    Was in the market for a Stereo or HT receiver that can support 4 speakers at 4 ohms + at least 100+ watts.

    OR... A stereo receiver that also has a set of pre-outs that can handle 4 ohms and provide at least 100 watts of power

    Any information would be helpful!
    Thanks!

    Found it - the Sony STRDA2ES receiver -= basic unit that has a switch on the back for 4ohm and 8 ohm loads!

    Soundquality not an issue - robust and stable power - that's critical! - (For my clark transducers)

    Thanks for the suggestions guys!

    You dont even need that for tactile transducers. Any old crappy 100W receiver will do since you have no way of telling when the receiver is distorting or clipping, and most 100W rated receivers will output 100W of terribly distorted sound at some point. Also receivers that have switches on the back for 4 and 8 ohm loads usually limit the current drawn from the output stages so you wont get as much current from them at 4 ohms which is needed to feed your tactile transducers.
