Just purchased this amp. I am a little suprised at how hot the metal faceplate on the control panel gets during use. I know tubes generate heat and the DSL40 has the four pre-amp tubes just behing that faceplate. Still, just wondering if this is "normal". This is occurring even in low power mode, at relatively low volumes (set at 2 or below) and the Ultra Gain at about three quarters.
