    I see the Amp is out of stock and it says "ETA: 10/6/2018". Is the Estimated availability date on this 5 channel amp really October of 2018? Asking because I can wait a bit to buy an amp, but not almost a full year.

    Thanks,
    Ivailo S on Dec 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The amplifier should be in stock mid to late February.
    How would I hook up the Monolith 5X200 power amp to my Pioneer 94 TXH A/V receiver and OPPO 105 BD player? Which wires go where ?
    A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Above the 12 volt triggers on the back of your receiver you'll see a set of 8 output jacks labeled "Surround Back" on the bottom. These are the output jacks. You would string an RCA cable between each of the jacks to the labeled jacks on the back of the amplifier. omitting any speakers you do not use such the surround back. If you use a 7.1 system then the 5x200 isn't for you, you'd need 7x200 - Product # 14566.
    The description now states that this product has XLR inputs. This is a feature that does not appear in the images given for this product as of January 2018. Is a new hardware revision that includes XLR inputs coming when this item is back in stock?
    owen v on Jan 19, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: We wil be updating the product pages to reflect the revision soon. We have updated the Monolith 7 page, and you can look to that for reference. When these return to inventory, they will have the XLR inputs.
    Do you also have in stock of them with 220v (voltage) ?

    BEST ANSWER: I think it's either 6' or 8' long. I have too many speakers, wires & electronics in the way to tell for sure. Either way, it didn't reach my outlet, so I used power surge strip, of which Monoprice has many. Here's a good one, for example: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=11146. I love, Love, LOVE the amp. I have the Monolith 5 (200x5) and an Emotiva XPA-5 Gen 3 (250x5) .... I prefer the rich, powerful sound of the Monolith over the Emotiva...just my two cents.
    Is the front panel oh the Monolith amps plastic or metal?
    A shopper on Apr 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Metal, I believe it is aluminum.
    They are also believed to be made ny ATI Amps in CA.
    Im very pleased with the performance of this amp for the money, at times they have 20% sale, and thats when i pulled the trigger.
    Is the power rating listed for all channels driven or just 2 channels driven on the 5 and 7 channel models?

    BEST ANSWER: It’s 200 per channel... every channel. When you pick the thing up you’ll realize this thing can power anything it weighs nearly 100 lbs. it’s sleek and really affordable considering it’s power rating and build quality.
    The manual states to plug this directly to the wall outlet. However, I am concerned about surge protection and such. I have a Tripp Lite 1800W line conditioner. Assuming the rest of my equipment does not exceed the wattage capacity, would it be safe to plug the amp into the power conditioner?
    Christopher F on Oct 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It is safe to plug into a power conditioner, however, depending on how the power conditioner filters current, it may withhold current from the amplfier in moments where it quickly needs power. In this scenario, the amplifier will not reach its full performance. The amplifier has circuitry to protect it if a power surge occurs, even if it is not plugged into a line conditioner.
    What is the total height (including the rubber feet) of the Monolith? The spec states 17.0" x 7.0" x 16.5", but I can't tell if that includes the rubber feet or not. Thanks!

    BEST ANSWER: 8 inches
    Have newer home with 15 amp breakers will this run on my outlets ?
    A shopper on Dec 31, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Depends on how you have it loaded and what material you feed it. At 200 watts full output, you'll hit 8.3 amps. But here's the thing... You won't hit that that often even if you fully turn everything up. Depending on how you've loaded that circuit and how you intend to use the amp, it should be fine.

    That being said, if you plan to operate it at nightclub levels, all night long, then I expect you might blow the breaker if something else comes on while you're blasting it.

    Most likely, you'll be fine, just keep it down, I'm sure your neighbors would appreciate it. :)
    Do you also have in stock of them with 220v (voltage)?
    A shopper on Feb 23, 2018
    Does the 16.5" chassis depth in the specs include the protruding binding posts and plastic front piece?

    Emotiva or Monolith?
    I have a Monolith 5 and an Emotiva XPA-5 Gen 3 ... I prefer the sound of the Monolith ... I sounds more rich, detailed & powerful.

    Solid power but noisy center channel
    Great power and dynamic headroom. The sound quality is very good, though not quite on par with the more expensive Rotel that this amp replaced.

    Unfortunately, my center channel buzzes constantly when my HT system is powered down. I leave my amp on, which I should be able to do without noise.

    Each time I power cycle the amplifier, it goes quiet, but after a day or two, the noise returns. I've swapped cables, upgraded cables and even carefully rearranged my cables to avoid interference across cables, but nothing has helped.

    Monolith 5
    It is a very built amplifier with the help from ATI that has been well recognized in the industry for making good sounding amplifiers. The sound quality that I would rate is very good with plenty of power to spare. Good bang for your buck. I have no complaints, (Be aware that it's heavy, so be careful lifting it)

    Great Value for Money
    I have a high end Denon HT Receiver and while it was great for movies and TV, it always sounded a little muddled when it came to driving my large 4 ohm speakers for music. I hooked the Monolith up and the difference was obvious - bass was tighter, the mid range more focused and the highs were much clearer. I enjoy listening to music again.

    A Beast
    If you are looking for an amp with incredible sound quality, this is the amp for you. I have been a audiophile for many, many years. This amp is a beast. I chose the 5 channel as that is what I currently have, and do not plan to expand. I am using a Yamaha RX-A810 as a Pre-amp. Works great. Highly recommended.

    Tremendous Product! Tremendous Value!
    Excellent sounding product that is well built and designed. The Monolith Amp line makes separates a realistic option for many without sacrificing sound quality and 3 months of salary. :) Believe the hype.

    an incredible value for a new powerhouse of an amp.
    The Monolith 5x200 replaced an aging obsolete parasound with the same rated power, I have psb stratus silver i speakers that are 4ohm, my processor is a Marantz AV 7005.

    so far I'm very pleased with the sound , The parasound had more airiness to it, but I only just started using the Monolith and perhaps with some break-in time it will open up a bit.

    with that said, I'm very happy with my purchase as being a great bargain of an amp with lots of power to spare.
