Maximizing the Potential of HD DVD with the Latest High-Definition Audio and Video Developments

Integra’s debut HD DVD player has definitely been worth the wait. While other companies’ first-generation players offered limited capabilities—due to a lack of high-definition surround-sound codecs, ineffective digital connectivity and a scarcity of content—the DHS-8.8 HD DVD player packs the key technologies that will take high-definition HD DVD content to its full potential.This player is one of the first to handle high-bit-rate streaming of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, as well as the groundbreaking precision of HQV Reon-VX video processing. Serving as the ideal foil for Integra's acclaimed high definition-ready A/V receivers, the DHS-8.8 is perfectly timed to deliver on the promise of high-definition home entertainment.
