EAT C-Ma­jor

ONE FOR THE AUDIOPHILE

Australian T3 - - VINY REVIVAL - ROB CAR­NEY, EDI­TOR-IN-CHIEF

The C-Ma­jor is the lat­est deck from EAT (Euro­pean Au­dio Team), and is also the com­pany’s least costly de­sign at $2,799 (in­clud­ing the match­ing C-Note ton­earm). It fol­lows in the foot­steps of the com­pany’s widely ac­claimed C-Sharp deck ($3,999), but at a price that vinyl new­bies won’t scoff at (too much, at least).

It fea­tures a high-mass alu­minium plat­ter and a sub-chas­sis con­structed from a sand­wich of car­bon fi­bre and MDF. The sub-chas­sis is sep­a­rated from the main chas­sis via ther­mo­plas­tic elas­tomer col­umns to iso­late from vi­bra­tion, and the ton­earm tube is also fash­ioned from car­bon fi­bre for its rigid­ity and ex­cel­lent strength-to-weight ra­tio.

EAT man­u­fac­tur­ers in the same fac­tory as Pro-Ject (see over), which hap­pens to be the world’s largest spe­cial­ist turntable man­u­fac­turer. $2,799, au­dioac­tive.com.au

The C-Ma­jor is EAT’s cheap­est turntable, but it still looks su­per-stylish
