Default HK Citation V schematic?

Neither Google nor the forum search is my friend today.

I've been looking around for a REAL Harman Kardon Citation V amp schematic, but all I can find in the Sams Photofacts version (like this one). It's everywhere. ...and no power supply included.

I also have the assembly manual that is floating around the internet, but curiously, it does not contain a schematic or any diagrams other than a drawing of the bottom plate, which isn't too exciting. The schematic is mysteriously absent, like Watergate minutes.

Anyone got the real schematic kicking around?

Yo Todd,
Yes, I have an original, but it's big. 11x17. I can scan it in two parts and email it to you directly. The forum is paranoid about posting original schematics. Tomorrow I will see if I can get a reduced copy of it as well. You'll have to send me your email addy through the forum. Or just send me a PM and I'll reply with it. Or I can snail mail a full size copy.

Oh, okay. I didn't realize HK would still be protective (or even care) about a 50 year old schematic, considering the circuit itself is readily available. And here I consider myself quite anal about copyright protection, having been bitten by IP theft myself.

I'll PM yah. Thanks.

Here's the requested schematic in two parts.

"HK Protective ?" I don't think so: the complete original assembly manual (29 pages) can be downloaded free from HARMAN KARDON's website:

Harman Kardon - Product Support - Select Your Product

Scroll down in "All Products" and select the model you're looking for. (Citation V)

Unfortunately it looks they didn't scan the big sized foldout pages and the schematic diagram is missing.

Most of the vintage (tube) HK manuals are available there for free download.
That's what I call real product support and HK should be congratulated for this service. There are not many manufacturer's around who still provide free manuals for 50+ years old obsolete products.
