So what's happening with these new amps coming out these days? I'm using an Onkyo amp from 5 years ago (TX SA 805) it cost me ¥100.000 (which is about a grand). And it outputs 180watts. I've decided to upgrade to a newer amp and looked at all the jp brands. Onkyo, Yamaha, denon, pioneer, marantz. And they ALL seem so underpowered! Only the ones costing twice as much as mine have 180watts or higher. The ones priced in the same range as mine are all much lower. (120w/140w) Sure they all use QDEO/HQV and upscale to 4k (which is why I want one) but why the drop in power? To get a new updated amp that has the same power as my 5 year old amp I need to spend twice as much! (I'm just looking at jp brands since I live there) Is it the same in the Uk?
