    Yes, you are reading it Wrong.

    No, the amp does not have 1%THD.

    You are not understanding Maximum power measurements.

    The amplifier is typically ran as high power as it can reach UNTIL the THD is cataloged at 1%.

    This value then becomes the maximum power output. Again, this is relative to 1% THD. (Note: This is usually a fast ramp at the wattage listed. Meaning the THD is MUCH lower a couple watts below the maximum number cited.)

    In normal operation, a few watts less than it's maximum and below, the amplifier is likely much much lower than 0.01% THD.

      Thanks Andre.

      I think this is a typical graph.
