Fans are usually replaceable. I'm no expert on receivers, but I'm sure you could find a place that will swap out the existing fan for a better one.

Perhaps someone knows the answer to this.
I recently purchased a top of the line receiver by yamaha,
the rx-v740, only to discover that its fan produces an audible e below
which makes it useless to me when listening to chamber music, or any
where amplitude has peaks and valleys.
Is it normal for the fan to be audible?
Is this a design trend, or are there superlative amplifiers out there
or at least without noisy fans?
If a fan is noiseless, will it get noisier with age?
