    I think it probably has the power, although I can’t find a schematic on the interwebs. If you have a multimeter, you can use it to test the resistance across the negative terminals. If it reads less than one ohm, you are probably OK.

    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    Test the negative outputs.

    If you're patient, you can get an Adcom GFA 555 for that much. Also there are big boy NADs out there for even less.
  • Awesome thank you for the options FestYboy I'll look into an Adcom or a NAD instead of that onkyo I have nothing against onkyo my grandfather has a onkyo tx-4500mkii that I would really like to have like.. mlistens03 and I could not find a schematic of that m282 amp at all. The main reason why I am looking into a amp is it would like three pairs of front speakers my monitor 7s and my bose 201 series iii on my Sony Da50ES and the SDA 1s on a nice amp
  • Thank you F1nut for the advice but I don't have that amp I was hoping someone on here had it so I wouldn't make a bad purchase and blowing up that amp

    I owned one of those Onkyos in the past. Used it to power Zone 2 speakers. Even in that application, it was rather underwhelming. You can get a much better amp for your $400 budget, Adcom, NAD, Parasound, B&K...

    Just a thought, some companies do have an archive who just might direct you to the question your asking. It worked for me when I needed an old remote for my Onkyo p-3150v the woman looked it right up and I still had it. Another biggie is the McIntosh factory who has an artifact dept. and and a a guy is there to answer most all questions. Try it. it can't hurt.
