The Trilogy 903 combines peerless sound quality with impressive control flexibility. The optional integral phono stage makes this all the preamplifier you could ever need. The audio circuit benefits from Nic Poulson’s years of experience in audio design, his pursuit of transparency and true fidelity leads to an elegant solution that reflects the passion of the designer.
The control menu is accessed intuitively using the rotary encoder plus enter and escape buttons. The hierarchy is carefully designed to put all the commonly needed commands close to hand. Display brightness, customised labels and gain trims for each input, film mode, security bonding, sleep countdown, timed system switch on via TAS link, and remote operation are amongst the many configurable options available to personalise your Trilogy 903 the way you want it.
The gain stage uses the 6H6П super tube for all voltage gain. This Russian military triode has high transconductance and low mu for exceptional performance at audio frequencies. The grounded grid configuration allows the tube to operate in pure Class A with the highest linearity and the lowest distortion. The output impedance is low for excellent drive capability.
Three transformers feed the power supplies. The valve’s high voltage supply is actively shunt regulated. This topology ensures that the regulator can sink as well as source current, a vital detail that enables the voltage rail to remain quiet and stable under all conditions, a vital requirement for high resolution audio.
The optional phono stage is no marketing afterthought. It has much in common with the acclaimed 907, being a Class A design with passive RIAA EQ. The active circuit is fully discrete, the on board shunt regulators have their own power supply for maximum fidelity. Gain for either moving magnet or moving coil, cartridge resistance and capacitance loading, are all adjustable from the menu hierarchy via local or remote control via infrared handset or our powerful TAS link interface.
The Trilogy 903 is of rare quality, it offers both supreme flexibility and peerless construction. Above all, it is the sublime musical performance that will convince you of its rightful place; at the very heart of your music making.
