THE ROBB REPORT UK NAMES THE C-SHARP THE BEST OF THE BEST FOR THE "SLICKEST TECH MONEY CAN BUY" 

 

   "The EAT turntable performed so superbly and was so inexpensive that the audiophile may build a near state of the art system with the C-Sharp at its core. How about that: phono reproduction with amazing sound, easy to setup and tweak, and all at reasonable cost!
 
… a tour de force from A-to-Z. The arm tracks on ABEC 7 bearings, the same bearings used in the SME V! No better bearings are available on the planet Earth.
 
Considering that the EAT C-Sharp is $3000, some $1000 less than at its introduction, one can afford to build out a stellar phono system using it as the core turntable. My friends, it is really that excellent and looks much more expensive. I cannot imagine a better table under $7000 or $8000 for a table, NOT including the arm. Included is a precision EAT 10” arm that makes many well-thought-of, well known artisan arm efforts look cheesy and inflexible. I would pay $3000 just for the arm!
 
If you want virtually state-of-the-art phono playback for under $10,000, including cartridge, build your system starting with the time-tested EAT C Sharp Turntable and Arm Combo at its heart. The EAT C-Sharp Turntable Combination is that good! The EAT C-Sharp Turntable is the key piece and a no-holds-barred winner…My highest recommendation." - Bob Levi

 

The C-Sharp is one of the most highly reviewed models in the line. The design starts with a super thin base built, up of two sections offering incredible stiffness and setup flexibility. The base section is constructed of the highest density MDF then finished is high gloss piano lacquer. The second top section is built from high tech Carbon Fiber which offers great strength with the advantage of energy damping creating a super quiet, beautiful design. 

An ultra low noise motor is mounted on the base as well as 10 damping feet out of energy absorbing TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers = High tech high energy absorbing damping material). The cone shape TPE columns carry a SANDWICH sub chassis out of Carbon Fiber and MDF composite with ultimate rigidity.

Like all other European Audio Team platters, this one is high mass and built up of two bonded materials: machined alloy and vinyl. This allows for the advantages mass adds to speed stability, with both the greatest energy transfer from the record while quieting via the dual materials.

The tonearm is an entirely new design which combines the advantages of a Uni-Pivot with that of a Cardan design. The Uni-Pivot in the middle helps reduce bearing loading while the Cardan bearing insures high stability and very low friction. Additionally, this design uses a special silicon-based grease to damp the tonearm reducing resonances by more then 50%.

Motor control is done by way of an external speed control network with Stop, 33-1/3 and 45 RPM settings. Speed control is monitored by a special microprocessor unit insuring great stability and fast operation.
