  • Q: I have two loud speakers JBL 150 W . How many watts does this unit send to each speaker?  (3 Answers)

    By Soundman 

    • Best answerHere is an accurate, but complex answer. Output power varies with input voltage, volume control setting, and speaker impedance. The power amplifier in this receiver can cleanly drive 100 Watts RMS maximum into 8 ohm speaker loads. The power is highest when the sound is loudest, less when the sound isn't so loud. Amplifier distortion can kill your tweeters, so, never turn the volume up so loud the amplifier clips. Your speakers are rated for normally balanced music. There is less power at high frequencies than at low frequencies in normal music. Distortion from amplifier clipping can kill the tweeters in speakers that have higher power rating than the amplifier because the distortion is higher frequencies added to the music. Amplifier clipping sounds like a shrill, fuzzy, lack of clarity. Power amplifiers are voltage controlled voltage sources. The volume control controls voltage gain. With normal input voltages, never turn the volume up all the way. Output power doubles for the same voltage when the speaker impedance is halved. Amplifier output current is limited, so maximum amplifier output power does not double when the load impedance is halved, so amplifier clipping starts at a lower output voltage, so don't turn the volume up as high to avoid amplifier clipping with low impedance speakers. The power amplifier in this receiver is capable of clean power output higher than 100 Watts into 8 ohms for brief periods. This is called dynamic power. Normal music does not maintain high volumes continuously. Your speakers are capable of handling clean power higher than the maximum rating for brief periods also. The moral of this story is: the amplifier in this receiver will not have any problem driving your speakers, but use your ears. Listen for shrill, fuzzy, distortion. Don't turn the volume up so high that the amplifier clips and burns out your tweeters or your ears.

    • Best answerYou need a pre-amp Between your turntable and receiver. Your CD player will work fine directly connecting to the receiver.

    • Best answerThe line 3 in/out shows that it was designed for a audio recording device. I actually use the line out to feed my soundbar which I use for speakers. I don't think it would do what you want in the true fashion of your intention.

  • Q: I am buying this amp plus speakers. What bookshelf speakers would work the best?  (2 Answers)

    By Mospina 

    • Best answerAs far as which ones are the best, that is a matter of opinion. I have this receiver and I run my Polk Audio Monitor 40 Series II bookshelf speakers with it. It sounds great to me. Those bookshelf speakers are discontinued, but you can still find them if you search for them. As long as you go with an 8ohm or higher speaker you should be fine.
