Seems to me the way to go with this is to buy the unit that does what one wants it to do. Not to whine about the unit not doing something it was never meant to.
What is invalid is buying the 80.3 if one needs 11 channels.
Yes, I'd imagine so. What they didn't do was buy the 80.3 and then complain that it only does 9 channels.
It's just not a valid criticism to criticise something for not doing what it was never designed to do in the first place.
Yes, I would guarantee you that you're the ONLY one on this thread who doesn't understand.
No one (at least on this thread that I've read) has BOUGHT ANYTHING, EXPECTING ANYTHING. The point- and only point- is that the top-level Integra pre pro doesn't offer 11 channel output. It appears nothing will acquaint you with that simple reality though. And I'm not whining- I asked a simple question because I was considering the unit- you're the one dragging this out by turning this into an absolutey foolish, absurd ordeal by either willfully or ignorantly misrepresenting what I've said.
It'd be like chevy putting a v-6 in the corvette and then saying people's criticisms that it's not a v- 8 are not valid because it's a car with a V-6. Well, no $hit. But of course it's not about the ENGINE, per se, but the top of the line CAR and what they expect at this price-point in 2012. Guess that means their crticisms wouldn't be valid.
And sure leaving off channels 10 and 11 are not as extreme as the above example, I'm just providing you with another one, seeing this one- which is fantastcially straightforward- doesn't seem to be working.
As others have said: if Integra has deemed 11 channel operation as non-essential, fine. That doesn't mean folks looking at a $3,000 unit like this one have to be ecstatic or "unsurprised" by the omission at this price point in 2012.
