Hi there,
This may be a dumb question but... I have a pair of bookshelves I want to use as rears that have a maximum power handling as 80Watts but the Receiver I have's outputs are 75W RMS, so I would not have any issues with the setup of the two correct?

Thanks.

none whatsoever.

Simple universal rule though: as you turn up the volume, as soon as you start hearing distortion that's a signal to back off. Usually what happens is people keep cranking it up and then end up damaging the speakers.

Excellent. I want to use them as my rears, should I connect them to the front outputs just to see their limits until cracking or should I break them in first?

I probably wouldn't bother, rears only do maybe 10% of HT work anyways, they are really an afterthought unless you do multi-channel music with dvd-a/sacd.
