The new Integra ‘Dot 2’ 9.2 channel network AV receiver series has upgraded from 7.2 to 9.2 channels and features the ‘Works with SONOS®’ certification.

Designed for the custom installer, the reference-grade Dot 2 AV receiver is constructed with Integra’s renowned quality components providing home theatre set-ups with superior audio and video entertainment.

Featuring the latest technology, users can benefit from wireless multi-room audio playback via Chromecast built-in, DTS Play-Fi and FlareConnect, integration with existing SONOS Home Sound Systems and streaming on-demand music services such as Amazon Music, Spotify®, TIDAL and Tune.


Users with new or existing SONOS Home Sound Systems with SONOS Connect can enjoy full integration using the Integra Dot 2 series. Once the receiver is connected to SONOS Connect, users can send audio via the SONOS app directly to the receiver. The receiver will wake-up and change inputs automatically and can be used as part of a group with other connected SONOS devices or independently.

The DRX 3.2 upgrades include Zone 2 HDMI with matrix switching and Zone 2 OSD, allowing video transmission to multiple TVs around the home. Powered Zone 3 capabilities allow powered audio to be distributed simultaneously to Zone 2 and Zone 3 while still retaining a five-channel home theatre set-up in the main zone.

Both the DRX 4.2 and 5.2 receiver can be connected easily to the most up-to-date Ultra4K TV with HDCP 2.2 compliant 4k/60Hz video transmission and enhanced HDBaseT LAN connection support. Both receivers are THX Certified Select™ providing theatre quality audio.

All three units include Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X formats up to 5.2.4 or 7.2.2 channels, with both the DRX 4.2 and DRX 5.2 supporting a 7.2.4 channel configuration with an external amp.

The new Integra 9.2 channel AV receiver series allows integrators to seamlessly install home theatre systems with additional zone requirements.
