    Monolith 5x200 Watts Per Channel Multi-Channel Home Theater Power Amplifier

    Monolith 5

    The Monolith 5 is a state-of-the-art, high-performance, audiophile-grade multichannel home theater amplifier. Rated at a full 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 300 watts per channel into 4 ohms, the Monolith 5 is capable of driving the most demanding home theater systems and reproducing the most dynamic soundtracks, while also articulating all the subtle sonic details found in music. Supercharge your existing receiver or create the foundation of a no compromise home theater system with the Monolith 5.

    Power: A true 200-watt experience. Unlike most amplifiers or receivers, the Monolith's 200 watts per channel rating is measured with all seven channels driven across the full power bandwidth of 20Hz to 20kHz into 8-ohm loads. Additionally, there is NO current limiting and there is no protection circuitry in the amplifier circuit path. Even if the speakers' impedance drops to a low level, the Monolith is robust enough that the current is never limited.

    Dynamics: High resolution audio delivers the best in music and movie soundtracks. You deserve an amplifier capable of delivering clear and clean audio across a wide dynamic range! With a more than 120dB signal to noise ratio, the Monolith 5 can clearly and accurately articulate the quietest portions, the loudest portions, and everything in between.

    Class AB: More efficient than Class A, many high end, audiophile grade amplifiers utilize a Class AB design.





    Note that the following images show the Monolith 7 model. This model (Monolith 5) has 5 channels not 7, but is otherwise identical.


     

    TWO TOROIDAL TRANSFORMERS


    No, these aren't new villains in the next giant robot movie, these are the source of an amplifier's power. Each amplifier channel gets its own set of transformer windings, and also its own storage capacitor. Essentially, each channel has its own power supply – meaning if one channel gets maxed out, the other channels are not affected.

    SPAGHETTI FREE ZONE


    Ever look behind a stereo rack and were aghast at the sight of the spaghetti entanglement of dozens of wires? Not here. Neat, clean wiring in tubing designed for the aerospace industry. Clean wiring. Clean layout. Better sound.




    CIRCUIT BOARDS


    Double sided, glass epoxy boards. Metal film resistors built to 1% tolerances. Stringent quality to ensure each circuit board functions like the last and presents the maximum in sound fidelity.

    Monolith 7

    PROTECTION CIRCUITS


    These lightning fast, optically coupled circuits are designed to detect electrical shorts from either the speakers, speaker wire, or electrical outlet. If triggered, the circuit will disengage the output, protecting the amplifier. It will then sample the affected circuit every 10 seconds and will restore output when it is safe to do so. Unlike other designs where there is fuse or relay in series with the output, which can raise the damping factor or modify the sound, our protection circuitry monitors the signal actively, but does so optically from outside the circuit path.




    SILENT COOLING


    Oversized heat sinks, instead of fans, are used to keep the amplifier as cool and as silent as possible. After all, you bought this bad boy to hear the soundtrack, right? No fans means less dust. Less dust means a longer operating life for your equipment.

    Monolith 7

    ENCLOSURE


    A rugged chassis with a powder coated finish designed to resist scratches and prevent corrosion.




    CHASSIS MOUNTED RCA JACKS


    The gold plated RCA jacks on the Monolith are mounted directly on the chassis, not on a separate internal circuit board. This allows for a firmer connection that won't loosen over time, or worse, break.

    THUMP FREE START


    Have you ever turned on your receiver or amplifier and heard a disturbing (and potentially damaging) "thump" come through your system? The Monolith is engineered with a soft start circuit that gradually powers up the unit, preventing the dreaded speaker thump, while also easing the load on household circuitry. Once fully powered, the circuit is removed from the signal chain to ensure maximum sonic clarity.

    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.
    How long is the power cord on this amps? thanks

    Is the power rating listed for all channels driven or just 2 channels driven on the 5 and 7 channel models?

    BEST ANSWER: The power rating is for all channels driven. These are hefty amps made by ATI for monoprice. You should look up the Audioholics YouTube review of these amps. They’ll give you a lot more details.

    I have the Monolith 7 and couldn’t be happier.

    Carlos R.
    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. :)

    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.

    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.

    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)
