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 featuring below click here

Description

Currently, my favorite H.H. Scott Integrated Amplifier is the Type 299-B, 222-C (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 timeless, 1960-1962 "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.
