(Lake Grove, NY) September 17th, 2018 – VANA, Ltd., the North American distributor for fine audio products has announced the arrival of the European Audio Team (E.A.T https://vanaltd.com/collections/eat ) Jo N05 moving coil cartridge, the LPS dual linear power supply and the 800-gram Massive Weight. All three components have been engineered to help vinyl enthusiasts truly elevate the performance of their turntable.
The Jo N05 moving coil cartridge, acclaimed in recent reviews, is an ideal choice packaged with any high-performance turntable or as an upgrade or replacement cartridge. A proprietary design from E.A.T., the Jo N05 cartridge body (and stylus guard) are constructed of polyamide and are produced via an advanced manufacturing process called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). This process results in a final structure that is virtually resonance-free and thus ideal for a phono cartridge assembly. The result is a very detailed, low distortion, natural and immersive musical presentation—the tonal signature that E.A.T. was targeting for this exceptional product. The Jo N05 features a nude stylus configuration. The E.A.T. Jo N05 moving coil cartridge is available now in an attractive limited edition Walnut demo box with an MSRP of $1395. Cartridge alone is MSRP $1295 and available in specially priced packages with E.A.T. turntables.
The E.A.T. LPS is a single chassis solution offering dual voltage DC outputs for providing clean, stable power to many E.A.T. turntable models as well as the E-Glo S phono preamp. The LPS can simultaneously deliver both 15-volts and 18-volts via the 2.1mm, XLR 4-Pin, and 2.5mm cables that are included with the LPS. High quality bridge rectification is employed along with ultra-fast diodes and an 8800uF filtration bank to eliminate unwanted noise, and the LPS employs a fully discrete internal voltage regulator. This design results in very low noise and superior regulation, eliminating any chance of RFI interference reaching the audio path. The LPS increases speed stability on a turntable and lowers the noise floor on a phono preamp, supplying a smoother, more dynamic sound. The E.A.T. LPS is available now with either Macassar or Gloss Black end caps at an MSRP of $1295. The LPS is available in a packaged combo with the $2995 E-Glo S phono preamp at an astonishing MSRP of $3795, a savings of $495.
The 800-gram EAT Massive Record Weight delivers improved clarity at all frequencies and enhanced imaging characteristics. The E.A.T. Massive Weight is constructed from an alloy that resists unwanted resonances. The Massive Weight uses three rings of polymer compound, including where it makes contact with the LP record, similar to that deployed by E.A.T. in their turntable suspensions. The E.A.T. Massive Weight is available now with an MSRP of $195.
