just realized this old receiver i had down in the basement has potential.
55w/ch into 4 or 8 ohms. Response 20-20kHz (+0.5 -0.5dB). Distortion .2%. Noise and hum pwr amp -95dB, aux -90dB, phono -76dB. Damping factor 50. Input impedance: pwr amp 100k, aux 250k, phono 47k. Input sensitivity: pwr amp 2.5V, aux 0.25V, phono 2.0mV. Tone controls: bass and treble. +16 to -16dB. LF filter 50Hz at 12dB/octave. HF filter 7kHz at 12dB/octave.
would this receiver be able to drive a pair of paradigm monitor 7 or 9 speakers? or any speakers around the same price range for that matter? how can i tell (what specs do i need to look at/compare)?
