A guy I know who's been in the business for a while told me to be careful while shopping for ''mono-block'' amps.
He made it seem as if even though some amplifiers that claim to be mono-block, by the process of the way they work, they are not able capable of
performing single channel amplification as a supposed "proper" mono-block amplifier would. What do you suppose he meant. By this I could only assume he was referring to higher end models but, are there amps which claim to be mono-blocks which by process are in fact employing methods to replicate/reproduce the actual process a true single channel amplifier would (such as a work around). For the purpose of clarification by what specifications are ''true'' mono-block amps defined. Is there anything specific I should look to avoid or look for towards the future purchase of amps that say they are mono-block amplifiers. Thanks. Also I apologize for the misleading info I had given on a previous thread, I had assumed by definition a true mono-block amp had to be 1 ohm stable but it's more likely it was spoken to me in relation to my current system.
