E.A.T. has joined forces with tonearm wizard Bob Graham to develop the E-Go, a tonearm that extracts the ultimate performance from any cartridge it asked to accommodate.
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, 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.
