    It says 130 x 2 @ 6 Ohms, but my speakers are 8ohms. Will this hurt anything?

    check the reciever specs if its 8 ohms compatible, personally i think its panasonics way of making an 85 watts system sound more powerful then it really is.

    To keep it simple, 8-ohm is fine!
    Going "down in ohms" is where you might see a problem.

    The Panny-200 really dose have a pretty strong amp section and probley will drive even a 4-ohm load with out a problem, ("Stereo")! But check your manual if you decied to change speakers that might fall into ~{a "lower" than 6-ohm load}~!!!!

    Myo is right, the 6-ohm power output spec at 1-KHz,,, is to help make the power output rating look better....

    Panny is not the only brand to use these type power rating tactics and not use what I and most like to see, which would look something like this:

    Simulation brand -X

    Stereo L-R
    130-watts "with both channels driven" 20-Hz to 20-Khz into 8-ohms @ .01% distortion

    All Channels ~ DPL DD DTS, etc.
    100-watts "with all channels driven" 20-Hz to 20-Khz into 8-ohms @ .01% distortion

    This type of spec tells a much more accurate story of the receivers-amp section power capabilitys into a 8-ohm load.

    So enjoy your 8-ohm speakers their no problem for the Panny!

    Regards
    Geoff
