What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

H.H. Scott '59

H. H. Scott 299 (1958 - 1966)

The H. H. Scott 299 is the ultimate in complete stereo amplifiers. Introduced just a year ago, it is now in use in more fine music systems than any other stereo amplifier in the world. it has won praise from many leading high fidelity experts. It eas "check-rated" and recommended by both leading consumer testing organizations. The 299 was selected for display at world expositions like the Moscow fair.

The proven 40 watt stereo amplifier will drive even the most inefficient speaker systems because its special subsonic filter directs all power into the audible music range and its output stage is of extremely conservative design. This fine amplifier gives you a unique combination of exclusive H. H. Scott features, advanced engineering and handsome apperance. If you are planning a truly fine music system the H. H. Scott model 299 complete amplifier is the ideal choice.

  1. Have a 299 I found at a garage sale, it's missing a tube and the case.
    Also found a dynaco 400 watt amp that weighs a ton and has never been tested. Any takers? jdollinter@aol.com
