| 09/20/10 - ATLANTA (9/20/10) -- Integra, the leading brand of audio-video components specifically engineered for custom installation, has introduced a range of new home theater receivers and separate AV components at the 2010 CEDIA Expo which opens here today. The highlights of this introduction include full-line 3D-Ready HDMI 1.4a interfaces with lossless Dolby True HD and DTS Master Audio sound. They also offer improved audio and video processing, expanded networking and Internet Radio capabilities, ISF video calibration, and more. All of the new receivers, processors, and a Blu-ray player are THX certified.
The new lineup consists of four AV receivers, two AV controllers, and two Blu-ray disc players, all of which are now shipping to its dealer base of custom installers and systems integrators. Integra's products are not sold through national chains or online retailers.
"Our commitment to Integra's dealer base is strong," said Keith Haas, Director of Sales. "We promised them that our products would always lead the state of the art, and today's new lineup is the clearest demonstration that we have kept that promise. We have kept Integra exclusive to the custom installer and systems integration marketplace, making it available only from our authorized 'brick and mortar' dealers--not on the Internet--not through distributors--and we intend to keep it that way."
Headlining these introductions are the DHC-80.2 AV preamp controller and DTR-80.2 and DTR-70.2 high-end AV receivers. All three are 9.2-channel channel systems, THX Ultra2 Plus Certified, and network capable products that also include Audyssey's new MultEQ XT32 premium room correction technology and Audyssey Sub EQ HT that properly integrates the sound of dual subwoofers.
Integra is also introducing the DHC-40.2, a mid-priced AV preamp controller, and the DTR 40.2 and DTR-50.2 AV receivers. These are 7.2 channel systems with THX Select 2 Plus certification, network capabilities, and Audyssey MultEQ.
Also debuting at CEDIA are the DBS-50.2 and DBS 30.2 Blu-ray Players. The former is a premium THX Certified player with 1080p upscaling using a new Marvell Qdeo HD Video processor. Both offer an extensive range of features including video on demand.
All these products are now available from Integra's dealer base of custom installers.
