    I have a Denon AVC A10SE amp and I am considering upgrading my speakers to a set of KEF TDM's with a 4 Ohmn Impedance. However, reading the Manual, Denon suggest that 6 - 16 Ohmn Speaker is attached.

    Will my Amp be able cope with these speakers??

    I am happy that it will, given that the speakers have a sensitivity of 90dB and I rarely have the volume at eardrum popping levels.

    If anybody disagrees or can suggest another Speaker package, let me know.

    Cheers

    I have spoken to Denon in the past at a show (where they were using KEF THXs at 4 ohm) about this very subject in reference to my AVC-A1D. Their answer was quite simple, they stated that there was nothing to worry about because (like yours) the amp meets THX standards. Makes their warnings on the casework a bit stupid then!

    I had a similar question not long ago except I was driving the amp with higher-than-suggested-impedance speakers.

    From what I gathered, if you have lower than amp impedance then you'll be driving the amp much harder.
