I just purchased the JVC 10VBK Receiver which has a setting on the back for 4-6ohms or 8 ohms which do I want to select.

I have Paradigm Monitor 7's as Mains, CC-370 as Center, ADP-170s as Surrounds and Mini Monitors as Rears.

Not familiar with those speakers but the speaker manual will tell you what they are, my guess would be 8 ohms so set your receiver to match your speakers.

These speakers are all 8ohm nominal, so that is what I would recommend you set the receiver to.
