my pet peeve, you can't turn it off. It's really on all the time, even after you " power off" and the orange stand-by light is lit. In this mode it generates quite a bit of heat, almost as much as my Denon does when driving 2 small speakers. The Denon has a second, spring loaded hard button to completely kill power to unit, marantz cheaped out here. Only solution is to unplug it.

It's possible that one of the turnon relays has stuck itself into place. the CPU inside still turns the front display off, but the actual power amp never does. Put an ammeter in series with the power cord, to see how much the current draw drops when the unit is supposed to be in standby mode.
