Default TEAC AGV 8500 repair or move on.......

hi
lurker alert here, you guys do some great work and pretty inspiring well done to all here

ok, ive had this amp 10 years and i know well times have moved on but it just sounded so nice at any level and just seemed happy at whatever was thrown at it

short story, last year left channel started buzzing slightly then as it got worse it just went into protect mode after a few minutes on, so i retired it.
after dissasembly one of the caps has a big bubble on top, and several of the switching things have burnt type areas at the base of the main board, also the fan has ceased working

im currently happy with an old tecnics setup, but im sure the sound from the teac was warmer, the teac though is only the first pro logic system so pretty old

the question is is it worth the effort or is it time to move on, and where to start

capability wise, im no good with numbers, but not shy to tinker, good with a soldering iron, pretty much a beginner i suppose but if pointed in the right direction i will succeed

thanks all

Try just replacing the caps if it appears to be in working order and none of the outputs are shorted.
Caps due go bad in time and lately I haved learned that through the years there have been a few bad runs of them with premature failure.
But I couldn't tell you which products had the problems.
Just in case you run into any issues you should try to obtain the schematics aswell. jer

I might be interested in breaking it for parts, how much do you think postage would be?
