Recommended Posts

Just hooked my new to me HH Scott tube set (just serviced with new tubes and re-capped) with my recently acquired '72 Klipsch Khorns and holly mother of God this set sounds fantastic!
Hooked up my just serviced and with a new stylus Marantz turntable with a clean vinyl copy of Pink Floyd Dark Side and wow just wow!
I'm a happy camper tonight! :D

What Scott amp is that, if I may ask?

 

355 tuner/preamp and 208 amp.

And also which amp is between the Scott and turntable, and how is it used?

208 and so far just with the turntable and CD.

I'm sure it sounds great.  I once tried my Scott 130 pre with a 208 using Cornwalls and that sound really good.  Is the 355 basically a 130 with a tuner?

I have no idea but I found this looking for specs.

The 355 was introduced as a more versatile replacement for the older 399; as such, it was the only Stereo Preamp-Tuner product ever produced by Scott.

As a Tuner/Preamp (similar to the older 331-series) the 355 had no basic power amplifier section like the 399 Receiver. Instead the 355 provided a cathode follower, line-level, preamp out --
Just add the
basic power amp of your choice, usually a Scott Type 208, but Mac's and Dyna's were also popular choices.

The 355 added true FM-MPX stereo reception utilizing the 350/335 decoder design, incorporating the "Stereo Guide,"
6AV6 tube indicator.

As
"Simulcast Stereo" was becoming obsolete, the 355 was the only Scott AM/FM tuner to share a (very rare) common circular tuning dial. Scott engineers cleverly resurrected the 300/320 tuning gang, but thankfully left the more complex dial-cord string and slide-rule dial inventory untouched.

To accommodate a matching power amp;
 Scott offered the optional,
208 Power Amp; a modular piggy-back, design derived from the 7591-based 299-C amp. All audio connections, accessory AC, and antenna jacks were top-mounted on the shortened chassis, to facilitate the matching 208 "piggy-back" package.

18 tubes:

6-tube, Pre-Amplifier section:

(4)
12AX7 - preamps
(1) 12AU7 - cathode follower
(1) 6CA4 rectifier


5-tube, FM Tuner section:
(1) 6BS8/6BQ7 - FM RF amp
(1) 6U8A FM mixer
(3) 6AU6 (shared w/AM)

5-tube, MPX section

(1) 6AV6 (6GX8) ("Stereo Guide")
(1) 6BL8 - MPX
(2)
12AU7 - MPX
(1)
12AT7 - MPX


2-tube, AM Tuner section:
(1) 6BA6 AM RF Amp
(1) 6BE6
