    Hi,

    How much of a gap (from top of amp to shelf above) would you say would be the minimum space required for an AV amp. I have the Pioneer Ax5i (not that this should make any difference)?

    Cheers

    Jon,

    I am sure you have seen Pioneer's recommendation (on page 2)[60cm above, 10cm rear & 30 cm either side] I hope they meant mm & not cm!!!

    Anyway, IMHO an inch top & sides should be OK, just make sure you have plenty of space at the rear where the fan is.

    Regards,

    B.

    Jon, click on the link in my signature and you can see exactly how much space there is around my AX5i.
    It does get warm on the top (as does the underside of the unit) but nothing to worry about.
