There are other AVR's in the world and based on your description of the product's condition, my two cents are you should send it back. Any impacts hard enough to literally break off feet and leave dents in the case are too much. It sounds like the moisture barrier must have been compromised too. That thing has to go back.
Maybe some other members can steer you to some makes / models that offer similar feature sets at a similar price point. You might consider listing your must have features, power etc.
Good luck whatever you decide.
Every once in a while, quite inexplicably, things actually go according to plan.
