    I am deciding between 2 receivers for my HT system, Yamaha RX-V2300 or Onkyo TX-SR601. Both are very similar in specs and price (Onkyo slightly cheaper), but which would be the better choice?
    The TX-SR601 is able to handle 6ohm speakers as the info says on the Onkyo site, but the RX-V2300 has manual settings on the back that can be set 4-6ohm and 8ohm. I am using Tannoy S6 speakers which impedences are 6ohms.

    Can't comment on the Onkyo but I can state that the 2300 is a nice piece (got one myself). Set it to 8 ohms like I did. I have 6 ohm fronts as well.

    Are there any risks regarding unmatching amp/speaker impedences? I had a Sony DE-225 which was had 4 8ohm speakers
    plugged in. It worked for a while but one day while watching a movie, it went into protection mode, and then the power supply blew. The est cost for repair was $135.

    How stable are Yamaha receivers? I do not want to run into the situation again.[​IMG]
