    for example was reading a review for a 120w x 7 receiver and to my surprise labtests showed 32w x 7 @8ohms/0.1%THD

    so going through different spec sheets I found out that only few makes quote real power ratings, for example NAD & Rotel

    can you suggest any other makes as I'm interested in a true 100w x 7 receiver

    cheers

    Harmon Kardon, NAD, Rotel, Pioneer, Marantz all tend to quote the most realistic power figures.

    Avoid Denon/Yamaha/Sony, as they'll beef them up to no end.

    Pionner keep quoting DIN figures which are misleading also.

    looked at HK, Pioneer, Marantz as you suggested but couldn't find what I was looking for

    I need something like this (more interested in movies than music=stereo):

    NAD: 7 x 110W Minimum Continuous Power into 4 / 8 ohms, all channels driven simultaneously

    Rotel: In multi-channel mode the RSX-1065 delivers 5 x 100 watts per channel RMS, all channels driven, and up to 200 watts per channel under dynamic conditions
