    Default HH Scott Vintage Tube Amplifiers

    Hi All

    I'm looking to purchase 4 HH Scott Valve amplifiers from a contact in due course weather or not they can run on UK mains is yet to be seen as i need to view again - whats the best way to go about them they are most likely spares or repair what are the pros and cons great if working 's if not working but what to offer for the lot is hard as the guy is a good friend but i need to way up is it worth the time and effort he's holding them for me at the moment or go for the Audio Innovations 800C i'm looking for advice here. Not that i need anything valve as very happy with the LA Audio but looking into all options models are unknown currently

    No one has answered but all I can say is that my HH Scott 350 tuner is blinkin' fantastic.

    So they did make at least one great item

    Meant to post, I had thought these were the same maker as the HH studio amps the BBC used after Quad but a search showed they are a US valve amp maker. The amps looked very well made to me and worth spending a bit to get them restored.

    Info they are

    Scott Type 296
    Scott LK 72
    Scott stereomaster 340

    I'm not sure what to offer and they are strictly spares or repair - what do you guys think worth risking or leave well alone?

    At least schematics are available at hhscott.com

    All are 110V only by the look of it.

    I Have a Stereomaster type 299-B integrated, and a 121 -B Dynaural preamp on the bench at the moment, both came in to be serviced, re-valved etc, these are high quality units, although the amplifiers are quite complicated to set up, ie; bias, and signal balance etc, so not the usual plug and play, I have had a few Scott amps in over the years, and when serviced properly, they are very reliable.
    Hope this helps.
