    probably....... the amp is likely rated for 4 to 8 ohm...... in any case, be careful and you will be fine

    oh the marantz is a reasonably capable machine, im sure you will be fine, as you say, if you keep it sensible.

    lol i have the parents and neighbours issue also...... you'll always manage to find a time when the house is empty and be tempted! :D In my case, i couldnt listen to a movie at the sort of levels likely to induce damage, i find reference level would make my ears bleed after not too long!

    all the best
