Product Information

DRC-R1 11.2 Channel Dolby Atmos & DTS:X Network A/V Preamp

Quite simply the ultimate all-in-one solution for 11-channel object-based sound: prodigious driving power for floorstanding speaker layouts, full-scale dynamics, and breathtakingly clear imaging for your theater room with fully integrated AV entertainment throughout the home.

THX Ultra2 Plus for Reference-Level Sound

THX certification provides home consumers with an experience "as the director intended" in the cinema. THX spends 40-60 hours testing over 2000 data points ensuring that the DRC-R1 is capable of meeting rigorous audio and video performance standards for reference level, distortion-free playback, and includes THX Loudness Plus technology to bring out intricate details at lower listening levels. 

DTS:X Technology

The next generation of object-based, multi-dimensional sound from DTS is here! No longer limited by specific channels - DTS:X allows audio content to move with fluidity, accuracy, and an immersive sound never heard before. Auditory details move in front of, behind, beside, and even above the audience. DTS:X also allows you to fine-tune and customize the audio experience with adjustments available for speaker layout, dialog control and dynamic range - all helping to personalize the sonic experience that moves you.

Feel Every Dimension in Dolby Atmos

Dolby Atmos transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with jaw-dropping realism that fills your room with amazing richness and depth. Mixing a traditional channel-based audio bed with object-oriented sounds - music, movies, and video games come alive in breathtaking detail and flow in precise choreography all around you, making you feel like you are truly there. The Dolby Surround up-mixer expands audio content that is not mixed in Dolby Atmos for playback on any speaker configuration, including overhead speakers, giving you a better audio experience even without a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.

Ready for the Ultra HD Revolution

Full Bandwidth (up to 18Gbps) 4K@50/60 (2160p), 4:4:4 color space and HDCP 2.2 support ensure that this Integra receiver is ready for the UltraHD Revolution. Crystal clear video playback that offers 4 times resolution of 1080p as well as support of the newest High Dynamic Range (HDR) format to provide vastly enhanced realism by enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. Gradations, shadows and other details come alive as never before.

Stream Audio

The DRC-R1 is ready to serve up your favorite tunes with ease. Connected to your home network, you can use AirPlay to enjoy the audio from your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and PCs with iTunes. Also built-in are Spotify Connect and streaming services such as Pandora, Deezer, Sirius/XM Internet Radio, Slacker, and TuneIn, and the receiver is DLNA compatible so you can stream audio from your home network.

HDbaseT for Long Runs

HDBaseT is a newer standardized method to transmit 4K UltraHD and digital audio much farther than is recommended over HDMI alone. HDBaseT allows signals to be transmitted 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. 

Industry-Leading Digital-to-Analog Conversion (DAC)

The Asahi Kasei AK4458 384 kHz/32-bit high-performance digital-to-analog converter achieves the industry's best low-distortion characteristics using a unique digital filtering process focused on the "original sound" - authoritative, rich, and pure. This ultra-precise DAC unlocks the full potential of virtually any compressed, lossless, or - especially critical today- hi-res audio format; maximizing the sonic performance of your favorite music, movies and more. Supported formats include AAC, Apple Lossless, Dolby TrueHD, DSD 5.6 MHz, FLAC, LPCM, MP3, OggVorbis, WAV, WMA, and WMA Lossless.

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. 

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 5.6MHz 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.

Zone 2 and 3 Digital Audio

The DRC-R1 features an overabundance of Zone 2 and 3 capabilities. Using high-quality digital-to-analog conversion, internal digital sources such as Pandora, Sirius/XM, Slacker, and Spotify, as well as external sources connected via HDMI, Coax, and Toslink (2-ch PCM only) are available in Zone 2 and 3 - making it easy to share your favorite tunes throughout the house. Available HDMI matrix switching for Zone 2 and 3 allow you to do things like watch/listen to your favorite Blu-ray disc movie in the Main Zone while simultaneously watching/listening to the cable or satellite box in Zone 2 or 3. Use the free Integra remote app to fully control both Zone 2 and 3 functions from your fingertips. Whether you need to use the internal amplifier or want to use the RCA outputs to a secondary (or third) amp like the ADM-20.4 for even more power, the DRC-R1 has you covered with plenty of flexibility and ease-of-use.

Integra's Original Approach to Room Correction

AccuEQ calibration technology reveals the true potential of your speakers by eliminating standing waves from your listening space. These acoustic peaks distort the audio image and prevent your loudspeakers from voicing the sound as their designers intended. AccuEQ lets you experience the whole sonic picture without changing your speaker system's unique personality. 

Perfect for Custom Installation

You can't say integration without Integra. Integra products are designed and engineered to meet the demands of custom audio/video systems installers. The DRC-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 DRC-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. Integra works closely with control systems partners such as Savant, Crestron, URC, and RTI, and supports Control4 Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) and AMX Device Discovery for simplified system integration. 

App Control

The Integra remote app for iPod Touch/iPhone, Android, and Kindle devices is a convenient way to control your home entertainment from anywhere within wireless range. The app has a clear graphical interface to control playback, adjust settings, and handle content across multiple zones. The app serves hi-res, lossless, and compressed audio files (including 192 kHz/24-bit FLAC, DSD, and Dolby TrueHD) to the DRC-R1 from your mobile devices, and gives it stunning sound.

Watts per channel?
John H on May 1, 2018
  This is a preamp (controller)/processor only, it requires external power amplifiers to operate. It has no internal power amplifiers.
How many watts rms per channel?
Anthony G on Jan 11, 2018
  There is no wattage spec for this unit, as it is not a receiver. This is a preamplifier and tuner only, meaning it does not have an amplifier section. In order to use this unit, you will need to attach it to a power amp of your choice.
