During our Day-2 coverage of CES, we were pleased to announce the new line of Integra Research products. Today, we are equally pleased to inform you of the AWESOME new line of Integra products. These include the new, mighty DTR-10.5 “Built-To-Order” THX Ultra2 Home Theater Receiver and DPS-10.5 THX Ultra Certified Universal DVD/CD Player. These new models, along with the Integra Research models, are some of the first Home Theater products to include an HDMI input and output that includes Dolby Digital Surround, Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES audio. Competitive units we’ve seen during the show seem to be only offering 2-channel audio output from the HDMI. Another extremely exciting feature with these products is that they include BNC video connections between the Universal Player and Receiver. Note; this is critical as you can now use a true 75-ohm cable to hook your DVD player to your receiver and Monitor (provided your HDTV monitor has BNC). Integra and Integra Research are one of the few companies we’ve seen at CES to have this feature!

DTR-10.5 “Built-To-Order” THX Ultra2 Home Theater Receiver MSRP $3500 (base)
The DTR-10.5 Receiver is the World’s first card slot, upgradeable 7.1 channel, “Built-To-Order” A/V receiver and is based on the same cards as the Integra Research line. We are also the first to show you what’s under the hood for these products, as seen in the following pictures.

The Integra DPS-10.5 THX Ultra Certified Universal Player which will retail for around $2,500, looks like it’s going to take the world by storm. This seems to be one of the only DVD players to offer Dolby Digital output through HDMI. Not to mention the build quality that can bee seen from the picture below.

The robust build and internals of the DPS-10.5 Universal Player is not just simply for show. A high current torroidal transformer and robust power supply will ensure that all circuits perform at their best. The rigid aluminum chassis, integrated stabilizer network, and solid aluminum feet contribute to a beefy platform that will reduce vibration during room-shaking playing.
