I'm going to go with NO...
The HTiB speakers, from the rating on the back of that unit, appear to be 3-ohm impedance. That is really low for a normal AVR to drive - you might be able to get away with using them for a while, but if your AVR starts shutting down due to thermal protection, you should stop using them immediately. That low impedance is going to drive the amp hard...
(Now, that's what the HTiB unit says - if there's a different rating shown on the speaker(s) themselves, that could change the answer).
This is why I never recommend HTiB systems as a place to start - the pieces are generally incompatible with "normal" AV gear in one way or another, so when it comes time to do an upgrade - you end up starting over from scratch.
