OP thanks for the heads up, will hold out for the PR-SC5509, the DHC looks the same as Integras

Onkyo amps historically are nothing to brag about, you will be better off with something else.
Distributors are your best bet with Onkyo Pro, that is how i got my PR-SC855P. Much more flexible pricing. Just call them up one by one.
It is customary for Onkyo to release the Pro product about a year after the Integra product to allow those most afflicted by upgraditis get their fill whilst dealers reap the phenomenal 60% markup
