Yamaha RX-V2600 - speakers with different Nominal Impedance?

I've been recommended to get Monitor audio GS-series for my new home theater setup. (To match my Yamaha RX-V2600 Amp)

But the main nominal impedance of 8 ohm's, center depending on chosen model 6/8 ohms and surrnouds have 6 ohm's. Is this a problem or can one mix loudspeakers in this way? (I've been under the assumption that one should only have speakers of same nominal impedance)

That combination would not be a problem. Keep in mind that speaker impedance fluctuates and does not remian constant therefore amlifiers have to be built to accomodate this.

OK.
Now if I use mixed Impedance (6 & 8Ohm) loudspeakers should I set in the Amp the speaker impedance to 8 (max) or 6Ohm (Min)? (Can set this in my yamaha RX-V2600)
