The Meaning Of 

Wattage In An 


The power of an amp is usually measured in watts. This is why 

you will find something like 100 watts per channel. What does 

this mean? Is this receiver able to deliver those 100 watts? How 

about the home theater systems that are labeled as 1000 watts? 

Does this mean that they are more powerful as compared to the 

2000 A/V receivers? The truth of the matter is that all watts 

are not created equal.

Unlike what many people think, 

power  ratings  is  not  the  right 

way of measuring the loudness 

potential of the receiver, HTIB 

or amplifier against one another. 

The  more  the  power  that  you 

will  pound  on  the  speaker  the 

louder  it  will  manage  to  play. 

However,  more  power  doesn’t 

mean that the watts will sound

While many of us like having more rather than less power, the catch is While many of us like having more rather than less power, the catch is 

that there isn’t a reliable way in which consumers can learn about the 

given amp, HTIB or receiver wattage. However, if you are searching for 

a certain specification that will work well for you, you should consider 

the weight. The truth of the matter is that the stuff that makes the 

power are usually heavy.

When you check under the premium amplifier or the expensive A/V 

receiver, you will notice the humongous power transformer. When you 

have some powerful amps, these will require some bigger transformers 

that are able to pull lots of power from wall outlets. The high current 

transformers are in most cases quite heavy. This is on top of the fact 

that other parts that are related to the power supply are also quite 

heavy and are not very cheap. The truth of the matter is that most of the 

A/V receivers that are worth $500 are not in a position to deliver the 

spec­ed power into the seven channels. There are even some that are not 

able to deliver even a third of the wattage that they claim to have. 

Perhaps the reason why most manufacturers are able to get away with 

the fraud is that most consumers do not listen that loud.
