While maybe not as convenient, any sort of small fan at the side or behind pushing even the slightest breeze through the gap between the two units should be MORE than sufficient cooling for them considering the case is all aluminum.

Thanks - I might find some good looking spacers.

My thoughts leap to Solude that stated he wanted the Mjolnir to get hotter. 

 

Yep, my components get quite warm as well. Could've been the Tasmanian winter when I first got the amp but the Mjolnir seemed to only get as warm as the Bifrost I had at the time. Now, after a while it approaches Lyr levels of heat emission. Could also be the Gungnir stacked below the amp compounding it. The dac's pretty much been on 24/7 since I got it.

Very nice stack of Schiit, Loevhagen!

just ordered my s̶t̶u̶f̶f̶,̶ er, schiit. May use a boxer fan from another enclosed system if needed. probably site M&G on separate shelves given the resounding responses on how hot this schiit runs...

I initially didn't find the Mjolnir or Gungnir to run warm, but they do run damn hot.

Due to the cooling properties of aluminum, a small desktop fan would work wonders.  One of those USB based ones that provide a slight breeze would probably be more than enough.  The problem is that small gap between them when stacked where the air MIGHT get trapped if there is no air flow.  A light breeze and that problem is eliminated.

As is your low noise floor.

It's not necessary any ways.  Jason / Alex have said multiple times stacking is OK and average room temperature.  I'm just saying if someone is concerned about it, but then again, pros / cons.

Isn't the Mjolnir Class A/B? 

 

Anyway I don't find the Mjolnir to run hot at all. The Schiit Lyr easily ran hotter by a long shot. However mine has nothing stacked on it and lots of ventilation all around the amp.

Heat is not abnormal and should not concern anyone. This discussion was in response to Solude wanting the Mjolnir to be a nuclear furnace.

The heat is from the G/M stacked. It was pretty hot when I had them stacked. The Bryston and Gungnir are a no go for stacking even with spacer blocks. The Bryston's volume knob gets too hot to touch so I have them side by side on my desk now.

ORLY?  That's exciting news.  I assumed Bryston would have gone with pre-amp like bias.  Hmm interesting.
