Not a frequent poster here but hope someone can help.

I bought an old Harrison X150 amp a couple of months back from Ebay and after a few minor repairs (replaced volume pot and mains switch) it was
up and running, sounding remarkably good for a 27 year old amplifier. In case i ever needed to do a more complex repair, i trawled the internet looking for a circuit diagram and managed to find lots of references to HH Electronics VX-150 schematic which looked very similar to the X150 (i know about the history of Harrison, HH and Laney). In the meantime, another X150 came up on Ebay and i snapped it up with a view to having a spare or experimenting with bi-amping etc. The second X150 looked identical except the Plug-in modules on the back panel were recessed.
I did all the basic power-on tests before plugging it into my system. First thing i noticed, the output volume even at maximum level was very low. Removed the lid and was surprised to see totally different internal electronics from the first X150. Clearly, a later revision but without the two VCA plug-in modules which the first unit has. That probably explains the lack of volume? I dont suppose anyone out there has a circuit diagram that includes the VCA module or a couple of spare VCA modules lying around? i have posted pics to help identify. Ta
