I am new to this forum, and new to Polk. I have previously only owned Cambridge Soundworks speakers, and was thrilled to hear the LSi7 speakers and was able to purchase them for only $199 at Fry's. Everything I have read says to use either seperates or a very high power receiver.
I have a Harman Kardon DPR-1001 receiver which is 50 Watts per channel. I know H/K is very conservative compared to other companies power ratings, but I am sure that 50 watts is less than optimal.
H/K says the receiver is fine with 4 ohms. I have done a lot of research on impedance, and most of what I read is that the only major problem is overheating of receivers causing them to shut down / clip. I am not sure if this would be a problem with my receiver because of the digital amps. This receiver is designed totally different to other receivers and does not run hot at all.
With this in mind, do you think I would have a problem with these speakers, or does the low impedance effect the receiver in more ways than heat.
By the way, I intend to eventually purchase the LSiC, and keep my current surrounds. I love the sound of the LSi's, but If I am compromising, I would rather return the LSi's and go in a different direction
