Looking to upgrade my Denon AVR 1802 system, which powers Polk 800i towers, center and subwoofer. It has been housed in a wood shelf unit that has at most an inch clearance on top, but open to the front and back with 4-6 inches of clearance on the sides. As I have never had overheating issues with the 1802, I’m inclined to stay with Denon.
Will the 1611/1911 run similarly cool as my 1802?
I'm researching current models and reading through the benefits of Audyssey, MCACC and YPAO, so any opinions on the relative heat of similar Pioneer and Yamaha models would be appreciated as well.
