Up for sale here is an H.H. Scott LK-72B.
I purchased it from a fellow here on AudiogoN roughly a year ago. It has been a wonderful replacement for my previous integrated, but I've since moved on to an 845-based SET integrated and so here it is, back up for sale.
The previous owner had it restored, replacing all capacitors, cleaning all switches, selectors and pots - there is no noise at all during the operation of any of them.
He included some nice tubes, which will be included in this sale:
- Raytheon (Japan) 5AR4
- Amperex Bugle Boy 12AX7's
- Raytheon (Japan) 6GH8's
- Raytheon (Japan) 12AX7's
He also had some bias taps installed to make re-biasing a breeze (one probe in a tap; one on the rear ground screw). I've re-biased it to a slightly lower voltage for longer tube life.
I replaced all tubes with period-correct NOS, to the tune of $650:
- Telefunken smooth plate 12AX7's (Dynaco branded)
- Telefunken ECF82's
- Mullard GZ34
- Westinghouse 7591's (Sherwood branded)
I also have some NOS Mullard ECF82's ($100) that I used for only a couple of days before receiving the above Telefunken's. These, too, will be included.
The LK-72 puts out 36 watts/channel and will accommodate 4, 8 and 16Ω speakers.
It sounded absolutely sublime with my single driver Omega Speaker Systems Super 7XRS Mk2's (8Ω/95db).
One of the things that is prized in this amp is it's phono section. Keep that in mind when considering other integrated's where you'll need to spend more money to accommodate that functionality...and likely with inferior results. I used it with a Garrard 301/SME 3009 S2/Denon DL-103 out to a Parks Audio "Budgie" SUT (Cinemag-based) with truly wonderful results.
The unit does not come with any housing (folks often run them without to let things breath). It also doesn't have any feet (removed and misplaced), but I'm including three Herbie's Audio Lab Iso-Cup's with the lamp black glass balls to place under it (soft flat side against the amp). These are wonderful at keeping the device isolated. I think this is the best solution for these old integrated's.
*Please take note of the close proximity of the left and right RCA jacks. I used old(er) AudioQuest Viper's and some DIY Duelund and Belden (Yazaki-san) cables with Switchcraft RCA plugs. I was unaware of this prior to my purchase and ended up not being able to use some of my "nicer" cables with larger/modern plugs (though I've come to find the Duelund and Belden options are rather amazing).
