Hello,


I was thinking about purchasing a pair of KEF Q900's and was wondering if they will work well with my Yamaha HTR 5790.


Specs:

http://www.stereophile.com/content/kef-q900-loudspeaker-specifications


My problem:


I see they have a rated impedance of 8ohm but i read an article that these speakers can drop to 4ohms or below...see article:

http://www.stereophile.com/content/kef-q900-loudspeaker-measurements


Will I be able to use my Yamaha 5790 to power the KEF Q900's...and have it sound good to excellent? ...or should I be looking at new receivers/amps?


If so recommendations?


Thanks,


Ryan

Thanks for your interest in the KEF Q900. I think you will get a better response from the official KEF owners thread as the folks on there have spent plenty of time pairing KEF speakers with various amps and receivers http://www.avsforum.com/t/724103/kef-owners-thread/5850


All the best,
