Anywho... are they just a disposable item now?
AVR's and amps need a lot of space around them since they generate a lot of heat. If kept in an enclosed cabinet, That heat has nowhere to evacuate creating an oven type environment. They'll slowly bake and melt the insides reducing it's life expectancy considerably.
