I've compared the originally posted schematic to an actual unit, and have updated it to reflect what I've found inside my unit. Here is the verified schematic for the 2001 (version 4) of the Expandora;

I'm working on the 2000R (version 3, Godlyke reissue) at the moment. It does not use 308's, but a single 072 instead. Once I'm done, I'll post the schematic.

The only issue that will be MIA will be the very first version, commonly know as the "Script" version. This was the very first Expandora;

From what I can gather, it was fixed gain in the feedback loop (read "boring"). Unless someone has one, and wishes to share, I'm not bothering to chase this one.
No matter how many times I cut it, it`s STILL too short!
