Boasting Technology Taken Directly from EAT's C-Major Turntable
The European Audio Team (EAT) designed its innovative B-Sharp turntable with engineered cues taken directly from the company’s award-winning and highly acclaimed C-Major turntable. For audiophiles looking for a more affordable alternative to the C-Major, the B-Sharp is the European Audio Team's answer!
The B-Sharp sheds all of the non-essential cosmetic adornments of the C-Major without compromising performance or mechanical integrity. This winning 'table provides vinyl enthusiasts with a superb playback option at a way lower than expected price for the level of features and performance that the B-Sharp offers.
The B-Sharp comes equipped with a factory installed Ortofon 2M Blue Cartridge, hinged dustcover, low mass aluminum record clamp, and a felt platter mat.
Brand New B-Note Tonearm
The B-Sharp turntable features the new B-Note tonearm, made from a carbon fiber alloy that is light yet rigid and has a black anodized aluminum head shell. The B-Note tonearm provides all of the key features for cartridge alignment and adjustability: VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle), SRA (Stylus Rake Angle), VTF (Vertical Tracking Force), azimuth, and a slotted headshell for overhang / offset angle. The anti-skate mechanism has been engineered for intuitive calibration, making setup of the B-Sharp notably easier than competitive products.
Proprietary Low Noise Motor
A proprietary low noise motor, floating chassis, aluminum platter and a high-density MDF low profile base are included as standard features of the B-Sharp. Like the C-Major, the B-Sharp uses a high-tech TPE (thermoplastic elastomers) suspension system that works in concert with adjustable feet that provide levelling ability for the table.
Comes with Ortofon 2M Blue Cartridge
The B-Sharp comes with a factory installed Ortofon 2M Blue moving magnet cartridge. Ortofon's 2M features a new, improved engine that provides an increased output of 5.5mV, an optimized sound reproduction, and a high level of sonic accuracy. The 2M Blue adds more dynamics and resolution, sounds more open and reproduces more details than its highly popular 'little brother,' the bestselling 2M Red cartridge.
The 2M Blue Nude boasts an elliptical diamond stylus and split pole pins with a copper wire. Split pole pins are an invention that enables moving magnet cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a much higher-priced moving coil cartridge. Split pole pins were invented by Ortofon, and were originally presented in the 500 series and Super OM series.
"With the 2M Blue ...you get the audiophile treatment: a full-range, highly resolving presentation that sounds neither stiff nor unforgiving," raves Mark Mickelson atThe Audio Beat. "In fact, the 2M Blue's balance, both tonally and in terms of overall resolution, may be its greatest feat. It's an easy cartridge to listen to…"
An Affordable High Level of Performance
The B-Sharp delivers a level of performance commensurate with turntables at a significantly higher price Point. The B-Sharp will bring joy and lasting satisfaction to music aficionados everywhere. Factoring in the new tonearm, the easy-to-use anti-skate and the ready-to-play nature of the B-Sharp, this product will become an instant classic.

I bought this 'table based on a friend's recommendation. Actually, he didnt tell me to get this one, he told me to call Audio Advisor salesman, Tim, and ask him what to buy. I told Tim my budget was over $1,000 but no more than $2,000 and he zeroed in on the EAT right away. I don't have a lot of experience with expensive turntables - my last one was an old Thorens - but I'm amazed how far the technology has come. This 'table offers amazing construction. It's built solid as a rock. And it sounds amazing. Even my old LPs which I assumed were destined for the junk pile sound amazing. They are quieter than I remember they sounded and sound richer and fuller. I can now hear what all the fuss about 'analog' sound is about. Thanks, Tim!

|Words Cannot Explain ...|
Words cannot explain how happy I am with my new EAT B Sharp turntable. First off, it’s a beautiful turntable that looks fantastic on top of my audio rack. Pictures just cant do the tonearm justice - its very high-tech looking and, at the same time, has a jewel-like finish. The turntable came 90% assembled. I had it playing LPs in a few minutes. The sound is completely amazing and way better than the Rega RP-2 it replaced. LP background noise has dropped below a whisper. Bass is thunderous and explosive. The decay in high frequncey instruments seems to go on forever. This is an excellent, excellent product. I am now in analog heaven!

|Beautiful Turntable with Sound to Match|
Beautiful! This table has exquisite sound to match it's good looks. The Ortofon 2M Blue phono cartridge was already installed. It levels out beautifully and in no time I was listening to vinyl like I've never heard before. The highs are crisp and presence is felt all around. I have a tube box S phono preamp from Pro Ject and it compliments the B Sharp extremely well. In my honest opinion, this may be the last turntable I ever buy!

|I did my research and ...|
Did a lot of research before I got this turntable, and am very happy with it. Set up went pretty smoothly the cartridge was already mounted. The table itself is great looking, and getting it with the Ortofon cartridge is what really sold me on this model. I had a minor question about a part, and the Audio Advisor support person got back to me with email right away. A quality product at a great price.

This was my third turntable in as many months and my search is over. I'm keeping this one. First I tried a less expensive $400 Teac which seemed cheaply made, then a $1,000 Thorens which quit after five days. This one seems far better made that the other two. Made in the Czech Republic - which I like. Honestly, if this was made by Thorens - a Swiss/German company - it would cost at least $3,000. This one comes with a fantastic Ortofon cartridge that is apparently made exclusively for EAT and it delivers amazing sound - detail, dynamics, finesse - on both old and new vinyl. Using with a Vincent tube phonostage, McIntosh amp and B&W 803 loudspeakers. Very pleased by this purchase.

|Wonderful 'Table and Great Sound|
This is a wonderful turntable for the money !! If you price out the cartridge, metal clamp, and the amazing tonearm, they alone could cost more then the entire package. A really great value. Wonderful folks to deal with. Shipped the unit out very fast !!!
