Question about Receiver - Onkyo TX-SR600 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
They run WARM but not hot unless you give it 1" clearance which would mean you deserve to have it blow.
ANYWAY give the yamaha neo a try.

And I have had an Onkyo 506,606 and currently a rc260 (608). My brother has a 607.

Yep, my 603 also runs hot. It's just how they are.

Same...my 603 and 605 both run hot, and they have adequate ventilation.
It's just the nature of the beast.

8 ohms at what frequency? If the speakers have a poor efficiency then it will require more power

Hah, mine does not run warm, it runs HOT!

I had to make this youtube video after the first time I had my unit repaired. Look how much clearance my receiver has:



It runs so hot that I've had to replace the HDMI card twice.

Please read some of the complaints from AVSforum:

I am not saying that all of the 506/606/608 receivers have issues, but they have a high failure rate. High heat causes the HDMI Daughterboard to go bad. Reading the complaints in various forums, I wouldn't be surprised if 40% of those models had to be replaced within the first two years.

You can't judge an amp by how cool it runs. The cool cat usually has may have less idle current biasing and thus operates more intoClass B than in AB, or it may be a digital amp which can often lead to lower fidelity due to added distortion or noise. The amps with large heatsinks, big linear power supplies, and multiple cascaded output devices tend to run hotter because they are biased heavily into Class A operation usually ensuring better overall performance while sacrificing efficiency and generating lots of heat as a penalty. Never buy an amp based solely on sheer power. Never trade power for compromised noise floor unless your only objective is sound reinforcement!
