Also can this push 4ohm speakers, specifically the elac uni-fi ub5?
I use a thumb drive to play flac on my 8270. I drive a pair of Polk LSiM705 towers with no problems, they are rated for 8 ohms. I've also driven my Salk STs' with it, those are 6 ohm, and dip to 4 ohm in certain frequencies, also no problems. It is rated for 6 ohm, per the manual.
It is pretty clean at 100w into 8 ohms. Nice unit IMO.
