Default What does EDM do to your Equipment?

It seems when I play hardcore on my receiver it gets a little warmer than if I was to play trance at the same volume. Is this a figment of my imagination or does harder more pumping music actually make your equipment hotter?

You should ask yourself the question, does your receiver make difference between the different styles of music? And if you knew a little about digital audio you wouldn't even post this.

Ok genius, what does digital audio have to do with his equipment? YOU tell US.

Trance, technically speaking, yes I could see how Hardcore could be more rigorous on your equipment than other genres. The thing that's getting hot is the power supply and capacitors in the amp. With hardcore, it's so fast and hard hitting, the power supply is having to keep large amounts of energy going to the caps. The caps are having to charge and discharge at a much faster rate therefore causing them to heat up and run hotter than usual. It's no different than going from Jazz to Heavy Metal. You could even watch a temperature gauge rise and fall during an action movie every time a lot of action comes up.

You are talking about the amp, in which case I agree. However, the purpose of the receiver is to decode the samples and send them to the D/A converter, isn't it?

a receiver is a preamp (inputs/outputs and all processing), tuner and an amplifier in one chassis. So what you're talking about is the preamp side. Yes it decodes the signal and sends it to the D/A or A/D converter (depending on what's going on) but if you're getting a preamp hot, something's wrong. He's talking about a receiver that has an amp built in therefore......

I knew someone would reply that way!

Thanks for the info Toxis! Yeah, it's not a digital amp. Just a cheap Teac-AG370.

I wonder how much IDM, glitch, noizecore, or speedcore (extratone maybe?) would do

i notice things with heavy bass push my system more than anything else - the cooling fan kicks in on the pulses of bass from kick/sub heavy EDM more than anything else (depending on volume of course)...

Totally makes sense to me
