These speakers are 4ohm's. How hard are they on amps? I've heard a couple horror stories of Denon AV receivers choking on these speakers. (3802 even!) I don't think I can afford the other brand of speakers I orginally wanted but now I'm questioning wheater my weeeee NAD intergrated Amp could handle even the LSi9 bookshelves. The NAD says they can handle 4ohm loads but its only a 50watt 2 channel amp. I will be upgrading the NAD to a bryston before the year is up on the used market. But I wanna make sure I dont cook my lil NAD in the short term. Also, who the heck has heard a good demo of the LSi series? The place I've checked out was in Toronto Ontario and they had it hookedup with fishing line using red/white rca's to an entry level ES AV Sony receiver. The source was a $199.99 Sony DVD player...I almost cried. How can a retailer so low end carry these speakers? Has anybody heard these speakers on decent equipment? Maybe I'm biased, or I'm a snob, but I keep thinking Polk Audio isn't capable of producing a higher end product like the Veritas or Studio's from Paradigm. What I heard I liked but I wish a retailer in ALL OF CANADA had a good setup. I even phoned a Polk Audio rep for some information. He bascially told me that retailer shouldn't even have been carrying the LSi lineup. Sigh...so confused.
