To be honest, I think the only concern you'll have is maybe the airflow from convective heating/cooling may be affected, since the air won't be rising out the "top", it will go out the side.
I don't believe there is anything electro-mechanical in the receiver that requires horizontal installation, but I've never tried it with any of my receivers. The manual does not state horizontal placement is required, but maybe it just assumes it.
If you do set it on its side, make sure you put it on "feet" or something to get it off the surface, to allow air in the side that is now the bottom. And don't put it on carpet.
IMHO, AFAIK, IIRC, YMMV, yadda yadda...
