$2000, no SubEQ HT and no MultEQ Pro Installer Ready.... The only thing I like about the 60.5 is the HDBaseT port.

The Onkyo equivalent is the receiver version like the DTR 60.5. It's the TX-NR929. The biggest difference would be HDMI out for zone 2 not HDBaseT.

After owning an Integra top of the line pre-pro, I don't understand the positioning or price of the DHC 60.5. It has 7.2 pre-outs where as the DTR 60.5 has 11.2 and 9 channels of amplification for $300 more. I'm scratching my head.

Actually I think my TX-NR929 sounds better than my Integra DTC9.8 and has no problem powering up the same room as the previous Outlaw 200 watt per channel amp.

The current top end Onkyo pre-pro is the PR-SC5509. At CEDIA the Onkyo representative said no DHC-60.5 equivalent this year and that Onkyo is only going to update every 2 years. So next year they should have a new product.

I just got the latest edition of Sound & Vision magazine in which the Integra DHC-60.5 was reviewed.... the reviewer did not like the sonic performance overall.

My next Pre/Pro will be Marantz. Onkyo has had too many service and reliability problems. Now poor sonic performance. I am out!

How do you come up with 2 years old?

The 5509 was not available for purchase in the US during CEDIA 2012 (9/6/2012). Check AVS posts.
Photos are from CEDIA 2012. As I understand it this was the first showing in US.

It came out in 2011 along with the Integra DHC-80.3 During that time, only the Integra unit was for sale in the US. This is not just a US board.

Lol people still read that rag? Better yet base a purchase on their subjective opinion? Hilarious.

I just received a new Integra DTR60.5 This is my first Integra. I am moving from an Onkyo TX-SR876. I have a question in regards to picture output.

I have an Intel NUC XBMC receiver streaming blu ray movies. The XBMC receiver was hooked up to my TX-SR876 and outputted 1080p. My new Integra is outputting 1080i 60. Is there a setting to change from 1080i 60 to 1080p 24?

Thanks for the help

Does the Integra DHC 60.5 Pre-amplifier downscale 4k to 1080p?

Can't seem to find this info. Basically, I have a 1080p projector. If I feed it a UHD Blu-ray from a UHD player, will the Integra downscale it to 1080p so that my projector can play it?

Your Bluray player should do this, if it doesnt see a 4k compatible playback device it will output 1080p. Either way i would suspect the results would be drastic loss in quality . Why not just use a regular BD player? A lot of the 4k releases come with a bd disc as well and the 4k player will play the 1080 disc.
