Re: Who Bought the Integra DTC-9.8?
The Integra is probably a bit less quality than the Sunfire. But keep in mind that the Integra is borrowing most of it's current technology from the Anthem line as they are under the same coorporate umbrella. The Anthem product line is pretty equal to the sunfire gear sonically. I don't have amuch experience with the Sunfire other than what I have read but I have worked with both Integra and Anthem extensively.
There is definately a difference between them and the Anthem stuff does sound pretty damn good. The circuitry that they share is mostly in the switching side (3 zone & HDMI). The audio sections are still pretty different.
