Does API 2500 getting hot ?

Little question; does the API 2500 compressor needs space above the unit ? Or can u built it between 2 units in the 19 inch rack ?

It gets very hot - i burned out an op amp by not leaving a space.

Funny, mine does not get very hot at all! Only thing I come to think of is that I am on 230v, but that should not make a difference.

Gets hot. Turn it off when not in use, imo.

the one at vindaloo would seriously burn down the building, plus it was in a VERY hot Neve frame.

nah, it's in use a lot. it's got room to breathe in a well ventilated rack, but lukewarm is all. could this be different PSUs?
It's not hot like my Focusrite or the pair of Sonorus converters I used to have.

i had no idea some 2500's ran cool, i'm jealous. the thing is by far the hottest piece in my rack, if i didn't know better i'd swear there were tubes hidden in there. although the fatso gets really toasty too.
