    hi, my CA azur 540A seems to chuck out an awful lot of heat, and it always seems to turn itself off in protection. is there any advice anyone can give me on this? cheers

    Mine runs hot as well but there is about 10cm of free space above the amp and also nothing behind so it can breathe.

    BTW, do you have the "Unlock" bug with a very brief tic sound when you change track on a DVD?

    well i dont have a dvd on it, only the 640C cd deck. but it just turned itself off again and it didnt even get warm! this is quite frustrating as i like to have my music loud and not need to keep flicking the switch at the plug!

    Then your unit may be faulty.

    About the tick sound, it usually appears when connected with a Digital cable (coax or optic), but there shouldn't be any problem if you use RCA analogic cables.

    ok so took it back today, replaced it straight off, they said my speakers are pushing the amp too hard, so replaced it with a 640A sounds better already, although cant turn it up yet, doh!
