I have a Sansui B-3000 amplifier. And I blew it for the second time in a few
hours. I was not even playing loud. The first time an IC gave up, the second

I checked this with a local HiFi shop and they could describe the amp immediately and said that I could use a 4 - 8 Ohms speaker safely.
So I did and after about one hour and a half the amp was ruined. Repairs are about € 50.00.

I wrote to someone who actualy owned a B-3000 used
Alexis Monitor One speakers together with other speakers but he
did'nt know exectly the

So I would line to know if the Sansui B-3000 can work safely with my
This afternoon the HiFi shop called and told me that they had repaired the amp. I really do not want to damage the amp again.
