But more than these things, how one DAC is implemented matters the most. The filtering used, the analogue section, the quality of the power supply.

I’m not sure if keeping a heavy AVR on top of the Audiolab is a good idea.

No other place to keep until my carpenter comes back from his native and reworks on the existing cabinet. :( don't want to keep it on top of AVR as the hot air from Denon can go inside Audiolab with the laptop cooler on.

@amrutmhatre90 Is that a laptop cooling pad , have you seen the temperature drop post using it ?

Yes, it's a laptop cooling pad. It definitely worked for me, the AVR stays warm and doesn't get hot or untouchable.
