maybe this link will work better http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-CLN0008-Massive23-Aluminum-Notebook/dp/B002JM1RKO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352992876&sr=8-1&keywords=Thermaltake+CLN0008+Massive23+CS+23cm+Aluminum+Notebook+Cooler

This is what I've seen as a good fan cooling add-on: http://www.coolerguys.com/compcooling.html . It sits horizontally on top of your component, with two fans to draw the heat up. I don't have one (have a cooled rack), but it seems like the right tool.

I thank you so much cableBandit and rplotkin for the information. I ordered the Thermaltake.

Used TX-NR3010 at amazon for a good price. Is it safe to buy or should I wait a bit longer?

I remember JoeRod mentioning that he bought a NR5009 from Amazon Warehouse Deals. He wrote that it was brand new, but I think he also stated that the box it came in was roughed up. I called OneCall about the open box NR3010 that they are selling and they told me that the box was roughed up, so they opened it up to make sure that none of the content was damaged. I guess some of these open box and used items might just come in a box that was somewhat damaged during shipping to the store. It's really up to you if you want to take a chance. Btw, the OneCall NR3010 has the full manufacturer's warranty, and it's also listed on the Amazon website, for slightly more than the Amazon Warehouse Deals one.

Yeah, I stumbled on that thread as well and I thought he got lucky. My concern is after the 30 day policy if the system decided to crap out you know? I did a chat with OneCall and they wouldn't budge on the price
either and that's the difference, they have the full warranty regardless of its status as long as you bought from them. I just think that's a really good price but might come with issues.....still on the fence....Thanks for the input.

Usually if there is an issue with a warehouse deal it happens the first few minutes you turn it on. smile.gif

I got my replacement mic (thanks, joerod) and gave it a go. It worked like a charm (towers set to 40 Hz, center to 50 Hz, and surrounds to 60 Hz). Also, it did a better job of equalizing the sound than the mic that came with my 705. The receiver has never sounded better.

Now I've finally been able to get good results using other features such as Audyssey Dynamic Volume. It's really come in handy that certain tweaks like the reference level can be adjusted per input rather than globally on the 5010.

Thanx but that was for YAMAHA receivers.
post #731 of 1066
I was completely mistaken about the problem in my RN 5010. The technician made a lot of tests and discovered that the issue was in the internal central channel. He took the receiver and my central speaker, because he thinks it may be the origin of the fault. What is weird is when he tried the central speaker alone, plugging it in the place of the front speaker. it played without any noise. What are the possible causes for an issue with an internal channel? Thanks for the information.
post #732 of 1066
Not positive with the Thermaltake fan, but it looks like you'll want to turn it upside down (b/c it's made for a laptop to sit on top of it).
post #733 of 1066
My receiver is placed in a rack with plenty of space above and sideways. The cooler will serve to cut short the high temperature of the Onkyo, placing the cooler on top of it, as it was suggested.

you hope it does

does these "warehouse" deals come with an Onkyo factory warranty?

If not...there would have to be a HUGE discount for me to buy an Onkyo without a warranty

high temperature of the Onkyo?

Wasnt there talk here that these new units dont run like last years( or years prior)?

why do you need a fan?

I have a 5009 and have had several others in the past..875..905....some of the old could fry an egg...lol

I havent used the 5009 enough to know...however I can say its gets a lot hotter than the Yamaha A2000 it replaced

I think the 5009 run as hot as the 5010, because, from what I read here, the main difference between them is the support for 11.2 speakers. But I had receivers as Yamaha and Denon before and they don't get as hot as the Onkyo. I had an issue with mine, as I told in my last post, and don't know if it's related to the heat. That's why I'm going to use the external fan.

I agree with you

The Onkyos run hotter than any other receivers I have had as well

But there was a couple of people earlier in this thread that swore that the 5010 was a "changed" product

I question that..frankly

Anyone run into this issue before on a 3010. Have 7.1 surround sound setup, F L C SL SR SBL SBR and have zone 2. In the setup Zone 2 is set for yes, and Zone 3 set for no. If I play music over Zone 2, the receiver resets itself and powers down. I have to press the on button on front of the receiver itself to bring it back online, and a message on the screen of the AVR say Chk Spkr Wire. Now the 7.1 has no issues that I have detected. So to rule out that it is a poor wiring issue I take the wires connected to my left an right, and hook them up to speakers going for Zone 2. Same problem reset and power down. If I take my left and right channel and feed my Zone 2 speakers I have no issues, only when Zone 2 is actually connected. I used Oremote and Onkyo remote for Android and this is how I discovered it after the programs were non-responsive. Any thoughts?
post #739 of 1066
maybe just unhook the wires..and the re connect and see if you get the same issue

I had this issue on an Onkyo years ago and the wires..I think ..was touching the other one

Now that my mic woes are out of the way. I have a question on the picture adjustments. Most of the stuff is self explanatory but what patterns can I use to take advantage of the color brightness and color contrast settings? Will the patterns on AVS HD 709 do the trick?
post #741 of 1066
Thanks Warren, an update happened at the same time, and I did rehook up all my wires. Problem seems to have disappeared.
post #742 of 1066
Fortunately the issue with my Onkyo was minor and the unit is back to work. I placed the notebook's cooler on top of it, in reverse, and the temperature of the receiver definitely came down. Hope it keeps on for a long, long time.
post #743 of 1066
I believe I found my answer, but just to clarify. The wides must be run with an external amp, and the internal amps are always hot, so I can run a 7 channel amp to power the front, heights, and wides, and internal for sides and rear?

I don't think I want to drop over 1k w/ no factory warranty. Plus some of these Onkyo's issue doesn't show until a few months of use. Just hard to take a gamble...

That would be nice if it does but if it happens after a few months then i'm screwed...eek.gif

I know this is the 3010/5010 thread but I'm on the fence about upgrading right now between the 1010 and 3010. Is there a substantial increase in difference between the two? I can get the 3010 for about $600 off while the 1010 is $400 off from their msrp. Any help is appreciated.
post #748 of 1066
I know there is no amp assign function, but can the 3010 be used in 11.2 mode using external amplification...and at the same time control a second zone with a 2 channel amp using pre outs?

How many channels are you going to use? If you want 9.x and do not want to use an external amp then you need to get the 3010. If you are stopping at 7.x or lower, get the 1010.

Just a note saying my 3010 is running and his having no problems at all. smile.gif
