    not, but why bother?

    if you're in a really dusty envorniment, you could pop the hood once every year or so, and clean it out (with compressed air or so), but really, don't bother...

    DON'T cover it, it'll overheat.

    Sorry, could stop myself.
    Maybe an air purifying system if you have a dust issue.
    Don't keep it on the top shelf.

    There is effectively nothing you can do to prevent dust from getting into a component. A little dust inside typically isn't a problem. Try putting the component underneath a higher shelf on your equipment rack, but note the following ...

    It is essential that the component not overheat; do not cover case grills or openings. Some componenents such as amps produce more heat and therefore need more space around, and especially above. Typically tube equipment needs 6"-8" of open space above for ventilation, (won't be the case for a Rotel 1062).

    The other thing is do not smoke; tobacco smoke will quickly coat the inside of a component with a yellow film. This might shorten the life of a component; more certainly it will reduce the resale price because it will stink quite noticably at least to a non-smoker.
