Ok, there are $300 receiver with 100w, and $2000 power amp with 100w. What would be different? Is it just a matter of someone lying or bending truth in terms of their spec? I know high current gives you better sound even given same wattage. However, even that "high current" seems to be relative since pretty much every makers say their amp is high current. So, back to wattage, what would I get from 200w amp which I couldn't get from 100w amp? Would it just sound louder at same volume? Or, would it bring out more details in low volume? Are all 200w amps need separate circuit to run reliably? Lots of question...
