    I'm just wondering if something is wrong with my receiver. Even for about 1 hour of low listening level with just stereo, the receiver gets warm. Even out in the open it is still warm but not hot hot, just noticeably warm. Is this normal?

    This is normal for most any receiver/amplifier. Heat is a byproduct of amplification.

    Yes it is. I have the same receiver and leave it on all the time; even when it's only been on and I haven'tplayed stuff for 8-10 hours it's still warm.

    Ok thanks for the confirmation guys. My Yamaha HTR5450, however, doesn't get as warm as the AVR320. I just had to make sure.
