I know you're joking about bogus power ratings, but it's different from what you say. The manual does indeed list that it consumes 175 watts, but things differ after that. I will confine myself to the information in the manual, only giving numbers for the US market.

(8 Ohm, 40 Hz to 20 kHz, 0.2% THD)
[North America etc ................................................. 100 W + 100 W

So, yeah, it claims to output 25watts more than it draws!


Dynamic power per channel
(8 ohm/6 ohm/4 ohm/2 ohm IHF).................... 125 W/150 W/165 W/180 W

And sure enough, all of those, driving two channels, are more than the unit draws.

Unfortunately, that series of product is most likely to be considered by people who don't understand that those figures manipulate people to make them seem greater than they can be (the figures, not the people).
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
