Integra has introduced a flagship audio video receiver (AVR) to its line-up of advanced electronics that the company says will allow integrators maximum flexibility and control while saving them time and money.
Available from Indigo Distribution in the UK, Integra says this new introduction is packed with the most advanced technology. The all-new DRX-8.4 11.4 150-watt-per-channel network receiver is the integrator-approved solution for the world’s finest home theatres, says the maker.
Exhaustively tested and built through close working relationships with professional installers, this superior AVR exceeds high expectations with a full suite of integration software tools and XLR connectivity for long cable runs common in high-end home theatre spaces, says its creator. The Integra DRX-8.4 is compatible with remote monitoring platforms to help manage, configure, and troubleshoot devices on the network, saving countless hours and expenses from site visits.
The DRX-8.4 comes with wireless Dirac Live room calibration Full Version – and an optional upgrade for Dirac Live Bass Control Multi Subwoofer – which uses machine learning and AI to quickly determine ideal settings for any layout. The Integra DRX-8.4 AVR includes advanced music streaming and connectivity and built-in smart home assistants like Josh, Alexa, and Google. Roon Ready certification puts entire high-resolution music libraries at user’s fingertips.
Integra further states the whole home entertainment experience can be aligned with this state-of-the-art technology and fuelled by studio-grade processing capability, including the industry’s highest-performance 32-bit audio DAC to provide an unprecedented dynamic range with ultra-low distortion. Extruded anti-resonant aluminium heat sinks and high-grade capacitors balance consumption and output requirements for optimal amplifier performance. At the same time, IP control, web setup from your preferred browser, and onboard HDMI diagnostics make installing and managing the Integra DRX-8.4 AVR straight-forward.
The Integra DRX-8.4 will be available Q3 (RRP TBC) through authorised Integra integration partners. The Integra DRX-8.4 joins the award-winning DRX series of Integra AVRs introduced in 2021. The line features Advanced CI tools such as remote monitoring, Dirac Live digital room correction, HDMI 2.1 and 8K for much higher bandwidth, better audio, faster gameplay, consistency and performance and Bluetooth transmitters with aptX for sharing audio to Bluetooth headphones
