Most maybe, but not all. There is at least one person who upgraded (or downgraded if that's how you want to look at it) from an Anthem D2 which retails for four times the price of the Integra. He has no regrets and isn't looking back. He's very satisfied with the Integra 9.8 compared to the Anthem D2.
He's commented about the 9.8 on at least two different forums.
For what it's worth I ordered an Integra 9.8 the first week of August and I'm still waiting...
