Integra has announced the next iterations of its reference-grade network AV receivers with its new “Dot 2” series. The new offerings step-up from 7.2 to 9.2-channels and are the first available Integra units to receive the “Works With Sonos” certification.
Designed and manufactured to the exacting standards befitting Integra’s reputation among custom installers, the new units include:
• DRX-5.2 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver (MSRP: $1,700 USD / $2,200 CAD)
• DRX-4.2 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver (MSRP: $1,400 USD / $1,800 CAD)
• DRX-3.2 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver (MSRP: $1,000 USD / $1,400 CAD)
Both the DRX-5.2 and the DRX-4.2 are THX Certified Select for theater reference sound, and support Enhanced HDBaseT LAN connection supporting HDCP 2.2-compliant 4K/60Hz video transmission; Power Over Cable (POC) in combination with optional HDB-RX1 HDBaseT Receiver, and IR and RS-232C control. The now THX Certified DRX-3.2 gets an across-the-board upgrade that includes Zone 2 HDMI with matrix switching; Zone 2 OSD and Powered Zone 3 capabilities for audio.
The three units support Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats up to 5.2.4 or 7.2.2 channels, with both the DRX-4.2 and DRX-5.2 able to support 7.2.4-channel configuration with an external amp.
Integra’s new Dot 2 series carries the “Works with Sonos” certification. Once the Integra receiver is connected to a Sonos Connect, owners will be able to send any music or source on their Sonos app to the receiver. The receiver can be grouped to other Sonos devices on the network or it can be used independently. Firmware enabling this function will be available early in June.
