One of the vertical ceramic pre driver boards is probably having issues. Sometimes a transistor can have a cold or fatigues solder joint. There are other guys here with lots of experience on that.

Don't forget bad electrolytic caps in that list. They are the weakest of all the components in any amp, And your amp is old enough to need them to be replaced. I would start with the power supply caps first, especially the little ones in the lower rails, they are usually beat up very bad by heat build up and change color from Grey to brown even.
I do it everyday to amps this age.

As for the SIP cards they develop bad solder connections and heed to be touched up possibly. Other than that they usually fail outright and crash the amp....Best of luck

This is what the bad connections look like on the driver transistors on the driver boards.

try cleaning your rca heads, sometimes they develop a film of grunge on the surface and they can make a crackiling sound.
