I finally received the AC Infinity Aircom T10 cooling fan yesterday and installed it on top of my Marantz SR7013. It really matches the Marantz well and looks like it's a part of the AVR. I watched a review by Youthman and he was discussing fan noise and he liked the fan setting at level 2. If I run it a level 2 the temp will get around 88-90 degrees and that's not really pushing the volume. I've researched what is the optimal temperature your receiver should run and for the most part I see the recommendation at 85 degrees but there seems to be no published information from D&M about that subject. I'm also wondering how do you turn this thing off without manually having to press the function button on the front of the unit? It would be nice if they would have included a remote.

I run mine at 86 in smart mode. Ive only seen it kick in on high once and it went to like 90. Most times it runs when the unit is on is like 83. The only time I really hear it is when its quiet after a movie at high volume. I think its a GREAT unit and well worth the cost.In smart mode I think once it cool down to like 78 I don't believe the fans run. Or at least I haven't hear them. I just leave it on all the time.

When I bought my new Denon x4300w AVR two years ago I wanted to make sure it stayed cool and calm. I don't know that I ever had heat issues with my old Denon, but, I wanted to make sure I didn't have them with the new one. So, I bought an Aircom Infinity S9. Hands down a great product. Dead quiet. Runs when it needs to, doesn't when it doesn't.

The S10 is a front exhaust unit. The S9 is a top exhaust. That didn't make any difference to me then, and wouldn't now either. The T series like you mention here seems to have more stuff on the front panel. I don't look at that as a positive. It means a more distracting faceplate when you're just looking to listen to music without a bunch of light blaring at you in a subdued room. On the S9, you can disable the front panel bright circle of light. I did that.

Because I can disable the light on the front panel and there are no other visible controls, the S9 disappears on top of my AVR. I know its there, but, its so unobtrusive it literally just disappears.
Its a great purchase even if its just for peace of mind. Two thumbs up from here. I can't hear the fans no matter how much they run. If I am playing the unit hard enough to generate heat requiring max fans the volume is so loud I couldn't hear them anyway.

2 years later (its now 2020) I have had zero issues with the Aircom. It has performed flawlessly and silently.
I would wager you will have the same experience with your T10 once you get the hang of it.

I run an AC Infinity Aircom on my AVR as well(T8). I got sick of turning it off and on and the risk of forgetting to turn it back on if off. So, I purchased an switched AC outlet and now run it off of my AVR's 12V triggers. It works perfectly and shuts off and on with the AVR. One just needs to be careful to let it run a bit if it is really hot before shutting off but, that never really happens as it cools very well in my application.

If you also want to do this here is what I did...

I went with a Xantech AC-1 for the switched AC outlet...

I got one of these off of Amazon...

I used a piece of speaker wire to connect the 3.5mm mono adapter to the AC-1 and that's it...


I really don't get why AC Infinity didn't include a 12V trigger on these "T" models at least as they are their flagship models. I gladly would have paid more for this feature...

Seriously, I have no life.
I just use a smart power strip keyed to the avr....on two different systems and it works just fine.

The Xantech AC1 has been discontinued by the manufacturer for a while.

I got it from Amazon about a month ago so, I guess they can still be found. Many people dyi one too or use a power bar or power conditioner with the capability if you can't find one. I think there may be other brands too.
