Yes, but that does nothing to answer the burning question of "just how loud can this go without clipping?" Inquiring minds want to know!While not a true functional test, if the speaker outputs are not connected to the amp, the LEDs will flash during power up and down. This is one way to be sure the circuit is operational without trying to drive the amp to clipping.
Ofc, the other way would be to use a dummy load. While a dummy load will save your hearing, it needs to be done carefully too. Running dummy loads has other potential dangers and should not be done casually.
