Integra Debuts First AV Receiver with Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth - DTR-30.5
05/16/13 - UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (5/16/13) -- Integra, a brand whose products are

specifically engineered for custom audio/video installers, has

introduced a mid-level home theater receiver with key new home

integration and performance features for 2013. The Integra DTR-30.5 is

the company's first receiver with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

interfaces for modern media connectivity. It is also Integra's first

with 4K pass-through and up-scaling for the new large Ultra HD high

definition video displays, and it includes new Phase-Matching Bass

technology for exceptional sound clarity.

With so many different music source options available today, this

receiver has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to stream music from phones,

tablets, and computers. This gives it the capability to playback high

definition music files in FLAC, DSD, ALAC, HD 24/96 and HD 24/192

formats from HD music download services.

Connection options include six HDMI inputs with two outputs for

connection to streaming services via Apple TV, Roku, blu-ray players

and other sources, a USB port, and a hard-wire Ethernet connection.

These networking features also provide access to the widest selection

of audio streaming content such as Spotify, Pandora, Rhapsody, SiriusXM

Internet Radio and Tune In. In addition to all this new connectivity,

the DTR-30.5 also provides extensive support for legacy digital and

analog sources, including a phono input for connecting a turntable.

Increasingly, custom installers are equipping premium home theaters

with the new 4K Ultra HD video displays, which are the pixel equivalent

of four current 1080p HD screens. The 4K pass-through feature allows

Ultra HD video signals to connect directly to these video display

without interference or modification. For conventional video sources,

it includes the remarkable Marvel QDEO processor to convert, or

"upscale," lower resolution video to a full 4K presentation via HDMI.

Sound quality has always been a key factor in Integra's design process.

The new Phase Matching Bass optimizes low frequencies while preserving

mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting -- which can affect sound

quality -- by synchronizing the timing of different frequencies. The

result is deep, well-defined bass that won’t overwhelm vocals or

strings.

With plenty of audio power on tap to drive each of seven loudspeakers

in a home theater surround system, the Integra DTR-30.5 is rated at 95

Watts per channel. The amplifier sections employ the company's

three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry and Wide Range Amplifier

Technology (WRAT) -- a low negative-feedback topology for low

distortion and high dynamic range.

The Integra DTR-30.5 includes an array of modern and very useful

features. These include InstaPreview, which allows users to monitor

multiple program sources with this HDMI variant of picture-in-picture.

There is also Mobile High-definition Link (MHL) to deliver HD video and

up to 7.1 channels of audio from compatible Andriod smart devices and

other products.

In addition to the 7.1 channel Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio

processing that is part of the HDMI spec, the DTR-30.5 uses Dolby® Pro

Logic® IIz to provide alternate surround option for front height

channels. Audyssey MultEQ is included for automated room setup using an

included microphone. Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume provide

further sound enhancements.

Custom installers will appreciate the inclusion of Powered Zone 2 and

Zone 2 preouts, two IR inputs and one output for remote control

integration, and three 12-volt triggers. A bi-directional RS-232 port

is available for connection to some home automation systems.

The Integra DTR-30.5 Network AV receivers begin shipping to dealers

this month with a suggested retail price of $1,000.
