"Nice remote box and nice solution.  Not all post-war Scott remote keyboards had colored insulation on the wires (some had all white) but all used vinyl insulation rather than black rubber insulation. Norman"

Remote Control keyboard - a substitute

For folks unfamiliar, we are talking about a pre-war Scott radio equipped for remote control operation - recognized by a big rear semi-circular housing for 12 station presets and a 21 pin Jones socket on the rear apron. In addition, the amp has an additional 24 volt step down transformer to power two motors and two relays inside the receiver. The volume control is motorized and has two switches, one to power up the radio and a second switch for most of the 24 volt circuit. Tuning is also…See More

"Hi Alberto. Good luck with your Philharmonic. Do a search on this Scott Enthusiasts site for threads with the word "Philharmonic" to gain insights on restoration. You dial with the logging scale suggests it is a 1940 or 1941 build. So…"

"Alberto - I always replace the filter capacitors (all the capacitors) in the power supply before testing. Generally, you should replace all the wax/paper capacitors in the tuner too. A lot of work but worth it! Kent"

Phantom Power Supplies

Posted by Kent King on November 20, 2021 at 9:24pm 1 Comment

I discovered something today that I had never noticed before. Background - I am working on an FM Phantom which has the later Jones plug connector. I just made a crossover cable with a female Jones plug to a standard Scott round plug to test the tuner with a "standard" amp. I was double checking my new connector and saw the 6.3v filament line on the amp I was working with (my working  set in the Stratford cabinet), had the CT grounded. The Jones plug amp with the FM Phantom was grounded on…

4-unit sound systems

Posted by Kent King on November 12, 2021 at 2:23pm 4 Comments

When the FM models were introduced in 1940, Scott also began offering a "4 unit" sound system. We've seen tweeter sets with the AW23 and the early Philharmonic sets (both use a Y-cable from the pedestal speaker to two tweeters). The 4-unit systems included a crossover box where you connected the bass speaker and two tweeters, and it also had a jack for an extension speaker. The crossover and 3 speakers constituted the 4-unit system, which sold for $29.50. Later units had a smaller crossover,…

One of the most requested items are Scott wood knobs. Forum member Ben E. has created actual wood reproduction "S" knobs for the late 30s sets. These are universal to everything from the Philharmonic to the Laureate (1937 to 1942). Please check them out at:

Passing on information that a nice 23 tube Scott with separate amp and power supply will be available at auction on September 25th, via Sargent Auction Service.  The dual tweeters and 12" speaker will be sold as separate items.  The Scott chassis has a stair case panel similar to what I have seen on Napier sets.  There is also a very nice original condition Zenith 1000Z Stratosphere.  Worth the look. …
