Question vintage amp repair?

I have an old sansui au-517 (late 70's vintage) amp that needs to be looked at. Last time I used it it was tripping it's own "power protector" circuit. This is an awesome amp that I want to use out in the garage. Anyone know of a place that works on these old amps?

or

I've used both with good results. KO is probably a little cheaper.

Yes Pinks is the shit. They will tell you exactly what is wrong and fix the problem. And they are very honest and reasonable too. Every time I went there they would check it out right when I walked in!

Well, I might not need a repair even though the last time I used the amp it was tripping it's internal circuit breaker. I moved the entire setup out into the garage tonight and it worked fantastic, thumping the neighbors and pissing off the people inside the house 1978 technology ruling, yo.

I've got an old Yamaha CR202 receiver that I need to drag out. I know one of the channels is blown out. Need to get it fixed, they are going to $400+ on Ebay
