    I'm looking at getting one of these but I need to check whether it will fit in the space I've got in my TV unit.

    The 1906 is listed ias being 147mm tall on the Denon website but I want to know if this includes the round feet as I guess they would quite an extra bit of height. The space I've got is approx 157mm so I've not got much room to play with..!

    Would any 1906 owners mind measuring the height of the unit (including the feet)??

    The tight space does throw up concerns about heat build up but the unit will be open on all sides (just not much vertical space).

    cheers.

    Hi there

    Not sure about if the feet are included in the height. Would it not be a fairly simple task to just remove the feet? :eek:

    the feet are there for an important purpose to create a breathing space between amp and the ground.it's really not advisable to do this.you would be better emailing denon and asking them direct.

    Its 147mm including the feet,but it runs fairly warm so I would ensure plenty of ventilation all round.

    <b>Bogeyed </b> - have you actually measured it?

    I had thought about the possibility of removing the feet but had presumed they would permanently attached...

    if the space you are going to put the amp in is that tight, you will effectively melt the internals of the amp.
    These things are designed to be ventilated, not closed in.

    it sounds like you need to buy a very slimline amp so it will fit with some ventilation, or if not buy and amp that is designed to work without needing ventilation (usually means it isnt very powerful...lol)

    Hmm - like I said the amp is open on all other sides so will vertical clearance really be that much of an issue?

    Yes-I did measure it,you seem to be a bit tight above the unit,much less than I would have thought desirable-as mentioned earlier I would not remove the feet,they are there to maintain ventilation around the unit.

    Cheers for confirming bogeyed.

    Nemeliza - no need to be so flippant. I was asking a genuine question.

    I was expressing the need for vertical clearance in a way that i thought was 'harmless' but clear.

    Offending you was not my aim and i apologise if thats the message i communicated to you.
