I'm curious to know if anyone has ever disassembled a McIntosh and sold the pieces separately. I have an MR77 tuner that has a very slightly bent chassis. Something a casual observer would never notice. The unit is otherwise pristine both physically and performance wise. Based on a few conversations, I honestly think I would have to drop the price well below $300 before anyone would be seriously interested. A bent chassis seems to be the kiss of death. The front panel glass with all the trim pieces is probably worth a lot. Then there are the knobs, etc. People quite often sell speaker components that have damaged cabinets.
