Default Tivoli Model One - Supply overvoltage, where to look for repair

I have been given a Tivoli Model One that has been connected to a 230VAC 50Hz supply but is only rated for a 117V 60Hz supply. (The previous owner thought they were onto a good thing but didn't realize the voltage mismatch before powering up, darn....)

Now when connected to a 12VDC supply only a buzzing noise can be heard from the speaker, volume or tuner location makes no difference. I have pulled apart for a peak and nothing obvious other than the power filter capacitor, (4,700uF) looks slightly bulged out, suspect this has blown. I plan to replace this and try my luck..

Any other ideas on where i should be looking for potential damage? Any help would be appreciated.
