In a Class By Itself"
"The EAT C-Major is a very serious turntables in its not too crowded price range," raves Germany's LP Magazine. "The drive and chassis are very good and the tonearm is in a class by itself."
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.
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 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!

Optional Ortofon Quintet Blue Cartridge
Shipped complete with fitted dust cover, and offered in a specially-priced package with the Ortofon Quintet Blue MC moving coil phono cartridge, the C-Major will extract the best from your favorite vinyl LP. C-Major represents a blast from the past that just happens to also be the future of music enjoyment, too.
The Ortofon Quintet Blue is a very homogenous phono cartridge with a sound quality tending toward smoother reproduction compared to Quintet Red plus moderate dynamic strength compared to Quintet Bronze. It features a Nude Elliptical diamond mounted on an aluminum cantilever.
The Quintet Blue will bring more space, depth and detail into the sound and is a very good choice for any kind of music, especially rhythmic.
In Hi-fi Choice magazine, Andrew Simpson says of the Quintet Blue, "It offers the most comprehensive and enjoyable performance with all music, showing Ortofon has clearly hit upon another magic formula... It presents all the detail in the track with real dynamism … Its soundstage is expansive left to right… and it also possesses a greater talent for bringing instruments within it to life."
