It does get really warm but not so hot I cant touch it. It's funny, I was actually thinking of going back to a more vintage receiver (I still miss the Kenwood KR6160 that this one replaced, and I soooooo regret selling that a decade ago). Thinking of a Marantz possibly--if this dies, it will make the decision for me
It is in a shelf, one with a door, so I will keep the door open see if I cant fix a fan in there.
@Joseph--I grew up in Cleveland. Check out my last post in the music section on what is currently playing, I am sure it will be familiar to you
