  • E.A.T. E-Flat Turntable review by HighStyle This turntable is colorfully and aesthetically full of contrasts, even in construction. Heavy plate and heavy chassis (High Mass) as opposed to a light unipivot shoulder creates a harmony for the eye, but also for the ear… Its performance/price ratio really makes a unique product. It feels that its character and the quality of the sound looks up to the heights of the High-End category at it's brother E.A.T. Forte.
  • E.A.T. Jo N° 5 review by Positive Feedback The E.A.T. Jo N° 5 MC Cartridge is the best overall performing MC cartridge I have heard in a long time, and the current "price/performance value" of the decade.
  • E.A.T. Jo N° 5 review by AnalogPlanet The N° 5 manages to be both rich sounding and exciting. Never snooze-inducing or "soft".
  • E.A.T. C-Major, E-Glo and Jo N° 5 review by HomeTheaterHifi.com I very much enjoyed my experience with the E.A.T GEAR. It is well made, sounds great – having excellent clarity, detail, and dynamics – and the three-part package is a good value.
