Concert Fidelity electronics are designed and built by hand in Japan in the best artisan traditions of that country -- with a perfectionist's fanatic attention to detail and a purist's pursuit of optimized simplicity as the means of achieving the most musically authentic results.

Incidentally, achieving Concert Fidelity's level of circuit optimization and simplification requires a deeper understanding of audio circuits - what is essential versus what is best eliminated - than does implementing complex circuits which contain numerous compensatory components, but once our "surprisingly simple" designs are heard, it is difficult to go back to more complex amplifiers with their colorations and limitations.
As a case in point, the sound of the best tube electronics should be that of the tubes themselves, and our vacuum tube products reveal tube differences to a greater degree than we have ever heard elsewhere. This results in achieving "transparency," allowing the source material to be revealed in all its emotionally involving glory, without hi-fi enhancements, artificial warmth, muddiness, distortion, or glare.
Concert Fidelity goes to perfectionist and no-holds-bared approach in design and manufacture because we feel that discriminating customers will notice the subtle design touches and will readily hear the difference they make in expressive nuance and musical enjoyment.
Our highly optimized and simplified circuits, innovative and perfectionist layout techniques, carefully specified and matched parts, and custom transformers which may be the world's best, allow you to hear transient speed and low-frequency extension akin to solid state along with purity, delicacy, and musicality akin to single-ended triodes. With our electronics, you will hear, superiority in the following areas, without even being analytical or conscious.
