Shallow Depth Receiver Needed?

I recently purchased a home that is wired for multi-zone tv and sound. The living room has wires for 5 speakers a TV mount above the fireplace with an HDMI and coaxial cables. The dining room is wired for a TV mount above the fireplace with HDMI and coaxial cables. There are two speakers on the outside patio. Everything is wired to run from an open, built-in shelf in the living room. The biggest problem I have encountered is that the shelf for the receiver is only 10" deep! I can't find a system that will fit.

Any thoughts, suggestions and help is greatly appreciated!

Taking into account about 2" for cable connections, that means a receiver with an 8" depth. What is the height of the shelf and is there an open back for proper ventilation? Suggest you find a new location for the receiver.

Thanks for your response!

The shelf is adjustable height. Right now it is set at about 24". Since it's already wired for that location, I really don't want to spend the money to rewire it elsewhere.

Can you take a picture? It may be possible to install a larger shelf.
