Monoblocks are two separate amplifiers, one for the left channel, and one for the right. Two monoblocks are needed for a stereo set, and home theater applications can use three or more. You definately get reduced crosstalk, because each channel uses its own separate power supply. You can also place your amps closer to your speakers, reducing the length of speaker cables needed. But you will probably need two sets of power cords(if you are into that thing), and perhaps longer interconnects, depending on where you locate your amps. If you do not know what monoblocks are, or are new to the hobby, perhaps a single stereo amp is best. But if you have the cash and room, or are into serious home theater, its an excellent way to go!
