So, here I am again asking basic types of questions.

 

I am using a Beosystem 2300 with a set of Beolab 2500 speakers- I have a Beogram 5500 turntable and pluged it into the same AUX where I have plugged my ipod cable adapter--I am not hearing the records--What am I missing other than you ight not be able to use a turntable with the 2300 which I would find unlikely.

 

Thanks,

 

 

Jonathan

Hi

The 2400 and the 5500 decks are 7 pin Din's-- what else do I need to get?

The 7 pin din plugs has 2 pins screwed into the plug, take a close look and you will see that you can screw them out with a small screw driver, then you can connect them to the preamp using this one if the 4004 has RCA you can connect that one directly to the preamp.

If you take out the pins, tape them to the plug or the cable, not to loose them or store them where you forgot where, I have been looking for mine for 3 weeks now.

You will need the 5 pin DIN female to 2 x RCA male, they are scare in the US but multi in the UK, but wait a little maybe another member has an answer. Or surf for it

Are you proficient with soldering? If so I may have a plug for you. I will have to dig around and get back to you.

EDIT: Oh wait, that's a female conn. Definitely don't have one of those.

Ok got the preamp as you recco for using a beogram with my bs2300--I know I need a 5din with rca plugs- going to order from b/o guy who advertises here--so I need more than the one as I will attach one to the turntable and than do I need one for the BS 2300? I did find a shortish 5 din on each end cable---any use here for that?
