Since around 1990, Bang and Olufsen fitted built-in RIAA pre-amplifier modules to all of their Beogram range of record players, to allow them to be used with their newer audio systems.  However, a large number of their earlier turntables are still in use which do not have these amplifiers fitted.  Anyone wishing to use a pre-1990 Beogram turntable with a modern B&O system would need to buy an external RIAA per-amplifier, as the B&O modules are no longer available.

The Sounds Heavenly eBay shop have developed a kit which combines a mains-powered RIAA pre-amplifier with all the necessary cables and convertors to connect an early Beogram turntable to a modern B&O system.  These are required for most Beogram turntables, including those listed below:-

Please note that some examples of the turntables listed above may have previously been fitted with an internal pre-amplifier by B&O.  However, this is a rare occurence, so if you have a model listed above, if is likely to require an external pre-amplifier before it can be used with a modern B&O audio system.
