    A friend has asked me to research an AV receiver for her new home. She has all the speakers installed in walls and ceilings and has all the wires running to the inside of a cabinet. However, the cabinet is only 10" deep. Are there any receivers that can for in this cabinet? Thanks!

    How about something like this, nice and thin but good sound quality, don't pay too much attention to the watts output, this receiver will be powerful enough to deliver very high quality sound and it runs cool which is i think is important if being placed in a cabinet.

    I assume by "deep", they mean front to back...and not height?

    Hopefully I'm wrong as I know of no 10" deep AVR.

    Allowing approximately 2½ inches for rear panel cables, that leaves 7½ inches of space for the AVR. There are no AVRs that small. The only component that may fit in such a small space is something along the lines of a Yamaha stereo mini-receiver with sub output: http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visual/hifi-systems/crx-332_b/?mode=model

    On the spec page it states - Dimensions (W x H x D) 7-1/8" × 4-5/8" × 12-1/2" so the mini appears to be too deep.

    I think that would then rule out any of them, perhaps a new cabinet is needed instead.
