Guest dsurkin Posted July 31, 2006 Report Share Posted July 31, 2006 I have a Denon 2807 driving a 5 speaker set up in my den: Left and right front--my original Large Advent (2nd generation, Walnut cabinet)--woofers reconed.Center--components from a vinyl Large Advent that I mounted in an empty 2nd generation walnut cabinet.Left and right surround--Small Advents, reconed.A friend of mine who recently bought Dali speakers gave me his pair of Advent 5012s. He had reconed the woofers not long ago.Here's my concern: the Denon is rated down to 6 ohms (though it can drive 4 ohms for some unspecified shorter period), and the Small Advents are 4 ohms. I know that the Small Advents are sonically very similar to the Large Advents. Should I replace my Small Advents with the 5012s to match all the impedence at 8 ohms? Or will the Denon handle the Small Advents reasonably well? Replacing the Small Advents with the 5012 in the den will risk failing the WAF, due to increased size of the speakers. Depending upon which I use in the den, I'll move either the 5012s or the Small Advents to my living room to use with my old NAD stereo receiver, which can drive 4 ohms.Thanks to anyone who can comment on this question.--Dean L.
