Hello all,

I am going to restore a H.H. Scott 350C for use in my vintage audio system. Presently I am trying to get parts ordered and find documentation. Does anyone have a Sams Photofact Index and would look up which folder this receiver is in. I have a few file draws of them, but I cant find my index books.

I have three tube Scott tuners here and I hope I picked the best one to use. One is a very clean 330C and which I have a Heathkit Multiplexer to use with it, a LT-110 which has the worse cosmetics, and the 350C. I am tore between the 330C and the 350C. Any recommendations?

Thank you,

David

I think your choice would depend on whether or not you want AM. The 330C has it while the LT-110 and the 350C do not. I have both an LT-110 and a 350C. Performance is about the same (which is excellent). I have a 331B AM/FM awaiting restoration. It is similar to your 330C but includes a phono preamp and tone controls. I expect the FM (mono) performance to be about the same as the others. Stereo performance would be at the mercy of the multiplex adapter when used.

Here is an on-line version of of the Sams index (ending 2002). HH Scott is on page 188.

I would go for the 350C.

Here is your schematic, I suspect the 350D is the same except for cosmetic changes.

If you've got some time on your hands, you might find this read interesting.

Thank you all for the input.

Don, thanks for the Sams link. Guess the 350C never got the Sams treatment.

Dave, I also have a LT-110 here but it is in rough shape. Thought that I would be better off avoiding the kit built tuner since I had the clean 350C. Do not need AM, have some E.H. Scotts that do a good job.

Will see if I can find a service manual on line for the 350 which I can grab for free.

On another note I had posted in the past about a Thorens TD 124 MK1 that was given to me. That has been a money rabbit hole but I have it overhauled and found a used rosewood Plinth for it. The other project, a Fisher X202 amp has been on and off my service bench countless times due to intermittent faults and noise. I may have got it fixed now, or maybe not.

Thank you for the help.

David W.

The schematic that Don posted is an HH Scott published schematic, not Sams. The link that I posted gives details about aligning these tuners.

Thanks Dave.

I had that schematic, but had hoped that there was a Photofact. I have most of the ones from this era, and I like them for the large size, chassis layout, and component information that is broke down in detail. An option not available this time. The link you posted has been downloaded and I will review it. Made an order with Just Radios for the parts I do not have.

I think there is an ARF thread regarding the350C and the selenium rectifier.
