OK, OK. This page is sure to stir up a hornet's nest. But I am frequently asked,
"What are your favorite vintage H.H. Scott components?"
I would also very much like
to hear from you. What are your favorite vintage Scott's and why? If you would like to comment or submit your favorite vintage H.H. Scott gear for

Currently, my favorite H.H. Scott Integrated Amplifier is the Type 299-B,
(shown), or the Type LK-48 (kit version). I like these units for their
sweet sounding (and available) EL84M/7189A output tubes and their unique and
"golden-era of hi-fi" styling (i.e., not influenced by outside
consultants or shared with later "squalid-state" models).
These amps are easy to maintain, currently plentiful, and reasonably affordable. It
wasn't an accident that this family of integrated amps was the most
successful (integrated amp) of all time, inspiring other manufacturers to offer similar
products, like the Dynaco SCA-35.
When all the fabulous H.H. Scott tuners are considered, it really is
difficult to only choose only one favorite. But if FM Stereo (multiplex)
is high on your enjoyment list, it narrows the field (unless your are
lucky enough to find a Type 335/LM-35 MPX Stereo Adaptor.)
The 350B/LT-110B family gives very nearly the same performance in
typical urban reception settings as the legendary 310-E, at a fraction of
the cost. I like the B-series for the Sonic Monitor feature and its
unique and timeless, "golden-era" 1960-1962 styling. These tuners are an excellent
value, relatively plentiful and still affordable.
