Death of Cambridge A5 Amplifier? Can I bring it back to life?

My lady turned our trusty Cambridge A5 amp on the other day when the volume level was up to the max. (I think it might have accidentally set at max when it was being dusted).

Apparently a little bit of smoke came out of it and it gave a bit of burnt smell.

Does anyone know if this might be repairable?

I think I remember that there is a valve in it, so I'm wondering if the valve has been fried. If that's the case i don't know if it would be worth changing this.

I know it's not massively expensive, but if I can repair it i'd like to.
