16ohm speakers with a 8 ohm amp?

Hi All,

Is it okay to use 16 ohm speakers with a 8 ohm integrated? I am considering ZU Soulfly speakers with a Primaluna Tube. I assume I would give up some power. Does anyone know how much?

My other option would be the ZU Omen deF Mk Ii which are 8 ohms.

Absolutely no problem, and you shouldn't be concerned about a lack of power given the Zu speaker's high sensitivity.
