Hello

I have the following equipment

Amplifier: Cambridge P25
- 25 watts RMS per channel.
- 4 and 8 ohm speaker outputs
.
CD player: Rotel RCD 930 AX
-Frequency Response: 20-20,000 Hz +- 0.8 db
-Total Harmonic Distortion: less than 0.01% @ 1 kHz
-Channel Separation: greater than 90 dB @ 1 kHz
-Signal to Noise Ratio: greater than 90 dB
-Digital to Analog Converter: 1 Bit Pulse Modulated

Speakers: Kef Coda
- impedance 6 ohms
- 10 - 70 watts

Very basic and old, but now I want to buy some speakers also on the same range/budget and one thing crossed my mind, the doubt about the importance of the ohm impedance.

So, is it a bad thing to have a amplifier with 4 and 8 ohm speaker outputs and speakers with 6 ohms impedance?

Keeping the cd player and the amplifier wich speakers can you advice?

What about

Mission MX1

Q-Acoustics 2010

Wharfdale Diamond 10.1

No problem as regards 6 ohms speakers at all. You should avoid 4 ohms' ones because of power limitation of your amp.

Hi jmata

What do you and anyone else who is also likely to use the system generally listen to?

Room size?

Ceiling height?

Room walls (concrete, brick etc.)?

Room positioning of speakers (in relation to walls, room corners, will there anything be in between the speakers such as windows, sofa etc.)?

Room floor (wooden, concrete, carpeted etc.)?

Distance between the speakers?

Will you stand, shelf or wall mount the speakers?

Your listening distance?

Your general listening level?

Do you use the tone controls on the amplifier?

Interconnects and speakers cables?

What kind of presentation are you looking for the system to reproduce?

Btw, 6 ohm speakers will be fine. Ideally look for speakers at or as close as posible to 8 ohms.

All the best
