I'm getting a set of Velodyne CHT front row's whose impedance is listed as:
"6 ohms (compatible with 8 ohm receivers)"

I'm thinking about pairing them with an Onkyo 504 since it's cheap, however on Onkyo's site it lists the 504 power output at 8 ohm and specs say it is NOT compatible with 6 ohm speakers.

Can I pair these successfully? Is there another receiver in the ~$200 range I should consider?

If you do a search I've asked & answered this question a few times.

Try a search for 'Onkyo' in post by 'steve71'. If that doesn't turn up anything, let me know.

The 504 will power the CHT's with no problem. Lots in the HTIB Alternative thread and putting together a budget combo have paired them together. For the price it's a great combo.

My brother in law has been running a refurbed 504 with 6ohm speakers for a looooong time now. No problems, and he has the thing cram'd in there, virtually no ventalation and these run pretty darn hot.
