Marantz SR5008 standby heat.
Chris from Pickering Ontario here. I am new to the forum, this will be my first post.
I just upgraded my 12 year old sony Amp with a SR5008. This will be used mainly for my home theatre. It is in a cabinet with about 4" of air space above and gets crazy hot just in standby. Hotter when on even at minimal volume levels. I am going to add a couple cooling fans in the cabinet to cool her down.
My Sony amp never gets warm when powered off and never gets this hot even with volume up high.
Is this anything to worry about? Is it normal for this brand? I will put an bolt meter on her tomorrow to see how many watts she is using when powered but based on the heat output it's gotta be a lot.
