After a long break, Integra again pleases with new models by introducing the flagship AV receiver Integra DRX -8.4 . The reciever offers 11 channels of 150 W, Dirac Live automatic sound calibration system and 8K video switching. In addition, traditionally for Integra, special attention is paid to additional functions for installers.

Compatible with Control4, Crestron, Save, URC, Elan and RTI control systems, the Integra DRX-8.4 AV receiver features a quad-core processor for control and networking tasks.

The DRX -8.4 uses 32-bit audiophile DAC ES9026PRO Hyperstream® from ESS Technology. The receiver offers 11 amplification channels and two independent subwoofer outputs, which allows you to implement a surround sound system in a 7.2.4 configuration, or serve the main multi-channel and two additional stereo zones.


The Integra DRX-8.4 is equipped with Dirac Live, an automatic room acoustic calibration system that allows you to solve the main problems of your cinema hall. Room correction is set up either using the Dirac PC/MAC app and optional USB microphone (advanced version) or using the free Integra Mobile mobile app available for iOS and Android and the wired microphone included with the receiver (basic version).


The Integra DRX – 8.4 AV receiver will be available in the spring of 2023. In the US, the recommended retail price of new items will be $ 3,200 . Traditionally for the Integra brand, the distribution of the model will be carried out through installation studios.
