I know what you are saying but I don't bother with radio, more to play my old CDs and Bluetooth Youtube music from my phone...

Haha. 300w my middle testicle.

Says it was £89.99, so you're saving a fiver

Could you hook this up to a tv and play movies at 300w?

Argos eBay have a Bush 200w soundbar with subwoofer for £57. And it has Bluetooth.

Has anyone come across a good price for something similar buy with radio as well pls thanks

If they are following the usual scam, it will be 300watts peak to peak @ 10% Total harmonic distortion (THD)

So about 1-2 watts RMS in real life.

It certainly looks like the usual manufacturers bull plop but they state RMS rather than peak (I still don't believe the hype)

On Panasonic's site it states:
Power Output (TOTAL POWER) RMS 300W *1

notes:
*1 RMS30% Power Output


So I guess they've run a test where the equipment has been shown to produce a momentary maximum of 300 watts (combined from both speakers) at a given frequency for a given fraction of a second. Essentially it can produce a loud noise for a very brief time with a certain amount of distortion..... before the thing blew up I suspect.

I think something like 10 to 15watts per channel RMS is probably a much more realistic figure.

I noticed the same on another "Music Centre" they make, but the user manual calls it "Total Power", and never mentions RMS; which means Peak2Peak and is NEVER a good indication of quality, especially when they dont give any references for how it was tested or what the THD was.

FYI, RMS is the power output across the speaker range, and not the amount of output from adding up all the speaker, so that TOTAL POWER is a big red flag.

I am guessing whoever writes this tat doesnt know what RMS stands for, or how it is calculated.

Yes I suspect they've put RMS instead of PMPO
(I used to sell these things 20 years ago and back then they were doing similar tricks with cobbling together outrageous figures like this)

Usually you'd open up the speaker and find it was rated as 10watts @ 8Ohm and somehow they'd list the thing as having 150watts PMPO

RMS is usually at 0.1% THD, and PMPO typically is at 10% THD; 1% would make your ears bleed and 10% would blow the speaker cones due to the heat build up from clipping.

Another one that you dont hear much of these days is "Music Power", which is typically the maximum postive sinewave output at the same THD as the RMS rating.

Not if you live on the coast where there's no DAB signal lol
