    Default playing multiple sets of speakers

    I have 3 sets of 8ohm speakers in the same room. I will not entertain playing all three but 2 I think is an option.
    I have a Niles speaker selector w/ a protection button on the end I believe it's for this purpose. Now I also think my Adcom wouldn't break a sweat w/ this either.I just want to know if this is advised ,stupid ,or not healthy for the gear involved. Why you ask ,only because I can no other reason and of course it's not needed between any of the sets I have.
    2chl- Adcom 555- Onkyo P-301 pre- JVC-QL-A200 tt- Denon 1940 ci cdp- Samson PS-15 9 outlet- Niles Sp 6- 6 zone spkr selector- DCM TF 350s- ADC 303ax-KLH 331- Polk Audio '87 SDA 2Bs w/ ic cable (Dynamat extreme, black hole-5- Mills 0.5 resistor, liquid nails, RDO- 194 tweeters, Larry's rings, Armaflex gaskets, stained walnut tops )

    Perfectly fine with the protection button pushed in.
    Even without protection, you should be okay with 2 pairs, even 3 pairs should be okay at normal volume.

    I use Niles 6 and only run 1 pair most of the times but I use protection when running more than one pairs since my speakers are 4 or 6 ohms and also driven by a HT receiver.

    We have piles and piles of Adcom amps and Niles speaker selectors in houses all over Long Island from the 90s still kicking away. Go for it!
