    I'm currently looking at a pair of Axiom Millennia M80ti floorstanding speakers to go with my AVR300/FMJ 27A combination.

    The M80ti speakers are 4ohm therefore needing a pretty good amp to drive them.

    Do you feel that the AVR300 is up to the task?

    Regards

    Should be no problem. I don't own one yet, but I did demo one in the house for 2 days. Speakers are PSB Golds which are 4ohm and not that efficient. 85db is about the loudest I would want to listen, and it did this with ease. It wasn't even bi-amped, so that's an extra reserve if needed.

    I have been an owner of an AVR300 and it is capable of driving 4 or 8 ohm speakers via a switch on the back panel.

    I've used my avr300 to drive Onix Reference 1 speakers with absolutely no trouble at all.

    I've got an AVR 250 and am driving 4 ohm B+W 610s without any troubles. So the more powerful AVR 300 should be more than adequate.

    I use the M&K K series speakers with an AVR300 and have no problems at all. Quite the reverse, I love 'em!

    I remember reading on the forum by andy dutton that you should be really driving 4 or 8 ohm speakers with it switched to 4ohm downfall is it will heat up more but it will sound a wee bit better.
