It seems that, unless you preface it with the word "tube", a monoblock is a high power, mono, solid state, 12 volt amplifier as manualman described.

I still don't use that term. Look in the Allied Radio catalog. They were called basic amplifiers. No need to change the name to some cutesy term.

I have never used the term but I often see it in print.

"Basic", "Integrated", "mono" prefixed ahead of amplifier doesn't seem to have the zing that the current generation is eating up in ads.
Advertise a monoblock amplifier (most likely they anticipate it being high power) and they'll be banging down your door.
