    Have just changed my DVD from the creaky 5-year old marantz I had to a Pioneer 575A - lovely little machine, and the component looks great on the LCD

    But one problem - the only spare space in my set-up is on top of the amp - and the air vents on my amp are on the top. This wasn't a problem before as the Marantz had 2-inch thick feet, so there was plenty of clearance between the top of the amp, and the bottom of the DVD player. However, the Pioneer has no feet, so is sat with abour 2mm clearance over the amp.

    The easy solution would be to attach some similar feet to the pioneer to prop it up over the amp - but are these available to anyone's knowledge? The alternative is re-organising everything in the AV set-up which is something I really don't want to have to do....

    You could cut two squash balls in half and use those under the dvd player.

    B&Q. buy some large, chrome or stainless steel rings used to seal pipes. Sand down the sharp edges.

    You can also buy cabinet feet from places like Maplin (for example http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=33244&doy=22m9).
    I use some cupboard fittings (white plastic cuboids with 2 screw holes on two sides and one at right angles through the other sides) to push my TeleWest box off the top of the VCR to improve ventilation. Not pretty but you can't see it so I don't care.

    Take a walk in any diy store, near the plumbing you can buy all sizes of rubber washes for pennies.
