I remember Johns posts, but he admits to not being an engineer. From the manual:
So they could say that you didn't follow the manual instructions for setup because it clearly states connect speakers. Even if it doesn't specifically say running without speakers will damage the unleash. He also said its safe to run an old superlead putting out in excess of 120w but in the manual it says:
So personally I wouldn't. But I run it with my 100w all the time.
But it does what it does very well. I found there are a couple of tricks to getting the best out of it. With a small amp (5w), turning the input all the way up actually creates more headroom and brings back any lost fidelity. That is kind of opposite to what the manual states. But they do say experiment with input trim.
I don't either. I use a cheap resistive load to hook the unleash out to. It was cheap and does the job, no risk at all. But, in theory a class D amp like that really shouldn't need a load.
