That's a nice integrated amp. I had the HH Scott A436 a number of years ago. The A437 is a slightly different version in that it has less power(42 vs 49) and doesn't have individual EQ control for each channel like the A436.

What's it worth? Depending on the condition, wether it was built in the USA(it was), depending on where you live and the market for vintage solid state.As a person that buys and sells stereo equipment as a hobby, I would pay you 50-75.00US. But retail you could get an easy $100-125.00 and possibly over 200.00 if you sold it on ebay and people got into a bidding war or being in Europe/Asia area where it's more rare and highly valued.

If others are reading this be careful about buying HH Scott if not built in the USA, they're not built of the same quality and worth much less.

Don't abuse it too much it's 40 years old! haha

edit: try AudioKarma and http://www.diyaudio.com/ if they have any current prices and you might even find a buyer.

Happy listening, the Prisoner...
