I posted this over in the denon forum, a fews week ago.
"Also, I'd just like to post that after watching a movie using 5.1, my unit, 2113CI measured with an IR Thermometer was roughly 118F, and this was measured from the top of the unit, I have a built in that has about 4-5 inchies of clearance, also its very deep with maybe 10 inches or more of empty space behind the receiver, so its not a cramp area, I was able to get a good measurement through the top vents. The hottest part was just left of center move a little more to the left or right, and it drops to 110F."
I was thinking my unit was getting to hot but the guys in the Denon forum didn't see any issue. The Denon manual doesn't list the operating temperature so it's hard to know what to expect.Edited by dbailey75 - 9/4/12 at 11:54am
