Hi, I have recently purchased a Beogram 1202 in what appears to be good order. It has the usual B & O 5 pin din output, though I am hooking it up to a modern Yamaha amp. I purchased a female adaptor with 2 rca's and an earth output also. The problem I'm having is when its all hooked up and the earth is screwed into the ground point on the amp there is a fairly weak signal on one channel, one seems ok, and a really annoying hum. I disconnected the earth and it still hums badly.

Any help here would be most appreciated!

Sounds like a bad adapter. Get in touch with Steve at Sounds Heavenly for a new one.

Thanks Lee, will do. Do you know if the 1202 needs a pre amp before connecting to an amp? There are conflicting views on this I'm wondering if this might be part of the problem too?

The 1202 has no build in preamp, so if there is no preamp in your amplifier you will need a preamp
