Product Description

The Trichord 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.

The New Dino Mk3

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.

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.

Two main items are required for operation – the Dino Mk3 phono stage itself and an accompanying power supply.

Start with the basic ac Toroidal Power Supply and work your way up in performance by upgrading to the ‘Dino+’ dc power supply, and ultimately to the ‘Never Connected’ dc power supply. An upgrade from the ‘Dino+’ to the ‘Never Connected’ is also possible by returning your unit to us to upgrade the electronics.

To further enhance the sonic performance of these dc power units an upgrade ‘High Performance Power Lead’ is available to replace the supplied dc power lead.
