"Scott . . . where innovation is a tradition."

"H.H. Scott has been a leading manufacturer of superb high fidelity components since 1946. During this period Scott has been responsible for the introduction of many new concepts in both the engineering and design of components."

"H.H. Scott produced the first high fidelity amplifier (in the modern sense of the term). Later, Scott eliminated unsightly wires and tubes by designing the first "flat" amplifier.....bringing high fidelity components from the workshop to the living room. Scott was the first manufacturer to introduce a successful Wide-Band FM tuner, and Scott was first to deliver multiplex adapters and tuners which met the requirements of today's FCC-approved (Zenith/GE) stereo transmission system. And Scott was the first to produce modular tuner-amplifier combinations."

Important Scott industry "Firsts" . . . . .From a Scott brochure -- circa, 1961

Also see the tribute to Daniel R. von Recklinghausen, Chief Research Engineer.
