None of my business, I guess, but I feel obligated to point out that any radio/TV technician you trust could do it in a heartbeat. Having the right tools for the job is key to taking any risk out of the proposition. In order, 1) Very simple proceedure 2) Stax amps, I was astonished to find when I opened my SRM-007tII, have the easiest service access in the electronics scene 3) A good desoldering tool removes the possibility of a disaster. Find a tech who has a functioning one and who knows how to use it. I have a separate one that looks like a soldering gun. It was about $200US and banished the anxiety of component removal instantly and completely.
I have imposed on Spritzer to experiment on my personal SRM-007tII, but that was to field test a new mod. I cannot imagine needing to send a 727 off to a busy man to do such a simple job when any local technician will do. Spritzer has emphasized how simple the mod is and how easily reversible it is.
