Integra Delivers Its First HDMI 1.3 Compatible AV Receiver With Dolby TrueHD & DTS-HD
 
Integra, a company that produces audio-video receivers specifically designed for custom home electronics installers and systems integrators, has announced immediate deliveries of its first home theater receiver with HDMI 1.3a processing. The Integra DTR-5.8 AV receiver allows the end-user to exploit the advanced audio and video capabilities of high definition HD DVD players, Blu-ray players, Sony's PlayStation3 gaming system, and other advanced systems that fully implement the HDMI 1.3a standard.

"The DTR-5.8 is the first of several important new products from Integra over the coming months," comments Integra Director of Sales, Keith Haas. "We have made important upgrades to our A/V receivers' feature sets, including HDMI v1.3a compatibility and decoding for the new lossless and high definition audio formats. As with all Integra products, the DTR-5.8 has advanced systems integration features for easier interface with multi-room and home automation technology, making it possible for our custom installing dealers to achieve lower support costs and higher profitability."

With two HDMI v.1.3a inputs and 1 output, the DTR-5.8 is completely compatible with full 1080p digital video signals, including Deep Color (36 bit) information. It is among the first receivers to include internal decoding for DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby TrueHD, and Dolby Digital Plus lossless and high-resolution audio formats. Legacy analog video sources are all seamlessly transcoded to both HDMI and component video, including Faroudja DCDi Edge Technology de-interlaceing for 480i signals.

The DTR-5.8 includes a wide range of features specifically tailored to the needs of custom installers, such as bi-directional RS-232, RIHD (Remote Interactive over HDMI) system control integration over HDMI, three programmable 12-volt triggers, dual IR inputs, and three unique assignable IR code sets. It also has extensive independent Zone 2 capabilities via fixed and variable line outputs, or by using two of the seven main amplifiers. An Audyssey 2EQ room correction and calibration system simplifies speaker and room setup. Since professional installers will set up most of these receivers, customized dealer settings can be independently stored for easy recall.

Integra's DTR-5.8 is also the company's first receiver to feature compatibility with both XM and Sirius satellite radio programming. The addition of an optional antenna system for either network enables consumers to subscribe to and receive hundreds of channels of commercial-free music, news, talk, and entertainment programming. The receiver also includes onboard Neural THX processing for reception of multichannel XM HD surround programming. Finally, there is also a high quality terrestrial radio tuner, and the receiver features 40 presets for AM, FM, XM, or Sirius stations.

The Integra DTR-5.8 has a seven-channel amplifier section rated at 90 Watts per channel into 8 ohms, and 110 Watts into 6 ohms. With its high-current power supply, Wide-Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT), and discrete power output devices this receiver can drive high power levels with low noise, and smooth response from 5 Hz to 100 kHz.

For audiophiles, the front channels are bi-amp-capable by using two surround channels to compliment the front channels.

The Integra DTR-5.8 is now available from Integra dealers with a suggested retail price of $800.

This is great news! I have been waiting for the audio decoding to upgrade to a processor with HDMI switching. Hopefully others will follow soon.

I thought the Onkyo SR805 is already doing this, is it not?

Onkyo USA Home Theater Products

I went to a local high end home theater store yesterday to check on the availability of this receiver and other HDMI 1.3 compliant processors.

They told me to "wait it out". They mentioned that they have been having "handshaking" issues with all of the existing HDMI 1.3 switch receivers and processors that they carry, including this unit. They mentioned random loss of only the picture, random loss of only sound and sometimes both.

What's up with that?

there are certainly other models rolling out in Sep or so but the Onkyo SR805 seems to be hard to beat in the C/P ratio department. As with drop outs in vidoe/audio, I wonder what setup were they referring to as 1.3 compliant items are few and far in between anyway.

I have the new Onyko 605 and i cant get it to pass the video from my new Panasonic DMP-BD10ak! I get sound but no picture! I cant get a straight answer from either Onyko or Panasonic. They both blame each other for the problem! I know the video works because if i run the HDMI right to the tv i get a picture. But as soon as i plug the HDMI to the 605 "POOF" no picture .
