Better late than never! While a slew of other manufacturers were spewing out high-def DVD players left and right, Integra was plotting and scheming—or maybe they were just trying to figure out which format was right for them.

They’ve decided on HD DVD for their DHS-8.8. It will have onboard HQV Reon VX video processing for scaling to 720p, 1080i or 1080p output.

The company says to also expect the unit to enable transfer of high-bit-rate audio content via HDMI version 1.3a, which allows streaming of the new lossless surround sound formats, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, as well as two high-bit-rate “lossy” formats, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio.

Other features include Wolfson and Burr-Brown 192 kHz/24-bit audio DACs and an Ethernet port for web access and updates.

Sadly, they couldn’t supply us with a photo, but we do have a price: $1,099. Expect it by the end of the year.
