Rega Brio-R heat
This weekend I finally got my new amp warmed up with some decent volume levels (for reference about 10 or 11 o'clock)
Playing via my V-Dac it sounded great— Premiers Symptomes blew me away — and OK Computer had stuff in the mix I had never heard before.
The amp sits in on a shelf with about an inch clearance above it — and it was decidedly hot after an extended listening session.
Hot as in "if I press my hands either side it gets uncomfortable after a few seconds"
I figure that the small chassis is going to get a fair bit warmer — but the power output is 50W so I was expecing it to stay cool based on my speakers being reasonably easy to drive (I presume they are)
So what is hot and what is warm for this amp?
