What sort of amp was it that blew up? No repair blokes around in the city that never sleeps?
I see Aldi have wool cardigans with shawl collar for $19 or so and jeans for $7.
Their gin was voted one of the best - in a tasting including Tanqueray etc in UK. And their soft cheeses here beat known brands in a Sydney comp.
NAD question of costs of repairs, looking at around $180 maybe more, then how many more years v new amp. Only one one real auido store,replete with audiophile nerds in Canberra.
