250 yes, but not 230.  Do they use the same modules?

It's unichassis, no modules. 

It's kinda the Western Electric 23 as to the Western Electric 25.  Get it?  23/230, 25/250.   Not that it means the circuits translate, but the general product tier.

It must be out there, and I've found the best way to conjure such is to start drawing it yourself.  A finished reverse engineering always brings it out...well, usually.  If not, then you've got it.

Found the power supply schematic... P522B - is this the same unit as a 250 console?

Truth, it has happened to me with a preamp circuit.
