The clipping point (1% THD+N, left channel measured) with all seven channels driven into 8 ohms was 77W at 20Hz and 150W at 1kHz (to the nearest Watt). The protection circuits engaged during both readings, but the receiver was unharmed.
The clipping point, with all seven channels driven into 4 ohms, was reached at 178W at 1kHz. A fuse blew at the end of the 1 kHz test.
With two channels driving 8 ohms, clipping was reached at 191W at 1kHz.
With two channels driving 4 ohms, clipping was reached at 332W at 1kHz.
