    Is it normal for the box to get rather warm?

    I mean, its obviousley hard to describe the temperature.

    I can feel a fair bit of heat if i place my hand above the box, is this a normal thing to expect?

    The short answer is "yes". Unlike the HDR-FOX the HD-FOX relies on passive cooling - ie no fan. However many watts it draws from the mains (the manual says 22W max), the vast majority of it gets converted into heat (some of it having done some useful work on the way) which then mostly turns into convection (not much will be radiated). So what you feel should be very much like waving your hand over a 15W light bulb.
