    Default Trichord DIno

    With or without 'upgraded' power supply, I'm guessing it doesn't make a blind bit of difference, anyone tell me different? I got a G Slee era v jobbie, but Dino takes both mm and mc all in de one box, that's what I call music.

    I used to own a Trichord Dino with a Never Connected Power Supply and upgraded umbilical chord. Superb Phonostage and power supply which was only beaten by a vastly more expensive Phonostage.

    I used to have the Diablo with NCPSU and upgraded cable, the ncps does make a significant improvement! Very fine phono stage but I now use and prefer the Puresound P10 and T10.

    I'm afraid that, in this case, the upgraded PSU does make a BIG difference.

    Hi-Fi's pretty cool, but music's betterer

    Are you talking about the Dino+ power supply compared to the supplied power supply or NCPS?
    I bought mine second hand with the Dino+, I realised one day that it was not working so bought a standard supply with the intention of getting the Dino+ fixed. I then realised it had blown the slow blow fuse so it was only used briefly. I could try some comparisons and get back to you with my findings or alternatively send me a PM and we could maybe arrange a loan of my DINO+

    Yep I had the Diablo and the NCPS, I'm afraid that I agree, it's a much better phonostage WITH the NCPS.

    I've had a Dino Mk1 & 2 with NCPSU and also a Mk2 with standard psu all excellent but the NCPSU was much, much better. Last week I won an auction for a Mk1 with Dino + and it's also excellent.
    Did you buy the Mk2 on eBay from someone in Brighton I did see that but knew I'd want the upgraded PSU to go with it so went with the Mk1. That was a good buy though at £185.
