Trichord Research Dino Mk3 Phono Stage

Whether you have an ultra-low output Moving Coil cartridge or a high output Moving Magnet the Dino Mk2 will cope easily. A set of user friendly switches on the base of the unit allows you to simply adjust load and gain settings.

These settings are vital to match the amplifier to the cartridge and obtain the best sonic result. If your current phono stage only has a couple of options for this function, eg a MM/MC switch, then you are missing out on the ability to tune your system to it’s optimum.

An entire upgrade path exists for this product which allows you to improve performance each step of the way.

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.
