A new entry level offering from E.A.T. that will satisfy seasoned music lovers who require a high-value-for-money turntable.
E.A.T. is proud to announce the availability of its most important turntable 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.
E.A.T. 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 them to develop the C-Major.
Pun intended, the differences between the C-Sharp and the C-Major are minor. All were incorporated to reduce costs and features, without compromising the performance. To achieve the lower price, the following changes were applied:
◾The C-Note tonearm on the C-Major is 9” in length instead of 10”
◾There is no separate speed control
◾The main chassis has a more compact footprint◾The platter clamp is smaller
◾The platter is smaller
Shipped complete with 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!
