        Product description

        The Bearing

        The bearing is not standard but inverted with an oversized polished shaft. The new platter with its huge mass creates more energy, which has to be absorbed better. Therefore we designed a new bearing block with a chrome alloy able to withstand more energy and damp the entire system more effectively. In addition the bearing spindle has a new "Movic" coating with the lowest friction coefficient possible (6 times less than previous spindle versions). This is the same coating that is used by NASA for bearings in satellites.

        A ceramic ball is used on the top because it is very hard and inert. This, in combination with a Teflon plate as a bearing mirror, is also a good damping device. Teflon's accurate satin surface produces perfectly smooth movement without any rumble. The platter has a magnetic suspension using neodymium magnets. By increasing the distance from the bearing to the cartridge, the small neodymium magnets eliminate magnetic infl uence on the cartridge. Due to the magnets we can still move a large mass allowing the bearing to see virtually no pressure. This avoids rumble. (A mass loaded platter usually causes high levels of rumble.) The pressure of the bearing is adjustable. There are different philosophies about the bearing pressure. With the Forte turntable you can adjust it according your preferences and taste..

        The Motor

        (applies only to Fortissimo motor, not Fortissimo S motor!)
        The motor is a stand-alone, decoupled AC unit. It uses a sophisticated electronic circuit to create 100% clean AC. It is very heavy motor with lot of mass to reduce all the existing vibrations. Motor energy is absorbed by using a sandwich system of metal and MDF. We decided to use a "dual motor design" to eliminate noise in the motor. By using two relatively weak, but silent running motors, we achieve perfect torque.

        The Belt

        Long belts usually have some amount of wobble. To avoid this we use a special silicon string. This movement is also absorbed by the bearing block and by the huge mass of the platter itself.

        The F-Note Tonearm

        (optionally available)
        The F-Note Tonearm is a new E.A.T tonearm design that mixes a high mass tonearm with a low-friction bearing. Due to the high mass these tonearm usually have to use a bearing that is a little bit "slower". The F-Note goes a different way and innovates on a new level. The tonearm is very easy to set up and also a perfect match for the new Jo No. 8 cartridge.

        The Fortissimo Base

        (optionally available)
        The optionally available Fortissimo Base has been purpose designed for the new Fortissimo turntable. It acts as a perfect subchassis, isolating the turntable in the best possible manner. This design improves on the magnetic feet found in previous turntables, and makes it more silent and less prone to outside interference. The feet have been redesigned and the base uses 6 new magnetic feet, to accomodate the size and weight of the Fortissimo turntable.
