I am quite new to all of this so apologies in advance for my ignorance. 

I have recently purchased a Beomaster 3300 with a phonograph.

The 3300 appears to be in great working order, the only issue I am having that although the phonograph does work it is incredibly quiet through the speakers. I have to have the 3300 volume on '80' just to hear it. 

Does anyone know why this may be? 


Thank you in advance.

Are you plugging the turntable into the "phono" socket on the amplifier?

Hi thanks for the response. 

Yes there are 3 sockets on the back of the be03300 im plugging it into the socket marked PH. 

There is sound coming through the speakers but I have to have the volume on full.

Sounds like the RIAA preamp is missing in your BM3300. And that`s it what Graham is thinking too, I guess...

Are all other sources, RADIO, CD...working properly?

Is it possible to control the BG33000 via remote?

Does your BG sound the same if you plug it to let`s say A.TAPE?

What happens, when your system is in standby mode and you press start on your BG?

Usually BS3300 has a RIAA preamp built into the BM3300, BG3300 does not have a RIAA.

Systems like BS4500, 6500, 7000 got a RIAA built into the turntable (BG 4500, 6500, 7000..)

These systems have a PHONO socket without RIAA.

And your description let me think there is no RIAA at all..?

Thanks for all the advice, I had my mate come round with his turntable last night and we plugged it into the beomaster 3300. It worked fine so as far as I can tell the preamp is inbuilt and working fine. 

I tried plugging the Beograph into the CD and TP connections but it didn't work at all.

There is a b&o specialist in Newcastle I was going to give them a call at lunch, id love to get it working :)
