    I have just got a new pioneer ax5i.
    I am using it to drive a demanding set of dynaudio speakers (although i pre-out front l/r though my integrated hifi amp).

    Dyn quote these speakers at 4 ohm impedance. Is it worth me changing the impedance setting on the amp? Will that make any difference to the sound?

    thanks

    This has little to do with affecting the sound and more with protecting delicate output devices. If your amp has an impedance selector switch then it's safe to assume it's there for good reason.
