Hi, does anyone have any experience with the Sony STR-DE698/S 7.1 receiver?

I keep seeing different specs mentioned as to whether it output 100 or 150 watts per channel too, is there a definitive answer?

Anyway, just wondering what people's impressions were and if there were any alternatives for around the same money?

Thanks,
Dan.

Both are correct for the 698, as they are the sound measurements in 2 different formats, its late & I haven't got the time to look up all the technical explainations to give to you, so a basic explaination is, its abit like celsius & farenheit for temperature reading, one gives you a bigger number than the other, even though they are the same,
& of course the marketing people like to make there product seem better than a competitors, its not a very nice practice, & most manufactures under pressure from consumer groups stopped doing it a while a go,
so the 100 rating would generally be the rating to use in comparing with other products.
