    I recently bought the RX-V640 and the receiver gets hot on the top of the case. When it gets warm to hot the top part of the case where the vents are have a spongy type feel to it when I press down on the top of the case. Is it normal?

    Define "spongy" :)

    Well, it's normal for it to get warm. It shouldn't be hot enough to hurt to the touch. Any other signs of overheating?
    Does it ever shut itself off?

    By the word spongy, I mean it feels soft.

    I dont think the top is serving as of primary support structure. Its more like cover. It should fairly flex if you press it hard. The base of the receiver I think is the primary support structure.
