Thanks jomari,kingofgrills and fors* for your input. I think it bodes well for me then, as I can get the onkyo cheaper.

I do like my music loud once in a while, but won't be running them at full whack all the time...

I saw earlier while researching, someone had connected a computer fan via 12v trigger and placed it on the vent of his receiver to help with cooling. I guess I can do this in addition to good spacing to help cool the unit. I have read onkyos are known to run hot generally so any additional cooling can only help.
Just don't know how distracting the fan noise will be as I assume it will always be on while the receiver is on.
