Pioneer SA-series Amplifier repair?

Hi all. I have a very sentimental Pioneer SA-series Amplifier which has a problem. When played, it would make a loud (depending on the volume setting) noise and will cut the music for a couple of seconds. Sometimes it's quick, sometimes it takes minutes to recover. The noise sounds like some kind of short, and is really unpleasant, and doesn't sound healthy. I'm from South Africa and are willing to send this unit to wherever needed to get repaired. Can anyone pleeease help?
