Since your so knowledgeable of the circuit protections used in the 80s and the ones used nowadays, maybe you could share some with the rest of the forum, all of us here are always willing to learn. Schematics (if you could find the board layout and the number of layers used, that would be nice!), circuit block diagrams, IEC 60950 results, fuses (resettable and non-resettable) and sidactors schemes, overvoltage and overcurrent measurement circuitry (an IC part number would be nice!),etc, etc... anything that would be useful, like I said, we love to learn new stuff.

No the M504 is not listed anywere. Infact the only "valid" info I can find from Onkyo or pretty much anyplace else...just lists it as an 8 ohm amp.
So i will order the QSC on monday. May take a week to get here. but I'll know in 10 min's or less if it works or not.

If you were close to the Chicago vicinity I'd bring over a Rotel amp.

I just hope once the shutdown issue gets resolved, we don't have to go through the speakers are "bright" routine.

NO bdpf....I can NOT find the drawings for this 1980's amp,Or very little else, number 1. Number 2, if a 2011 amp, dosen't have a better protection setup, then a 1980 amp...there is pretty much something wrong.

Why in hell would you think circuits from 1980, would work all that dam well?????

I said ...I DON'T KNOW..what they used...SO I can't TELL how many times you can throw it into protection mode, without damageing the dam thing. What the hell is your problem????

I have said NOTHING wrong about the M80's......All i stated was this amp, dose NOT seem to work well with a 4 ohm load.

No Kidding!
Next to this, the discussion between 2x6, Lampy, Peter and Randy looks like a breeze... At least, these people know what they're talking about.

Nice head-palm with sucking in of breath through pursed lips, for the stupidity of it all, Blue Jays.

I say get off Bobs ass and let him do his thing. He'll find out what's what in his own way, nothing wrong, or stupid, for him doing so.

LOL! Can´t tell anything about the M80´s but the speakers being bright idea never crossed my mind. My new KEF Q300´s have a very similar sound to my Axioms IMO.
