Integra has introduced four new multi-channel AV receivers and controllers, the HDB-RX1 4K HDBaseT Receiver; DRC-R1.1 11.2-Channel Network AV Controller; DRX-R1.1 11.2-Channel Network AV Receiver, and the DRX-7.1 9.2-Channel Network AV receiver that are expected late Fall 2017.
The company’s latest multi-channel AV receivers and controllers from the “Dot 1” series include next-generation features such as 4K HDBaseT support, Dolby Atmos, and DTS:X formats up to 7.2.4 channels; multi-zone processing; the latest wireless technologies such as Chromecast built-in with Google Assistant voice control and DTS Play-Fi multi-room hi-fi music streaming; and hand-selected components like 32-bit SHARC DSPs.
Each model also includes HDMI 8 in (1 Front), main out, and sub/Zone 2 out with support for HDCP 2.2, 4 K/60 Hz, Dolby Vision, HDR 10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), WCG (Wide Color Gamut), extended (sYCC601, Adobe RGB, Adobe YYC601), and BT.2020 video pass-through.
HDB-RX1 is certified to transmit uncompressed 4K/60 p/4:4:4 video, including HDR10 and Dolby Vision compatibility, at a full 18GB per second to an existing AVR or AV processor via new-generation 4k HDR HDBaseT LAN and HDCP 2.2-compliant HDMI output. The unit enables IR Control and RS-232 pass-through for home automation, and the HDB-RX1 carries Power Over Cable (POC) and IP control for enhanced installation flexibility.
With the THX Certified Ultra DRC-R1.1, no detail was overlooked, according to Integra. From the copper screws used to lock modular circuitry blocks to a double-skinned insulated frame, to the floating circuit boards, multiple 32-bit DSPs and DACs, the DRC-R1.1 processor was built for theater-reference sound. In addition to 4K HDBaseT support, it includes object-based audio processing through 7.2.4 channels, and features gold-plated 11.2-channel balanced XLR audio pre-outs. The unit has 32-bit SHARC DSPs (x3), independent differential audio DACs for Stereo Front L/R (384 kHz / 32-bit AK4490, Surround (768 kHz/32-bit AK4458), and separate DACs for Zone 2/Zone 3 (192 kHz/24-bit AK4388).
The DRX-R1.1 is a flagship THX-certified Select network receiver with power at 140W per channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08 percent THD, two channels driven, FTC) and all the latest 4K video support and multi-channel audio processing present in the DRC-R1.1. It too features a double-skinned and braced chassis provides rigidity for full-floating circuitry, custom shielded power supply, and shielded amplification, all of which harmonize to isolate signals from noise.
The THX-certified Select DRX-7.1 features 140W per channel at 8 ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08 percent THD, two channels driven, FTC and includes 11.2 multi-channel pre-outs to support up to 7.2.4 object-based audio speaker setup through an external 2-channel amp.
