    I have a 20-39cs right now. Eventually gonna get another one, but no idea when.

    Anyways, when I watch movies the Parts Express amp is great. When I listen to music at kinda loud volumes (-45 on my Yamaha rx-v1200) it will overheat and shut off after an hour or so. Is this common? Or could I have an issue I don't know about?

    I'll probably get a Samson s700 regardless, I'm just hoping they don't overheat as easy.

    Just for curiousity's sake, have you thought of directing a fan on the PE amp's heat sinks while playing loudly and seeing if the PE amp still shuts down after an hour or so under heavy usage?

    I have, but space is kind of cramped.
