The European Audio Team (E.A.T) 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.

We at 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 us 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!


  • Aluminum Record Clamp precision machined heavy aluminum for added mass, damping, and lower distortion. Creates a more secure and precise coupling for vinyl stability during playback

  • Cardan/Unipivot Tonearm Design features A 9" C-Note tonearm made from c arbon fibre with copper internal cable that combines all of the advantages of a unipivot arm with a Cardan design. The Cardan bearing for horizontal movement has been optimized for high stability, ease of use, and very low friction. It doesn't wobble like many unipivot designs do, and there is almost no bearing play in the lateral plane.

  • Lubricated Bearing with a silicon-based grease that damps tonearm/cartridge resonances by more than 50%.

  • Counterweight with TPE Damping absorbs high-energ vibrations. An additional insert that enables optimal balancing heavier cartridges is included

  • Multi-featured Tonearm provides all of the key features for cartridge alignment and adjustability: VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle), SRA (Stylus Rake Angle), VTF(Vertical Tracking Force), azimuth, anti-skate, and a slotted head-shell for overhang and offset angle.

  • Gold Plated RCA Input for better connectivity to the electronics.

  • TPE Suspension System features conical thermo-plastic elastomers (TPE) that significantly dampens vibrations

  • Damped adjustable feet work in concert with the TPE Suspension System and provide the ability to level the table without sacrificing the damped suspension feature

  • Carbon Alloy Tonearm that is light, but also super stiff and rigid.

  • Sandwich Aluminum Headshell made out of special light and rigid aluminum for the perfect combination of the advantages of carbon with the increased inner damping of the aluminum

  • Sandwich Floating Chassis low-profile and constructed of Carbon and MDF that gives the C-Major its "superflat" silhouette and contributes to the table stability on different surfaces. The carbon chassis and sub chassis provide a low mass and super rigid base. The light structures store less unwanted vibrational energy. The high strength carbon fiber provides rigid coupling where it needs to be highest, between the tone arm base and platter bearing. A 10Khz signal in the middle of a record has a peak to peak stylus movement of only 10 microns, so any movement in the chassis can cause significant loss in fidelity

  • The Sandwich Platter features TPE damping and the Vinyl Platter Mat sits on top of a belt-holding sub-platter. Both the platter and sub-platter are constructed from an aluminum / magnesium alloy and sit on bronze bearing. The vinyl mat serves an important function by working with the clamp to contribute to the smooth treble and taut bass of the EAT tables. At the interface between the record and the platter mat, if the mechanical impedance is the same then there is no reflection of power. The wave propagating through the record caused by the stylus moving in the grove is effectively passed to the mat. This is analogous to the optimized design of an electrical circuit where matching input and output impedances maximizes power transfer and eliminates reflections.

  • Ultra Low Noise Motor a proprietary AC motor and high precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for speed stability. The Motor, Motor Pully and Drive Belt are fixed on the main chassis. Adjustment of the drive belt allows for speed changes. The tonearm and platter are mounted on a separate suspended chassis, constructed by a sandwich of carbon fibre and MDF.

About E.A.T

Based in Vienna, Austria, E.A.T is led by Jozefina Lichtenegger who in 1998 started with vacuum tube production. Even today, every valve is handmade in the Czech Republic and rigorously tested on custom-made equipment to ensure unparalleled performance. EATs mission was to produce the most excellent 300B, and KT88 tubes money can buy, and they succeeded.

All European Audio Team high performance products have been designed to bring us as close as possible to the meaning and spirit of the original composition and performance. 

EATs innovative heavy platter design created a revolution in the high-end audio market when Lichtenegger launched her first turntable, the Forte, in 2009. The high mass platter moved the mass beyond the record edge so that there was more stability while opposing magnets placed below it reduced bearing pressure. Using their considerable R&D resources, EAT has developed an entire line of Turntables that have won hearts, accolades and a loyal fan following across the globe.
