"Norman; This is another stunning cabinet! I looked at the other photos of the Beardsley group including the speaker cabinet. It has a beautiful shimmering brocade grill cloth. It is a refined design that is not overdone in any way, but commands…"

800B Chassis Install in 16A Cabinet

Over the last several days I have been working to get the 800B chassis to fit into my Metropolitan 16A cabinet. As part of the process I have moved the AM loop antenna somewhat forward inside the cabinet. It lies in the speaker enclosure part of the cabinet. There is only a very thin piece of plywood or Masonite on the back of the speaker enclosure area which will not be good for dealing with the planned bass reflex I will be creating in the cabinet. I have the speaker baffle board out of the…See More

800B Preset Contact Height Adjustment

For those familiar with the 800B tuning preset contact height adjustments:The service information says that the contacts should be adjusted for a height above the backplate surface of 11/16ths. of an inch. I checked mine and the all seem to be set for about 9.5 to 10 16ths. of an inch. They all appear to be making good contact.The problem I am having is that when a pushbutton is pressed and held, when it reaches the preset contact it appears to land in such a way that it briefly touches both…See More

"As it turned out, using a steel plate to support the 800B tuner in a Metropolitan cabinet of this type does not work. The 800B tuner chassis turns out to be significantly taller than that of the Metropolitan tuner. I thought I had it covered until I…"

New Listing of 800B on eBay & a Chairside AW16 Brentwood

There is a new listing on eBay of an 800B with cabinet asking a starting bid of $500. I do not recognize the cabinet style. It is not Chippendale. It appears to have a non-field core speaker, but I am not sure. The cabinet is not in the best of condition and would need refinishing. There was originally a Garrard changer I believe based on the looks of the mounting board in the changer compartment. See:…See More

Text Background Color

Posted on December 29, 2016 at 6:19pm 3 Comments

I am wondering if there is any way to change the background color displayed with the text of posts by members. I have difficulty in reading the text with the gray background color. I have had cataract surgery and have to use a magnifying glass in order to read the posts. A white background makes it easy for me to read the posts without resorting to the magnifying glass. I was able to make this change on my personal page, but not here on the forum or blogs.

800B Schematics and Relay connection differences

Posted on November 23, 2016 at 10:40am 1 Comment

Overall E H Scott Co. did a great job of documenting the 800B model versions, however, there is one area where they seemed to go into uncharted territory. The labeling of the Jacks and Plugs on the two chassis tends to lead to confusion. Normal practice in the industry is to have J numbers coincide with their mating P numbers. In the case of the 800B: the P1 Receiver plug of the Receiver chassis mates with J3 of the Power Supply chassis; P2 audio plug of the radio chassis mates with J4 audio…

First Introduction to E H Scott Receivers

Posted on November 15, 2016 at 8:45pm 5 Comments

My first exposure to E H Scott receivers was through a friend who had acquired an 800B which was not functional. I was working in consumer electronics repair at the time. He had been unsuccessful in finding anyone who could repair it in Dallas. I finally agreed to try. It turned out to only have a shorted bypass capacitor in the FM IF strip that took out a B+ isolation resistor. It played fine after parts were replaced. No tubes were at fault and were still working very well.
