| 09/24/04 - INDIANAPOLIS, IN (09/07/04) – Integra reaffirmed its commitment to custom installation and distributed audio professionals at the CEDIA Expo today with the introduction of the affordable DTR-4.5 home theater receiver. It is a 5 x 85-Watt A/V receiver that not only handles every major home theater sound format currently in use, it also incorporates the industry standard A-BUS™ distributed audio technology. Other features include upconversion of composite to s-video, and Integra's Powered Zone 2 capability.
The DTR-4.5 is an exceptional home theater receiver, with onboard processing for Dolby Digital and ProLogic II, DTS, DTS Neo:6, and DTS 96/24. The high quality 192 kHz/24-bit DAC found on each channel is combined with Integra's VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) to smooth the analog output, generating cleaner and more detailed audio reproduction. For analog sources, Integra's Direct audio mode allows all digital processing to be completely bypassed to preserve the purity of analog audio signals.
Like all Integra products, the DTR-4.5 was designed with the demanding needs of custom installers in mind. It includes a rear panel RS-232 port, three programmable 12-volt trigger outputs, and IR input and output jacks for seamless integration with nearly any home theater and whole-home control system. There is also a wide array of multizone capabilities, including two-source multizone capability using Zone 2 line-out jacks with external amplification, or Powered Zone 2; both of which feature bass and treble controls, allowing users to separately adjust the audio in the second room.
As the centerpiece of a powerful home theater system, the DTR-4.5 features a broad suite of connectivity options and features. Three HDTV-capable 50 MHz component video inputs and a digital comb filter for composite to s-video conversion are included to maintain optimum video signal integrity. There are a total of four assignable digital inputs as well as a 5.1-channel input for DVD-Audio and SACD.
The Integra DTR-4.5 will be available in September at a suggested retail price of $500.
