    Just jumped into the world of PJ's and would like to place my brand new toy on a shelf at the back of the room.

    How big would the shelf need to be?
    i.e. how much space do I need to leave behind the Z1 for the exhaust vents?

    Thanks for the help.

    Welcome, the Z1 vents out of the side so can be placed pretty much right up against the wall (cables forgiving ;) ).

    That should allow plenty of clearance.

    Well actually the Z1 vents from both the side and back, however the back vent gets much hotter than the side one, so I would leave a min of 30cm.

    Hope that clears it up a bit.
