The aforementioned Beogram 3000 is actually a Thorens 124 MkII with a B&O arm - usually 9" but can be 12" and fitted with an SP2 cartridge - I have the 12" version. Completely different to the other Beograms except for the arm - more extended bass and nothing like the same suspension. An audiophile deck and rare - in the UK B&O actually sold a different 3000 - based on an Acoustical motor unit - I had one of those as well - not as good but similar. Lee and I have ones which have been restored by Frede at Classic Audio who specialises in restoring classic B&O but also the Thorens 124.

However you will either have to use old B&O cartridges (mine is a bespoke one) or change arm. There is quite a bit to be said for the Rega tables - very simple and can use any 1/2" mount cartridge. I would not go for the later tangential models as the build will disappoint - a 4000 would be ridiculously cool though!

Rega planar 3 with pre amp

I agree.  I bought my Rega about 10 years ago and have had no problems.  I think it is a simple design that has an elegant but modern look.  Buy the packaged deal that comes with  the Rega P3, Elys 2 cartridge, and RB330 tonearm.  You will need to buy the phono preamp separately.  A good choice to start might be the Rega A2D which has a feature that allows an LP to be ripped for playback digitally.  Its made in England also.

I have had a Beogram 7000 which was nice and looked great but the Rega sounds much better and can be upgraded if you wish to do so.  The price in the UK is probably £550.00 for the turntable package and about £90.00 for the phono preamp.  The Project turntable is very good also.

If you want a lower price point, you might look at the Rega P2 which is available on Amazon.

Moment and Beogram work (and looks) good together. This is a Beogram 2200.

So Hiort, you just took Powerlink out from Beogram and plugged into cinch Line-in of the Moment? Or there needs to be a preamp in between?

Its not Powerlink from Beogram.

It’s just din connection.

And yes, I have an RIAA preamp from Soundsheavenly in between that also provided the adapter from din (from Beogram) to phono (on preamp).

Thanks for clarification. Hmm, I was thinking about the simplest way to play records via Moment - that means that I need to choose a turntable with preamp built-in (regardless whether it will be Beogram in the end or some modern turntable).

Its really not that difficult with a preamp in between.

It just sits there and I have concealed behind the sideboard where I have my Moment and my turntable.

I do not play vinyl that often, so I have a hidden powerswitch that switches on the light above the turntable as well as the preamp when I use it (as you can see in the picture in my earlier post). Works well Smile 

A sweet thing, since the Moment is integrated with my BV11, is that when Moment senses the signal from the Beogram, BV11 lights up and display "Beogram 2200" as source on the TV screen. Not necessary. Just cool  Big Smile

I have a BG4002 with a restored 20CL on it and it is very good, but they are old and prone to mechanical problems due to their complexity. I also have a Linn Sondek LP12 with an Audio Technica auto lift and Shure cartridge and that is superb. More work in setting up initially but excellent results. Looks wise and ease of use the BG4002 wins but sound quality the Linn to my ears and in my setup is better, with the autolift is a welcome mod. I use the Linn everyday as most of my listening is on vinyl.

If someone is interested , I have a BG7000 in mint condition which comes with a new refurbished MMC2 needle from FJS.

The table gets a complete overhaul before it leaves.

I use a White BG6500 in combination with my Moment. That works very well.
