I've been waffling between receivers for months. First thought denon avr-4311 was all me, but these Integras seem to have less problems and all the same features minus 11.2 capability.
so . . .
Is the 80.2 worth the extra money ($800)?
Here's what audioholics has to say about the 70.2:
"If you are looking for something a little cheaper, Integra has simultaneously announced the DTR-70.2. This receiver sports almost all the same features except for slightly less power, a few less inputs, and without the separate transformers and power supplies for $2000."
If I'm going to power my front 3 with can emotiva xpa-3, is the separate transformers and power supplies worth spending the extra money for?
which is a better option: 80.2 on it's own, or 70.2 + xpa-3?
they are roughly the same price.
What about the difference between 24 and 32-bit burr-brown DACs?
