    Hullo. I have had a Yamaha A-700 amp at the heart of my system for over 20 years. It has developed a fault - cuts out at intervals after half an hour, say, then kicks in again, then cuts out. I suspect a component is overheating. Question 1: is it cost-effective to have it repaired; or better just to go and replace it? Question 2, what would you recommend as a replacement? Audio sources are CD, LP deck, tuner. Outputs to two Gale GS401A speakers. Original purchase price £300.
    Thanks in advance, Graham

    Sorry to state the obvious, but depends if/how much you like your amp ;) If you'd like to hang onto it, maybe try to find a nice local hi-fi store that'll give you a quote on repair...
