The 4 and 8 ohm rating are the same on the NAD. I believe it is also the same on the Rotel I was looking at. The difference is in the dynamic rating. That will shoot up for the 4ohm. I noticed with arv units they seem to be the same, although a fair amount of them are not rated for 4ohm.
To the original poster, you will be VERY happy with the 60's for music! I just got mine a couple of weeks ago, and last week bought an NAD amp. TONS of power! And I do like it loud. With those speakers and a nice amp, you will not need a sub, until you go multi-channel, IMHO.
By the way, my room is about 14ft x 26ft x 8ft.

As far as in home audition I have contacted squirellyz who lives about 15 minutes from where I work in Atlanta. I am hopeing he will be willing to set up an audition of his 60's. He has not answered me as yet. It has only been since last night that I wrote to introduce myself and see if we could work something out. I hope he likes beer because I tried to bribe him with some. He seems to be the only one listed in the Atlanta area willing to do demo's. If you know of anyone else or if anyone in the Atlanta area is reading this please contact me. I would love to hear some before I buy. I'm pretty sure I am going to buy the 22's in a week or two to hold me over till I get the money for the other set. The 60's or 80's and then move the 22's to my bedroom which needs some decent sound or use them as fronts in the surround system with the Polk satellites and sub. If I do that then I would use the Polk fronts in the bedroom until the next stage of enhancements. I'm still trying to figure it all out. I will probably wait till Bernadette and I figure out if we want to do the 3 room reconfiguration. I can already see her wheels turning trying to figure out what new furniture we will need to pull it off. So that is my bargaining chip. I appreciate all the feedback. Now I have to hear the 22's, 60's and the 80's.

In reply to:

What Rotel unit would that be ? It is my experience that Rotel units will give at least 50% increase in power when running a 4 ohm load.

Enjoy those new 60's and the Nad. Sounds like an awesome set up. I was looking at NAD CD players and they demoed them through that Amp. It was nice and clean sounding. Plenty of power too. I ended up buying the Music Hall cd in the end. It had a level 2 upgrade. Op amps and a few other niceties. Really improved the low frequencies. Nice rich sound. Best

Oz, I haven't seen Squirellyz around for a long time. I'm assuming you sent him a PM. If you get no response, you might call Amie and see if she will give him a phone call to see if he'd be willing to demo his system. Of course, the possibility exists that he's moved on to other speakers, or wouldn't be willing, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Thanks for the heads up. I haven't yet heard from him, so I will give Amie a call

I stand corrected. Rotel does not seem to give 4 ohm ratings at all. The manual I have for the RX-1052 does not have it. I just checked their web site for the power amps, and they also do not give a 4 ohm rating.

Sorry!

Thanks! I am really liking it. I got a new tuner today, a Yamaha. Is Music Hall a brand name? What is a level 2 upgrade? And a Op amps?
Newbie alert, newbie alert!!

I got the info when I called Rotel to see about their amps and receivers pushing a 4 ohm load.They were the ones that told me that they give at least 50% more power into 4 ohm.

If you were to look at their multichannel amp specs they do give a power rating @ 4 ohm.

Yeah... Music Hall is a pretty well respected name. They are more known for their audiophile turntables. The upgrades are internal replacements of cheaper parts for more expensive ones that are directly responsible for the music you hear.How's that for a very technical answer. It's all too technical for me to explain. There is more information on the Music Hall and the upgrades here.

Many here will dis this upgrade stuff. All I know is my CD player sounds incredible. Better than most any I have auditioned and I have a listened to many. They are generally well reviewed in press and web reviews.
