The unit has MC input ( 66.75dB of gain ) and MM input ( 47dB of gain ), and, just as importantly, the Concerto Plus MC-TSE2 boasts an low noise level, so in practical use, the 66.75dB gain is usable in systems with low overall sensitivity. The Concerto uses a 6X4 rectifier tube with solid state regulator for HV B+ power supply , three 12AX7 for the gain stage and  Jensen 44K-XD MC transformer for MC step-up stage . MM input is 47K ohm. The Concerto all hand made by "point-to-point" . 

Features

Huge dynamic range, both the beautiful tone color and wonderful rhythm , 
ultra linear circuit designed for the LP and SP, it has 4 kind EQ network for select , include
RIAA , London ffrr , Columbia , SP. uncanny natural flowing heart-stirring sound that

The installation of the tubes line stage is special designed , it can prevent RF interfere and vibrate interfere,
It has become very clean soundstage and saw the musical instrument hang up in the air.

The HV B+ power supply is application of a highly efficient solid-state voltage regulator with 6X4 Tube for current buffer.
The 6X4 Tube opens up the soundstage and allows the music to "bloom". The melody flows naturally, like a river. 
The highly efficient solid-state voltage regulator give the very good bass controls .
