HH Scott LK-150 TUBE Power Amp and LC-21 PreAmp (similar to the Scott 130)
The LK-150 with 60 Watts per channel was one of the most powerful tube amps on the market.
The LC21 Preamp and LK150 PowerAmp are a matched pair, the power 6550 tubes are a matching quartet of old stock original Tung-Sol made in USA tubes dated 1961.
Unit has been fully restored and checked up by a McIntosh trained bay area technician recently. Works flawlessly, no hum or distortion.

The HH Scott LC-21 is a clean, straightforward 12AX7 based preamp. Fairly rare, it was only sold from about 1961-63. It was intended as the front end for the mighty Scott LK-150 power amp, which pushed about 60 WPC from it’s 6650A/KT-88 outputs.
The LC-21 has multiple unique features that precisely match my desires for a high quality vintage tube preamp:
Clean & simple design with commonly available 12AX7 tubes – Easy to service!
Two phono inputs – I have two turntables
A “flat”(mic) setting for the phono inputs – Lets you digitize old 78 and LP records and then re-EQ in post, after you’ve de-noised. Also enables real time 78 listening
Comprehensive mono/stereo switching and polarity invert or “phase” – Useful for checking speaker and cartridge phase and listening to old records and mono sources
Buffered line outs – The better to drive a solid sate amp, my dear!
A mono mix output – Useful for a sub or a mono monitor speaker
Aesthetically pleasing – The gold faceplate looks nice with my other Scott eqpt. and helps with the “PAF” (Partner Acceptance Factor) issue
