I think it was a semantic variation of my good friend Phuz' that you are quoting...but I have implied the same thing. What we are saying here, is at higher volume, you are at risk damaging the speakers (with distortion), and the amp (with potential overheating) that will resulted in protection circuit to go off and shut down the receiver. Denon "officially" do not support 4 ohms load or lower (it stated rating is 6-16 ohms). But, the forum is in agreement that 4802/5802R will drive LSi's safely. I don't know about the 3 series, but from Dan's experience, it has issues also.

When Polkaese say's..."Just don't turn up the LSi too loud", what exactly is not "too loud"???
But I am still under the impression my Denon will smoke more than I do.
