The 5V parts (the hard drive and the backlight) are powered directly
from the battery, while the other parts are powered by a voltage
regulator. The power supply parts are not shown in the Jukebox 6000

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Freudian slip? :-)

The Jukebox 6000 is the Player/Studio model, not the Recorder.

Those schematics are far from complete. They were made by following
traces with a multimeter, and only the parts that were interesting back
then were measured. All digital parts are 3.3V, except the hard drive,
the backlight and the USB line drivers.
