Default Dead amp

I think that my amp has been completely destroyed because replaced all transistors excluding the power transistors and amp still not working.

Is there a way to know if power transistors are faulty or not ?

In at least 9 out of 10 of all 'blown amp' cases it is precisely the output transistors are shot, so that's where you look first. A basic continuity test is usually enough to figure out if they work or not in 99% of all cases.
