I just got a AVR 507 today and i have one question. I am using 4ohm speakers and with my old receiver i had to go into setup and choose between 8 and 4 ohms. I cant see anywhere in the manuel to select the correct ohms.
Will it automatically be ok for my speakers?

Dont worry about it, just relax and enjoy your new purchase.

Todd,

There's no setting to change between 4 & 8ohms. It just handles it. I have a Ref50, same processor. My speakers are 4ohm as well (PSB Stratus Silveri's). It just means my amp(B&K Ref200.5) will almost double down for loud transient peaks from 200wpc to 375wpc. The 507 works the same way. I had a 307 for almost a year, before owning a Denon 5803 which also worked the same way, it just handled it.
