The 475 z-axis amplifier is actually a little easier to understand
than the others in the series because Q1352 is grounded so the emitter
and base voltages are fixed. The others use emitter degeneration for
better DC stability although by studying the differences, now I know a
trick for figuring them out just as easily. I had hoped that the
other schematics might have exactly the same circuit with the voltages
marked but they do not.
Someone else can analyze the actual DC restorer if neccessary. Those
always confuse me.
