I want to repurpose mine for HT and use an Oppo 103 or 105 as a source.

Does anyone know if the 5800 is stable with a 4 ohm load? It is rated at 6 ohms but not 4. I normally would not worry because I do not drive 2 channel that hard, but this is for theater and that tends to be more demanding.
Totally stable at 4 ohms.... I ran it for years (and at high HT Volume) with my 4 ohm M&K S150/ss150 setup in 7.1. I still have the M&K's too. They are running a HT with a Denon AVR-4311ci and they continue to do a great job.
