Denon 500sd , Fan question


Novice Member
Does anyone know if the fan in the back of the 500sd runs all the time or just when its needed. I was installing a new HD network player for my mum & dad and noticed that the 500sd was very hot, checked the fan and it wasnt blowing, kept checking it over a 10 minute period and it never came on. They only really use it as an amp so the dvd never gets used , does the fan only run when playing dvd's or should it be running all the time ?.

If my memory serves me correctly the Denon fan kicks in when you have the volume at 45 and above. Although I can understand that you think it seems to run hot if the fan does kick in as I described I would think it's operating as designed and within the designed parameters.

I've had my DHT 500 for two years and had no problems and reckon it's an A+ class piece of kit.
