    Default New Integra Dtr-10.5

    Integra Debuts Build-To-Order DTR-10.5
    Integra’s DTR-10.5 THX Ultra2 receiver can be purchased many optional modules including HDMI digital video interface, iLink digital connections, Net-Tune Ethernet audio and more.

    Integra has taken a lesson from ‘build-to-order’ computer manufacturers with its new top-of-the-line DTR-10.5 THX Ultra2, 7.1-channel, 150 watt home theater receiver. This receiver is unique in its use of removable card-based circuit modules to provide a wide range of features, performance, and connectivity options.
    The DTR-10.5 and the first seven optional modules will be available in April. As new technologies appear on the market, Integra will develop new modules, with the first of these to debut in the fall of 2004.
    Customers will work with their Integra dealer and an on-line configuration wizard to customize their own personal receiver. The dealer then places the order, and Integra will assemble and test the unit to be sent to the dealer.

    “For the enthusiast or custom installer, this receiver gives them a wide range of options for performance and connectivity,” said Eric Harper, Integra and Custom Installation Product Manager. “It allows them to get the features they want and leave out those they will never use. Based on the initial reactions of our focus groups, this is an idea whose time has come.”

    All Integra DTR-10.5s include four modules -- digital audio, analog audio, composite and S-video, and an AM/FM tuner -- as standard equipment. These too could be easily replaced at later dates with future technology.

    Two of the initial optional modules incorporate important new technologies. The first of these is an iLink (IEEE-1394) module that provides direct digital audio inputs from compatible SACD and DVD-Audio players such as the Integra DPS-10.5. This allows the user to bypass the conventional analog multichannel inputs without violating copy-protection controls. It also facilitates a more sophisticated bass management system for all sources. The second option is for an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) module that is used for digital connections to HDMI and DVI (Digital Video Interface) components. The module has two HDMI inputs and one output.

    The third option is Integra’s Net-Tune™ Ethernet client receiver module for accessing digital music files over a local PC network (TCP/IP). Net-Tune plays MP3, WMA, and PCM files stored on a PC or Integra NAS-2.3 music server. It also has Internet Radio capability for networks with broadband Internet access. Up to 12 Net-Tune client receivers can independently access the same server simultaneously.

    The fourth option is for an extra component video input/output pair with a choice of either RCA or BNC connectors. The fifth option provides a choice between two additional audio input modules. One has dual 7.1 analog inputs and the other has one 7.1 analog and one professional AES/EBU digital input.

    The Integra DTR-10.5’s fixed digital audio module has six optical and six coaxial digital inputs and two each outputs. It uses top grade 192 kHz/24-bit Wolfson DACs (digital/analog converters) on all channels for no-compromise sound quality. The module also includes processing for THX Surround EX, Dolby Digital EX and Dolby Pro Logic IIx, and DTS, DTS-ES, DTS Neo:6, and DTS 96/24. Other digital audio features include Dolby Headphone and Dolby Virtual Speaker that create surround sound effects using headphones or two speakers.

    The fixed analog audio module has nine stereo inputs, a phono input, and five outputs. The inputs are all assignable, and the outputs can be configured for recorders and various multizone options.

    The fixed video module has three high definition component video inputs, as well as six composite and S-video inputs and four assignable outputs. All inputs are upconverted to component video to avoid the need for redundant cables when using older video source devices. Additionally all video inputs including 480i component video are upconverted to 480p for HDMI.

    The initial radio module includes a high quality AM and FM tuner with discrete tuning and presets station recall supported for multiple zones via IR and RS-232 interfaces.

    The Integra DTR-10.5’s base platform includes seven powerful amplifier sections that each deliver 150 watts into 8 ohms. Each channel includes A and B sets of heavy-duty binding posts for flexible speaker configuration, and to facilitate bi-wiring. Additionally, for 5.1-channel use, the main front and back surround channels can be bridged to deliver over 300 Watts to the front main speakers. For custom installers it has three-zone multiroom capability, bidirectional RS-232, plus extensive remote control interface and remote trigger options. Other features include chassis-mounted front-panel AV connections and rear-panel multichannel preamp outputs with two subwoofer outs. An elegant aluminum faced remote control with a scroll wheel and LCD display provides full control over the receiver and can be set up to control other AV components as well.

    The Integra DTR-10.5 will be available in April, with a suggested retail price of $3,500. The prices of the optional modules are to be announced.

    That sounds cool, but optional modules, module format and upgrade ability is certainly nothing that Onkyo has invented.

    I guess I need to read the thing again... I never seen where Onkyo claimed to be the inventor of the design?

    It was a statement based on the fact that they place emphasis on the configuration.
