I don't know whether the power difference for the effects channels (65W for the NAD, 100W for the Monolith) would be significant for most people.
The Monolith weighs 93.2 lbs (42.3 kg). The Emotiva, 53 lbs (24 kg).
If you care about power efficiency, the Emotiva may be superior. I have an XPA3 Gen3 used for LCR with a Denon AVR-X4300H. The XPA runs relatively cool.
