Sometimes custom installers are the only ones who get access to the potentially really cool products. This seems to be the case with the new featured loaded DTR-5.9 A/V receiver from Integra, priced at around $800.
The new model, according to Integra, “features the same HDMI 1.3a repeaters and high resolution audio processing as the best-selling DTR-5.8 that it replaces, and adds two additional HDMI inputs for a total of four, 1080i upscaling of standard definition sources over HDMI, and Audyssey’s new Dynamic EQ loudness compensation technology.”
Other features of the DTR-5.9 include internal decoding for most current surround sound formats, a seven channel amplifier section rated at 90 watts per channel, Sirius Satellite Radio ready and 40 radio presets. It is available now.
