Since it has pre-outs(and a phono input), I'm thinking of using it as a pre-pro, if the DSPs and DACs are top flight. I'd like to get the 32 bit DACs, but they were only on the 5007 in last year models.
But, it has to go in a cabinet, so does anybody know if it has the fan like the 608? I just installed a 608 in a cabinet with 1" headroom for my parents, and it is not getting hot at all, even in the cabinet.
Or, is it a significant advantage for pre-pro usage to get a receiver with balanced outputs?
