Default Yaqin VK-2100 hybrid running 4 ohm speakers

Many have praised this hybrid amp. Some hate it.

Most of the Hong Kong dealers state they run 4 or 8 ohm
high end efficient speakers. Dealers in Canada state running
4 ohm speakers with will fry the circuits.

The pre-amp is tube. The amp is SS.

Unlike most tube amps, there is only a single
set of 1 pair connections for it on the back (no option
for 4 or 8 ohm with common ground).

So what do you all think? Will running it strictly with
high end 4 ohm speakers fry this hybrid?

My "expert" says that the 2100 has a OTL circuit
and to run it with 4 ohm speakers will fry it.

(Many of the VK-2100 retailers and Ebayers state
it will run 4 or 8 ohm loads)...

I used the vk-2100 with small 4-6 ohm speakers with no problem. Plenty of power.
