A quick Goog search brought up these people, never dealt with them before so cant vouch for them. Give them a try.

I wouldn't really go to the trouble of having it repaired if its not something very minor. I paid R1000.00 one of these receivers a less than a year ago. You should be able to find something similar for under R2000.00. The way receivers are de-preciating(spelling?)
 in value , they have become disposable items almost. Just my opinion

I am an owner of this exact amplifier.
If I am not mistaken it uses those Sanyo Hybrid ICs for the output stage, in which case its as easy as pie to fix?
