    4 inches / 100mm to be safe, a problem with recessed mounting is difficulty of access for the side pins for removal

    Did you consult the operating manual? On page 6 it states "leave a space of 10 cm (4 inches) on top, bottom, and sides, and 1.9 cm (3/4 inches) or more at rear."

    Or if you add fans you could reduce this further.

    But... Fans and a good A/V system don't mix. And, you'd have to know how much heat and what rate of fans to use.

    It's just that I've always wondered about the possiblity of venting to another room, thereby keeping the noice level in the viewing room low.

    All the best,

    Dr John Sim.
