Anthem D2 runs
I have owned a D2 for several years now and it has always run very hot. No problems with unit, just updated it with the ARC and 1.33 software. I also have the A5 and you are right- much cooler than the processor. I think this is normal for this unit. 
Pre-pro Advice for B&W 802d HT System
FWIW, I use an Anthem D2 with 803D, HTM2D, and c-1066 rears. For amplification I have the Anthem A5. The system is not bright by any means but clean and very transparent. Extremely revealing sytem due to neutrality of poor recordings, but very goo... 
New B&W
I have no experience with the older B&W, but have to say that I disagree with your assessment of the 803D. I have owned these for two years, driving with 200W amps, and am very happy with them. Prior to purchase, I listened to a wide variety o... 
Pass, Mac, or Anthem

Which multichannel amp to buy
You may wish to consider the Anthem Statement A5. Very transparent, good match for your processor. 
803D or 802D
I have a music/HT setup with 803d, matching center(HTM1?; the one with the diamond tweeter but not the rounded head) and ceiling mounted b&w (I forget the designation, but they are the ones that look like directional, not surface mount, about ... 
Which processor has better audio for home theater?
I listened to both the Anthem D2 and the Krell and ended up buying the Anthem. I found the Krell a little bright, but that may have been the speakers that I use as well (B&W 803d, HTM1 center, rears are the equivalent to the 804s in ceiling mo... 
B&W 803d vs. B&W 804s - Fast Input
I own a pair of 803D; have had them for about 1.5 years. Installed in a large room, about 20X25 with 13 foot ceilings. Great sound at any level but must be matched with a good amp as they are a very difficult speaker to drive. I would recommend at...
