Auto-Power On/Wake-Up via optical audio sensing is a yet another unique, “custom” friendly feature that, when combined with power on volume settings, makes it easier to integrate 3rd party sources like AppleTV and Sonos that are primarily app driven. Zone 2 options include Pre / Line-out for playback in another room; Zone 2 DAC for Airplay, NET and USB sources, and a Zone 2 subwoofer pre-out and independent Zone 2 bass, treble, and balance control.

Access & Play Everything

Integra makes it incredibly easy to access and enjoy audio files mastered in high-resolution and stored on a computer, media server, network-attached storage or USB thumb drive with zero loss in audio quality including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC. The DTM-40.7 includes Wi-Fi LAN compatibility, Bluetooth version 2.1, Apple AirPlay support, as well as support for Internet radio and music streaming services like Pandora, Spotify Connect, Slacker, SiriusXM, Deezer and TuneIn Radio.

The new DTR-50.6, DTR-60.6, DTR-70.6 and DHC-80.6 are all THX certified and support HDMI 2.0 for 4K/60Hz as well as next generation HDCP 2.2 copy protection. All products will be on display at CEDIA 2014 in booth 830.

With Dolby Atmos®, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill the home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth. Dolby Atmos multi-dimensional sound places and moves sounds around the room, like a bird chirping or rainfall from above, to make every sonic element come alive. As with the previously announced DTR-30.6 and DTR-40.6, the DTR-50.6, will receive a FW update in September to take advantage of the new Dolby Atmos processing. The DTR-60.6, DTR-70.6 and DHC-80.6 will support the Dolby Atmos format out of the box when they ship.

These units also support HDBaseT technology, which allows HDMI audio/video signals to be transmitted over much longer distances with a more-easily-installed cable than conventional HDMI connection. By incorporating HDBaseT technology, these new additions to the Integra offering are optimized for whole-home distribution and can connect to compatible entertainment devices in the home through a single CAT5e/6 cable. HDBaseT is the only technology that enables long-reach wired connectivity up to 325 feet (100 meters) for uncompressed full HD multimedia content including 3D and 2K/4K Ultra HD making it ideal for the custom integration specialists. The HDBaseT and HDMI output ports in these new Integra models can be assigned for either main or second zone configuration. Along with the DTR-40.6, Integra now offers five (5) models that support HDBaseT; by far the most of any manufacturer.

"The addition of HDBaseT in these new models allows us to continue to address the issue of providing HD quality over long distances at much more attractive price points,” said Keith Haas, Director of Sales. "Implementing new technologies like Dolby Atmos allows us to continue to provide products people have come to expect from the market leader. These additions along with THX Certified sound quality and unparalleled streaming service options, afford our customers access to the best the industry has to offer."

The new DHC-80.6 is a THX Ultra2 Plus Certified 11.2 channel network A/V preamp processor sporting 8 HDMI 2.0 inputs for 4K/60Hz support and 3 outputs. In addition to Zone2 HDMI and HDBaseT, the DHC-80.6 is equipped with 11.2 multichannel balanced XLR pre-puts (with front bi-amp capability), two-channel balanced XLR audio inputs as well as 11.2 multichannel pre-outs and audio-grade 18 mm-pitch RCA Pre-Outs (Front L / R).

Meanwhile, the DTR-70.6 is an 11.2 channel, THX Select2 Plus network A/V receiver that boasts 135 watts per channel of power.

The DTR-70.6 supports an abundant package of connectivity options including 8-in/3-out HDMI, the aforementioned HDBaseT port and Zone 2 HDMI, and 11.2 multichannel pre-outs. If preferred, the unit can be configured to assign four of the nine available channels to drive audio in Zone 2 and Zone 3 simultaneously.

The DTR-60.5 is a 9.2 channel, THX Select2 Plus network A/V receiver which is also rated at 135 watts per channel. Like the DTR-70.6 it comes with 8-in/3-out HDMI supporting HDBaseT and Zone2 HDMI.

The final addition to the line is the DTR-50.6; a THX Select2 Plus Dolby Atmos ready A/V network receiver capable of providing 130 watts per channel of power. It’s complete with 7-in, 2-out HDMI supports HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2 and HDBaseT connectivity.

The new Integra DTR-30.6 and DTR-40.6 are the first audio/video receivers designed to provide support for the latest HDMI for 4K/60Hz video, the latest HDCP2.2 copy protection standard and to provide sophisticated integration with advanced home automation systems.

UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (5/21/14) -- Integra, a brand whose products are specifically engineered for custom audio/video installers, has introduced two new home theater receivers, models DTR-30.6 and DTR-40.6. Both are designed to provide state-of-the-art home theater sound and video performance by combining the latest HDMI version supporting 4K/60 Hz and HDCP 2.2 copy protection, as well as excellent compatibility with advanced multi-room and home automation systems. The DTR-40.6 is also THX Select2 Plus certified to help ensure the finest audio quality possible and includes HDBaseT connectivity.

Both models provide seven-channels of power at 95 and 110 watts per channel, respectively. The DTR-30.6 has seven HDMI inputs and two outputs while the DTR-40.6 includes HDBaseT connectivity along with the 7 in/ 2 out HDMI configuration. HDBaseT is the only technology that enables long-reach wired connectivity up to 328 feet (100 meters) for uncompressed full HD multimedia content, through a single CAT5e/6 cable, including 3D and 2K/4K Ultra HD making it ideal for the custom integration specialists. The HDBaseT and HDMI output ports on the DTR-40.6 can be assigned for either main or second zone configuration.

"Implementing technologies like HDBaseT at more attractive price points allows us to continue to provide products people have come to expect from the market leader. With this addition along with support of the latest HDMI and HDCP specifications, unparalleled streaming service options, THX Certified sound quality and ongoing support upgrades, our customers get new value added on a regular basis" said Keith Haas, Director of Sales.

Networking features provide access to the widest selection of audio streaming content such as that from Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Tune In and many others. The DTR-30.6 and DTR-40.6 also have a phono input and provide extensive support for legacy digital and analog sources. These are few of the receivers to support gapless playback of most every type of high definition music files including WMA Lossless, FLAC, DSD, Double DSD, ALAC, Dolby True HD 24/96 and 24/192 formats from HD music download services, USB or via local area network (LAN). Additionally, the DTR-30.6 includes both built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to support wireless audio streaming from home network and mobile devices.

On the video side, both receivers provide full support for 4K Ultra HD video displays, using either the 4K pass-through feature or upscaling for conventional HD video sources via a Marvel QDEO processor. Both models also include ISF calibration capability, which allows ISF Certified calibration technicians to custom define both day and night settings for each individual video source component connected to the receivers. The incorporation of the ISF calibration function in theses receiver results in simpler system configurations, reduced set-up time, and end-user systems offering optimal video performance while retaining the ease-of-use of HDMI switching.

The Integra DTR-30.6 and DTR-40.6 include an array of very useful video features, including InstaPrevue, which allows users to monitor multiple program sources with this HDMI variant of picture-in-picture. There is also Mobile High-definition Link (MHL), which uses the front-panel HDMI port to deliver HD video and up to 7.1 channels of audio from compatible Android smart devices and other products.

Sound quality is a key factor in Integra's design process. The custom amplifier section consists of hand-selected parts, high current, low impedance power supply section, and employs three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry and Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT) -- a low negative-feedback topology for low distortion and high dynamic range. The DTR-40.6 includes three-stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry across all channels as well as the ability to drive difficult and demanding 4 ohm loads. Phase Matching Bass circuitry, introduced in the 2013 models, 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.

In addition to the 7.1 channel Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio both models incorporate Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz to provide alternate surround option for front height channels. Proprietary AccuEQ room calibration bypasses any filtering of the front L/R channels so the loudspeakers’ unique audio characteristics are preserved. The remaining channels are very quickly and easily optimized for balanced surround-sound performance.

Custom installers will appreciate the inclusion of Powered Zone 2 and Zone 2 preouts in both units, the addition of Zone 3 preout in the DTR-40.6, two IR inputs and one output for remote control integration, and three 12-volt triggers. A bi-directional RS-232 port and Ethernet jack are available for seamless control from home automation systems.

The Integra DTR-30.6 and DTR-40.6 will be available in May with suggested retail prices of $1,000 and $1,300 respectively.

Onkyo Corporation, an audio and visual equipment manufacture, and the Braille Mainichi (The Mainichi Newspapers) created the "Onkyo Braille Essay Contest" in 2003, and it has been held annually since then. Through this contest, we hope to build a bridge between Braille and sound for the visually disabled who are extremely sensitive to the warmth that connects all people. The 11th contest held this year invited entries from Japan for the Japanese Category as well as entries from 108 countries for the International Category: 21 countries and regions in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) under World Blind Union Asia Pacific (WBU-AP), 21 countries in West Asia, Central Asia, and Middle East under Asian Blind Union (ABU), 45 countries in Europe under European Blind Union (EBU), and 21 countries in North America and the Caribbean under World Blind Union North America and Caribbean (WBU-NAC). As an international essay contest, the event promotes cross-cultural communication and serves as a bridge across an increasingly complex global community. We hope that the lives and thoughts of the visually disabled both at home and overseas will reach readers' hearts and the harmony we create together will resonate throughout society.

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.

Nashville, TN. January 04, 2012: As part of its continued diversification into the music and audio lifestyle arena, Gibson Guitar Corp., the world’s premier musical instrument manufacturer, today announced a strategic partnership with Onkyo Corporation, a worldwide leader in consumer audio. With a reputation of excellence for high quality audio equipment and home theater systems, Onkyo offers Gibson’s newly-formed Pro Audio Division substantial technology resources. Gibson will provide Onkyo with its marketing resources and expertise. The result will be an ability to deliver a far superior audio experience to the consumer who has become more and more used to hearing only inferior compressed music through inexpensive ear bud headsets.

Through this venture, Gibson will acquire a majority of Onkyo USA (Onkyo’s exclusive distributor for North America and a distributor for Central and South America) and become the second largest shareholder in Onkyo Corporation. Gibson will make a strategic investment in the company, and Gibson Chairman and CEO Henry Juszkiewicz will be given a position on the Onkyo board of directors. Likewise, Onkyo will invest in Gibson, and CEO and President Munenori Otsuki will take a position on the company’s Board of Directors. Together, the two entities will form a Hong Kong-based joint venture focusing on design and development of unparalleled consumer audio products. Through this alliance, Onkyo USA becomes the latest addition to the Gibson Pro Audio division, which already includes KRK, Cerwin-Vega! and Stanton.

“Onkyo makes some of the world’s best audio equipment, and this partnership will give Gibson the ability to bring a deeper and more enhanced audio experience to music lovers around the world,” says Juszkiewicz. “While people may be listening to more music, they are listening to it primarily in a severely compressed format. The aural disparity between a real system and compressed sound is vast, and as a result, they are simply not hearing tremendously rich sounds. With Onkyo, our goal is to bring the same exceptional experience artists demand in the studio to a larger consumer base.”

“This partnership has significant positive implications for Onkyo as we are always seeking ways of creating new value,” says Otsuki. “Gibson is a leading global company with a massive fan base, best-in-class products and superior marketing skills. Coming together in this way opens the door for amazing opportunities for both companies and, more importantly, fans of Onkyo and Gibson.”

All agreements are subject to Japanese regulatory clearance, negotiation of definitive agreements and financing approvals of lenders.

INDIANAPOLIS (9/6/11) -- Integra, the leading brand of audio-video components specifically engineered for custom installation, will introduced its new top-of-the-line AV processor and AV receivers at the CEDIA Expo 2011, which opens here tomorrow. The company will also debut remote control apps for iPod/iPhone and Android wireless devices.

These three AV components all feature the new HQV-Vida video processors, DTS Neo:X dimensional surround processing, Dolby Volume processing, improved networking and streaming media capabilities, plus numerous other features not included in last year's models.

"With their improved audio, video and networking capabilities, these new high-end Integra models will be the must-have products for our custom installer dealer base," said Keith Haas, Director of Sales. "While 4k video displays are now few and far between, we see that changing over the next 12 months, especially in the high-end and commercial installs. We are also pleased with the ever-improving networking capabilities that actually make it possible to improve a product after the customer buys it. With added streaming services, wireless features, and ongoing support upgrades, our customers get new value added on a regular basis."

The new DHC-80.3 AV preamp controller, and the DTR-80.3 and DTR-70.3 high-end AV receivers are all 9.2-channel THX ULtra2 Plus Certified systems. All three use the new DTS Neo:X dimensional sound processor, which is the industry’s first 2.0/5.1/6.1/7.1-to- 9.1/11.1 conversion technology within a single algorithm, in addition to Audyssey DSX, and Dolby ProLogic IIz.. With eleven speaker- or line-outputs, these new models can accommodate a variety of different combinations of front, height, wide, and surround channels without the need to rewire speakers.

The other big upgrade is of the video processors. While all 2011 Integra receivers now employ the new Marvell Qdeo 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) upscaling video processor, these three high-end models replace last year's HQV ReonVX chipset with the new IDT HQV® Vida™ VHD1900. This provides additional high-performance video processing, including enhancement of low-resolution streaming video, and to facilitate ISFccc calibration capabilities.

The network connection provides Internet radio and streaming music services, with preformatted service packages for Spotify, Mediafly, Pandora®, SlackerTM, Napster, Rhapsody®, vTuner, SIRIUS XM Internet Radio®, and Last.fm.

The Integra DHC-80.3 AV preamp processor uses high-end balanced XLR outputs designed for optimal performance with a comparable high-end nine-channel power amplifier, like the Integra DTA-70.1. The DHC-80.3 AV processor and DTR-80.3 AV receiver both have high-current power supplies with premium toroidal transformers for ultimate low-noise performance. The DTR-70.3 uses a different three-transformer power supply configuration with separate supplies for each major circuitry division. The DTR-70.3 and DTR-80.3 have powerful, low-distortion A-WRAT amplifier stages with 135- and 145-Watts per channel respectively.

Integra has also announced the immediate free availability of wireless remote control Apps that will allow all 2011 Integra processors and receivers to be controlled using an iPod/iPhone or Android wireless device.

The Integra DHC-80.3 AV preamp processor and the DTR-80.3 and DTR-70.3 AV receivers are now shipping to Integra dealers with suggested retail prices of $2,600, $3,000 and $2,300 respectively.

Integra adds high-level ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) video calibration capabilities to AV receivers/controllers finally allowing individual video calibration for multiple source components.

DENVER (9/3/08) -- Integra, the first company to offer AV receivers specifically engineered for custom installers and systems integrators, will debut the worlds first such units to include Imaging Science Foundation's Certified Calibration Controls (ISFccc) at the CEDIA Expo opening here tomorrow. By adding this capability to two AV receivers and a preamplifier, Integra now makes it possible to achieve optimal image quality from all video source components connected using the receiver's built-in video switching. [see block diagram below]

ISF is the world leader in providing video image calibration training and services for high-end commercial and consumer video display systems. ISF-trained calibration technicians will now be able to use the new Integra DTR-8.9 and DTR-9.9 receivers, and DHC-9.9 preamp-processor to calibrate the video signals from several different source components in order to achieve optimal video display quality for all of them. The Integra ISFccc system also allows programming of day and night settings, plus a user-accessible custom setting for each source.

For consumers and custom installers alike, the simplest and most reliable way to connect different video sources – DVD player, HD player, Satellite TV, cable TV, etc. – is by using an AV receiver or preamplifier to select the desired source and direct the video signal over a single output to the TV or projector. However, until now the ability to fine-tune video calibration adjustments has been a function of the TV or video projector, meaning the display could be optimized for only one of the many sources being switched in the AV receiver. While there are complex workarounds involving multiple bypass connections and unwieldy remote control macro programming, these rarely survive the first visit of a teenage nephew.

"That's the beauty of what Integra has done," said Joel Silver, the president and founder of ISF. "They have made everything simple by putting the calibration controls in the receiver and providing separate calibration memory for each input. We have worked with Integra for the past year to make sure all the coarse-grain and fine-grain calibration adjustments correspond to ISF protocols. Now, ISF-trained technicians can achieve a perfect match for all the sources and also provide the end user with simple, intuitive control over sources and switching."

"Since most of our dealers are custom installers and most have ISF certified calibration technicians on their teams, they will now enjoy capabilities simply unavailable to dealers using competing brands of receivers and processors," said Keith Haas, Integra's director of sales. "We are very excited by this opportunity to provide the end user with a state-of-the-art video presentation while maintaining the straightforward ease-of-operation customers have come to expect of Integra equipment."

This ISF calibration capability is now available on the new Integra DHC-9.9 AV preamp controller, and DTR-8.9 and DTR-9.9 AV receivers, which will be shipping to dealers in September. Access to this calibration will be restricted to ISF trained calibration technicians who will perform these services for a fee as independent contractors.

DENVER (9/3/08) -- Integra, the first company to build audio-video receivers designed specifically for custom installers, has introduced two new receivers engineered to meet demanding technical requirements of THX's new Ultra2 Plus and Select2 Plus certification standards. Both have 1080p video upscaling and advanced two-zone capabilities.

The Integra DTR-7.9 is THX Ultra2 Plus certified for large-room applications with a powerful 130 watts-per-channel amplifier, five HDMI inputs, and upscaling for component video inputs. The Integra DTR-6.9 is THX Select2 Plus certified with 100 watts per channel and four HDMI inputs. Both include the new THX Loudness Plus processing which improves the listener's aural experience at moderate and low volume levels.

These receivers use Audyssey's highly regarded MultEQ room correction technology to automatically set optimal speaker levels and time delay for any given room. They also add Audyssey's new Dynamic EQ circuitry, which corrects the surround channel equalization and level relative to volume levels.

As the audio and video control centers for advanced home theater installations, these receivers are fully compatible with HDMI v. 1.3a, including 1080p and Deep Color™ 36-bit video signals. They include Faroudja DCDi Cinema HDMI upscaling to 1080p, and the DTR-7.9 also includes component video upscaling to 1080i. Both receivers feature onboard decoding for the Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD and DTS Master Audio lossless audio formats specified for Blu-Ray disc formats.

Like all Integra products, the DTR-7.9 and DTR-6.9 include comprehensive packages of features specifically tailored to the needs of custom installers, including Ethernet ports for integration with Network-based control systems such as E-Control™ and AMX Device Discovery™. These two-zone receivers also include bi-directional RS-232, RIHD (Remote Interactive over HDMI) system control integration over HDMI, programmable 12-volt triggers, dual IR inputs, and three unique assignable IR code sets. The back channels can be reconfigured for powered Zone 2 or front-channel bi-amping for large speakers. Because these receivers will frequently be set up by professional installers, the customized dealer settings can be independently stored for easy recall.

The Integra DTR-7.9 and DTR-6.9 are both now available with manufacturer's suggested retail prices of $1,300 and $1,000 respectively.

The DTR-7.9 is among the first receivers available to carry THX's new Ultra2 Plus™ Certification, which includes the new THX Loudness Plus™ volume control technology. This new processing algorithm compensates for the tonal and spatial shifts that occur when the volume level is reduced below the reference levels that the original soundtrack was mastered for. For instance, by slightly increasing the relative volume of the ambient sound at lower volumes, the impact of movies, music and games is much closer to what the sound engineer originally intended.

The DTR-7.9 features five HDMI inputs, and is fully compatible with HDMI v. 1.3a, including 1080p and Deep Color™ 36-bit video signals. It features onboard decoding for Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio, and DTS-HD High Resolution making it fully capable of exploiting the high definition audio as well as video potential of the Blu-Ray disc formats, and all using a single HDMI cable connection. All HDMI inputs are upscaled to 1080p resolution using Faroudja's DCDi Cinema technology. Additionally, all inputs are also upscaled to 1080i for output via the unit's component video output to accommodate displays lacking HDMI inputs.

The Integra DTR-7.9 includes a comprehensive package of features specifically tailored to the needs of custom installers, including an Ethernet port for integration with Network-based control systems such as AMX Device Discovery and Crestron E-Control. It also includes bi-directional RS-232, RIHD (Remote Interactive over HDMI) system control integration over HDMI, three programmable 12-volt triggers, dual IR inputs, and three unique assignable IR code sets. Lockable customized dealer settings can be independently stored for easy recall, making it simple for installers to maintain complex installations.

For simplified setup, the DTR-7.9 includes Audyssey's acclaimed MultEQ room acoustics correction, as well as the Audyssey's Dynamic EQ algorithm, which refines the receiver's frequency response and surround levels moment-by-moment to compensate for deteriorations in the listening experience at different volume levels. These functions work together automatically to tailor the receiver's output to correct for room acoustics, listening position, and playback-level distortions, delivering an overall experience that is a much closer match to what the audio production engineers originally intended

Designed to offer maximum flexibility and integration options for multi-room audio distribution and control, the DTR-7.9 is capable of processing two audio sources simultaneously for both the main and second zones, and includes a dedicated high definition capable Zone 2 component video output for. It features a selectable fixed/variable line level Zone 2 output to feed a dedicated zone receiver or amplifier. It also includes Integra's Powered Zone 2 feature, which employs two of the receiver's internal amplifier channels to power speakers in a second room while simultaneously providing a full 5.1 channel home theater system in the main room; when Zone 2 is turned off, the main zone reverts to 7.1-channel output. For the second zone there are independent controls for bass, treble, balance, maximum volume, and power-on volume. There is even a separate Zone 2 subwoofer output for rooms employing subwoofer/satellite speaker systems.

The Integra DTR-7.9 includes a high quality AM/FM radio tuner and is also "SAT Ready" with connections for both XM and Sirius satellite radio, which can be simultaneously active. It includes 40 presets for AM, FM, XM, or Sirius stations. The DTR-7.9 is now available from Integra dealers with a suggested retail price of $1,300.

DENVER (9/3/08) -- Integra has introduced two new top-of-the-line THX Ultra2 Plus certified A/V receivers that are the first such products to incorporate ISFccc (Imaging Science Foundation Certified Calibration Controls) capability, giving installers a simpler and more effective way to optimize individual video source calibration for high-end home theater installations. The DTR-9.9 and DTR-8.9 are both three-zone capable, and include HQV Reon-VX video processing, new THX Loudness Plus processing, Audyssey's new Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume technologies, HD Radio, and a comprehensive set of custom installation capabilities and features designed specifically for custom installers and systems integration professionals. The Certified for Windows Vista DTR-9.9 also incorporates an advanced suite of networked and streaming digital audio capabilities.

The DTR-9.9 and DTR-8.9 are the first A/V receivers available that include ISFccc calibration capability, which allows ISF Certified calibration technicians to custom define both day and night settings for each individual video source component connected to the receivers. Additionally, each input includes a third Custom calibration memory that can be accessed by consumers to adjust video output to their specific tastes. Previously, video calibration was usually limited to one source, or required complex cabling and intricate remote control macro programming to achieve a reasonably user friendly system. The incorporation of these calibration functions in the receiver results in simpler system configurations, reduced set-up time, and end-user systems offering optimal video performance while retaining the ease-of-use of HDMI switching.

The DTR-9.9 and DTR-8.9 each include Silicon Image HQV Reon-VX video upconversion processing, accommodating any source video signal with transcoding and upscaling to resolutions as high as 1080p via HDMI (1080i via component-video). Its pixel-by-pixel deinterlacing and scaling processing and sophisticated noise-reduction algorithms yield sharp, artifact-free images from legacy SD signals as well as HD sources.

With THX Ultra2 Plus certification the DTR-9.9 and DTR-8.9 are designed to provide outstanding performance with both music and movies in even the largest of theater spaces. The new THX Loudness Plus feature improves how you experience movies at lower volume levels. Because ambient sounds and bass can be lost or perceived differently when the volume is lowered, THX Loudness Plus automatically adjusts the front-to-back speaker level and frequency balance to ensure that you experience all of rich details of movies when listening below reference level.

Both receivers include Audyssey's acclaimed MultEQ XT room acoustics correction, the most powerful built-in solution available for countering room distortion in dedicated home theaters.

DENVER (9/3/08) -- Integra, the leading manufacturer of home theater components designed specifically for the custom installer, has introduced the Integra DHC-9.9, the worlds first AV preamplifier-processor to include Imaging Science Foundation's Certified Calibration Controls (ISFccc) which facilitate individual image quality calibration of video source components while simplifying system configurations.

The Integra DHC-9.9 is a three-zone THX Ultra2 Plus certified AV preamplifier-processor. It replaces the company's highly successful DTC-9.8, which was the first pre-pro to include HDMI 1.3a repeaters and Silicon Optix' premium HQV Reon-VX circuitry for upscaling and video processing. The new model adds the powerful new audio processing capabilities of THX Loudness Plus and Audyssey Dynamic EQ which both improve the home theater experience when listening at moderate sound levels. It also adds Audyssey's Dynamic Volume, which maintains consistent overall volume levels regardless of changes in the source. For broadcast fans, the DHC-9.9, has an HD Radio tuner, is Sirius and XM Satellite radio ready, and offers XMHD Surround and THX Neural Surround.

An ISF Certified calibration technician with unrestricted access to the DHC-9.9's ISFccc menus can achieve optimal image quality for each of the video inputs. Previously, video calibration was usually limited to one source, or required complex cabling and intricate remote control macro programming to achieve a reasonably user friendly system. The use of these calibration functions, especially with HDMI, will result in simpler system configurations, reduced set-up time, and end-user systems offering optimal video performance while retaining the ease-of-use of HDMI switching. Up to three calibration settings -- day, night, or custom -- can be stored for each source.

The heart of the video circuitry is Silicon Optix' premium HQV Reon-VX processing for studio-quality upscaling of all sources to 1080p over HDMI, and also provides analog component video upscaling to 1080i. The DHC-9.9 has four HDMI, three component video, and six S-Video/composite inputs. There are two HDMI outputs to facilitate applications such as a second monitor in the same room with a projector.

With its THX Ultra2 Plus certification the DHC-9.9 is designed for use with powerful external amplifiers in large rooms, and provides 7.1-channel professional-grade balanced XLR outputs for connection to compatible multichannel amplifiers. The new THX Loudness Plus feature improves the experience of movies at lower volume levels. Because ambient sounds and bass can be lost or perceived differently when the volume is lowered, THX Loudness Plus automatically adjusts the front-to-back speaker level and frequency balance to ensure that you experience all of the rich details of movies when listening below reference level.

Like its predecessor, DHC-9.9 includes Audyssey's acclaimed MultEQ XT room acoustics correction, the most powerful built-in solution available for countering room distortion in dedicated home theaters. The system is Audyssey MultEQ Pro compatible, allowing certified installers to take this process to even higher levels of refinement. New for the DHC-9.9 is Audyssey Dynamic EQ, which provides real-time adjustment of surround levels and equalization when listening at moderate sound levels. Also new is Audyssey's Dynamic Volume, which detects and corrects for undesired dramatic changes in volume level during program changes and commercials, maintaining a consistent output level.

The DHC-9.9 has three advanced TI Aureus™ 32-bit DSP chips to provide onboard decoding for every major format in use today, including the latest high definition and lossless audio formats specified for the Blu-Ray disc formats. The unit features an oversized Toroidal transformer for the main power supply as well as separate transformers for the audio and video circuitry. Each channel also employs premium quality Burr Brown audio DAC's and Integra's VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) for dynamic, low-distortion reproduction at all output levels. The HDMI and AV inputs are assignable, as are three optical/coaxial digital inputs, two-channel balanced XLR inputs, phono and line-level analog inputs, and mutichannel inputs and pre-outs.

The DHC-9.9 boasts exceptional multizone capabilities, including fixed and variable line level outs with subwoofer for two additional zones. Zone 2 also includes both composite and HD-quality component video outputs, as well as independent tone controls. Zone 2 and Zone 3 both include balance controls as well as maximum and power-on volume settings.

The Integra DHC-9.9 includes a comprehensive package of features specifically tailored to the needs of custom installers, including an Ethernet port for integration with network-based control systems. It also includes bi-directional RS-232, RIHD (Remote Interactive over HDMI) system control integration over HDMI, three programmable 12-volt triggers, dual IR inputs, and three unique assignable IR code sets. Lockable customized dealer settings can be independently stored for easy recall, making it simple for installers to maintain complex installations.

"The Build To Order system allows dealers and consumers to purchase only what is needed for the particular application, while at the same time making the process as simple as ordering from an a la carte dinner menu at a fine restaurant.”

Upon reaching the Build To Order page, the customer is asked for their email address and zip code. Once they have given this information, they are taken to a configuration page that lets them select the cards and options they want included on their custom unit. With each new selection, a rear panel photo is updated in real time to reflect additions, providing a visual indicator of the build configuration. When satisfied, the user simply clicks the submit button.

When a project is submitted on the site, a unique custom build number is issued for the user's project, and retained on file for reference by dealers. A confirmation email is sent to the consumer with this build number and a list of local dealers who can implement the purchase. In order to get pricing information and possibly purchase a unit, the consumer provides the build number to a dealer. The dealer can use that number to determine the price and place the order for that exact configuration.

Integra has introduced the DTA-9.4 seven-channel home theater amplifier, the company’s first digital and first multichannel home theater power amplifier. The Integra DTA-9.4 “Pure Digital” amplifier provides very high sound quality in part through exclusive digital technology and also by maintaining exceptional power linearity across the full impedance range of modern loudspeakers. It is capable of delivering 120 Watts into seven channels at 8 Ohms, and perfectly doubling that power to 240 Watts per channel into 4 Ohms. Designed specifically for multichannel home theater, the DTA-9.4's unique digital design gives it an operating efficiency of 90%, more than twice that of conventional class AB amplifiers, while at the same time having a smaller “footprint.” The high output current, 400 kHz switching power supply features 156,000 microfarads of capacitance for nearly inexhaustible current reserves, and complete compatibility with low impedance 4-Ohm speaker loads.The DTA-9.4 marks the first implementation of Integra's Vector Linear PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology, which combines an advanced digital switching topology with sophisticated shaping circuitry for remarkably detailed and efficient audio amplification. This shaping is performed using Vector Linear technology derived from the company’s high end D/A converters. This “remasters” the incoming analog signal, significantly reducing any potential pulse noise in the signal and improving overall accuracy.Most digital amplifier power supplies are plagued by noise caused by the transient capacitance inherent in switched MOSFET devices. But thanks to an ingenious circuit that monitors this characteristic, the DTA-9.4’s “Zero Switching Power Supply” only switches when this value is zero, resulting in a highly accurate power supply output.For use with compatible equipment, such as the Integra DTC-9.4 preamplifier/processor, the amplifier features gold plated balanced XLR inputs for improved signal transfer. Of course there are also extremely high quality gold-plated unbalanced terminals. Heavy-duty gold plated speaker terminals allow for the use of banana plugs, or spade lugs.Each channel of the DTA-9.4 features a completely independent circuit topology for superior reproduction fidelity. The amplifier benefits from an ultra low internal impedance design, thanks to the extensive use of copper bus bar and heavy gauge wiring, to provide superior response to transients and variations in the speaker load. The high efficiency of the PWM design eliminates the need for a noisy cooling fan.For integration with home theater systems, there is a 12-volt trigger input terminal for remote turn-on and “DimmerLink” to the DTC-9.4. The amplifier also includes a heavy-duty, audiophile-grade oxygen free copper detachable power cord.The Integra DTA-9.4 will be available in May at a suggested retail price of $3,000.

The inclusion of 50 MHz HDTV-capable component video switching prevents the signal degradation that can occur with low-bandwidth systems, and a sophisticated 3-line digital comb filter is used in the conversion of composite to S-Video for superior signal quality. The DTC-9.4 features a wide array of audio and video connections to accommodate all of the gear in a high-end home theater system. There are two composite video inputs and one output, six A/V inputs with composite and S-video connections, and three audio-only inputs. The three coaxial and five optical digital inputs, including one on the front panel, are fully assignable, and there are even two optical digital outputs. For connection to power amplifiers, there are 8 unbalanced coaxial pre-outs, and each channel also has a balanced XLR output for amplifiers so equipped, such as Integra's seven-channel DTA-9.4 "Pure Digital" amplifier.There is also an audio/video output for a second Zone, which provides the ability to listen to the same or different source material in another room, using an additional power amplifier. An On-Screen display provides control of all settings as well as access to Net-Tune digital media playlists. The included CHAD remote control is a fully customizable graphical touchscreen learning remote which allows consumers to replace all of the remotes for their A/V equipment with a single unit.

These include Net-Tune Central, which enables a standard PC to function as a Net-Tune server; XiVA Producer, which allows a PC to be used to manage a Net-Tune NAS-2.3 music server; and XiVA Utilities, which provides custom installers a suite of tools for managing a Net-Tune server. Net-Tune Central software allows existing Windows-based PCs to function as ‘servers’ for Net-Tune audio systems without interfering with the computers’ other operations. The software searches and catalogs all the digital music files on the PC into a central database, and handles communication, requests, and streams to clients via Ethernet. Consumers can easily generate custom playlists, delete entries form the database, and edit file ‘tag’ information such as artist, track, album, or genre, without affecting the original files in any way. The software operates seamlessly in the Windows background on one or more PCs, allowing access to databases on multiple computers within the home.XiVA Producer provides the ability to browse, edit, and control Integra’s NAS-2.3 Net-Tune server with a conventional PC. The software contains full browsing and editing facilities for the server database, including playlist, album, track, genre and artist information. Audio files can be easily transferred from PC to server, storing all of the audio files in a central location, the NAS-2.3.XiVA Utilities software provides dealers and installation professionals with a suite of tools to clone, back up, and restore Net-Tune servers using a PC. With XiVA Utilities, dealers/installers can provide end-users with invaluable setup and restoration services.Net-Tune Central and XiVA Producer are available as a free download for registered owners of Integra Net-Tune products. XiVA Utilities is only available to authorized Integra dealers and installers. Integra designs and manufactures premium Home Theater receivers, processors and DVD players that are specifically designed to meet the needs of custom audio/video systems installers. Systems integration and convergence technology protocols include RS-232, A–BUS, IR and on-board Ethernet for network connectivity and TCP/IP control.


Distributed audio systems have been one of the major forces driving the growth of the custom installation industry over the past decade, but a lack of standardization, and the difficulties of integrating audio and control signals throughout a whole home has made it complicated, and difficult for busy installers to stay abreast of new developments. Now Integra has completely redefined the way custom installers centralize and distribute audio in consumer's homes with their revolutionary Net-Tune system. Rather than designing yet another complicated system of wiring and system control, Integra has created a system that is completely compliant with Ethernet, the universal standard for home PC networks. Using this all-digital infrastructure, Net-Tune provides improved audio quality, simplified wiring and system setup, seamless integration with home PC networks to deliver internet radio, and a straightforward dedicated music server for a centralized music library."The Net-Tune platform continues Integra's commitment to provide installers with solutions using the latest in control and convergence technologies," states Integra Product Manager Eric Harper. "With the growing popularity of IP-based control systems, Integra's industry-first home theater receivers with native TCP/IP control are perfectly suited for these applications."Ethernet setup and protocols are already familiar to many installers, so Net-Tune requires very little new training and equipment to implement and configure. Net-Tune can be used with any Ethernet-compliant wired or wireless transfer medium, including Cat-5 cable, PC wireless systems, phone lines, and even power lines. This means that every home that installers work on is already structurally prepared to use Net-Tune. All audio and control signals in Net-Tune are transferred entirely in the digital domain, eliminating the signal degradation that inevitably occurs in conventional systems as remote locations get further from the central source, or 'server.' Signals at remote zones are received and decoded by inexpensive and easy-to-use clients, which are available in several forms. The simplest client is the NAC-2.3, an executive mini-system type unit that can be used to drive a pair of speakers, or serve as a source to a pre-existing stereo or home theater system. Integra also offers built-in client functionality in two of its acclaimed home theater receivers, the DTR-7.3 and DTR-8.3. Consumers can run as many as a dozen clients simultaneously, and completely independently, over a single network. The source for a Net-Tune based system is the NAS-2.3, a high capacity hard-drive based dedicated audio server. The NAS-2.3 features an 80 Gigabyte capacity for over 1400 CDs worth of audio stored in the popular MP3 format. The server can store music at multiple MP3 bit rates, or as uncompressed PCM files for exact reproduction of compact discs. Consumers merely load a CD into the built-in tray, and select the track(s) that they want stored, and in what format. When a new CD is copied, the server automatically accesses Gracenote's online CD database, either via computer network or the unit's internal modem, to retrieve and store artist, album, track, genre, and even cover art information for nearly any CD. The NAS-2.3 has a suggested retail price of $2,000. The NAC-2.3 has a suggested retail price of $500. The DTR-7.3 and DTR-8.3 have suggested retail prices of $1,300 and $2,200 respectively. All these Net-Tune system components are all currently available.
