Conclusions about the Integra DTR-80.3 A/V Receiver
I had the DTR-80.3 in my system for several months and overall I was really pleased with it. I thought the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 processing did a great job with my room, and I was delighted to listen to movies and music with this receiver. The DTR-80.3 has a substantial number of features and more than enough options to keep most customers and installers happy with its configurability. If you like to experiment with configuration options and tweak settings, then the DTR-80.3 is a dream. The only major feature that I wish it had is support for Apple's AirPlay. For a complicated product, it was really simple to use and the inclusion of apps for Apple and Android products is terrific. If you don't need a receiver but are intrigued by the functionality, Integra offers the exact same feature set in a processor/preamplifier version called the DHC-80.3 for $400 less than the DTR-80.3. Either way, if you have been holding off on a receiver or processor upgrade for a while, I have no reservations in telling you to take a look at the DTR-80.3 or the DHC-80.3.
