The 382B is most easy to repair, if you even have to. I simply installed speaker fuses as I admired the socketed transistors and accessible (on both sides!) circuit boards. Using DeOxit D5, a careful cleaning of switches and pots was all that was needed to restore original function and clean sound. Connected to the Polk 5A speakers, I was pleasantly surprised.

The model 382B I have just resurrected is the second of three HH Scott receivers gathered over the few years at a local swap meet.

I swear these middle 1960's US-built solid state units are overlooked in favor of higher power direct-coupled Japanese units of the following decade.

After working on a Marantz receiver and a Pioneer amp, and having to unscrew and swing out circuit boards just to clean pots-switches, I have no desire to ever own one again. The HH Scott 357 used on my bench for record player service needed only a driver transistor in the last six years.
