      Hi, I have a Beogram 5500 which I’ve connected to my B&O Stage through the line in. I get an awful buzzing when anything is playing.

      setup is Beogram 5pin to rca line in on a pre amp

      line out rca to 3.5mm jack which goes to the stage.

      any suggestions as it’s driving me crazy.

      thanks in advance

      Steven

        You mention a preamp but don’t mention which one and whether you are using the proper Phone DIN cable to it. This cable has double screening and is a requirement to prevent hum and buzz.

          this is the amp:

          any help / advice would be greatly appreciated

            I think you need a cable with a proper earthing from the turntable.  The connector you’ve bought won’t have this.

            You can get one at Sounds Heavenly.  Or, Beocable on eBay do one.

            I’d be interested how you get on as I’m intending to connect my Beogram 3300 to an amp using the Pro-ject phono box with the Beocable connector.  I’m just waiting to buy an MMC4 cartridge.

              If you have the original phono DIN cable marked with a PH then B&O used to have DIN->RCA adaptor that had an external ground wire which is needed. If you can find that then a special internally grounded one such as https://soundsheavenly.com/beogram-record-players/14-2244-beogram-to-non-bo-device-as-used-on-beogram-4000c-phono-pre-amp-receiver-amplifier-etc-bo-ref-6271348.html#/2-length-1m/60-grounding-internal_ground_link will work.
