Integra Shows Surround and Stereo Receivers

The big news from the Integra front is that all the surround receivers announced at 2015 CES now support HDMI 2.0a, accommodating the metadata that drives HDR, a significant improvement to Ultra HD. Also supported is HDCP 2.2, the anti-copy technology necessary to get UHD signals from sources to UHDTVs. Like most other manufacturers, Integra is going to support DTS:X height-enhanced surround via firmware update to come next year. The only new receiver announced at CEDIA was a stereo model, the Integra DTM-40.7 ($600), which includes Wi-Fi, AirPlay, Bluetooth, dual zones, and 32-bit DAC.

Now that Cabasse is being distributed by Integra, its distinctive speakers were on display at the same booth. Cabasse is moving into streaming with the Stream Amp ($700), which does both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
