  1. Phono preamp TRICHORD Dino MK II + NC
  2. Data sheet

Externally, the MK II version with its predecessor (6/05) the Dino has much in common. So the acrylic case shines here too, and two dip switches for each channel there are still on the bottom, quite fine to change the gain, as well as the input values. Inside however, the English have changed much. So there now in the signal path, until on the passive equalization, no further coupling capacitors, DC voltages occurring additional OPs away rules.
The input devices are now of THAT (1510). Allow same wiring as the previously used SSM 2019 by analog devices, are but according to the British sound better. Is the fan will discover the expensive Mundorf film capacitors for equalization, located between the first and second stage of the amplifier. It is built with small, very pulse fast AD 825 OPs.
Despite costly internal voltage regulation, TRICHORD in addition to the external standard-40-VA toroidal transformer offers two more, charged power supplies. Among other things the Dino + NC. Here, the English of less on Earth put as to class, as it here while a smaller transformer is but a significantly more expensive, discrete stabilization, which has strong transistors faster pulse as well as low noise.
Most impressive, the Dino Mk sound II with exactly this PSU Dino + NC. Because this amount of fine information, this spatial representation, a performance by such jumping to living as also punchy knew the tester only by much more expensive phono stages. So she could offer even the Clearaudio balance + (12/08) Paroli. That gave itself but more direct and solid, but the TRICHORD enchanted with more natural voices, more varied details, and more musical River. Now, the testers realised why the addition of NC is written with English humor ‘Never Connected’. Because once connected you want probably don’t even give them.

Review
Short conclusion With the PSU Dino + NC, Dino Mk grows beyond II about themselves. There’s so much subtlety, musical expression and naturalness only for significantly more money, so this combination is a stereoplay highlight.
