Pretty sure I know the correct answer but here goes.....
I really like the Pioneer Elite SP-EBS73 bookshelf speakers b/c they come very highly rated, affordable, smaller size, Dolby Atmos capable (not sure if I will ever use/need it but icing on the cake). Unfortunately they are 4 ohm rated https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/P...S73-LR#manuals
As I understand it, My Denon 2313 is either 8 ohm or 6 ohm capable. I'm not sure the pro's/con's of switching to 6 ohm, but for the sake of argument, lets say that I do switch to 6 ohm.
Let's cut to the chase, is it just plain dumb for me to run 4 ohm speakers on my Denon 6 ohm amp?
If other details of my use case would change ya'alls response:
-The only other speakers I have on the Denon today (and in the immediate future) are the two outdoor speakers I have running on Zone 2 which are not used very often. I may add a center, Sub or other speakers at some point, but assume I will only run the Pioneers and occasionally the outdoor speakers.
- My home audio is used for (in order of frequency): watching sports, kids cartoons, music (Pandora/Spotify/iTunes), family movies, and very occasionally a big kid movie playing at higher volume. Essentially, this system won't be taxed with playing loud music/movies very often.
I'm not going to purchase a new AVR, so I need to purchase speakers that will work with my Denon. Assuming I should steer clear of 4 ohm speakers, any recommendations for bookshelf speakers, ~$600 that are adept at both music and movie (surround sound) playback?
Thanks in advance for any sage wisdom and guidance.
