mercedes 560sl 87' stereo system

hello, I had a few quick questions about the stereo system in my 560sl. I purchased this car not too long ago and am discovering a few quirks. The car came with the original Becker stereo system, whenever its turned on (whether using the radio or cassette player) it creates a high-pitched whine from the speakers. I went to a car radio store and they checked it out and told me it was probably the amplifier going bad. They also recommended changing out the whole system for a new one for around 500$ I'm fine with using the original system but need to know if it is the amplifier and if I can repair/change it out, or if i should invest in an entirely new system, either new everything or just new speakers and such..?
