Which Beogram turntables need an external pre-amplifier kit?

Since around 1990, Bang and Olufsen fitted built-in RIAA pre-amplifier modules to all of their Beogram range of record players, to allow them to be used with their newer audio systems. However, a large number of their earlier turntables are still in use which do not have these amplifiers fitted. Anyone wishing to use a pre-1990 Beogram turntable with a modern B&O system would need to buy an external RIAA per-amplifier, as the B&O modules are no longer available.

Sounds Heavenly have developed a Pre-Amplifier Kit which combines a mains-powered RIAA pre-amplifier with all the necessary cables and convertors to connect an early Beogram turntable to a modern B&O system. These are required for most Beogram turntables, including those listed below:-

However, this is a rare occurence, so if you have a model listed above, if is likely to require an external Phono Pre-Amplifier Kit before it can be used with a modern B&O audio system.
