Integra Debuts First AV Receiver with Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth

The Integra DTR-30.5's new custom integration features include built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, 4K Ultra HD Pass-Through & Upscaling, Plays HD Music Files, plus Phase-Matching Bass technology for clear sound.

UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (5/16/13) -- Integra, a brand whose products are specifically engineered for custom audio/video installers, has introduced a mid-level home theater receiver with key new home integration and performance features for 2013. The Integra DTR-30.5 is the company's first receiver with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth interfaces for modern media connectivity. It is also Integra's first with 4K pass-through and up-scaling for the new large Ultra HD high definition video displays, and it includes new Phase-Matching Bass technology for exceptional sound clarity.

With so many different music source options available today, 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 the widest selection of audio streaming content such as Spotify, Pandora, Rhapsody, SiriusXM Internet Radio and Tune In. In addition to all this new connectivity, the DTR-30.5 also provides extensive support for legacy digital and analog sources, including a phono input for connecting a turntable.

Increasingly, custom installers are equipping premium home theaters with the new 4K Ultra HD video displays, which are the pixel equivalent of four current 1080p HD screens. 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 remarkable Marvel QDEO processor to convert, or "upscale," lower resolution video to a full 4K presentation via HDMI.

Sound quality has always been a key factor in Integra's design process. 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 result is deep, well-defined bass that won't overwhelm vocals or strings.

With plenty of audio power on tap to drive each of seven loudspeakers in a home theater surround system, 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 an array of modern and very useful features. These include 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 receivers begin shipping to dealers this month with a suggested retail price of $1,000.

Integra designs and manufactures premium Home Theater receivers, processors, amplifiers, and blu-ray and DVD players that are specifically designed to meet the needs of custom audio/video systems installers. Systems integration and convergence technology protocols include RS-232, IR and on-board Ethernet for network connectivity and TCP/IP control. Integra has access to vast technical resources, and bears a proud heritage of 60 years of audio engineering excellence.

Re: Integra Debuts First AV Receiver with Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth

I kind of wish Audio-video receiver manufacturers would start to focus more on Sound Quality, Amplifier build quality, reliability, and improved electrical specs than the number of badges, bells, and whistles they can pack on the front of AVRs.

If I want internet or some feature like it in my home theater, I'll add a PS3, Popcorn Hour, Hometheater PC, or some other device like a standalone blu-ray player which has the functionality I desire.
