Those are correct specs and the same as in the manual. Thats with all channels driven into 8 ohm loads. All channels driven into 4 ohm loads is 185wpc.
As for sound quality, I own one and give it my highest recommendation. I listen to 2 channel most of the day. It puts out 150wpc into 8 ohms driving 4 front speakers, each speaker using a separate channel. You can spend more money on an amp, but unless you need more power than what the UPA-7 can deliver, you won't get better sound.
I also own a pair of their dipole surround speakers - ERD-1s. These are quality built speakers and also sound very good. Better than the 3 way bookshelf JBL E50s I replaced them with. They have much better mid and highs than the JBLs.
Now I'm just saving up the bux for their new tower 8.3s. If they don't do the job I'll be looking at the Salk Song Towers next.
This hobby is getting expensive as hell!
