I recently added an MR78 tuner and sent it up to Audio Classics to be modded by Richard Modafferi. A very popular mod. Excellent work.

The only McIntosh mod I am aware of is Richard Modafferi. He is an independent consultant to Audio Classics and has agreed to do repairs, modifications and updates for customers of Audio Classics. Richard was a Senior Engineer at McIntosh Laboratories from 1968-74 and he designed the MR77 and MR78 tuners and the famous "Rimo" filter. Please see http://www.audioclassics.com/mods.php3 for a complete description of the Modafferi mods.
i dont know about being too conservative to mod but my experience with mac gear & mods is that there is no point in modding the gear,why mod something that sounds good & your happy with.
zero resale value is also a reason,the only mods that will make a mac tuner gain in value are done by the mcintosh designer richard modafferi,any other mods performed by others make the gear worthless.
