    Hi there,

    Just decided (well almost anyway) to pull the trigger on a 5.1 set of Wharfedale Diamond 9. Then I found posts and a review suggesting that these small satellites are relatively hard to drive... My question is hence: will my Pioneer 502 reciever be enough to drive a 5.1 system of Diamond 9's?

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Cheers

    They're bookshelf speakers rather than satellites, I'd say. Yes, your amp will be fine for moderate volumes. "Hard to drive" refers to low impedance and/or low sensitivity. If you want to really pound the room with them, and the reviews are correct, you may run out of puff. Unlikely, though.
