HDBaseT Appearing In More Components


UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. – Integra joined Pioneer in adding HDBaseT technology to home audio components, with Integra adding the technology to an A/V receiver and an A/V preamp processor.

The Integra DHC-60.5 A/V preamp processor and DTR-60.5 A/V receiver will be available in August at a suggested $2,000 and $2,300, respectively.

Pioneer recently unveiled a $3,000 A/V receiver with the technology.

HDBaseT sends uncompressed HDMI video, including 3D and 2K/4K Ultra HD video, plus multichannel audio up to 328 feet (100 meters) over inexpensive CAT-5e or CAT-6 cable instead of over expensive HDMI cable. The HDBaseT output port in the two components can be assigned for either main- or second-zone configuration.

The DTR-60.5 9.2-channel networked AVR features THX Select2 Plus certification, 9x135-watt output, nine HDMI inputs, one HDMI output, an HDBaseT port, and 11.2-channel pre-outs to add on an outboard amp to deliver 11-channel DTS Neo:X up-mixing for surround-sound playback.
