In 2017, EAT's Jo N°5 moving-coil cartridge raised the bar for affordable transducers capable of high-end performance. Reviewers around the world acknowledged that it was remarkable for a cartridge at its price point. But, they mused, what would E.A.T. deliver with no price constraints?
Jo N°8 is the answer, a superlative evolution of the Jo No 5 — crafted with the utmost attention to detail, with exclusive components and a precision-made body. A demanding design process for demanding outcomes. A cartridge acts as a transducer, converting mechanical information into an electrical signal – making it, in the opinion of EAT, the most critical element in the audio chain.
Now available in North America, the Jo N°8 features a solid chestnut body and internal components shared with Ortofon’s top-of-the-line offerings. A shibata stylus with a boron cantilever deliver better resolution and extension in the high frequencies.
