While we’re still waiting for that trickle of 3D content to turn into a flood, there’s no such shortage on the A/V gear end.
The latest to prep for the home 3D party is Integra, the leading A/V receiver brand used among custom electronics (CE) pros according to statistics from our sister publication’s annual CE Pro 100 survey.
Integra’s DTR-30.2 and DTR-20.2 receivers are THX Select 2 Plus certified for quality imagery and come with HDMI 1.4a ports that allow for 3D video signal passthrough from your Blu-ray player to the display. The HDMI 1.4a spec is also ready for 3D broadcast content of “side-by-side” and “top-and-bottom” formats.
With five rear HDMI inputs and one output, both receivers are capable of handling a slew of sources and simplifying the signal routing to your display. The DTR-30.2 also has one front-panel HDMI input. Faroudja DCDi Cinema processing upscales video to 1080p.
Of course, the HDMI wealth also allows for your Blu-ray’s uncompressed audio formats of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and the DTR-30.2 brings in the latest Dolby ProLogic IIz processing of “height channels” for further enveloping surround sound in the front.
The 90-watts-per-channel DTR-20.2 and 100-wpc DTR-30.2 are out now with MSRPs of $600 and $800.
