Three new 9.2-channel receiver models have been announced.
Integra has revealed its new Dot 2 Series of AV receivers geared toward the custom installation market. The collection includes the DRX-5.2 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver (MSRP $1,700) the DRX-4.2 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver (MSRP $1,400), and the DRX-3.2 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver (MSRP $1,000).
The DRX-5.2 is rated for 120 Watts per channel (8 Ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08 % THD, 2 Channels Driven, FTC), while the DRX-4.2 offers 100 W/channel (8 Ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08 % THD, 2 Channels Driven, FTC), and the base model DRX-3.2 provides 90 W/channel (8 Ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08 % THD, 2 Channels Driven, FTC). All three models feature support for up to 5.2.4 or 7.2.2 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X configurations, and the DRX-4.2 and DRX-5.2 can also support 7.2.4 setups with an external amp. In addition, the Dot Series receivers will be the first Integra models to include "Works with Sonos" certification, allowing the receivers to integrate into a user's existing Sonos ecosystem with a Sonos Connect. When the receivers are paired to a Sonos Connect, customers can send any music or source from the Sonos app to the receiver. Likewise, users can group their receiver to other Sonos devices on the network (firmware for this feature will arrive later this month).
