A classic English made pre-amp from Magnum Audio. This have a wonderful MC and MM phono stage. Warm and sweet sound pre.

It offers a good midband separation of 80dB, very low A-wtd noise figures such as -84dB for MM disc, sensible input sensitivities and sufficient +29.5dB / +25,3dB headroom for MM / MC cartridges. 

Utilising a single Motorola 2N3906 transistor as a driver with a BC182B providing a constant current source. The latter covers the negative excursion of the waveform while the driver covers its positive excursion. The transistor never switches off and so is effectively operating in single-ended Class A mode!
