    I have a pair of Technics speakers. On them it says: 140W music, and 70W DIN.

    What's DIN?

    Thanks,
    Peter

    I believe it is a German standards organization, and that in this context what it refers to is a specific way of measuring energy consumption (wattage). How it translates into real-world performance I haven't a clue.

    DIN is the German Institute for Standardization. Together with its subsidiaries, it is dedicated to providing the whole range of services that support the development, distribution, and application of standards.

    From its web site
