    Phono Preamp Option

    This may be discussed elsewhere, but couldn't find it, so I'm posting this anyway. Stick out tongue

    I have a Beogram 3300, the wedge shaped turntable, connected to a Beosound 9000. There was always enough level difference it was annoying, plus having to use an old integrated amp for its phono preamp. Anyway, I got one of these:

    http://www.phonopreamps.com/TC-770LCpp.html

    This unit has a DIN connector on the back, so that you don't have to use an adaptor to go to RCA and ground wire. It also has a variable gain, I was easily able to up the gain on the table so it matched the Beosound CD and radio with just a touch of gain.

    So far I'm very happy with the sound, and the fact the levels are matched. I can recommend this as a good phono preamp for B&O tables. When I contacted the dealer, he directed me towards this when he heard I had a Beogram, for the reasons mentioned, DIN connector and the low gain of the B&O cartridges.

    Good product, seems solidly made, and solves a number of problems.

    I have been using a TC750LC from the same company for 2 or 3 years now and have been more than happy with it.

    All their business is done over the net .

    I can recommend the company and its products.

    Re: Phono Preamp Option

    I've been using the 750 for 5 years now, no problems what so ever, and shipping and handling from the company is first class.

    Some audiophiles tested this preamp and gave it good critics, compareable with preamps in the 4/500 USD class.

    Beosound 3000, BL 4000, BL 8000, BG 2404,BG 5000, BG CD50, Beocord 5000, BM 901, BM 2400, BM 4000, BV S45, BV 3702. There is nothing we cannot do, but a lot of things we don't want to do!!

    Re: Phono Preamp Option

    Here is a Danish company making drop-in replacements for the original RIAA amplifier (and better components now), and of course it can be used to put an RIAA amp in those turntables which never had one before.
