A/V Receiver AMP - Output Power specs - Audio Output ? - Output Power ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Output power is typically advertised to show how speakers will be driven. My question is. Does the output power specs also apply to audio output headphones?

 

 

Also

 

 

If the answer to the above question is yes. Will the output power seen below, drive most headphones to their maximum potential?

 

 

 

Output Power

  • 8Ohms 1kHz : 100W + 100W
  • 8Ohms 20-20kHz : 90W + 90W
  • (8Ohms 1kHz) THD : 1%
  • (8Ohms 20-20kHz) THD : 0.09%
  • Output Power (JEITA 10%)/ Rated Output Power(0.09% 20Hz-20kHz 4Ohm) : 10%
  • Output Power (JEITA 10%)/Rated Output Power(0.09% 20Hz-20kHz 8Ohm) : 130W
  • Total : 945W (135W/ch x 7 (8?, 1kHz, 0.05% THD))

This is from a stereo receiver right not a surround receiver (Rating is for two channels so I gotta believe this is the case) and 8 ohm is a typical ohm rating for a single coil speaker.

 

The short answer is no.... Those are your stereo output ratings for your speakers... they are unrelated to your headphone out... and that much juice would destroy your headphones in a matter of seconds.

 

That being said, the headphone out on most stereo receivers is very good at driving full size cans. On stereo receivers they rarely pay much attention to specifying the headphone out.... maybe if you dig through tech specs on your receiver.... but I wouldn't worry about it.... it'll will likely get the job done.
