Unhappy need a sub for an IC

I own a Crown DC-300A amplifier which I dearly love. I need help.

There is one and only one IC in the entire amp....a dual op-amp in the negative feedback loop....UA 739. I replaced it this spring because one channel began fading away in volume, and exhibited a hissy, weak signal.

I ordered a replacement from Crown, (only place I could find one) and they nailed me $18 for a 14-pin DIP chip.

Well, my amp must have an incorrect voltage, since the chip is apparently failing again. However, I can't find this chip anywhere in stock by a parts distributor. Many websites for chip importers list the number, but then you've got to buy hundreds or thousands of them.

MCM in Ohio showed that ECG725 was a sub, but it's no longer available.

Are there any other subs that you can suggest? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You could probably replace it with any dual opamp provided the replacement isn't too fast

A bit tricky - not too many dual opamps come in 14-pin DIP package.
I see it here:

Check the datasheet from the previous post to figure out which one you need. I think plastic is probably ok.

As the legendary Harry Caray used to bellow,"Holy Cow!" 66 cents is a whole lot cheaper than 18 dollars from Crown! Thanks!
