    Is there a good way to test a poweramp without having a preamp handy? Specifically, I have a Yamaha p2700 I want to test out. It is 2 channels at 500W at 4ohms. Or supposedly 1000 watts mono, but I haven't figured that out yet. The lights flicker when I turn it on, so I know it is at least pulling juice and I hear the fans come on.
