The owners manual linked on Crutchfield's site follows what Crutchfield and Pioneer have listed on their web sites (35x4). Crutchfield's version is a scanned PDF of a printed manual in the older look/style of Pioneer's stuff from the late 90s and 00s. The metadata from the PDF says created Jan 2001, modified Jan 2007. The version on manualslib.com is like the version you attached a picture of and in the style of Pioneer's modern owners manuals. It is also clearly a direct to PDF export, not a scan and was created in May 2012.
Cool observation, wrong logic however. The successor model is the GM-X364. The same exact amplifier with the exact same power specs (according to the Pioneer Website anyway), same heatsink, same barrier strip terminals. Hold the press!!.....different paint scheme. Low power mainstream brand 4 channel class A/B amplifiers are something of a weird obsession/fetish for me. 😁Its also printed in the title GM-X354
Exactly that. It matters to me. Thank you for the exhaustive and well thought reply. I've owned the amp for over 10 years, but never had an owners manual, until I requested one be sent directly from Pioneer. I suppose it wouldn't be surprising if the home based tech support just emailed me a manual from a 3rd party owner manual database that contained a typo. Then again..Is there a specific reason this matters, as in trying to match to speakers with limited power capacity?
History shows that you will also disagree with this, but your speakers ( any speaker actually) wont care if you are sending it 35watts or 50watts. Undistorted output will be close enough that you would not be able to pick one over the other.Exactly that. It matters to me. Thank you for the exhaustive and well thought reply.
