    I am going to upgrade speakers and receiver shortly. I have Yamaha and Polks now and want to go to Polk LSi25, LSiC which are 4 ohms speakers. Will the new RX-Z9 drive them easily.
    I am asking because I had to buy 200w monoblocks for the old speakers as the old receiver was not up to the task. I want to move these monoblocks to the rear surrounds and I do not want to spring for the RX-Z9 unless it will do the job. Thanks Henry

    i am using a yamaha as a temporary solution to drive my speakers. they are 4 ohm magnepans and are very well known for being insanely difficult to drive. my yamaha drives them fine (it doesnt struggle, but doesnt drive them like they should be driven). i have an older RX-V1300. for most speakers, it would be adequate, but maggies require a bit of extra juice. for a traditional 4 ohm cone speaker, it will do a great job.
