Yeah. Your Integra packs quite the punch. I don’t mind mine though. I like it because of all the connectivity and features it packs. I don’t need critical listening in my room, just and hdmi in and out and speaker outs. Bluetooth is cool so I can lay in bed and turn it on and wake up to some nice jazz. I also can’t complain because I got it second hand in mint condition for $200.
But if I want something quality to listen through, I’ll head to Parasound, or even these Crown amps. Cheap, effective, surprisingly good.
Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)
