    I've just bought a region-free Blu-Ray player. Yay! But I don't have any more shelf space available on my audio rack. I do have room, though, to place one Blu-Ray player on top of another (or on top of a DVD player). Is this a safe thing to do? The players don't seem to give off much heat, so I'd think it's OK. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    There should be no issues with stacking two players. I have been doing it for many years in my equipment rack with no problems. Usually the only device in your rack that can generate enough heat to be an issue is the receiver, as the amps can put out quite a bit of heat, depending on the model.

    Can't agree with this. I have several devices that get plenty hot enough to warrant concern: Dish DVR AppleTV (1st gen) Roku Video Player Basically, if the devices don't get warm to the touch, you should be fine. If something gets warm, but not hot, make sure it has decent airflow available and you should be okay.
