So this is the first time I have seen a company advertise a service like this. Got this info via an email but wont repost since techincally it is a violation of thier newsletter terms of service.....
Outlaw Audio will phsyically disconnect the amplification section of the a Marantz SR5005 bought from them for 75 bucks, test it to ensure its working up to spec, warranty the AVR for 4 years, and undo the mod for free during that time.
The 5005 has pre-outs so you could save yourself some energy, heat and wear and tear on this if your running external amplification. Pretty spiffy deal if you ask me.
Wonder if they would disconnect just 3, or 5 of them for folks who have more speaker channels than external amplification:
