the fan will cool no doubt.it wil also suck dust in like mad.check out the inside of an old pc. believe me they get nasty inside.I have an onkyo enclosed in a cabinet but it has plenty of space for circulation. I am going to buy a cabinet fan for added precaution.
Not a good idea, your reveiver will overheat.Is there any kind of cover maybe I can get to cover the receiver while it is on? Something real thin, maybe like a filter that I can use to prevent the dust from going inside?
i kinda agree.the last one i had to dust out was over 20 years old.someone in this thread mentioned using a cooling fan.in that case some dusting every so often.probably will become necessary.You guys are making the dust issue way to big a deal. Ive had my 805 out in the open for almost 5 years now and still have no visable dust inside of it and have never blown it out.
oh yeah no problem adding a fan.i was merely saying be aware.it will cause alot more dust than normal.I dust my equipment off once every three to four weeks anyway so I should not have an issue anyway. I just want to add the fan as an additional precaution for heat that's all.
