I hope you will not take this as criticism, but I do not regard this as a valid test. It needs to be blind and level-matched. This was not.Did it in a med sized sound room with a comparator switchbox. No volt meter used. For there to be a difference it had to be noticeable and repeatable. Yamaha product was the mainline therefore only Yamaha gear was in this comparison. When turning up the power levels it was pretty obvious the 130 W/ch was superior. No volts meter required.
I remain unconvinced of Amir's claim that "good dynamics" of bookshelf speakers requies huge amounts of power. I would really like to see a level-matched blind test of this claim.
