Hello,

I purchased a Yamaha Aventage RX-A550 from Best Buy for $250. I have ordered the following ELAC Debut speakers: B6, C5, B4. Since the speakers are 6 Ω I understand they are harder to drive. My question is whether the receiver I selected has enough power? All the reviews I can find indicate the RX-A550 has powerful sound, but the manufacturer power ratings are very entry level:
Rated Output Power (1kHz, 2ch driven) 95 W (8 ohms, 0.9% THD)
Rated Output Power (20Hz-20kHz, 2ch driven) 80 W (8 ohms, 0.09% THD)
Maximum Effective Output Power (1kHz, 1ch driven) (JEITA) 140 W (8ohms, 10% THD)
Dynamic Power per Channel (8/6/4/2 ohms) 110 / 130 / 160 / 180 W

This is my first real home theater setup so my biggest worry is that once I get the speakers and set it up I won't "know" that receiver is not doing the speakers justice.

More than enough, my cousin just bought this receiver and is running 2 SVS prime towers and center and it plays louder than he'll ever need it to, sounds great too....
