    Cabinet Fan System for Marantz  Amp ?

    I have my Marantz amp packaged away in a nice audio cabinet, but seems to be getting very hot, even with doors open, so looking at the AC Infinity range (https://www.acinfinity.com/quiet-cabinet-fans/) with the option to maybe just use a fan with a USB connection and cut a hole in back or side of cabinet to remove the excess heat?

    Or place the fan directly on top of Amp and leave cabinet doors open when in use – the AC Infinity range does seem excellent value

    looks innovative idea to drill/cut small holes and use USB fan as an exhaust.

    but you can buy cheap fan from amazon or so? or use laptop cooling pad fan as exhaust fan?

    something like -> https://www.amazon.co.uk/ELUTENG-3-Degree-Portable-Powered-Compatible/dp/B06XQWMFDQ/

    Yes lots of options for fans which is good news, but making sure they are a good quality fan is very important….

    As some audio cabinets are wooden, wood  tends to act as a resonator so a fan with poor blade balance or bearing quality will be more noisy.

    Sharing the knowledge
