SOURCE: no audio output - Marantz 2238
This can be as simple as a poor connection somwhere in the voltage regulator circuit or a defective driver transistor or output transistor. In any case, this is a simple repair for any shop that works on vintage receivers. If it is the outputs, that will be the most expensive repair from a parts perspective. The outputs will cost in the $5-$10 range for each one and it could be 2-4 pieces. If you wish to attempt this repair yourself, you will need a multimeter that has a diode checker. Let me know and I'll provide additional details and instructions.

SOURCE: Amplifier Power & Speakers
It's a common misconception that a high-powered amplifier will hurt a speaker when the opposite is more true.
Power ratings are specified within certain parameters at or below certain distortion levels. The problem with UNDER-powered amplifiers is that when they reach for the loudness beyond their clean capabilities they get really dirty and start to distort their output. Distortion will kill even a good speaker faster than a loud clean signal will. Stronger amps run more within their comfort zones and rarely strain for more than brief periods.
In no case should you ever try to do like Spinal Tap in their Mockumentary and turn the volume to '11'. ;-)
The HK's are fine. Speakers are a matter of (mostly) personal preference while amps running within their design limitation don't really sound different so go try out some speakers, see if they'll let you audition them at home and have some fun.
