Network capabilities are a huge focus for consumer electronics as of late, and Integra has certainly taken notice of this. With four new networking receivers and a pair of network capable preamps, Integra hopes to cover a large range of consumer needs.
Dubbed the DTR-40.1, DTR-50.1, DTR-70.1 and DTR-80.1, Integra’s new receivers feature HD audio decoding, Dolby ProLogic IIz, and a variety of Audyssey functions. Streaming audio is possible from a networked PC or storage drive, and also from providers such as Rhapsody, Sirius Internet Radio, and Pandora.
The lower end DTR-40.1 and DTR-50.1 – at $1,000 and $1,400 respectively – feature 7.1 channel audio output and Faroudja DCDi Cinema processing. The DTR-40.1 is capable of 100 watts over seven channels with the DTR-50.1 ramping it up to 135W.
On the high end, the DTR-70.1 and DTR-80.1, which run $2,000 and $2,800, take the output up a notch with 9.2 channel capability. Both are THX Ultra2 Plus certified and offer HQV Reon-VX video processing as well as the increasingly popular Dolby Volume. The DTR-70.1, which offers 7 HDMI inputs and 2 HDMI outputs, puts out 140 watts over nine channels, while the DTR-80.1 ups the inputs by one and has an output of 9x145W.
The receivers are shipping now, and a similar line of preamplifiers is expected this October.
