It has 350 watt rms output, 70 watts a channel, 5 channel surround sound . That is a very conservative wattage rating. It has plenty of extra power. You will never need to use all of it's power. It has the DTS decoder for the best audio cinema sound, as well as the regular Dolby Pro Logic and others. It also has digital optical inputs so it is compatible with the new digital televisions. You can hook it up to 2 front speakers, 2 side, 2 rear and 1 main speaker. Also has output for subwoofer. 1 missing knob cover but it works.
