Hi Jim,    My 6+ also seems warm. I noticed the "hot electronics smell" a
few months after I bought it.  I popped the cover, and the only hot spot I
found was a partition in the center of the bottom chassis.  It acts as  a
heat sink for a 5 volt regulator, and does get toasty.  I called the
factory and they didn't seem too concerned, but they did say send it in if
I wanted to under warranty.  Needless to say, "if it aint broke, don't fix
it" so I didn't send it in!
