Integra’s 7.1 channel, THX Ultra 2 Plus certified DTR-9.9 receiver is incredibly complete in its feature set.  Receiving a great deal of positive coverage, reviews often stated that the biggest downside to the DTR-9.9 was that it offered too much, making setup and operation a bit complex.

Though the 9.9 offers 7.1 channels of surround sound, Integra takes into account the possibility that owners may have a 5.1 speaker setup, and so allows the front speakers to be biamped by the two spare channels. 

The DTR-9.9 has a 145 watt output per channel at 8 Ohms, and is certified for performance at 4.  It features a frequency response from 5Hz up to 110KHz and a signal to noise ratio of 110dB.  Crossover frequency can be set anywhere from 40Hz to 200Hz and is able to be adjusted by channel pairing, meaning that the front, surround and center channels can all have their own individual crossover points.

Audyssey MultEQ XT is an increasingly popular feature for receivers that greatly simplifies calibration and cuts down on the amount of time spent setting up the receiver rather than enjoying its sound.  Using an included microphone, MultEQ XT takes measurements from various listening positions and adjusts the crossover, level and equalization for each channel.

Integra’s DTR-9.9 decodes, as one would expect, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.  Along with Audyssey’s MultEQ feature, the DTR-9.9 offers audio features such as Dynamic EQ, and Dynamic Volume, and THX Loudness Plus.

No slouch on the visual side of things, the Integra 9.9 sports HQV’s Reon-VX chip for video processing.  The Reon-VX also takes care of upscaling, up to 1080p.  Up to four individual HDMI inputs are available, and a pair of HDMI outs.
