|H H Scott 299B Integrated Amplifier With Tubes Lit|
Here is the Dynaco SCA-35. It looks as if I had it playing mp3 files recorded to a CD spinning on the player in the foreground.

These amplifiers sounded so good, that I went to great lengths to "memorialize" that electron tube by building a three-dimensional model in TrueSpace4. This was quite a project because I did not have any training and had to learn this program on my own. At any rate, I built the model of the tube within this program and saved several "output" images of it. Years later, I got the original version of TrueSpace4 to work on a vintage XP desktop given to me by a good friend and managed to find the original working files I used to develop the model that I had saved on a backup disk. I was able to input the model and adjust rotation and perspective and lighting to get higher resolution output images. More on that later.
The image from which the background on this web page is generated is a copy of one of the original images I had saved of the tube model from several years ago. It would be interesting to make a scene in TrueSpace4 of a complete classic tube amplifier in operation with all filaments glowing.
