    Someone in another (american) HT forum informed that the "Sound and Vision" Magazine has reviewed the Onkyo 696 giving it an extremely poor performance for power output with all 5 channel driven. This 696 was way below the standard of even the 474's power of 49 watts/channel with all 5 channels driven.
    Here's the power chart:
    1 channel driven(8 ohms)............151 watts @ 1Khz
    1 channel driven(4 ohms)............ 74 watts @ 1Khz
    5 channels driven(8 ohms)............46 watts @ 1Khz (!!!!)
    I know that the latest number of british magazine "WHAT HIFI Sound & Vision" has reviewed the 595, so I am wondering if this review of the 595 gave such poor results (maybe the 696 was a defective one, or there was a misprint in the above referred to magazine).
    Thanks
    Rui
