While somewhat relative, the newer Onkyos do run cooler. I owned an 805 and 875 and while both were used exclusively as SSP's, they still ran pretty hot. All the same, both were sold to close friends are are still going strong. My TX-NR3008 runs a good bit cooler than either the 805/875 and all reports that the newer Onkyo's run cooler still.
When you are running a AV Receivers as a processor only aren't your amps still running and consuming electricity? If so that would account for the heat. What would be nice is if you could turn off the power to the power amps entirely and just use the processor if desired.

+1 for the Onkyo , IMO has more bang for the buck


Also Onkyo is famous for its excellent sound qualities; Often sounding like more expensive equipment for less cash. Can't go too wrong there.
