Integra Debuts AV Receiver with Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

May 20, 2013
Integra has introduced a mid-level home theater receiver with key new home integration and performance features for 2013.  
Integra DTR-30.5
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 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.

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 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.

The Integra DTR-30.5 Network AV receivers begin shipping to dealers this month with a suggested retail price of $1,000.
