440 watts is what it says on the back of the amp.

That would be the input wattage, I would think.

Yep... power output to the speakers + power dissipated as heat (and possibly fan noise ) = 440 W.

Michael, forget the new amp bit. Your 1015 will supply the rated power, as it's legally required to do. A 140 watt amp would have about 0.67dB more capacity at momentary peaks than a 120 watt amp, e.g. 110.67dB compared with 110dB, which is insignificant. Your M60s use about 1 watt most of the time at a comfortably loud listening level and it's highly unlikely that even at momentary peaks more than about 100 watts would be used. Your 1015 is fine; relax.

That rating is for input power, not output. Because amps are less than 100% efficient -- some far less than 100% -- 440 watts in does not equal 440 watts out.

I can see where reading the information supplied on the back of this particular amp can be a bit confusing.

that is not the output power, look on your freaking microwave or any other electronic that does not output audio, they all have a rated power. A computer has a rated power supply also, same diff.
