My 6 years old Audioengine 5 also developed problems like crackle, massive pops and "blow into microphone" sounds

When we switch on the unit, there is no noise or crackle. But as soon as a song/audio is played, the above mentioned issues comes up.

As there is no Audioengine support in India, I got it repaired from other sources. Here are some details which may help other A5 users.
The below is my assumption - please correct if you see a mistake.
There are two circuit boards in the audioengine 5. The left one seems like the preamp. It has two voltage regulators, some 8-9 solid caps and other caps. The right one may be the power amp (caps like 475j 100v are present here).
I can see repair was carried on the left board only. The right board is untouched.
Looks like 4 capacitors are changed and a resistor also added.

My Audioengine A5 speaker started giving issue (looks like it is the same issue mentioned in this thread). The right speakers (passive one) gives rumbling / crackling sound. If i connect that speaker with my Marantz amplifier, then it is working without any issue. The left speaker works well without any issue. So the issue is with the amplification part (left speaker's amplifier unit).

Anyone suggest any good service center / person who can help in get this repaired in Hyderabad? As per my understanding, there is no authorized re seller / service option available in India.
