Just got a pair of the lsi9s and have a receiver question now.
currently i have the onkyo 502, not bad but still entry level. My concern is whether or not this will run the lsi9s which are 4 ohms. Here is the spec sheet:
it seems like this will run on 4ohms from that, but im not sure im reading that right because 4ohms on a lower end reciever surprises me i guess. The other issue im not sure about is whether or not i can run the lsi9s at 4 ohms with some other speakers at 8ohms.
if you guys had any thoughts/suggestions that would be appreciated. Perhaps there is a relatively inexpensive reciever (ie under $500) that would be worth upgrading to.
My other thought was to steal my parents hk 235 however the specs dont seem to indicate that it could run the 4ohm load
it does have preouts so could i just get a 4 ohm amp to run the lsi9s? how much would one of those run me...just need 2 channel?
lot of questions from a relative noob in the audio world.
