Of course any modern receiver with all of the bells and whistles will run warm but if you treat it right, that is give it plenty of room and or ventilation it should be no problem. The heat issue I believe was with the 05 series not the new 06 series of receivers.
In any case, I have 5 different Onkyo receivers and haven't had any heat related issues. For that matter, I haven't had any issues whatsoever with any of my Onkyo or Integra products.
I'm glad you got to audition the KEF speakers, amazing aren't they?
To refresh your memory from an August Home Theater Magazine review of the Onkyo TX-SR606 "This is far and away the best AVR under $600 (heck, under $1,000) that I have had the pleasure to review"
