Let me start out by saying that I'm pretty good with wiring everything, but when it comes to Ohms and Wattage in terms of stereo equipment, I'm completely lost.
So, right now In my room I have a Technics SA-GX300 (from 1990
) thats outputting audio to four speakers. Two of the speakers say 30 Watts and 6 Ohms on them, the other two say 4 Ohms and have no wattage rating on them.
Right now I input a turntable and a stereo cable switch box (the red and white cables). I have a bunch of various things plugged into the switch box just because I don't have enough inputs on the receiver.
The problem is that the receiver seems to be dying. Most of the time it will only output audio to the left or right. I think it has something to do with it being under powered because if I turn of two of the speakers (with the A/B switches), the others will work and vice-versa.
According to some this
, my current Technics receiver gives 60 Watts per channel. I don't really know what that implies.
I would like to get a new receiver/amp just because this one is so old and its big and has lots of features that I don't need (radio, equalizer, etc.). I found this
on Amazon, but I don't really know if that will be sufficient for my setup. In terms of inputs and outputs on the receiver, it's fine. I just don't know if 50 Watts per channel will be enough. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance for any help.
