Dustcover for MC275 and VPI Scoutmaster?

I was wondering what the general consensus was on putting a dustcover over my amps and tt? I'm concerned with the heat from the amps. I would appreciate any advise on them if you have any opinions, either way!
Thank you!
I am using a Gingko plinth top dustcover on my Scout and it works fine. Looks nice too.
I recommend a dustcover for your Scoutmaster. It will help protect your stylus directly by preventing unauthorized touching and fiddling, and indirectly by you not having to dust off the turntable from time to time. As for the amps, also a good idea as long as you take off the covers while they're turned on.
