Question about Pioneer VSX-D711 Receiver
Is this dangerous??? We can still get surround sound and everything appears to be working. The Device is extremely hot and there is nothing on top of it.
Generally speaking heat is a byproduct of the amp working too hard. This can be caused by speakers that are not matched correctly to the amp. In other words using 4ohm speakers on an amp that is expecting an 8ohm load. If this is a new occurrance, than look for speaker wires that have frayed and are somewhat crossed. From the amp's perspective this will look like a low ohm load. The amp may continue to function correctly, but work extremely hard and generate excessive heat. This will untimately damage the amp. Check the speaker wires first.
Also, does this occur even at low volumes? If so, this again points to a short in the wires or speakers themselves.
Please update this with what you find.

No this is not dangerous! What is happening is the speakers are useing more power from the amp then say a smaller set of speakers would use! this can also be caused by high volume!
(You can place a small fan to blow on the amp to help keep the heat down) It may blow a fuse in the amp but you are in no danger yourself! (heat is not good for the health of any electronics)
