Trichord Diablo Phono Stage with in-line Toroidal PSU Silver

The Trichord Diablo is an audiophile grade phono amplifier that supplements ultimate transparency and realism. This in-line Toroidal PSU comes with a wide range of high performance phono cartridges. From ultra-low output moving coils to high output moving magnets, the Trichord Diablo runs efficiently.

This phono stage accepts a variety of MM and MC cartridges with adjustments for amplifier gain and cartridge loading on the underside of the unit. The four high-speed, low-noise voltage regulators within the Diablo are known to turn into a dual mono design in a box. With the non-ferrous cabinet made of aluminium, it helps with the reduction of eddy current propagation that can affect sound reproduction.

RIAA equalization network is part passive and part active, and the capacitors and resistors of this inline Torodial PSU are close tolerance audiophile types. The Diablo’s circuitry has been constructed using audio grade bipolar and JEFT operational amplifiers from Analog Devices and Linear Technology.

The Diablo’s power supply of 230V is provided via a UK or European mains plug, and 115V with a USA style mains plug. The Trichord phono stage works with AC supply or DC supply with two independent supplies of 0v / 18v ac, 0v / 18v ac and 0v /-22vdc , 0v / +22vdc respectively.

The switches on the Diablo allow for adjustment of cartridge setting and gain setting. The NCPSU (Never Connected Power Supply Unit) for Trichord Diablo uses completely different electronics than any conventional DC power supply. Reduction of mains borne noise is powerful, making the device give its best.

  • 230V power supply through UK and EU mains, 115V via US mains
  • Switch between cartridge and gain settings easily
