New Onkyo and Integra Stereo Receivers Boast Digital Connectivity and Built-in Streaming

Onkyo and its sister-brand Integra today announced new stereo receivers that get back to hi-fi basics with the modern twist of full digital connectivity and built-in streaming capability.

Slated to ship at the end of the month, the Onkyo TX-8470 sports traditional receiver styling and is priced at $799, while the Integra DTM-7.4 with its contemporary design comes in at $900. Both models are available for pre-order.

Both receivers incorporate a high-current Class G amplifier rated to deliver 100 watts/channel into 8 ohms and feature an isolated circuit board with a selectable moving magnet (MM)/moving coil (MC) phono input and onboard streaming that’s compatible with Sonos and provides direct access Spotify, Amazon Music HD, Tidal, Deezer, TuneIn radio, and Pandora in addition to supporting Chromecast built-in and Apple AirPlay. Both models are also certified as Roon Ready to ensure comprehensive compatibility with the subscription based music management software, and include a feature that is becoming increasingly rare — an AM/FM tuner — while supporting the convenience of streaming via Bluetooth and voice control through Google and Apple virtual assistants.

Other common features include an AKM Premium 32-bit/768-kHz digital-to-analog converter (DAC) to support high-resolution streaming, a custom transformer, and audio-grade low-impedance capacitors. Both models also have a large volume control on the front panel along with dials for selecting inputs and adjusting bass, treble, and balance.

The Onkyo TX-8470 and Integra DTM-7.4 provide a generous selection of connections, including four HDMI inputs and one output — all of which are Audio Return Channel (ARC)-enabled and support 8K up to 40 Gbps, one coaxial and two optical digital inputs, two USB inputs, and three analog RCA inputs plus gold-plated speaker terminals, a subwoofer output, and a Zone 2 pre-out.

The Integra DTM-7.4 expands connection options with the addition of main and subwoofer pre-outs and adds a number of custom installation (CI) features, including web setup, IP control, an RS-232 port, IR in/out, two 12-volt trigger outputs, an onboard diagnostics tool kit, and remote diagnostics and control for C4, Crestron, OvrC (cloud management), and Domotz. The receiver is also compatible with Luxul Pro Watch, VPN, and other monitoring platforms.

Designed with custom installers in mind, Integra says the receiver facilitates easy system integration and incorporates Integra’s “most robust API ever," featuring discrete commands for virtually any AVR function. The receiver also boasts custom control drivers, developed (with input from integrators) and maintained by a software team in Japan.

Other CI features include a full suite of integration software tools and compatibility with Control4 SDDP, Crestron, Josh, Savant, and other CI-focused brands. An optional rack-mount kit is available.

Onkyo and Integra are owned by Premium Audio Company (PAC), which is also home to Klipsch, Pioneer, Jamo, Mirage, Integra, Teac, Esoteric, and other audio brands. For more information on Onkyo, visit Visit for more on Integra.

"The Integra DTM-7.4 expands connection options with the addition of main and subwoofer pre-outs...." IDK if you have the wrong picture there, but the Onkyo and the Integra look absolutely identical! the Onkyo image shows main and Sub preouts as well. I have the Onkyo TX-8050 and TX-8260 Stereo receivers as well as Integra DTR 50.4 HT receiver, and the streaming capabilities of all are just outstanding- even the 8050 from 2011 (if you know what you're doing) provides limitless streaming options!
