Integra announced its new, top-of-the-line DHC-80.3 THX-Ultra2 Plus Certified AV preamplifier/processor featuring HQV-Vida video processors, DTS Neo:X dimensional surround processing, Dolby Volume processing, improved networking and streaming media capabilities, plus numerous other features not included in last year’s models.

The 9.2-channel DHC-80.3 uses the new DTS Neo:X dimensional sound processor, which is the industry’s first 2.0/5.1/6.1/7.1-to- 9.1/11.1 conversion technology within a single algorithm, in addition to Audyssey DSX, and Dolby ProLogic IIz.. With eleven speaker- or line-outputs, it can accommodate a variety of different combinations of front, height, wide, and surround channels without the need to rewire speakers. The DHC-80.3 uses high-end balanced XLR outputs designed for optimal performance with a comparable high-end nine-channel power amplifier, like the Integra DTA-70.1.

The Integra DHC-80.3 uses the new IDT HQV Vida VHD1900 video processor, which replaces last year’s HQV ReonVX chipset from the DHC-80.2. The new chipset provides additional high-performance video processing, including enhancement of low-resolution streaming video, and to facilitate ISFccc calibration capabilities.
