    I just got my cd player and I want to know if there would be any adverse affects if I stacked the receiver on top of it. My components are not top of the line if that makes a difference, so I don't think minute quality degradation should be a problem. I know you should have plenty of room for the receiver to vent heat, and I am limited on space to this but I don't want anything "bad" to happen to the receiver or the cd player. Any help is appreciated.

    I would advise against this for two reasons. First receivers tend to be fairly heavy. Second, the receiver will put out considerable heat, which would be bad for the CD player.

    I agree with Ken. IMO, receivers should never be stacked with another component, either above or below.

    Thanks for the info guys. I checked and I can actually put my cd unit under my dvd player if i lower the shelf a little bit. This is actually better than my previous plan. Anything wrong with this idea?
