Is the Denon AVR 3802 (105W/channel) able to power 130W speakers? (i.e. Mission 733e)

    I know that for the Denon 3802, its can pretty much power up any speaker that consumes up to 105W, but would it be safe to use speakers rated between 25 - 130W at 8 ohms such s the Mission 7 front speakers (773e)?

    No problem, plug them in and enjoy.....:)

    25 - 130w, all that means is, you need an amp that is 25w - 130w per channel to run these speakers.

    Agree: no problem.

    In fact it's easier to blow a speaker with an underpowered amp driven into distoration (aka clipping) than with too much power for a short moment - which most speakers can survive.
