Rigorous testing and high specification standards make European Audio Team vacuum tubes the premier brand available today.

Jozefina Lichtenegger

Jozefina Lichtenegger got her introduction to vacuum tubes in the late 1990s while working as the representative for VAIC vacuum tubes in the western world.   Alesa Vaic is Jozefina’s sister-in-law and was the proprietor of VAIC, which was at the time considered to be one of the most revered and sought after brands available.

After VAIC ceased operations, Jozefina decided to carry on VAIC’s mission herself with her EAT brand.  Today, European Audio Team manufactures the finest KT88 vacuum tubes available using the manufacturing equipment previously in the Tesla Vrsovice factory, and they also test, measure, and select other popular vacuum tube varieties from among the very best that Eastern Europe has to offer and gives those few special vacuum tubes the EAT brand name.

This testing and selection process takes place using the most sophisticated equipment and methods in the industry, ensuring that vacuum tubes with the EAT brand on them will consistently perform to very exacting standards.

All EAT small signal tubes come with EAT’s Cool Damper attached to them.  The Cool Valve Damper is also available separately and is the best product on the market today for the regulation of vacuum tube temperature and the control of resonant energies that would negatively affect the operation of the vacuum tube.

Because of the requirements and specifications that must be met, EAT small signal tubes are sometimes in short supply.  Because of this, they are not listed in our Online Store.  To purchase any EAT vacuum tube variety, email us or call us at 573-696-3551.

EAT ECC88 Cool Valve

The EAT ECC88 is a special quality double triode
that satisfies the specifications in accordance with
MIL-E-1/1J168 (NAVY) from 18.6.1958.

The tolerances used for electrical ratings of these
tubes are extremely narrow in comparison with
standard tubes.

The EAT ECC88 will withstand accelerations of 2.5g
at 50Hz for extended exposure periods as well as
momentary shocks of 500g.

The cathode of the EAT ECC88 establishes no
interface even in cases where the heated tube is
operated without plate current over extended periods
of time.

Substitutes: E88CC, E88CC, 6DJ8, 7DJ8, 6922

Available in matched pairs and sets.

Retail Price:  $225.00 Each

EAT Cool Damper Vacuum Tube Damper

 
Cool Damper in Black
 
Cool Damper in Red

The EAT Cool Damper device is a highly effective vibration absorbing and dissipating damper. The resulting benefit is reduced distortion from the tube circuit, as well as vastly reduced tendencies for the vacuum tube to operate in a microphonic manner. This improves sound quality with respect to providing more controlled and deeper bass, a cleaner sound stage, crisper and greater dynamic range, and better focus of the entire sound field.

The Cool Damper also reduces the operating temperature of the glass envelope of a vacuum tube by about 10%, which can appreciably extend the lifetime of the tube.

The Cool Damper is a consumer friendly product that is easy to install, and fabulously simple in design. 

The Cool Damper is constructed of soft aluminum extrusion that has been coated with a special blended mix of Teflon and carbon composite PTFE. The Cool Dampers are finished with long-lasting anodic oxidation colors.

For flexible and easy use, the EAT Cool Damper uses six special carbon-Teflon composite V- profile strips that are adjustable and configurable to fit individual tube glass envelopes.

The EAT Cool Damper fits the following vacuum tube varieties:

12AT7: ECC81, 6201, E81CC, ECC801, B309, 6060, 6679, 7728, CV455, CV2016, CV8154, 12AU7: ECC82, E82CC, 6067, B339, 5814, 6189, 6680, 7730, CV491, CV8155, 12AX7: ECC83, E83CC, ECC803, 7025, 5751, 7058, 7729, 6681, CV492, CV8156, 6DJ8, ECC88, E88CC, 6922, EL84, EF86 and many others.
