Default Where to place an AV Reciever

I have a Yamaha 5/1 AV receiver. Currently it sits on top of my entertainment furniture - a 4 tired wooden box, completely opened in the front and with 3 - 6 inch wide slots on the other sides for the threading of wires and cables.

How much room above and around do I need to insure that the receiver does not overheat? Can I place another component, such as a cable box, on top of it. I rarely play the system very loud or for very long, so i doubt it ever gets too hot. It is only on when listening to music or watching a film - not during regular TV watching. In my new configuration of the system I may want to put it inside the unit and perhaps something else on top.

I have my cable box resting on top of my AV Receiver. Been that way for several years. At the 4 corners of the cable box, I have 1" squares from a 2x4, and placed to raise it up 1-1/2 inches up off the AV. I spray painted the blocks black. I wanted to insure enough air movement. Good Luck
