Is it safe for my Vienna speakers?
as part of my summer setup i'm listening instead of a tube amp yamaha as-500 amp with vienna acoustic haydn grand speakers. they're 4 ohm speakers and yamaha has 4/8 ohm switch at the back...i set it by the book at 4 ohm position...but, reading some reviews about yamaha some of them says to ignore this if you have 4 ohm speakers, and use 8 ohm position instead, because it sounds better? i would like to try this but i'm afraid, i'm not sure is is safe for the speakers? what would be the benefits of setting switch at 8 ohm? what's pro and con in this situation?
