HH Scott 222c is a very desirable Vintage HI-FI component from 1962. This was Modified by the Maple Shade people back east about 6 years ago for a friend of mine now passed on, who was a HI-FI fanatic from the late 50's on. He took great pride in his art of gutting chassis and installing his own designs from Tube to Solid State and back.
This amp was hooked into his system at his passing. The Amp was modified to allow only Phono Hookup. All tone and switch controls are disconnected except for the far right switch (on-off) and 2nd to the left (Phono/CD or what have you) extra input switch which I had a tech run a lead to the phono pre amp input allowing the user to connect CD or Tape or Tuner etc. The only dial that is connected is the Loudness/Volume. His whole thing was to eliminate any signal loss.
As you can see there are only two 12ax7 preamp tubes and the other two were replaced for extra capacitors. This amp by far exceeds the originals capacitance quite a bit, as Maple Shades reasoning was for better bottom and transients and perhaps an extra 4-6 watts of power in the process up to 26 watts instead of the original 20 watts. The Amp runs my 92db A/D/S L520 speakers fine.
