As fine a receiver as anything made that year by anyone. Great tuner, super quiet phono end,high quality amp with lots of headroom...These are spectacular, and unknown by most,so can be had cheaply on ebay. If you can find one, they are definitely worth sinking some money into to bring them back to par...Marantz,Pioneer,ect. have nothing on this monster of a receiver and it's smaller version the 380R(85 watts)same specs on everything except output.



re: 390R Adding to Beardg's comments

This particular line of Scott was a very special focus very well built very well designed they were designed to be better than the market to win back market share and did a great deal to inspire confidence. The 380 and 390 are both quite similar and both quite well made and sound really well, as mentioned the phono section is exceptional sounding. restoration is on the less complex side as things are well laid out and access is easy. These are rare but the market is low cause its not one of the big names, a true sleeper, and a keeper i have had Pioneer, Sansui and Marantz come and go but the Scotts remained because the quality is as good ro better and the prices for the others just make them to easy to part with this is the very definition of sleeper.
