    Hey everyone, first post.
    I'm in the process of sourcing my first home cinema system.

    I'm going to build it incrementally and so far have identified the Lx-2 Mission (6 Impendence) shelf speakers as my front speakers.

    I'd like to pair it with a receiver that will eventually allow me to add a 4k hd hdr input, and connect 2 other speakers and sub using Dolby ATMOS to make it 5.1.

    Does anyone know of an amplifier that would suit for around £300.

    Receivers I've been looking at so far are:
    Denon AVR X1400H (8 Impendence)
    Denon AV X2400H (8 Impendence)
    Yamaha RSX583
    Pioneer VSX932

    Also I've heard you can't have a speaker with a lower impendence than the receiver, is this correct. I've seen some packages where this isn't the case.

    Thanks,

    Firstly, you'd need a 5.1.2 speaker configuration if wanting Atmos. You can facilitate this by adding either 2 ceiling, upward firing or height speakers to your base 5.1 setup. Secondly, AV receivers and or amplifiers are not rated in terms of impedance. Impedance is the resistance imposed upon the power coming from the amplifier to the speakers. Any currently available AV receiver can handle speakers with an impedance of 6 to 8ohms. Some lower tier receivers can potential struggle when driving speakers with an impedance lower than this, but whether it would or wouldn't be an issue is dependant upon your room size and the volume levels you want to achieve. The speakers in question will not cause any receiver issues when it comes to driving them to reference levels in a small to moderate sized room.

    I'd favour the 2 Denon models with the Yamaha coming a close second.

    Dante, thanks for the concise answer. Pretty much explained all of the queries I had. Know of any other alternative receivers which might be a good fit that I might have missed?

    The Sony STRDN1080 is an option, but one that will require more money.
