    This is an area I've struggled to grasp :D I have some Kef Reference speakers which are going to be driven by my 3806 when it arrives. They are rated at 4ohms/89dB sensitivity.

    Would this be an issue please?

    It should not be an issue, it has been established that the 3806's sibling the 3805 was able to drive 4 ohm loads with no trouble. Read some of the US reviews because they use 4 ohms more than we do and see the ability of this kit to drive the lower impedances as being very important. I would ensure good ventillation for the amp, but apart from that you should have no worries.
