Hi I'm sorry to hear that. How old is your Sound-stage?
Also what is it connected to?
And did the buzzing and volume drop happen while in use?

Thanks for this information.
Those are electrolytic capacitors and that is your problem.
SO you did well in finding the problems.
Those caps will need to be replaced to restore normal operation. If you have soldering of electronics experience you could replace these yourself. But if you don't have this experience you would likely cause further damage to the board.
Many electronic stores local now service electronics and can fix this for you. Especially when you tell them whats wrong and what you need them to replace ;-)
These capacitors aren't very expensive at all and are easily replaced by an experienced technician.
I would check with those store for this and see if they will do that for you.
Also you can use Sears home electronics service for this.
Many stores accept electronics for repair then send them out for this fix, check with your local Sears store if you have one or a similar store. I cant be sure how much the repair will cost where you are
but the repair shouldn't cost much.
I will stick with you until your unit is working correctly,and it won't cost you anything additional to rate my service. You can always get in touch with me if you need further assistance after rating;-)
Thank you and have a nice day;-)
