Recomended setups incompatibility
Reference nov 09 issue
At the start, page 6 to be exact, you tested Q Accoustics 2000 series speakers and paired them with a Sony STR DH800 AV receiver.
The output of the AV amp is 8 ohms and the speakers are 6 ohms.
Is this ok as I am lead to belive that if you use a speaker of lower impedance than the amp, the amp will be overworked and possibly damaged?
I have a STR DN1000 av amp, which is similar to the Sony STR DH800, and the impedance is 8 to 16 ohms, so I would like to know the answer as I want to get the Q Accoustics speakers.
