This is a vintage gem that I have to let go. It is time for another audiophile to listen to and enjoy it for a long time to come. It has served me well but I am rotating equipment.
Model 340-B Available from 1963 -1964
Rated at 30 Watts per channel from (4) 7591 Tubes
Inputs: Phono, Aux, and Tape
17.5" x 14" x 6.25" and weighs 35 lbs
The 340-B came on the scene a little more than 15 months after the original 340(A)'s introduction.
It's easy to confuse the 340-B with its Slide-rule dial with later solid-state models. But the "B" featured many improvements, which apparently justified a $20 increase in Sixties.
All 340-B's have solid-state power supplies, headphone outputs, input indicators, speaker switching, and the new Auto-Sensor stereo switching (6KE8) MPX section
18 Tubes total for this Scott 340B Receiver includes three sections:
10-tube, Amplifier section:
(4) 12AX7 - preamps
(2) 6U8/6GH8-Split-load phase inverters
(4) 7591 outputs
5-tube, FM Tuner section:
(1) 6BS8/6BQ7 - FM RF amp
(1) 6U8 FM mixer
3-tube, FM MPX section:
The sound of this remarkable tube receiver is warm and pleasing compared to the Fisher 500C and 800C, Personally, I felt Scott 340B has more solid and punch in audio section as compared to Fisher 500C or 800C. And the FM Multiplex Stereo sensitivity is very high only needs a short metal wire connected to the Antenna input for pulling in many local station in hi-fi music listening.
The chassis could be cleaned but after 50+ years it has a remarkably small amount of natural dirt and I like to keep vintage collectable items in their natural state. Most collectors are like that.The description of this item is "as is" and it is sold "as is" with no returns. Sorry to have to do this but a minority of people make it difficult for the rest, Maybe you can see and hear it over skype. I will do anything possible to make you comfortable that you are buying a very nice receivers. I want you happy with your purchase.
If you are in Tuscon, Flagstaff, or anywhere between we can meet somewhere inbetween..
Remember, I can't consider and offer you don't make.
