I very much like my "old" Mirage speaker setup with these specs according to the use manual:


Fronts: OM-6 Impedence = 6 ohms nominal, 4 minimum

Center: OM-C3 Impedence = 8 ohms nominal

Rears: OM-R2 Impedence = 8 ohms nominal


Will I face a problem if I get either the Pioneer VSX-1120K or the Yamaha RX-V667?


Which would handle the mismatch the best?

Receivers don't care if impedances are different among speakers.


If any channel's impedance is too low, shut down could occur (or in the worst case, damage to the receiver). If all speakers combined present too high of a load, same situation.


In your case, I see no worries.

You'll be fine with the 1120. Leave the receiver set for 8 ohms, and you won't have any problems at all.


If it makes you feel better, I ran a mix of 4 and 8 ohm speakers on my 1120 for months, and it never broke a sweat!
