Thanks for this review. I have considered the Dino but there are other choices, which makes choosing tough especially if you are not able to audition. So I would be more than happy for you to put the Dino up against something comparable from the Graham Slee range, in order to find out where one make was better or worse than the other.

Oddly enough, I’m forging links with Mr Slee right now. We’ll see what arises.

Hi. Great video. Love the details. I’d like to purchase the Dino+ but I live in the US; is the plug a European configuration? If it is, is a North American plug offered? If not, would an outlet adapter be okay, or will it alter the performance or damage the unit?

I would recommend that you call the company direct, Dennis and have a chat with them. I don’t see a problem but don’t take my word for it – in matter electrical, it’s always best to talk to the company 🙂

I have had this phono stage plus Dino + and thick connecting chord since its inception (so mk1 stuff in grey boxes).It is connected to a PrimaLuna valve amp. I can honestly say that what you have said about this product is the truth and nothing but the truth.
