Trichord Dino Mk 3 Phono Stage

Sorry, This product is no longer available



The Trichord Dino Mk 3 sits graciously in place of the award-winning Dino Mk2, bringing with it a number of superlative alterations and upgrades to what was already an industry-leading product. The Trichord has been improved in sound quality and both aesthetic design and mechanical integrity. 

The Dino Mk 3 is a high-performance phono amplifier that offers an outstanding performance, rivalling similar models in much higher price categories. Noise levels have been reduced by 4.5dB which results in further precision to microdynamics, complete with crystal highs, pounchy mids and liquid-like bass. The circuitry has been redesigned with an improved ground layout, while the new analogue output stage utilises OPA827 op amps to further improve the unit's sound quality reproduction capability.

The Dino Mk 33 can be used with both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges, and DIP switches allow the gain and cartridge loading to be adjusted with ease. High quality PTFE gold plated phono connectors can be found to the rear of the unit. The Mk 3 is also compatibler with 

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.
