Greetings mates,


I seek clarity, i tried connecting my beogram 5500 turn table to the line in inputs of the A9 (mk2). To my surprise the volume is super low and cant get much of a clear signal even if the volume was set to max. Do i need a phono preamp or? I was under the impression that the 5500 turntable has a in built phono preamp? I'd appreciate all the assistance & guidance.

You'll need a phono RIAA pre-amp for the BG5500 - it doesn't have one built in.

As Guy mentioned, the A9 doesn’t have a pre-amp, so you will need this pre-amp kit to connect the Beogram, which comes with all cables needed and full instructions, ready to “plug and play”:- – please choose the “Twin RCA plugs” output option for your A9 mk.2 with red and white RCA input sockets.

Kind regards, Steve.
