Three channels on my NHT power5 started cutting out (going into protection mode) at reasonably high volumes. It will come back on after lowering volume. I am powering Salk HT2-TL's which are 4 ohms.
I called NHT and they told me that the power5 should not be used to power 4 ohm speakers, and I was lucky it has worked this long (I have been using it with these speakers for almost 4 years) He said that the amp should be fine since it works at lower volumes, but I should sell it or use 8 ohm speakers.
I seem to remember researching this amp and reading on this forum that the power5 should put out around 500wpc at 4 ohms. I also remember people telling me it would be a good match with my speakers.
Does it make sense that it would handle it for 4 years and then decide not to?
