Phono Preamp TRICHORD Dino MK II & Dino +.

The Dino Mk II (together 800 euros) with slightly sharper location, subtly more articulation, as well as more comprehensive overview in complex passages is thanked for the connection of the power supply Dino +.

  1. Phono preamp TRICHORD Dino MK II & Dino +.
  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. The Dino + then offers a more powerful 85-VA toroidal transformer and integrated control (LM 317, LM 337).
For the connection of the power supply Dino + thanked the Dino Mk II with slightly sharper location, subtly more articulation, as well as more comprehensive overview in complex passages and reached the same level as the audio lab with the MC reference pickup 8000 PPA. That sounded while with MM Abbot asters somewhat slimmer and körperloser as the Dino Mk II, with MC but the audio lab had a little more power, what compensated for the Englishwoman spatial presentation, which is slightly larger.

Review
Short conclusion The connection of the power supply Dino + on the variable Dino Mk II enables a still check later bass, as well as a more accurate positioning of the instruments playing simultaneously in broader areas.
