From the outset, E.A.T. has ensured that its turntables can accept a wide range of tonearms. With the E-Flat, however, the designers reaffirmed the long-held belief that a turntable/arm combination designed to work together can eliminate a host of matching problems, while ensuring superior performance. To increase the choice of available tonearms, and to add to its catalogue one of the finest cartridge-carrying devices available, E.A.T. has joined forces with tonearm wizard Bob Graham to develop the E-Go, short for "EuroAudioTeam – Graham Original".
Based on the Graham Phantom II SUPREME, new design of Phantom III and using the new materials found in Elite but personalised for E.A.T applications, the E-Go offers owners of E.A.T. turntables the opportunity to employ an arm possessing unparalleled grace, finesse and precision. Evolved from the acclaimed Phantom, it features new internal wiring for better detail retrieval and improved freedom from any mechanical resistance, an upgraded pivot design for even greater dynamics, and a new titanium arm-wand.
Of primary importance is Magneglide(tm), which transforms and optimises unipivot tonearm behaviour. Magneglide(tm) is a patented magnetic stabilisation system in which lateral stability and a portion of the damping are provided by powerful neodymium ("rare-earth") magnets, placed in a horizontal line from the pivot point of the tonearm.
As an added bonus, the Magneglide(tm) system also permits the application of anti-skate through the magnetic coupling of the design, thereby eliminating ANY direct contact or possible resonance to affect the main pivot assembly of the tonearm. The anti-skate system is easily adjusted either by a thumb-wheel rotation or sliding motion of the bias weight for minute adjustments, from near-zero force to >3g.
Enthusiasts with a selection of cartridges for different purposes will relish the E-Go’s ease-of-set-up. The arm tube is interchangeable and easily removable, so users can pre-mount cartridges on spare arm tubes. Thanks to a patented alignment system, it offers the safety, convenience and accuracy of cartridge installation and alignment away from the turntable, enabling quick interchange of multiple pre-mounted cartridges. Its counterweight accommodates a wide range of cartridge weights.
E.A.T.’s E-Go is a tonearm that extracts the ultimate performance from any cartridge it asked to accommodate. E.A.T. will offer the E-Go to existing owners of E.A.T. turntables, as a pre-fitted arm for future customers of E.A.T. turntables, or to any connoisseur of superlative sound, with a turntable that can accept a 12in arm.
