Our units ( I also have a1010 ) use D70YE101BRFP266 dsp IC which is not in the list of the failed chips . Also it is not BGA
Still it is always a good idea to tape heatsinks on the bga ICs.
By the way, are you happy with the audio quality of the power amp?
I personally do not like how it sounds and just use the unit as a preamp. For power amp I have a cambridge audio avr.

I am a glad for this info (chip set). My "golden ears" aren't so golden.... :-) I haven't owned a yamaha before this one but it sounds ok in the HT environment that I use it in with some old jbl "sovereign" speakers along with energy surrounds. I find that the sound environment is better than the denon (4308) but that might be because I haven't spent as much time with the denon in that setup. I was using an onkyo amp as a "switcher" because it could switch a 5 speaker system from one "zone" to another (ie. A / B switching). I could see that the unit makes a good "pre" and that your choice of amp thereafter would be "limitless".
