Heat is fine as long as you are not melting anything inside, keep 6 inches clearance on top and 3 inches on the side with 6inches in the back and you will be fine.
My seven year old Integra Research made by Onkyo works like a charm and I use it every day at least four hours a day during the week and over 10 hours a day on weekend. This translate to about 13,440 hours of playing RDC7 pre/pro and it is still working like a charm.
