    Hi there I have just picked up a Yamaha YHT-299 home theater 5.1 system.
    The thing is the shelf space in the entertainment unit is too narrow for it just. Is it okay to remove the YHT-299 plastic feet off it?

    If the YHT-299 has ventilation holes in the bottom and you are blocking these by removing the feet then you may have overheating issues.

    That's true - but of all of the Yamaha amps/receivers I've owned over the years, I've yet to see one with ventilation underneath the unit. All are on top.

    Could be wrong here though, I haven't seen a pic of this model yet.

    Sorry the system was 299 model the receiver is YHT-3066.

    It has all ventilation at the top.
    At the top there is a little gap when take the feet off.

    how much clearance will there be?

    how hot does it run?

    i know my Onkyo 875 (aka "the heater") gets very hot after a few hours use, and i have ~ 15cm clearance on all sides (other than the bottom of course)

    It has about a centimeter gap. I ran it all day yesterday to test and it was just warm not hot at all.
    Has side vents as well
