    Default Integra DTR 7.1 receiver.. any interest??

    I am considering selling this fine receiver, This ain't no Circuit city special :)

    I bought this about a year ago, then the list was $1300.00
    THX cert, dd, dts, dts es, ex, 100x6 external amp for 7.1 needed.. I have the box, and packing and manual.. This was sold to me by a local hi-fi shop.. it was a B stock not refurbished.. I was told it was for a blemish or something, They don't know exactly when they get them, works great and looks great.. never did find any marks on it.. has the learning remote.. with small lcd screen on top..

    I would really like to get $675.00 or best offer.. what i consider the best offer, not the current offer.. so i will shoot down offers as they come until i get what i want.. or it doesnt sell, good enough??

    Thanks for looking

    Clearly, this is no home theater centerpiece for the mild-mannered

    Whether you are building your first home theater or upgrading your existing system, you need a good, solid foundation. You also need a receiver that's not going to be obsolete in six months. And, preferably, one that offers a mix of high-end construction, full-bandwidth power, versatile digital processing, comprehensive connectivity and an attractive price.

    Well, you found it. In addition to built-in Dolby Digital, Pro Logic, DTS and DTS-ES Matrix decoding, this masterpiece of engineering decodes the latest surround-sound sensation - THX Surround EX-encoded DVD's - and provides 6.1 channels of independent amplification, so you can immediately enjoy the benefits of THX Surround EX (greater 3-D effects and sound location) without having to buy and hook-up an external amplifier.

    Another very important advantage - THX-Select certification - which means when other A/V receivers start to feel the strain, the DTR-7.1 kicks into higher gear to match the pace of the action - because it's designed and officially certified to be driven hard.
    The DTR-7.1 also introduces a slew of other features never before available in this price range, most notably extensive systems-integration capabilities for custom installation setups. For example, it has a powered Zone 2 audio output, which means, unlike most multiroom-capable receivers, you don't need an external amplifier to enjoy a stereo audio source (radio, CD, MD, LP, or cassette) in the main room, while at the same time your partner listens to a different stereo source in another room.

    Other custom installation features include line-level outputs for a second zone amplifier to power whole-house systems, an RS-232 terminal that allows you to use touchscreen controllers from other manufacturers, an infrared-sensor input on the back panel so you can control the DTR-7.1 from another room or if it's inside a cabinet (with optional accessories), and two assignable and configurable 12-volt triggers to activate your power amps, drop the screen, close the drapes, dim the lights - you name it.

    Well so you don't feel lonely... It's nice looking. Your price/ obo approach is fine by me.

    Were I interested, I would have no qualms about doing a deal with you. Good luck...

    Your description doesn't mention it, but looking at the newer version Integra receivers (DTR 8.3), there is an intriguing feature called Net-Tune™. Does your receiver support Net-Tune™?

    Default You're not boycotted (that I know of)

    Tour said it right!

    If I was in the market for a receiver like this I would probably be all of it. I mostly by roughs and look for the diamonds inside.

    My question is WHY would you want to sell such a nice cutting edge AVR at such a low price? I'd hang onto that bad boy if I were you.

    I was thinking the pioneer elite was better for my setup, vsx45tx... and was told that was the reason for my 70's being bright?? So i thought i might get a different receiver..

    Not real good reasons i suppose,

    Faster,

    I was also once VICTIM of RTi70's brightness. To get rid of the brightness I had to add a separate amp and am using my receiver as Preprocessor. I would suggest you to try a separate amp with your receiver. You can start with a 2-channel amp for you mains and then can add amps for your surrounds. You should be able to get a good used 2-Chanel amp for around $200 on ebay.

    Agreed with izafar, also trying some different interconns may make some subtle to obvious changes in the direction you want to go with the sound.

    Thanks, I changed from junk wire to monster 14-4 bi-wire and that actually calmed down some of the brightness, My wife even noticed.. I also did upgrade all my interconnects to AR's.. however i am sure better ones are out there.. Its not bright on movies thank goodness, and cd's might be caused by my cheapo pioneer dvd player.. really i should get a better cd and dvd player. was still looking at pioneer elite dvd's and cd players.. and the brightness of course is only at pretty high volumes.. i just turn the treble control down and it gets better

    So you are using your DVD Player for 2CH music. Are you using the DAC in your DVD Player or your receiver? In my case I have always found the DAC in my receiver to be brighter than the DACS in DVD players that I have tried so far. So if you are using the receivers DAC, get a good analog interconnect and try the DVD players DAC.

    how do you use the dac in the dvd instead of the receiver?? analog interconnect?? I have all 3 hooked up, optical out, coax digital out and analog .. i never use the analog though.. figured the digital coax was better.....

    faster,
    if you use the digital out (coax or optical), then you will use the receiver's dac. Using the analog output, will utilise the player's dac.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    Good move, Faster. That's mint AVR.

    You might even try the M1.4 bi-wire - very laid back but detailed highs - not the least bit sharp and the Lowe's stuff I was using before had more brightness in comparison.

    What kind of DACs are in the Integra?

    You can only use the DACs in the DVD player if it has analog outputs. I use this feature on the DVD-2900 for DVD-A and SACD, but I could also use it for good old 2 channel stereo, too.

    The 2900 and the 3803 employ the same DACs, so the sonic signature is similar in my case, regardless. It's just that SACD and DVD-A require analog outputs.

    Fatser,

    If you have hooked both analog and Digital cables between the receiver and DVD player, then you need to configure you Receiver to use one of these. I think your receiver would be configured to use Dig Coax for DVD input. Simply go to the input setting for CD and select analog. Also connect the analog cable from DVD player to CD analog in on the back of the receiver.

    With the above configuration you would be able to do A/B testing when playing a CD in your DVD player by just switching the inputs on your DVD player. I think your integra has an inteli volume feature that set the gain for each input. Just set it to 0db for both DVD and CD inputs.

    Lets us know what you discover with this test.

    Yes my receiver has a input button as well as on the osd to flip between the inputs, analog, coax1, optical1 so on, I have tried both and the analog does cut it down a slight bit.. and also i have the analogs plugged into the cd, and i use coax for dvd playback.. Thanks guys.


    Spec,

    let me look and see what the dacs in this are

    I called Integra and it was like a top secret question about the dacs, Customer service said Burr brown, and the website states
    DACs 96kHz/24-bit x 8

    so let me know what ya think??

    I just seen this today, sweet.. only the $3000.00 price tag is alittle steep..
