80w/ch with a 35w total power consumption, how does that even work?

Save yourself the energy of explaining…going by all the op’s recent comments it’s clear they have zero idea as to what these and similar audio items purpose of being actually are.

You are right the specs state 80W into 4Ohm load and 40W into 8Ohm. Digging deeper into power consumption I was able to verify that the power supply is actually 6.75A at 24VDC so thats actually around 160W, a bit optimistic to assume almost zero loss (and totally impossible if we assume the 80W stated in rms) but at least its in the ballpark. Apparently the 35W number quoted in the specs is the estimated power consumption during normal use.
