I run 6 ohms anyway so that's always what I have to look at to get an idea of what my speakers will deal with. Nice thing here compared to the Denon is that I didn't have to get into a special menu...

I had a Yamaha RX-V773WA before my first Denon, didn't use it if it was there. And certainly never used it on the Denon, surround sound put everything where I needed it, and I heard things well. ...
