New Integra DTC 9.8 pre/pro. Best bargain yet??
This past week at CEDIA Integra showed off their new pre/pro that offers seemingly every bell and whistle out there, doing every new audio format decoding including dts Master HD, a multitude of HDMI ins and two independent HDMI outs (one of the first to offer this feature) balanced and single ended ins and outs, all for ~$1,600!!
At this price point I can't imagine a better deal. I didn't get to hear it, but if you want a new pre/pro to handle everything now while the formats settle out, this one is so inexpensive it might be worth a look even if you know you will be upgrading it in a few years once all the dust clears!
