The $2,300-suggested Integra DHC-80.3 A/V preamp processor, $2,800 DTR-80.3 A/V receiver, and $2,000 DTR-70.3 A/V receiver are 9.2-channel THX Ultra2 Plus certified systems. All are shipping.
Integra's $2,300-suggested DHC-80.3 AV preamp processor will join two new A/V receivers at the CEDIA Expo.
With Integra's implementation of DTS Neo:X, the three components up-convert stereo and multichannel soundtracks to up to 9.1 channels, though Neo:X allows for 11.1-channel implementations. The Integra implementation gives users a choice of which extra channels to add to a 5.1 system. Users could add front-height and image-widening front-wide speakers to a 5.1 system, or they could add front-wide and surround-back speakers. A third option is adding front-wide and surround-back speakers.
The trio also features Audyssey DSX post-processing, which adds front-height channels and a pair of image-widening left-right speakers to traditional 5.1-speaker setups. The products also feature Dolby ProLogic IIz post processing, which adds front-height channels.
