Hey Flavio!

Thanks for posting that link... good timing. I actually was just getting an update from Hobie, myself. Not too much to add, beyond the fact that the HTP-1 appears to have every onboard capability we hoped it would have. Sounds like it is really... realllly... close to to going public. They're working on the interface at the moment.

Monoprice should be commended on not pushing this thing to market early. My level of expectation is super high at this point.

4K is right in line, if not a touch better than, competition... way better than something like a Trinov or Storm product.

I'm super curious to know what the market space for gear like this really is. It can't be big. How many enthusiasts own a speaker array worthy of its services??

Can't wait for this one to hit the streets!

I am hoping the reviews on this are as good as I expect them to be...if so I will be buying one to replace my Yamaha cxa5100. I am especially concerned with reliability as it is a pain to ship from Mexico. I know ATI built them, and I have been told their reliability is top notch, and even better than Yamaha.

Thank you. I can now put this out of my mind until I see your review!

Me too! I'm sure it's going to be a dog fight to get one of the review samples. Don't want to dig too deep into the inside baseball of working with various companies, but it's REALLY hard to tell what will be available and when.

Does anyone know if the Monolith triggers are individually assignable...as in turn on amp A when stereo is selected, and turn on amps A and B when a 5.1 is selected, Etc.?
