Integra's DTR-7.3 Brings Digital Networking To Home Theater
08/23/02 - Integra has introduced the DTR-7.3, a 7 x 130-Watt (6-Ohm rated) THX Select A/V receiver that seamlessly unites network audio distribution with the ability to handle every major home theater sound format currently in use. Equipped with Integra's Net-Tuneā„¢ capability, the receiver can access MP3 and PCM files from an Integra NAS-2.3 Net-Tune server, and decode Internet radio from a broadband connection. Up to 12 different users can independently access the same music library using Net-Tune Ready audio components, all over a single wired or wireless Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN).Net-Tune allows an entire household to plug into and access music stored on a central server from anywhere in their home using Net-Tune ready 'clients' such as the DTR-7.3. This system also allows for up to 12 Net-Tune clients to connect to the same network, all accessing this centralized music server simultaneously. The receiver's on-screen display shows song title, artist, album, genre, and playlist information, making the entire family's music collection easy to store and access, without the clutter of CDs and their jewel cases. Not even a CD Jukebox can hold so much music, or deliver it so quickly and easily.The DTR-7.3 is a fully-featured home theater receiver, with onboard processing for THX Surround EX 7.1, Dolby Digital EX and Dolby ProLogic II, DTS-ES, DTS Neo:6, and even DTS 96/24, which provides 5.1-channel 96 kHz audio from conventional DVD players. High quality 192 kHz/24-bit D/A converters are used on the L/C/R/SL/SR/SW channels for signal conversion, and Integra's Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) provides a smooth and noise free analog output for crystal clear sound. The DTR-7.3 features a broad suite of connectivity options and features, making it the perfect centerpiece for a complete digital entertainment center. HDTV capable 60 MHz component video switching and Y/C separation for composite to S-Video conversion are included to maintain optimum video signal integrity. A total of seven digital inputs, including one on the front panel, and one digital output are included, and 7.1-channel analog inputs accommodate SACD and DVD-Audio players. The receiver also has excellent multi-zone, multi-source features that allow the main or an alternate program to be played in up to two additional rooms. Powered Zone 2 uses the back surround channel amplifiers, while the Zone 2 line level output would use an optional external amplifier. An on-screen display provides control of all settings as well as access to Net-Tune playlists and Internet radio. A backlit preprogrammed learning remote with LCD display makes system control and integration easy. The Integra DTR-7.3 will be available in October at a suggested retail price of $1,300.
