No, that looks perfectly fine John. The Marantz SR7010 will have plenty of clean pre-out voltage capability to drive those power amps to high output levels.

There's rarely any compatibility...

Whether the AVR's high impedance (Z) setting is labelled as 6Ω or 8Ω is irrelevant. The point is NEVER to use the low impedance setting on any AVR, regardless of the nominal impedance of the...

The same principle applies Eric. They simply need 10dB more gain from the amplifier (10 times the power or √10 times the voltage) than a 97dB speaker to produce any given SPL.

So: a 87dB/2.83V/1m...
