I went with the DTR 6.4 over the 701 because of the following: 24/192 DACs all around instead of mix of 24/96 and 24/192, three year warranty instead of two year warranty and most importantly, the digital bass management/time alignment option for the multichannel inputs on the DTR (not available on the 701). The 5.5 is based on the 602 not the 702, so that's a more direct comparison (though pricewise, the matchup you have makes sense). I made a careful examination of the feature sets between the Onkyo and the Integra before choosing. You should probably decide what features you want/need and go from there. Good luck.

Well, just to be honest I haven't purchased a receiver in like 17 years (and it was a Onkyo).... We are moving into our new home at the end of the month and this will be my first surround sound system.... So, I guess I'm not sure what I need besides:


7.1

2nd Zone

Inputs needed for other components


I guess I'm a newb.... Man, I hate saying that about myself... Especially since I've been a programmer for many years... :) I'm supposed to be tech inclined...

Yes! However, the Integra model has A-Bus and an RS-232 port for control, as well as video upconversion of composite and s-video to component, whereas the Onkyo model only upconverts composite to S-Video.


Integra versions supposedly have better capacitors and other components than the Onkyo versions.
