    I bought a new reciever earlier this week. When I was unpacking it i noticed there was a small piece of styrofoam
    stuck under one of the sink holes. I tried to get it out but it fell into the reciever. Could this cause any damage like a fire? I've used for a couple of days with no problem but am wondering if I should return it or not.

    Just for safety's sake and sanity I would take it back to the manufacturer and have the styrofoam piece taken out.

    What kind of receiver? That's some pretty shoddy packaging if a piece of styrofoam fell inside it. And, yes, I'd exchange the unit. You paid for a non-contaminated receiver.

    It is a yamaha HTR 5660 a fairly new reciever. I got it at best buy. Hope they dont give me a hard time about it as they have started charging restocking fees.
