Hello,
I'm not exactly tech savvy, so excuse my ignorance. I'm currently building my HT and all of my speakers are at 8 ohms of impedance. The A/V receiver I'm about to purchase (Sony STR-DN1050) functions as follows:

STR-DN1050
Minimum RMS Output Power)
(6 ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz, THD 0.09%)
100 W + 100 W
Stereo Mode Output Power) (6 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 1%)
120 W + 120 W
Surround Mode Output Power) (6 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 0.9%)
165 W per channel

Do they match? Also due to the difference between the ohms, will it increase or decrease the output of watts?
Thanks.

Sony used a 6 Ohms spec to show more power....
The receiver will work fine with 8 Ohm loudspeakers, note that its power output will be about 25% lower into 8 Ohms vs. 6 Ohms...

Just my $0.02... ;)

Thank you so much! I can now buy my A/V with full confidence.

One more question, wouldn't the power output increase in my case?

Power increases as resistance drops. At least until the receiver/amp goes into protection.
