Hot Droplet?

Calling you audiophiles with Consonance Droplet experience--I have heard good reviews regarding the player but have also heard they run hot. Warm is ok but a room heater is not. What have been your experiences with this players reliability, sound quality and heat output?

Yes, they do run hot. We are in a small Manhattan Studio apartment and it has not yet been an issue for me.

Think in terms as not as hot as big tube amps or Class A SS amps ... and you will get a better feel for the heat. It is more along the lines of Dynaco Stereo 70 in heat output (in my experience.)


I have spoken with a few others who have verified they run no hotter that a tube CD does and that the sound quality is amazing for the price.
