Integra DHC-60.5 THX Ultra2 Plus A/V Preamplifier

Integra DHC-60.5 THX Ultra2 Plus Certified AV Processor

Integra announced the new mid-range DHC-60.5 THX Ultra2 Plus Certified A/V Preamplifier/Processor with support for HDBaseT technology, that allows HD audio/video signals to be transmitted over much longer distances and uses cables that are easier to run inside walls than HDMI cables.

By incorporating HDBaseT technology, the DHC-60.5 is optimized for whole-home distribution and can connect to compatible entertainment devices through a single CAT5e/6 cable. HDBaseT is the only technology that enables long-reach wired connectivity up to 325 feet (100 meters) for uncompressed full HD multimedia content including 3D and 2K/4K Ultra HD making it ideal for the custom integration specialists. The HDBaseT and HDMI output ports in these new Integra models can be assigned for either main or second zone configuration.
