    On top is the point of least resistance.

    I was originally undecided as to where I should put the AM21. I ended up sandwiching it between the HR21 on the bottom and the HR20 -700 on top.

    OK, I had the AM21 under the HR21, but the AM21 was too hot for me to ever feel comfortable going to sleep, so I swapped them and the AM21 is now on top ... and cooler, too.

    I will be sitting mine beside my HR21 for now because I have a HR20 and Slingbox Pro sitting on top of it.

    Mine will go on top of the HR21. There's a spot there just begging for it.

    The only place avaliable is on top.

    I would probably put it there anyway.

    I meant that there it has to be with the HR21...it can't have it's own spot...:rolleyes:

    It just seems like you should put the shorter unit on top of the taller unit. Symmetry...:lol:

    mines been underneath the HR21.. mainly because the am21 is quite light and I was afraid it might get bumped off the bookcase they sit on.. figuired the HR21 made good ballast for it :)

    That's how I started off, with the AM21 under the HR21, but I thought the AM21 was too hot ... especially the F-connector for the OTA line. Moved it to the top and it felt cooler ... Just something to think about!

    I...didn't consider the tuners may be better than my HR20. Hmmm... that would be interesting.
