What's the make and model of your AVR? Of your speakers?

-- Edit --
Never mind, I see from another thread you started that you have a Pioneer VSX-1019. The instructions on pg. 36 of the owner's manual seem pretty straightforward:
Quote:
Switching the speaker impedance
. . .

1 Switch the receiver into standby.

2 While holding down ENTER on the front panel, press  STANDBY/ON.
The display shows RESET ◄ NO ►.

Use TUNE +/– (or ↑ / ↓ on the remote control) to select SPEAKER ◄ 8Ω ►, and then use PRESET +/– (or ← / → on the remote control) to select SPEAKER 8Ω or SPEAKER 6Ω.
• SPEAKER 8Ω – Use this setting if your speakers are rated at 8 Ω or more.
• SPEAKER 6Ω – Use this setting if your speakers are rated at 6 Ω.

Weird. Wish I could help, but it seems so straightforward I can't think of anything to suggest.

Just leave it on 8 ohms. In my main room I have a mix of 8 ohm energy towers and 6 ohm Jamo towers. All powered by my Denon receiver. Never had any problem and the receiver does not have a switch.

I have owned 5 different receivers from Denon, Harman Kardon and Marantz over the past few years and none of them had a 6/8 ohm switch. Why is this even necessary?

Is the power supply that bad in the Pioneer 1019 that one needs to change the setting?
