Somethings been bothering me this morning. I have a Kenwood something or other reciever that came in a HTIB like 2 years ago and it's 100x5. I didnt buy the HTIB but i know it couldnt of cost more then $400 if even that, so why in the heck is the reciever so cheap when most other Recievers cost like $1,000 just to get 100wpc except Yamaha. This Kenwood thing can only make it to like -28 Master Volume and then it'll turn off if something big happens, i can get that volume at -22 Master Volume on my Yamaha and my yamaha will go down to -14 before it turns off (has to get hot first). Wanna know why the thing gives out so easy, -28 on the Kenwood is like 75-92db field from 3 meters away. Sayin a reciever can do more watts RMS then it really can suck! Also, whats with H/K, low watts, but very expensive?
