Hello everybody, I've recently purchased a Denon avc-a10se & poa-t10 (in gold) to replace my yammy dspa3090. To celebrate the delight of my new equipment I custom built a pine cupboard (with doors) to house the new amps and my pioneer dvd & laserdisc players (cld 925/717). The kit looks absolutely great and sounds even better. (I've just watched/listened to U-571 in DTS and JP in DD). My main concenrn is how hot the avc-a10 seems to be getting. After an hour or so the front panel is very hot. The temperature has nothing to do with volume since after watching the above two films continuosly and very LOUDLY it was no hotter than when I use my playstation running through the amp for an hour (at very moderate volumes). Further info is that I have the doors open and the back has a larger square hole cut for ventilation reasons. There is about a 5cm gap above and each side of the amp (which is on the top internal shelf). I am wondering whether Denon amps just get hotter than others, if I'm being over sensitive or if my lovely cupboard is too small. I am looking for comments/observations that could put my mind at rest or offer some kind of guidance or suggestions.
