Hi @benjaminh87, thank you for reaching out and welcome to the community.

I would like to confirm if the Beam smell like something burning, is there smoke coming out of it? Is it too hot to touch?

If all yes, I would suggest unplugging the Beam; as this is now a fire hazard.

Contact our Phone support for assistance. 1 800 680 2345 Mondays to Friday from 10 am to 9 pm ET. 

Where did you buy the Beam? with us or a 3rd party seller? If 3rd party, contact the seller.

If you have other concerns, feel free to reach out.

My Beam in a 78 degree (F) room shows 80 to 83 degrees across the top. The bottom is in the low 80s except for two spots about 6 inches in from the ends where it is 94 degrees.

I’m guessing that is where the power amplifiers are located and warmer would be expected.
