Hi
I've bought Denon AVR-3806 and Wharfedale 9.6 speakers.
The speakers are 6ohms and the avr is 8ohms.I can't find anything about how to
set impedance to 6ohms in manual.It just says:

• Speakers with an impedance of from 6 to 16
Ω/ohms can be connected for use as front,
center, surround and surround back speakers.


Does this mean i don't have to do anything?
Thanks.

Btw, i'm using Wharfedale Crystal CR-40 for surround(6ohms).So, i'm using four 6ohm speakers and gonna buy a center soon.I hope it's allright.

You don't need to do anything.
It just means it will handle 6 ohm speakers, without damaging the receiver or making it run hot, and go in Protection Mode.

It will be a greater load for the receiver though. Smaller impedance means more current will flow to the receiver's speaker outputs, which will produce more heat. Make sure you keep the receiver well ventilated on the top/back/sides, i.e. don't stack stuff on it!
