    Hello all!
    Simple question, is this new receiver fan cooled?
    Cheers, Paul.

    I believe so – not 100%. Why? Worried about the noise?

    Thanks for the replys. I've currently got a AVR 3300 which does have a fan & although hardly noticable..it is! I've got a 3802 on order & am v. excited, just wired my Sky+ box to my current receiver & things sound good already, with DPL2 things can only get better!
    Cheers, Paul.

    I`ve noticed it runs cool aswell, i had mine at very high volumes for a couple of hours and it was barely warm.

    Hi guys,

    Talking of the cooling aspect of the 3802, I have downloaded the instruction manual whilst waiting before they came in stock.

    On digesting the endless pages the first few pages refer to the set up.

    On this Denon recommend that about 4" of space is required around the unit for cooling. Do you guys actually follow this rule, or have you hooked up your amps in hifi cabinets?

    I just wondered otherwise I might have to rearrange the furniture again. :D

    Hi guys,

    Thanks Carlos for putting on the URL, sorry I've not logged on the site until this morning, so I didn't see Duncans request.

    Any answers on the cooling front? I'm going to get my amp within the month now, and was hoping to place it in a cabinet just as my Kenwood KRV888 is at present.

    Any placement experiences greatly appreciated!!

    :D

    Are you sure it has no fans? Both the A1SE and the A11SR have fans so I'd be surprised if the 3802 had none.

    Like I said I've currently got the 3300 & I did have problems with it overheating when I had less than the specified clearance. I increased the clearance as per the manual & had no further trouble.
    Cheers, Paul.

    I`ve just measured and the gap above mine is about 2 and a half inches as i said before i have run it at very high levels for a couple of hours and it was barely warm.
    so i don`t think overheating should be a problem.

    Cheers Carlos

    Thanks lads,

    The 3802 definately does not include a cooling fan at the rear of its heat sinks, I've seen enough detailed piccies including internals to confirm that much.

    I will try to gain as much space as possible around the amp, but it will be placed in a wife friendly furniture cabinet, which makes it awkward to make allowances for all the kit.

    Me thinks one of my cherished black boxes will have to be relegated to another position
    if I encounter overheating. We'll have to wait and see.
    Once I've got it installed, I'll let you guys know.

    Got one in a little room 3ft from my listening position. The only noise comes out of the loudspeakers. In stock at superfi.co.uk £629.

    Hello all!
    Going off at a bit of a tangent I know but is the standard warranty offered on this receiver 3 years?
    Cheers, Paul.
