What are those wattage numbers?
I am looking at a number of home theater systems. They are feature rich (eg DLNA, connects to Internet directly etc) and are pretty low cost. One thing that puzzles me is the power numbers.
For example, the Sony BDV-E190 manual says POWER OUTPUT (rated) to the various speakers are 40W L, 40W R, 40W C, 40W LS, 40W RS, 70W C and 70W SW. But the total power consumption is only 95W!
What exactly do those speaker numbers mean?
