That's right on. I was given a "Cube", and it had no bass. At the time I had a Scott 370R receiver, and in sound quality, and bass output it put the Carver to shame.
I had a beautiful "Champagne" one I used with an Advent 300 Receiver - driving my Obelisks. While is mainly was up to the task, I built myself a Dynaco 410 and in the A-B test of similar powered amps the Dynaco won - so the little 7 lb cube was sold to a friend. Like the Kenwood KA7300 I owned before it (1977?), they are still owned and running with the friends they were sold to... As are the Obelisks and the Stereo 410 that were sold together to aid in purchasing engagement rings... Marriage still going too! LOL

I had a cube too. It sounded okay but I never drove it hard. Mainly it was cute looking. But it behaved rather oddly at times and I was told it was very hard to fix. I believe you about the wattage. I think he was using some proprietary measuring technique ...
It's never too late to turn back the clock.
