    I have a Yamaha RX-V450 AV receiver and a Samsung HD-935 DVD player.

    I plan to place the AV receiver on the top of the DVD player due to space constraints. Does anyone know whether this will negatively affect the DVD player due to the receiver's considerable weight?

    Thanks.

    Well the other option would be to put the receiver at the bottom but that would close its air vents on its top - looks like I'm stuck..... :(

    just off the top of my head is there not some way you could sit the dvd on say some large wooden spikes to give the amp say 25mm top clearance for ventilation?
