Both components are rated oddly. The Outlaw is rated to have 28db of gain, yet reach 200W\/ch with only 1.43v. Hmmm. Maybe I'm slow today, but the math doesn't appear to work on the Outlaw. As for that Yamaha, I can't see the owner's manual online without signing in, and I won't, but 1v into 1200 ohms is an odd output spec. The input impedance of the Outlaw is about 50K ohms, so the Yamaha is rated into a much more demanding load. Without measuring it is impossible to know how it all works out.\n\n200 watts @ 8 ohms is 40Vrms. 40\/1.43 = 27.97 20*log (27.97) = 28.9dB or 29dB, sounds about right to me.
