    Newbie with a pair of Dynaudio 25th anniversary front speakers, and a Pioneer Elite 52TX. Used mostly for HT and some music. Speakers are 4 ohm, and receiver 8 ohm, with 110 wpc. Benefit of adding an amp? Given the descrepency in ohms, will this add an appreciable improvement in sound? I can continue to run the receiver and associated different modes(ie., movie modes etc..)? Can I still use auto MACC? Sounds like Outlaw and Odessey are well thought of. Input appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Andy

    The Dynaudio Special 25 are awesome speakers, possibly among the best bookshelf speakers made.

    They are wasted without a really high quality amp capable of providing them plenty of power at 4 ohms. A pair of Arcam P1 monoblocks or a Krell would do them justice [​IMG] , but there are lots of good amps out there. But whatever you get make sure it's designed for 4 ohm loads.

    If you run the Special 25s on an amp that's only designed for 8 ohm loads, it may overheat and shut down unless you keep the volume down. And that's easy to do with these speakers as they have lower than average sensitivity.
