-TRICHORD DINO MK2 PHONO STAGE inc DINO+ PSU


The Trichord Research Dino Mk2 Phono Stage with Dino+ PSU is a high performance phono amplifier and power supply unit, designed for transparency and realism. It will maximise the performance of a wide range of quality cartridges from ultra-low output Moving Coils to high output Moving Magnet types.

The Trichord Dino Mk2 Phono Stage is user adjustable with a set of four DIP switches on the underside of the unit for ease of access. These switches allow for adjustment of cartridge loading and gain setting. The circuitry is signal non-inverting and constructed using high performance, audio grade bipolar and JFET operational amplifiers, metal oxide resistors and ultra low impedance capacitors throughout for lowest possible noise.

The RIAA equalisation network is fully passive and located between two active gain stages. The capacitors and resistors used in this stage are very close tolerance audiophile types. Two state of the art ultra low impedance, low noise wide-band voltage regulators are employed to power both channels and are largely responsible for the high sonic performance of the Dino

The Trichord Research 'Dino +' Power Supply unit comprises of two completely independent and isolated dc supply circuits. One for the positive voltage rail and one for the negative, the specially made low noise audio 80VA toroidal transformer is followed by two bridge rectifiers built with ultra fast soft recovery diodes for low RF generation. The bridges are followed by RC/RC filtering comprising of 4 x 1800uF capacitors before conventional 3 pin voltage regulators. This level of filtering and regulation provides very low noise power supply lines before entering the main amplifier unit.

The power supply to the Dino phono amplifier is further regulated by two on board ultra low noise wide bandwidth voltage regulation circuits - one positive and one negative rail. These rails are shared by both channels.
