Yea, but you've never really elaborated on that "speciality" film career you had in the '70s. How exactly was it that you put your back out?

It was in headphone mode, which disengages the speaker amplifier part of the circuit as far as I know (you can hear the relay click when it goes into headphone mode).

It wasn't currently playing any audio, but it was plugged in and turned on, just sitting idle.

Water went into the power end of the main PCB, away from the inputs and near the transformer, can see a good area of the PCB, mainly resistors and BJTs that are wet, but the vertical boards are all dry.

There was no smoke or bang, it just quietly turned off, so I'm hoping its just a fuse that's gone and it will survive. Anyone want to make odds?
I'm not an audio repair/water damage expert at all, so this is just my personal opinion and would depend on your skill level and if there is any mfg. warranty against such damage, etc. etc.

I'd make sure the amp is dry inside so things don't get any worse than they already are. I'd open it if possible and use a hair dryer or something like that to blow warm air on things if it isn't dry by now. NOT REAL HOT and NOT HIGH PRESSURE AIR like from an air compressor which could drive water into places it isn't already.

I've done some not-so-smart things too, but it isn't the best idea in the world to apply power if you don't know the amp is dry inside and any obvious damage is repaired for fear it will only do more harm.
