pro-Ject ’tables, but it was immediately apparent that the EAT C-Major is cut from entirely different cloth. There are many ways to build turntables, and in its line EAT uses two of the more common methods: a massive platter and plinth, or a slimmer, more elegant design. But unless you knew that the two companies are linked by marriage, you’d never guess that there was any relationship between the two brands.

Low in profile, and all gloss black and brushed silver, the C-Major fairly screams sophistication, and while it’s EAT’s least expensive turntable, it’s still obviously a luxury product. But the C-Major is far from an entry-level ’table. The whole shebang just oozed sophistication. There’s much to be said for a truly compact turntable -- one that echoes the simplicity, elegance, and user-friendliness of the Denons and Duals of yore. Combine such elegance with high-tech materials and exemplary finishing -- as EAT has in the C-Major -- and you’ve got a winner. 

Listening to the Pro-Ject is like working for an insurance company. Listening to the C-Major was akin to taking an exciting holiday, the aural equivalent of climbing to Machu Picchu. And who doesn’t want to climb up to Machu Picchu!

The C-Major’s slamming out the music and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. For the moment I’ve dispensed with my reviewing duties, and I’m ready to put aside my computer and just listen. I’m in no rush to reinsert my Pro-Ject in the system, and that says much about how good the C-Major really is.

This new turntable from EAT is a wonderful component and a lovely little turntable -- and I use little in its most complimentary sense. Highly recommended.Jason Thorpe  November 1, 2016

A $40,000 System I'd Consider Today, Sound Unheard  "...I believe I’d be inspired to order my first turntable. I’d get the European Audio Team C-Major ($2495). It’s not crazy expensive, and I like its classic look and the fact that it comes with EAT’s C-Note 9” tonearm and an Ortofon Quintet Blue cartridge."  Jeff Fritz  November 1, 2016


Eat C-Major Turntable" It looks stunning in an understated, techy kind of way, and is easy to set up. Best of all it sounds fantastic. You rarely get all of this at just over two grand. I look forward to investigating more of what this company’s turntable range has to offer. Highly recommended."Jeff Dorgay  October 31, 2016

Germany's LP Magazine

"The EAT C-Major is a very serious turntables in its not too crowded price range… The drive and chassis are very good and the tonearm is in a class by itself."


"The EAT C-Major turntable is a very beautiful specimen of a subchassis player. Its compact design assures success, thanks to its attractive finish, carbon fiber and aluminum components, and even an included dust cover."

Ortofon Quintet Blue Cartridge @ Hi-fi Choice magazine

"It offers the most comprehensive and enjoyable performance with all music, showing Ortofon has clearly hit upon another magic formula... It presents all the detail in the track with real dynamism … Its soundstage is expansive left to right… and it also possesses a greater talent for bringing instruments within it to life."

E.A.T. is proud to be selling one of its most important turntables to date: the C-Major. Why “important”? Because it represents a completely new price point, an entry level offering from E.A.T. that will satisfy all seasoned music lovers who require a high-value-for-money turntable, and a perfect solution for those new to the delights of the vinyl LP. 

We have identified a segment of the hi-fi market where those who would like to purchase turntables with greater performance and sophistication than that which is available in the budget sector, but with a price point below the widely-acclaimed C-Sharp – our most successful turntable to date. And it is the technology of C-Sharp that enabled us to develop the C-Major.

Pun intended, the differences between the C-Sharp and the C-Major are minor! All were considered carefully to offer the best price without compromising the performance. These changes include a 9" C-Note tonearm, instead of 10”, a smaller footprint, clamp, and platter. Instead of the C-Sharp’s electronic speed control, the C-Major uses an easy manual speed control method.

Shipped complete with a record clamp and fitted dust cover, and offered in a specially-priced package with the Ortofon Quintet Blue cartridge, the C-Major will extract the best from the vinyl LP – undoubtedly a blast from the past that just happens to be the future of music in the home!
