    It looks like this may be the new pre/amp to beat. I wonder how it will compare to others like Outlaw?

    Integra Introduces Its First Home Theatre Separates
    Integra has introduced its first separate audio video components, the Integra DTC-9.4 preamplifier/processor/tuner and DTA-9.4 "Pure Digital" power amplifier.
    "The introduction of these separate components creates a new opportunity for Integra dealers and custom installers," said Eric Harper, Integra and Custom Installation Product Manager. "With the DTC-9.4, they can package systems incorporating performance levels and features previously found only on high-end controllers at many times the price. Thanks to the digital amplifier technology we've developed for the DTA-9.4, they can now provide high power and exceptional sound in a chassis that will run at full power day after day with no hesitation."
    Integra DTC-9.4 Preamplifier/Processor/Tuner
    The Integra THX® Ultra2-certified DTC-9.4 is a high-performance, 7.1-channel preamplifier/processor/tuner. It features decoding of every major surround sound format currently in use, connectivity with balanced XLR outputs for all channels, a CHAD touch-screen LCD remote, and Net-Tune Ethernet client capability, which gives it the ability to playback digital music files over a home computer network. The DTC-9.4 is the first multichannel preamplifier/processor to carry the Integra name. An original design, low-jitter clock circuit, dual 32-bit DSPs, and 192 kHz/24-bit DACs are among the key technical features. The Integra DTC-9.4 will be available in May at a suggested retail price of $2,000
    Integra DTA-9.4 "Pure Digital" Power Amplifier
    The Integra DTA-9.4 seven-channel power amplifier is the company's first digital and first multichannel home theatre power amplifier. The DTA-9.4 "Pure Digital" amplifier features Integra's exclusive digital technology, and is claimed to maintain optimal power linearity across the full impedance range of modern loudspeakers. It is rated to deliver 120 watts into seven channels at 8 ohms, and doubles that power for 4-ohm loads, delivering 240 watts per channel. Designed specifically for multichannel home theatre, the DTA-9.4's digital design is said to yield an operating efficiency of 90 percent, more than twice that of conventional Class A/B amplifiers, while at the same time having a smaller chassis "footprint." The DTA-9.4 also features Integra's Vector Linear PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology, which combines an advanced digital switching topology with sophisticated noise-shaping circuitry. The Integra DTA-9.4 will be available in May at a suggested retail price of $3,000.

    Looked good, but I don't see any "analog bypass"?

    Is there any information about a possible Firewire upgrade with bass management and speaker distance compensation for SACD and DVD-A? If not, high-resolution audio enthusiasts may want to consider a receiver or processor that has those features or one that can be upgraded.
