EAT E-Glo Tube Phono Stage
The E-Glo looks and performs like no other, a design so clever and attractive that owners will want to give it pride-of-place in their sound systems. After all, it complements the stunning Fort̩e, Fort̩e S, E-Flat, and C-Sharp turntables
E-Glo is an all-tube design completely free of semiconductors in its signal path. Its tube complement consists of the classic glassware beloved of audiophiles: four ECC83s and two ECC88s. The use of these valves will ensure that supplies of replacement tubes are always readily available, while experimentation is encouraged for those who love to fine-tune the sound of their systems by changing tubes.
The fully-balanced input stage is fitted with a Lundahl step-up transformer with an amorphous core, type LL1932. The unit's gain is 45db, plus the voltage gain of the step-up transformer. E-Glo's amplifier section uses split, fully passive equalization, without any equalization in a global negative feedback loop, which can harm the sound.
At this level of performance, only the best components will suffice. The choice of output capacitor is the highly-praised Mundorf. All other capacitors are WIMA. Mundorf Connectors with Teflon insulation have been chosen for their unparalleled integrity.
To ensure the utmost flexibility, and to ensure perfect matching to a wide range of cartridges, the E-Glo provides capacitance loading for moving-magnet types in six user-switchable steps from 47pf to 900pF.
Ensuring quiet operation is the use of an external power supply, connected to the E-Glo via a special 9-pin connector. Its heart is a custom-made toroid transformer. The transformer features double shielding between the primary and secondary windings. This avoids the intrusion of RFI, while acting as superior mains filter.
Separate power supplies feed the tube phono preamplifier because the best way to shield a mains transformer from electromagnetic radiation of is to distance it from the electronics. Metal shielding alone cannot perform the task as well as a separate power supply.
For the rectifying circuitry, EAT fitted special diodes with noise suppressing resistors. Also employed are high-quality electrolytic capacitors, followed by a voltage regulator with capacitor multiplier. The power component is a FET transistor.
A feast for the eyes, E-Glo is styled so that it's valves peer through clever design heat sinks that recall the two spools of a reel-to-reel tape deck. Across the front section are rows of switches for instant access to all settings, no need to get inside to set the E-Glo for your cartridge of choice.
E.A.T.'s E-Glo is a state-of-the-art phono stage able to extract the ultimate performance from any cartridge it asked to accommodate.
