Also, just to be clear, the limitation isn't about how much external amplification you have. It's the fact that there are only 4 height speaker outputs, but only Front Height can be "shared" among...

It's definitely a current limiter of some kind. In the Audioholics review they measured power at like 25w/ch in 4ohm mode (which piggybacks on ECO mode). Now that's probably enough for most...
