Somone tried to tell me that English amplifiers give more power for their ratings because English watts were different than "American" watts. Example: An Ashdown 300 actually gives over 500 "American" watts. (Ashdown is made in U.K.) This sounds like bullocks to me, but I've been known to have gaping holes in my wordly perceptions. I thought a watt was a watt - international unit. Am I iggernant?
