Trichord Research Dino Mk3 replaces the award-winning Dino Mk2, and makes some impressive changes to an already class-leading design. Unlike some manufacturers Trichord do not believe in releasing new models for the sake of it - the Dino Mk3 makes some very worthwhile improvements both aesthetically and sonically.
The Dino Mk3 is a high performance phono amplifier which at an affordable price gives you tremendous value. Designed for transparency and realism, this superb sounding amplifier is based on the fore-running Dino Mk1 and Dino Mk2 phono stages which have won many awards and accolades along the way.
Dino Mk3 Improvements
Trichord have reduced noise levels by 4.5dB resulting in more impactful dynamics, sharper detail and inky black silences. The circuit board has been redesigned and has an improved ground layout, while a new analogue output stage uses OPA827 op amps to greatly improve sound quality.
Adjustable Cartridge Settings
Just like before, the Dino Mk3 is compatible with MM and MC cartridges, and gain and cartridge loading is adjustible by easily accessible DIP switches. The Dino Mk3 features high quality PTFE gold plated phono connectors on the rear panel and is fully compatible with all previous power supplies.
Power Supply Options
The Dino Mk3 includes a basic Toroidal power supply. You can upgrade this (either now with your order for the Dino Mk3) with either the Dino+ power supply upgrade, or ultimately the Never Connected power supply upgrade.
If you choose Dino+, an upgrade from this to Never Connected is available later by returning your Dino+ to us to have the electronics upgraded, however it will cost you more overall than ordering the Dino Mk3 with the Never Connected power supply together first.
Additional Cable Upgrade
Each of these power supply upgrades include a standard interconnecting cable to connect your Dino Mk3 to the power supply. To further enhance the sonic performance of these upgrade power supplies, an upgrade High Performance Power Lead is available to replace the standard cable.
