To you they might but to others maybe not, I've listened to the halo series and loved the sound of them but don't feel they smoke my emotiva separates set up. I listened to b&w 802 diamond series with 15k worth of marantz mono block amps and didn't enjoy it as much as my system or the 804d with a Bryston 4bs amp and pre amp that was in the room next to it.

So I'm an emotiva owner and would consider many different brands of amps like naim, Hegel, parasound, belles, and many more I just haven't found anything I've heard that has made me say I gotta have this and get ride of what I currently have.
Not saying that won't happen someday but for now I'm more than happy with what I have. So I say go and listen to as much gear as you can and buy what you think is best! Sometimes it might be the most expensive others not but don't limit yourself! Its a great hobby that many people can enjoy in different ways. One day I would like to move up the dynaudio chain to some new contours but that doesn't mean somebody else wouldn't like something else better.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is anyone who loves audio shouldn't let their selves be limited to any one brand go out and take a listen and let your ears make the choice!

Felt the same way until my buddy hooked up Atmos with his Marantz 7702 mkii. All I'm gonna say is my Emotiva is going up for sale. In truth I don't like the Emotiva I have as well as the Outlaw 950 I had.

I think this day and age with the competition out there , with so many awesome choices with high end or entry level... I don't get the appeal for Emotiva ... I have listened to them on a few demos , yeah for there price point there better than most recievers but come on spend some more money and get a real piece of audio gear... Just saying

You say that Emotiva is better than most Receiver's, are you speaking about EMO-AVR's or the EMO- External Amp's they are known for?

No comparing the Emo amps and there processors sound quality to some of the better receiver manufactures . Not a fair comparison though a pre/pro amp combo to most recievers. Unless your listening to some of the high end recievers like... Macintosh,Arcam,Cambridge,Rotel, Anthem and others....That can give some of the pre/pro amp combos a run for there money in sound quality.

How do Emotiva amps compare against the Monoprice Monolith's?

I'm planning on buying my very first amp for my HT system and would like get something with great sq and at a good value for the money.

Monoprice is the king in value for performance right now. Designed by ATI, made in the US, and very sturdy and well built. Cheaper than emotiva but i do hear it runs hot, and are quite heavy by design. Ive owned a few emotivas and really like the styling, as they look very premium in person. And I would say they compete admirably with my parasound halo amps, though not as refined and controlled. Good luck.

Value is subjective. I would really recommend going to your local store and auditioning different electronics.
