Question about output power
post-10645375

#### Sam21

AMP A outputs 700 mW @ 32 ohms

AMP B outputs 700 mW @ 32 ohms per channel

which AMP outputs more power @ 32 ohms ?

They output the same power per channel, but it could be possible that AMP A has only one channel or is mono.

It is most likely that both amps have the exact same output rating, but worded it differently.

mW is power unless you meant mV.?

Agreed. Headphone amps will typically be rated per channel as headphones are 2 channel listening devices. It's not until you get into speaker amps where people might be buying multichannel amps that have the sum potential power listed for all channels, or monoblocks which are one channel, that you would have to watch for that distinction.

I am trying to compare these two amps:

Lake People G109-S :

Max. output level:

> 18.8 Veff in 600 ohms = 590 mW
> 13.8 Veff in 100 ohms = 1900 mW
> 10.7 Veff in 50 ohms = 2300 mW
> 7.8 Veff in 50 ohms = 1900 mW
> 3.7 Veff in 16 ohms = 410 mW

SCHIIT  Mjolnir :

Maximum Power, 32 ohms: 8.0W RMS per channel
Maximum Power, 50 ohms: 5.0W RMS per channel
Maximum Power, 300 ohms: 850mW RMS per channel
Maximum Power, 600 ohms: 425mW RMS per channel

The question is, which one has more power at 300 ohm and 600 ohm ?
