Default Torque Acoustics Amplifiers - Schematics needed

Hello,
I need to do an overall service in a Torque T50B amplifier.
These were cheap solid state amps that were common for starving musicians and garage bands in the late 80s and early 90's in Europe.

I couldn't find any Torque Acoustics schematic anywhere, and also it seems the company doesn't exist any longer.

Is there any change anyone has any Torque amplifier schematic?
Or any info or contact?

Even if it's not from this amp, I have a feeling they are all based in same basic solid state circuit, so it migh help.

Thank you

Torque amplifiers seems to be an old brand, long since vanished as you say. The Thorn EMI label gives an indication of it's age.

Would think the circuit is pretty simple, a few opamps on the front end and a basic complementary pair or similar OP stage. What's up with it? Usually old guitar amps suffer from broken/tired IP jacks and the switches and pots need a clean for a start, check for short circuits, then check the power supply is ok and getting to all the opamps etc.

Good luck, Andy.
