Nominal Output / Maximum Output

Lets say I were to get an Onkyo 605, can someone give me a fair idea of the nominal value compared to the maximum output? I have Yamaha speakers with a 100W total input per channel so I was wondering if it would be okay to use these, as opposed to buying some Eggs.

Technically, there is a risk of damaging these speakers with the Onkyo 605. It can deliver higher output than the speakers will stand, at least momentarily.

As a rule of thumb, the speakers should be able of standing twice the continous amplifier power. :)

But, if you are not planning to play very load for long periods of time, your probably not going to have any problems.

I think you should be fine if these speakers can handle 100W. When I bought my 605, the reviews that I saw said the actual power output figures by 605's were less than the advertised figures. 90watts or so per channel (max)

Actually, 30W RMS 20-20kHz into 8 Ohms, all channels driven, would be a more realistic estimate for the SR-605. The speakers should be fine if you don't try to get volume levels out of them that neither the speaker nor the amp can deliver.
