Even at zero it's loud

My 80's peavey standard 260 solid-state amp head keeps on amplifyin' when both volumes are turned all the way down, which is disturbing. Can anyone shed light on why? YANMAmpRepairGuy.

I don't think this has always been the case, although maybe it has & i just didn't notice because i turn the volume down on the bass rather than fiddling with the amp. It is similar to this
though this is not the EXACT schematic of my model, it is all peavey offers. The capacitors were swapped out last year; the new ones are slightly off spec & they are screw-terminal whereas the oem were soldered in. I know I will have to bring it to an amp guy if i want to keep using it; just trying to assess whether it will be worth even the bench fee or whether i should write it off & focus my energy and money on a replacement. thanks much for your thoughts!
