Well, I just received my Integra 5.2 (replacing my old Sony Prologic 1090) and have it set up. It sounds great and many things I like. Some things I miss from the old Sony: The cool level display that actually showed the level going into each speaker in a sound field. The ability to input labels for things (IE change video 1 to "VCR" and Video 2 to "Satellite"..label each radio station etc) The bass extension button for low volume bass increase. All the DSP adjustments I could make....wall hardness, room size etc (you could make things sound awful) didn't use this much though. What I like about the Integra: Better sound production!! All the new options DD, DTS Pro2 etc. The volume control....the sony went from quiet to super loud...the 5.2 goes nice and slow. Did I mention Way better sound!!!?? Now...I almost bought a Onkyo 595 but got the 5.2 for the same price...but had to wait a little. The 5.2 has the following the 595 lacks: Silver finished BACKLIT remote ...like it! (595 not backlit) detatchable power cord....good I guess...easier to set it in place. gold connectors...I guess their better. silver knobs. a RS232 port...?? for control? Not sure what to do with that....control via a computer? I/R input and output....for other Onkyo/integra devices....I guess if your remote wouldn't reach something. A 12volt trigger?? Have I missed anything? Different internal components? Anyhow, I think waiting for the 5.2 was worth it over the 595. Now if I could just stop switching between modes! Any other Integra owners?
