I did this years ago when I was about to buy some Totem Dreamcatchers and Onkyo, Denon and Yamaha all responded back that none of their sub $1,000 AVR's were recommended for that load.
This statement from Arnyk is complete hogwash.
My data was taken from Yamaha documentation that is online:
But of course Yamaha is lying. ;-)
I tested a Yamaha RX-V371 with a loudspeaker with an impedance curve like this, this afternoon:
Ran the AVR right up to clipping. It was loud!
Here is the impedance curve of Totem Dreamcatcher:
The speaker I tested the RX-V371 with this afternoon is somewhat more demanding (lower minimum impedance, generally lower impedance and easily as reactive) than the Dreamcatcher, or is Stereophile magazine lying? ;-)
