I get the power ratings now days on recievers and AVRs being very optomistic sometimes but, I am currious about two older recievers I have. The first is a 1984 vintage Akai unit that I know puts out 40 wpc. On the back panel, it states total wattage usage as 120. The second is a slightly newer Pioneer unit that I think was rated at 50 wpc and the wattage usage is 190! So, where does the extra 40 and 90 watts respectively go in these units? Thats a lot! Or were these under rated?
