This device works flawlessly without heating due to the aluminum radiators with the cooling fan.

Sound Quality

The sound is dynamic and detailed with merely a zero distortion even at low volumes. 4K upscaling of the HD video content allows connecting Blu-Ray and enjoying the new level of sound reproduction.
