RESTORED AND ULTRA-MODIFIED VINTAGE H.H. SCOTT TUBE RECEIVERS
An All-In-One High End System: Amp, Pre-Amp, FM, Phono Stage
Several years ago, Pierre and a friend whos a vintage tube specialist discovered the magic of 60s small-tube Scott amps. These small-tube amps had startling low bass, unexpectedly clean and punchy, together with a soaring treble airiness. The bass and treble of the famous big tube amps (EL-34s, KT-88s, 6550s, etc.) sounded soggy by comparison. The two of them spent a year honing mods--testing one mod at a time-- to see how far they could take these little wonders. A year later, the modded prototypes were delivering stunning symphonic crescendos, lovely airiness, in-the-room presence, and amazing bass. Now that we've been turning out our modded amps for seven years, we're receiving a steady stream of raves from customers who replaced there $5k-$10K solid state and tube amps with our little Scotts.
In our current production the factory pre-amp stage is replaced with our own passive stage that beats any external tube pre-amp up to $7,500. The two factory power supplies have been upgraded in major ways. And included is a superb Scott phono stage that weve further upgraded.
For a customer with very limited space, we modded a 340 Scott receiver with the identical mods we use for our separate amps and tuners. The hot-rodded receiver
sounded just as stunning! After listening for only 30 minutes, Pierre suddenly realized our single chassis receiver actually sounded better than an $11,000 solid state system hed heard a couple of days earlier ($2000
tuner, $3000 preamp and $6000 amp). In contrast,
the cost of our fully restored and thoroughly modded Scott receiver is $1495. We also offer a rarer, drop-dead gorgeous AM-FM receiver. 30-day money back.
The basic specs of our modded Scott receivers are:
38 watts per channel; the dynamic swing is large enough to drive speakers as inefficient as 84 db to full realistic volume
integrated passive preamp
modded (and excellent-sounding) integrated phono stage
phono stage will handle both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges down .08 mv output
two external line level inputs, plus the onboard FM tuner
two phono inputs (high mag/low mag)
