Old Dyna amp -- Worth Repairing??

I was given an old Dyna tube amp which seems to work well except, on occasion, there is an intermittent hiss or hum in one channel. Does this sound like a common or simple problem? I enjoy the use of this amp in my painting studio, so ultimate fidelity is not absolutely critical. However, I don't have the money to spend on a major repair. Typically, will I be charged a fee to even have someone open up and look at this piece of equipment? Or, should I ask for a free estimate? Any bits of advice on finding a fair and competent repair shop?

I am very glad I found this forum, as I enjoy music, but know very little about electronics, etc. (am a newbie), but am learning as I go. TIA.

Most repair shops, with good reason, charge an estimate refusal fee. I think that's fair. If you like art, then you should get the Dynaco repaired and enjoy. Just my 2 cents, as they say.
