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 audio streaming content such as Spotify, Pandora, Rhapsody, SiriusXM Internet Radio and Tune In. The DTR-30.5 also provides support for legacy digital and analog sources, including a phono input for connecting a turntable.

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 Marvel QDEO processor to upscale lower resolution video to 4K.

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 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 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 receiver in now available with a suggested retail price of $1,000.
