Following up their three recently announced home theater receivers, Integra is now adding another home theater receiver, the DTR-50.7, and an AV processor, the DHC-60.7, to its 2015/16 product line. Just as with the rest of Integra's home theater products, the DTR-50.7 and DHC-60.7 are optimized for custom install home theater setups.

Audio Feature Highlights

Both units are THX Select2 Plus Certified with the DTR-50.7 providing up to a 7.2 channel speaker configuration, while the DHC-60.7 provides for 7.2 channel configuration via either RCA or XLR preamp output connections.

The DTR-50.7 and DHS-60.7 provide audio decoding and processing for most Dolby and DTS surround sound formats, including Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD, DTS:X and Neural:X (via firmware update), and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Video Feature Highlights

For video, both units provide analog-to-HDMI conversion (no upscaling), 3D and 4K pass-through with HDR support and HDCP 2.2 copy-protection (necessary for compatibility 4K Netflix streaming sources and theĀ  Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc format).


For connectivity, DHC-60.7 and DTR-50.7 both include 8 HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs, along with component and composite video inputs, digital optical/coaxial inputs, several sets of two-channel analog inputs, a set of 7.1 channel analog preamp outputs, a dedicated a dedicated phono input, and a USB port for accessing music content stored on USB flash drives.

DHC-60.7 also adds more connection flexibility for high-end setup with the inclusion of a set of analog two-channel XLR inputs and 7 channel XLR preamp outputs.

The DTR-50.7 and DHC-60.7 also provide extensive networking and internet streaming features (such as internet radio) via wired Ethernet connection (NOTE: Wifi is not built-in).

On the other hand, Apple AirPlay capability is built-in, but Bluetooth is not included in either unit.

Control Features

There are several custom control features built into both the DTR-50.7 and DHC-60.7, with the most innovative being HDBaseT. HDBaseT is a way of connecting audio, video, and network components using a single standard CAT5e/6 cable, bypassing HDMI. It is especially effective over long distances, making it practical for Multi-zone audio and video setups.

Additional custom control features provided include Bi-Directional RS232 control ports, Bi-Directional control via Ethernet, IR sensor input/output, RIHD (Remote control via HDMI), and three 12-volt triggers.

Custom Control Integration partners include: AMX, Control4, Compass Control, Crestron, ELAN, and RTI

For more basic control, the DTR-50.7 and DHC-60.7 can both be operated by a standard provided remote control, or via the Integra Remote App for compatible iOS and Android devices.

More Info

The DTR-50.7 is rated at 135 WPC (2-channels driven with 8-ohm speaker loads, from 20Hz-20kHz, with 0.08 THD), and is priced at $1,700.

For more details on what the above-stated power ratings mean with respect to real-world conditions, refer to my article: Understanding Amplifier Power Output Specifications.

The DHC-60.7 A/V processor is priced at $2,000. However, unlike the DTR-50.7, the DHC-60.7 does not have built-in amplifiers or speaker terminals. In other words, the DHC-60.7 requires an additionally purchased external multi-channel amplifier, or individual power amplifiers for each channel, in order to supply power to speakers. Although the choice of amplifiers is up to the user, Integra provides some possible options.
