    Just another silly newbie question. [​IMG]
    But, before anything else -- Merry Christmas!
    I'm trying to shortlist speakers to audition, stuff that would be within budget etc, and some of them have 6 ohm nominal impedances (PSB Alpha B comes to mind). I am considering a high current amp (HK/Marantz/Yamaha) for a receiver, in case that helps.
    Are lower impedance speakers 'worse' in some way? I know they end up requiring more power, but would a high-current amp have any issues at all?
    For Canadian readers, do you know if Harmanaudio.com will ship to Canada?
    Thanks in advance!
