Hello Gurus,

I would like to know how Yamaha RX-V473 would work with MARTIN LOGAN MLT-2 speaker set.
Due to space concerns I have to stick to small speakers. I picked up MARTIN LOGAN MLT-2 and since Yamaha RX-V473 is available for $250 I am inclined towards it. The features available on this receiver are more than enough for my needs.
However, I see that the receiver is rated as 105 x 5 watts whereas these MLT2 speaker power rating is 15-100 watts. I'm concerned if the receiver will harm the speakers. Also is there anything else with this combination I should be concerned about?

Thanks!

The Yamaha website actually shows 80 watts, with two channels driven for that avr. If driving all 5 channels with the same signal the 80 watt figure will drop drastically. I couldn't find the impedance for the Martin logans but they have an efficiency of 89db.

As long as they are 8ohm you should be fine. However if they are of a lower impedance and you like tp listen at high volumes, you may actually need more power.

Thank you! I see that the impedance is 8 ohms on MLT-2.
