    I am very keen on this amp but have run into conflicting advice from 2 dealers.My current rears are the Mission77ds rated at 70watts rms . Dealer no 1 says that the Yam will fry them for sure as it is 7+ 120 watts per channel. Dealer no2 says it will be ok as in reality the Yam only outputs 70 -80 watts all channels driven. I am keen to keep the Missions as they integrate well into our listening room and would like to add another pair for full 7 channel duties. What do people think --advice gratefully received.

    Hi Kidrock
    I think if all speakers are set to small (crossover80hz) rest sent to sub you would be ok.I used the m7ds with my nad t752 which output a true 90 watts per channel all channels driven with no problems ,other forum members use them with amps more powerful than this with no adverse effects.
    Cheers Gonzo.

    It should be fine unless you plan on running the amp at full output continuously !

    You are normally more likely to damage the speakers with an under powered amp (Amp start clipping and voice coils in the speakers overheat !).

    Cheers

    P.S Good choice of amp ;)

    speakers can take a lot more than there rated for peak power.

    as said unless your running the yam at 100% all day shouldnt be a problem - I doubt you'd be running the yam over 50% anyhow?

    Its far easier to kill speakers with an underrated amp pushed to far and clipping.
