    There is very little info about the Integra online...I guess because they don't sell them online. From what I can gather, it's basically a 595 with a few extra's. Gold connections, silver knobs...some type of RS232 port.
    How would these two compare in sound? Any features the 595 has that the 5.2 lacks? Same remote?
    I can get the Integra 5.2 for $800 Canadian (around $520.00 US). I was thinking of going with the 595 but perhaps this is a better route?
    Thanks

    I own the Integra 5.2, payed $820 for it and I was getting a good deal, so $800 seems pretty good to me. There shouldn't be much of a sound difference between the two, although I never auditioned them side by side. The integra from my understanding is only upgrades from the 595, and the 595 shouldn't have any features that the Integra doesn't. Regarding the remote, I think they are very similar except that the Integra comes with a backlit remote which is very nice. The only info I have found on the 5.2 is at www.integrahometheater.com .
    hope this helps,

    I have the 595 and am very happy with it. One of the local stores that sells Integras told me that one of the big selling points was that the Integra comes with a longer warranty than the Onkyo, I think 3 years versus 1 year. When I was comparing the two lines I think there was an approx. $150 price difference, and I went with the Onkyo. Bought mine from the guys at OneCall (www.onecall.com), and was very please with the experience.
