my AVR has separate independent toroidal power supplies for each amp and my speakers are 94 db efficient. I and well ffamiliar with that and the fact that every three dB is a doubling the power. if not on a shared an so I don't understand why with increasing channels be available output will drop

I don't understand your question. What output is dropping?

The article was stating that on many avr the specs are given with one or 2 channels driven as the number of channels increases, peak output (available watts per channel) drops. If each amp is independent why the drop as more channels are engaged?

Efficiency and the use of a single power supply to drive all the amps. I think you said your receiver has discrete power supplies. If so then there shouldn't be much difference.
