i have an 01. i changed around my setup. i put the 01 in an open stand, with my BD player on top.
this 01 only runs my 2 small sided (fronts = XPA-3). last night after a movie, i noticed the 01 was pretty hot.
just wondering if anyone has noticed the heat ?
I've had many Pioneer avr's over the years. 1014, 59txi, 94txh, 2 sc-27's, 2 sc-25's an sc-37 a vsx-23, vsx-03, vsx-24, sc-75 and a couple I'm sure I've forgotten about, and none of them ever got more then warm. I did a temperature test with the vsx-23 a while back. Put a thermometer on top of it and hooked up 8 ohm, 6 ohm and 4 ohm speakers for two hours apiece. the 8 ohms ran 95 degrees, the 6 ohms 105 and the 4 ohms 115.
An Integra 8.9 I had ran so hot in Standby I had to un-plug it when not in use.
BTW, the processing section causes at least as much heat as the amp sections, or so I've been told.
