Do you have any recommendations regarding the ‘air-space’ around a stacked DSJr and BHK Pre? Unfortunately I have limited space and if I purchase the BHK PreAmp then it will have to be stacked on top of my DSJr. The two would sit on a shelf in a wooden entertainment center. I’d have about 5-6 inches on each side, about 3-4″ above the stacked pair. The center has a closed back but with numerous air holes (which I can drill more if necessary) and a totally open air front (no doors or glass).
I’ve read a number of posts in these Forums about people experiencing a very hot DSJr, but I have never had this experience. I find the DSJr runs maybe just a little warm compared to other audio components, but nothing really out of ordinary. So I don’t foresee an issue there.
Being the BHK Pre houses tubes should I be concerned about the low clearance headroom above the unit and the closed back (though with air holes) of the entertainment center? Does PSA have any minimal recommendations on ventilation in general or specifically for the BHK Pre?
Thank you in advance,
