Hi everyone. I'm putting together my first surround sound system (I've had stereo component systems for a long time). I had picked up an Outlaw 976 pre-pro shortly before they stopped selling them, but life got in the way before I could finish the system. \nNow, I have been looking at the Monolith 200 watts per channel amplifiers since Audioholics gave them a great review when they first came out in 2016 and Gene spoke highly of them recently on the YouTube channel. However, I noticed that they are sold through Amazon (for inflated prices) where they had a high percentage of bad user reviews over their reliability and customer service.\nI don't usually put much faith in Amazon customer reviews, but I'm feeling a little hesitant now since I have no desire to send back a 90 lb. amp for repairs or refund. \nI'd appreciate any information\/comments based on personal experience with Monoprice amplifiers.
