all channels driven

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



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.

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
