Heavy as a truck battery, lots of sonic punch even at low levels, triple tone controls, power meters, and something rarely found on consumer electronics: an IEC socket. This means you can socket a heavy duty power cord into the 380R, a feature usually reserved for pro gear and laboratory equipment. This receiver flies under the radar because everyone has Marantz Mania, Pioneer Fever or Sansui Sickness and HAS to possess one of those highly advertised models. This is one of the best-sounding receivers I have ever heard, at any volume, and it is also a stunner visually.

This was one of the last great receivers made by HH Scott during their SS years. Great tuner, excellent phono pre-amps(2),and underrated power. This receiver used the same amplifier as their TOTL integrated and separate amplifiers from that year,just a small reduction in output.Totally under appreciated, they can be found cheap on ebay..The 380R and the 390R are the TOTL amps, better than many separates from that period,or even today.The lower models, 320R,350R,370R are fine receivers but have lesser quality tuners and amps,though still quite a bit better than many more popular receivers from that time. Mine is close to 40 years old(I am original owner) and the unit has been gone through by Vince at Audio Proz in Watertown Mass, though still working, he did clean up a few things and replaced bulbs ect. Now powering a pair of SNELL TYPE C speakers,though 85 watts is on the low side for these speakers, the Scott performs well, handles a 4ohm load no problem and gets very loud with no distortion.
