If you even once hooked more then one pair of speakers to either
Terminal A or B, the Sony is most likely already damaged. It can't even
handle a 4 ohm load on just Terminal A. Only allowed to run one pair of
speakers on Terminal A and B with 8 or 16 ohm load.

Without knowing if the Sony is already damaged, it would be hard to
troubleshoot the Duet Receiver. But try doing a Factory Reset and
connecting just a normal pair of book shelf, monitor or floor standing
speaker to just terminal A and see have you get.

If the Amp is OK and the Duet, there are some options we can talk
about. But we have to prove both units are OK first.
