There is a power shock in my home when i was listening to my music. When my power is back, i turn on my amplifier and i can smell bit of burning inside my amp.. i quickly shut my amp. When i turn on my amp, the power led is on but when i play music... i can;t hear anything.. What is being burned? Im using audiolab 8000A stero amplifier.. I was told this amp for power protection.. what the hell is going on? What to repair normaiillly and how much it cost to repair?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like the surge fried your amp.
Are you using a high quality surge protector for all your sensitive equipment (i.e., your stereo components)?

Contact the manufacturer for information on repair. They should be able to tell you the details and the cost.

Good luck.
