@gopala33 is located a stone’s throw away from my side of the pond. perhaps he does not have any knowledge of local electronics technicians who can easily repair an integrated amplifier, onkyo or otherwise. i can vouch for the vast number of qualified people who can accomplish this task. more so the onkyo being an AB amp where parts replacement may not be an issue even if the unit has been discontinued. i recently had a NAD316BEE integrated amp standby power supply going south on me after ~7yrs of heavy use, got replaced for small change. this among other trivial electronics repair is no big deal if you have the proper information.
