Dolby A301 Analog Processors (HW)

Dolby A301

Don't know if this belongs in high end but figured if anyone had them you guys would since they are so rare now. Who here is using an old Dolby A301 for compression? There was a mention of one being used in the recent Mix "classic tracks" article on Journey's song "Don't Stop Believing" (Steve Perry's signature vocal sound) with the low compressor cards being pulled. I've aquired a couple units and if you have any and use them I'd like to talk to you about adjustments.

I have an A301 the says CBS Records on the side. It was modified by them to switch remotely. In order for me to use it I need a schematic or someone with patience to show me hoe the output was wired originally. Any help out there?
