I no longer have the manual, but can tell you that console has five 
mixers and that the cue and monitor amps are  internal plug-in modules. 
I don't remember whether or not it has an external rackmount transformer 
panel like its bigger contemporaries in the early 1970's "Solid 
Statesman" line do. Thinking again I believe it does. Iirc you will find 
five identical "output modules" which are left and right program amps, 
cue amp, and left and right monitor amps. The power transistors in these 
modules tend to fail too often, at least in continuous broadcast service.
