I don't currently have a heat gun(thinking of getting a cheap one)
I realize current receivers have DSP and other chips that makes them possibly run warmer.
I’m wondering if there are processors that run cooler than the Denon I have. Anyone find a solution to this problem.
I don't know your budget, but Datasat LS10 and Rs20i have thermostatically controlled cooling fans. You can find either on the used market.
