I am leaning heavily to picking up the Onkyo 696 tomorrow to replace my current receiver. Currently, I live in an old house with my roommates (college student) and have my theater downstairs in a room that can get very very warm and humid. I don't want to open the windows because there are no screens, and there is no air conditioner in that room. I would imagine the room can get up to 90 and above pretty easily. So my question is how does the humidity/heat affect my equipment. Should I be concerned? The alternative option would be to move all my stuff up to my air conditioned room but I don't necessarily want to take all that stuff away from my roommates. I also don't want to have to replace a $600 receiver right after a warranty expires because the heat/humidity wore it down after time. I appreciate any of your opinions. I also realize that most electronics run hotter than the air temperature anyway.
