DTR-50.5 website:
http://www.integrahometheater.com/model.cfm?m=DTR-50.5&class=Receiver&p=f

Observations of new DTR-50.5 vs last year's 50.4:
- $225 more expensive
- loses Independent Block Construction
- loses DTS Neo X
- loses Dolby Volume
- loses MultEQ XT32 (now MultEQ)
- only 5-Band Speaker EQ (vs 15)
- loses ISF Certification (ISFccc)
- gains 4K passthrough (pointless spec, currently limited by HDMI to 24/30 fps)
- loses D-Sub (15-pin) VGA Input
- loses 1 Optical Audio Input
- loses 2 Analog Audio Inputs
- loses Multi-Channel Input
- loses 2 Analog Pre-outs
- loses 1 Rear USB Input
- gains Built-In Wi-Fi
- gains Built-In Bluetooth
- loses Zone 2 Composite Video Output

Looks like best 2013 option that includes XT32, Neo X, and Wi-Fi at a reasonable price is the consumer Onkyo TX-NR929... heck, it's even $300 cheaper than the DTR-50.5. We're also expecting a new 60.5 model that should have all the above specs but will likely come in at $2000+... then again, might as well just wait for the new HDMI spec for legit 4K support!

See attached for a spreadsheet I've been updating that compares specs for the following Onkyo and Integra models:

DTR-30.4
DTR-40.4
DTR-40.5
DTR-50.4
DTR-50.5
DTR-70.4
TX-NR818
TX-NR828
TX-NR929

* Disclaimer: There's a good chance that a few of the specs are wrong. This was intended for MY use only... but decided I might share.

Enjoy.

If we're to believe the rumors, it appears that Integra will once again NOT be replacing the 80.3 PRE so I'm anxious to see what they offer in the 11 channel AVR arena and the price point. Sealing the deal with mutli zone HDMI audio- or at least digital input playback to said zones would give me something to seriously consider. Denon missed the target by offering two models: one without 11 channel playback but digital inputs to the zones, the other, the complete opposite: 11 channels but no digital inputs to the zones.

I am just curious as to how the newer 40.5 compares to the older 40.1? My bother in law has the 40.1 and is considering up-grading to the 40.5, but is unsure if that would offer any advantages that are actually useful to him as he only uses it for Bluray play-back, not music or regular DVD playback. I am not sure what kind of room correction the 40.1 has but if the 40.5 has a better version of Audyssey then that in and of itself may be worth it. Also, he has no need for the networking features.

So do you guys think it would be worth it to upgrade from the 40.1 to the 40.5? How much can he expect to get out of his 40.1 if he sells it on A-gon or ebay? Is it worth $400? or more like $300?

that's a weird direction they take... it seems that they are aiming to regular consumer market (where there is onkyo)... all features used by custom installers are vanished in the new 50.5...

grab a 50.4 while they last I guess...
