Advanced Hybrid Digital Amplifier Design
Modern Design Meets Legendary Performance. Integra amplifier designs have always been known for delivering voluminous loads of current via massive, oversized power supply sections -providing precise speaker control and dynamics. The DRX-R1 combines this legendary performance with today’s ultra-efficient digital output stages, proprietary filtering technologies, and oversized low pass filter coils- resulting in stunning audio clarity, accuracy and musicality- across the entire audio output range.
The DRX-R1 is certified Select2 Plus by THX. In order to satisfy THX parameters, 40-60 hours of testing over 2000 data points ensure that the DRX-R1 is capable of meeting rigorous audio and video performance standards, resulting in reference level, distortion free playback. This goes on to include THX Loudness Plus technology, to bring out intricate details at lower listening levels.
Hi-Resolution Audio Powerhouse
Hear your music library as never before. High-Resolution means studio quality sound recording to extract additional elements, nuances and details far beyond the capabilities of standard CD to virtually put you in the room with your favorite musician. Integra makes it incredibly easy to access and enjoy audio files mastered in high-resolution (up to 192kHz/24-bit) stored on a computer, media server, network-attached storage (NAS) or USB thumb drive with zero loss in audio quality. Virtually every hi-resolution and lossless format is supported- 2.8 or 5.6 MHz DSD, Dolby® TrueHD as well as gapless playback of FLAC, WAV, ALAC and WMA files. Dual 32-bit DSP Engines and premium quality Texas Instruments digital to analog converters ensure effortless high-quality playback and excellent sound quality.
Smooth Analog Signal
Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) – say that 3 times fast… All kidding aside- you don't have to say it- but you can definitely hear the difference. In today’s digital audio world- the process of converting digital to analog inevitably introduces pulse noise- distorting the original audio image. and then amplifying it together with the original signal, compromising sound quality. Integra’s exclusive VLSC technology compares the input signal to the outgoing signal and filters out pulse noise. Thus allowing original signal to be regenerated so that the audio signal is the same as what was captured on the recording- faithfully and accurately. This results in the DRX-R1 producing a virtually noiseless audio signal across all channels.
Flexible Zone 2 & 3
The DRX-R1 features Powered Zone 2 and 3 to bring audio to speakers connected to the receiver into a second room and third room. Zone 2 and Zone 3 Pre/Line Out are also included for use with an outboard amp. The DRX-R1 also includes a Zone 2 DAC for HDMI Inputs 1 through 5, Coax and Optical Inputs (2-CH PCM), Network (including Pandora and Spotify), and USB audio sources. There are also maximum power and power on volume settings for the Main Zone, Zone 2 and Zone 3 to further customize your listening experience and help get the best performance out of your speakers. The DRX-R1 also includes a Whole House Audio Mode- which allows you to turn on and synchronize all audio zones with a single button push of a single button- Now that’s convenience!
HDBaseT Port for Multimedia Distribution
HDBaseT transmitts audio and video signals clearly up to 328 feet utilizing cat5e/cat6 cable to any certified third party HDBaseT receiver or device that has its own power supply. This makes long distance runs to projectors or a second zone easy and reliable.

The Best Build and Flexibility
Integra components are not just built- they are substantially and purposely overbuilt. Exceptional design and rigid construction techniques are used throughout- high-quality anti-resonant aluminum faceplate, gold plated RCA terminals, oversized detachable AC cord, reinforced steel chassis, massive feet, and single-piece extruded aluminum heat sinks- just to name a few.
High Performance Processing
The DRX-R1 employs premium ultramodern digital to analog converters and digital signal processing engines. Three Analog Devices SHRC 32-bit SHARC 32-bit digital signal processors can each handle over 6 billion operations per minute to fully handle the latest in object based surround processing, advanced AccuEQ with AccuReflex room correction and more. Multiple studio reference grade AKM DAC’s (including 768 kHz/32-bit) allow the Reference Series products to fully handle the latest in lossless Hi-Resolution audio formats.
Integra's Original Approach to Room Correction
AccuEQ conducts two measurements- one to set the level, distance and crossover for ALL speakers, including the subwoofer. Choose to include or bypass EQ measurement for front left and right speakers, and choose to automatically or manually set the EQ. Further, you can save your own manual EQ settings into three available presets.
The new AccuReflex technology aligns the phase of upfiring "height" speakers with the sound coming directly from your other speakers. Any delay is resolved so that everything arrives at your ears at the same time. The result is cohesive reproduction of object-based soundtracks.
Perfect for Custom Installation
Integra products are designed and engineered to meet the demands of custom audio/video systems installers. Besides Dealer Settings Memory Store and Recall with Lock / Unlock and PC Software Support, the DRX-R1 includes system integration connectivity such as RS232 and IP control with support for 2-way communication with 3rd party home automation systems. A pair of infrared (IR) inputs and an IR output make for a clean, reliable installation and allow pass-through of IR signals to control other devices connected to the DRX-R1, such as a TV or Blu-ray player. Three fully programmable 12 volt triggers can be used to raise/lower a projection screen, power on/off an external amplifier and open/close the drapes all with the touch of a button. Optional rack mount kits for all models provide a clean, finished look when installed in racks and cabinets, especially with the unit's aluminum faceplate. Integra works closely with control systems partners such as Savant, Crestron, URC, RTI, and Ihiji and supports Control4 Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) and AMX Device Discovery for simplified system integration.
☆Note: Support for Chromecast built-in™, FireConnect™ and MQA functionality will be enabled on these receivers following future firmware updates.
