Question about Televison & Video
Yes, heat could easily force a sudden shutdown of the receiver, but i don't think this is your case here - the volume of the sound should be very high, for a long period, to overheat the unit this much. Installing an extra fan and lowering the master volume should fix it. If it doesn't then my guess is most likely true.
My guess is that all of this has a different cause: when the sound spikes the amplifier is overstressed and draws a very high current from the source (or at least is trying to); the source of the receiver can't deliver it so the output voltage drops; the protection inside the source reads the drop as caused by a short and shuts down the source = the receiver shuts down.
The power source must be checked and the aged parts (the capacitors mainly) must be replaced.
