 Product Description

During the Golden Age of Radio, the vision of one man, E.H. Scott, continually set the highest standards for radio receiver technical performance, innovation and quality. The products of his company, E.H. Scott Radio Laboratories, were considered status symbols of their day - most with chrome plated chassis, high fidelity sound reproduction and elegant cabinets. Today those Scott radios are some of the most highly treasured by vintage radio collectors. Here is the story of Scott and his Company as related by Marvin Hobbs, Scott's Chief Engineer from 1939-1947. Hobbs' key role with Scott, his first person recollections, and extensive industry experience offer a most unique and interesting insight into a fascinating piece of the history of radio.


Out of print for over 17 years, Radio Daze Press is proud to offer The Second Edition of E.H. Scott - The Dean Of DX written by Marvin Hobbs. Greatly expanded in format and content with 256 pages including a color section and schematics of most classic E.H. Scott sets. This book is a must-have for all E.H. Scott and vintage radio enthusiasts. --Radio Daze Press

  1. Comprehensive resource

    Posted by Jeff McDaniel on May 8th 2017

    This book is an excellent resource. The information is comprehensive and includes schematics for everything up to the 800 B. Great book, thanks for reprinting it Radiodaze!

  2. An Informative and Helpful Book

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 6th 2017

    I enjoyed reading this 2nd edition of this book. I have an E. H. Scott model 800B that I am restoring. It was nice to learn more about E. H. Scott himself and the company the founded. There are a number of nice color photographs of various models that are helpful to collectors. The book gives a good overview of the development of radio transmission and reception from its very early days. This would be a good book for today's young people to read. People like E. H. Scott were excellent examples of character to inspire others.
