Integra has introduced two mid-priced audio-video receivers designed to provide state-of-the-art home theater performance plus sophisticated integration with home automation systems. The new Integra DTR-30.1 and DTR-20.1 are, respectively, 7.2- and 5.2-channel, two-zone AV receivers designed for modern high-definition audio and video systems. In addition, the DTR-30.1 is the first Integra A/V receiver that incorporates the new Dolby ProLogic IIz which lets installers offer their clients engaging sonic ambience in three dimensions, not just two.
Both receivers use the latest HDMI 1.3a connection technologies with full support for 1080p video, Deep Color, x.v. Color, and high definition sound via Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The Integra DTR-30.1 has six HDMI inputs, including a front-panel input, while the DTR-20.1 has four HDMI inputs. The DTR-30.1 also features Faroudja DCDi Edge• based upscaling of all video sources to 1080i via the HDMI output. These receivers each deliver 90 Watts per channel of amplification into 8 Ohms, and include processing for every major digital audio format in use today, as well as a full suite of audio technologies from Audyssey.
"These new Integra receivers represent a great value for systems integrators and end users," said Keith Haas, Integra's Director of Sales. "They offer great sound and video performance at a reasonable price, and they offer outstanding second zone capabilities and home automation integration. Plus, as the first Dolby PLIIz-enabled products designed for custom installation, they give dealers a big step forward in the capabilities they offer their clients."
Each of the receivers feature Audyssey 2EQ automatic calibration system, which corrects each channel's output in both frequency and time domains based on measurements at three unique listening positions. Additional features include Audyssey Dynamic Volume technology, which optimizes the dynamic range of listening material at any listening level, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ, which corrects problems associated with reduced sound quality at low listening levels.
