    How does it behave?

    Specially in Stereo!

    Compared to similar priced models, like Marantz, NAD and Denon?

    I can't tell you how it compares to those other brands, but I'm very happy with mine.. it has taken my music listening to a new level.

    Didn't you compare before you buy?

    Does it get too hot?

    I didn't compare, partly because I was so happy with the 540R's sound, and partly because disconnecting and reconnecting an A/V receiver is a long, arduous task the way my system is setup, and as I don't drive going back and forth to RS isn't that easy.

    It does get very hot, but I have just about enough space around it.

    I have a cambridge since 3 months and I am globally happy. Oh there are a few little defaults but it is a good machine with soft sound, plaisant and power enough to do music and home theather in 45 m². I have the couple Cambridge audio azur 540R - 540D in association with wharfedale pacific evolution 30, center. Before, it was an onkyo and oud Bose 401. Now, it s completely diffrent sound but very exciting.
    Sorry for my bad english

    Does it get hot?

    I Think that in UK the little different bug have to be eliminate. In analogic connection, you have a little "clic" between the tracks on cd reading. and a message appears on the display of the reveiver : "unlock".
    With the remote, you must change source by source to find the right source. dvd,video1,video2,tuner,cd,...thus many clic on the remote....

    It spanks my Marantz SR5300's arse in stereo and has a much cleaner sound in DD DTS formats. Voices are more audible and less muddy. I used to have an Arcam amp and this is right up there with it for stereo (compared to the Marantz). :smashin:
