Hi,

I am looking to purchase a Denon AVR-5800 ( http://www.del.denon.com/catalog/pdf...0LIT16PAGE.pdf )and match it with psb speakers ( http://www.psbspeakers.com/s/sp/6T-TechSpec.html 6T's for fronts http://www.psbspeakers.com/s/sp/9C-TechSpec.html 9C for the center channel, http://www.psbspeakers.com/s/sp/10S-TechSpec.html and 10S's for the surrounds).

The surrounds are Nominal 6 Ohms Minimum 4 Ohms, as are the fronts, however the center channel is Nominal 8 Ohms Minimum 6 Ohms. Is this a common practice in the industry, it would seem that one might expect all the speakers to have the same impedance. The denon amp puts out 170W at 8 and 200W at 6. 1. Will this be a noticable difference in power, will the center overshadow the fronts and surrounds as far as volume and clarity are concerned?

2. Will the receiver compensate for the difference automatically?

3. Will it lead to the center channel wearing out before the other channels?

4. Lastly, i understand that the speaker to receiver matching is one of the most critical parts of home theater, Does anyone have any pro's and con's as to pairing these two up. I have heard the psb's hooked up to a different amp and they sounded impressive but i cannot find any stores that carry both so that i may hear how they sound together!


Thanks a bunch
