And also how is this hotness when compared to the SRM-313 which I've found to stay nothing but cool apart from when heated by its background (by a nearby speaker amp).

Is the hotness evenly spread or do certain parts get hotter than others?

I'm considering upgrading from the 313 to the 717.. trying to find somewhere to fit the mamoth amp compared to the rather tiny 313 is a slight issue.

I'm hoping it'll work well with the Omega IIs and HE60s.

Cheers

Jim

When using my 717 in a room with no air conditioner, on a typical summer evening, the top can get to hot to touch comfortably, while the front panel just gets warm. So even if your environment is relatively cool, I would still make certain that this amp gets enough ventilation.
