Integra  DRC-R1.1 Black 11.2-Channel Network A/V Processor



From the finest details, from copper screws used to lock modular circuitry blocks to a double-skinned insulated frame, to fl oating circuit boards, multiple 32-bit DSPs and DACs, to gold-plated terminals and on to state-of-the-art front-end technologies, such as HDBT™, Chromecast built-in, and object-based audio through 7.2.4 channels, the DRC-R1.1 sits at the pinnacle of THX® Certified Ultra™ home entertainment design.



Works with Sonos

Once the receiver is connected to Sonos Connect, any music or source can be sent from the Sonos app to the receiver. The receiver can be grouped to other Sonos devices on the network or it can be used independently. 


THX® Certified Ultra™ for Reference-Level Sound

THX certification provides home consumers with an experience "as the director intended" in the cinema. THX spends 40-60 hours testing over 1500 data points for AV Processors; ensuring that the DRC-R1.1 is capable of meeting rigorous audio and video performance standards for reference level, distortion-free playback and includes THX Loudness Plus technology to bring out intricate details at lower listening levels. 



DTS:X Technology

The next generation of object-based, multi-dimensional sound from DTS is here! No longer limited by specific channels- DTS:X allows audio content to move with fluidity, accuracy and an immersive sound never heard before. Auditory details move in front of, behind, beside and even above the audience. DTS:X also allows you to fine tune and customize the audio experience with adjustments available for speaker layout, dialog control and dynamic range - all helping to personalize the sonic experience that moves you.


DTS Play-Fi® Multi-room Audio

The DRC-R1.1 includes DTS Play-Fi technology. DTS Play-Fi is the most widely adopted Whole Home Audio Technology in the marketplace- it puts you in complete control of your Music and allows you to effortlessly stream from your smartphone, tablet, or PC to DTS Play-Fi speakers and devices throughout the home. Stream a Music playlist throughout the entire house while entertaining or simply enjoy your favorite artist or album in a single room- DTS Play-Fi offers better sound quality, greater range and a wider variety of compatible devices than other wireless Whole Home music technologies. Easy to set-up, easy to expand, and easy to enjoy- DTS Play-Fi and Integra- a smart solution. 


Feel Every Dimension in Dolby Atmos™

Dolby Atmos transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with jaw-dropping realism that fills your room with amazing richness and depth. Mixing a traditional channel-based audio bed with object-oriented sounds- music, movies, and video games come alive in breathtaking detail and flow in precise choreography all around you, making you feel like you are truly there. The Dolby Surround upmixer expands audio content that is not mixed in Dolby Atmos for playback on any speaker configuration, including overhead speakers- giving you a better audio experience even without a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.


Ready for the Ultra HD Revolution

Full Bandwidth (up to 18Gbps) 4K/60Hz (2160p), 4:4:4 color space, Dolby Vision and HDCP 2.2 support ensure that this Integra receiver is ready for the UltraHD Revolution. Crystal clear video playback that offers 4 times resolution of 1080p as well as support of the newest High Dynamic Range (HDR) format to provide vastly enhanced realism by enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. Gradations, shadows and other details come alive as never before.


Stream it Easy

The DRC-R1.1 has Chromecast built-in for Audio and Apple AirPlay technologies built in. Stream virtually any audio from a smartphone, tablet or PC to your home theater for powerful sound. 

With Spotify, Tidal, Pandora, Deezer and TuneIn built-in, you can select a station and search for music available on these services via the Integra Control Product app on your smartphone or tablet. The free Integra Control Pro app puts a range of streaming options at your fingertips, from universal hi-res audio via network-attached devices to internet streaming services to music on your smartphone and tablet. 


4K HDbaseT for Long Runs

The world's first full 18 Gbps support! The 4K HDBaseT includes 4K/60Hz @4:4:4 / HDCP 2.2, Dolby Vision (up to 4K/30Hz), HDR 10, HLG, and WGC. Audio and video signals can clearly be transmitted up to 328 feet utilizing cat5e/cat6 cable to any certified third party HDBaseT receiver or device that has its own power supply. The POC enables compatibility with more Rx Devices and makes long distance runs to projectors or a second zone easy and reliable. Furthermore, the control of the enhanced HDBaseT can be accessed through both the IR input / IR Output & Bi-directional RS-232 feeds. 


Industry-Leading Digital-to-Analog Conversion (DAC)

The Asahi Kasei AK4458 384 kHz / 32-bit high-performance digital-to-analog converter achieves the industry's best low distortion characteristics using a unique digital filtering process focused on the "original sound" - authoritative, rich, and pure. This ultra-precise DAC unlocks the full potential of virtually any compressed, lossless, or - especially critical today- Hi-res Audio format; maximizing the sonic performance of your favorite music, movies and more. Supported formats include AAC, AIFF, Apple Lossless, Dolby TrueHD, DSD (11.2, 5.6 or 2.8 MHz), FLAC, LPCM, MP3, OggVorbis, WAV and WMA. 


The Best Build and Flexibility

Integra components are not just built- they are substantially and purposely overbuilt. As a Research Series unit, exceptional design and rigid construction techniques are used throughout- high-quality anti-resonant aluminum faceplate, extra internal bracing, copper screws, premium input and output connectors, gold plated RCA terminals, oversized detachable AC cord, reinforced steel chassis, massive feet, and single-piece extruded aluminum heat sinks- just to name a few.


Hi-Resolution Audio Powerhouse

Hear your music library as never before. High-Resolution means studio quality sound recording to extract additional elements, nuances and details far beyond the capabilities of standard CD to virtually put you in the room with your favorite musician. Integra makes it incredibly easy to access and enjoy audio files mastered in high-resolution (up to 192kHz/24-bit) stored on a computer, media server, network-attached storage (NAS) or USB thumb drive with zero loss in audio quality. Virtually every hi-resolution and lossless format is supported- 2.8 or 5.6 MHz DSD, Dolby® TrueHD as well as gapless playback of FLAC, WAV, ALAC, AAC, AIFF and WMA files. Three Sharc 32-Bit DSP's operate at speeds greater than 6 billion operations per second - combined with award winning AKM 32-bit differential Audio DACs (up to 768k / 32-bit) provide more than enough power to accurately and easily handle almost any high resolution audio format in the market today.


Zone 2 and 3 Digital Audio

The DRC-R1.1 features an overabundance of Zone 2 and 3 capabilities. Using high-quality digital-to-analog conversion- internal digital Network audio (including all network streaming services), as well as external sources connected via HDMI, Coax and Toslink (2-ch PCM only) are available in Zone 2 and 3- making it easy to share your favorite tunes throughout the house. Available HDMI matrix switching for Zone 2 allows you to do things like watch/listen to your favorite Blu-ray disc movie in the Main Zone while simultaneously watching/listening to the Cable or Satellite box in Zone 2. Use the free Integra Control Pro app to fully control both Zone 2 and 3 functions from your fingertips. The DRC-R1.1 has you covered with plenty of flexibility and ease-of-use.


Integra's Original Approach to Room Correction

AccuEQ conducts two measurements- one to set the level, the other to set the distance and crossover for ALL speakers, including the subwoofer. In the second round of measurements, your room?s sonic characteristics are evaluated. Using this information, AccuEQ is able to prevent standing waves from forming by adjusting frequency response. 

Choose to include or bypass EQ measurement for front left and right speakers, and choose to automatically or manually set the EQ. Further, you can save your own manual EQ settings into three available presets. 

The new AccuReflex technology aligns the phase of upfiring "height" speakers with the sound coming directly from your other speakers. Any delay is resolved so that everything arrives at your ears at the same time. The result is cohesive reproduction of object-based soundtracks. 


Perfect for Custom Installation

You can't say integration without Integra. Integra products are designed and engineered to meet the demands of custom audio/video systems installers. The DRC-R1.1 includes system integration connectivity such as RS232 and IP control with support for 2-way communication with 3rd party home automation systems. A pair of infrared (IR) inputs and an IR output make for a clean, reliable installation and allow pass-through of IR signals to control other devices connected to the DRC-R1.1, such as a TV or Blu-ray player. Three fully programmable 12 volt triggers can be used to raise/lower a projection screen, power on/off an external amplifier and open/close the drapes all with the touch of a button! Optional rack mount kits for all full size models provide a clean, finished look when installed in racks and cabinets. Integra works closely with control systems partners such as Savant, Crestron, URC, RTI, and Ihiji and supports Control4 Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) and AMX Device Discovery for simplified system integration.


App Control

The Integra Control Pro app for iOS, Android, and Kindle devices is a convenient way to control your home entertainment from anywhere within wireless range. The app has a clear graphical interface to control playback, adjust settings and handle content across multiple zones. The app serves hi-res, lossless, and compressed audio files (including 192 kHz/24-bit FLAC, DSD, Apple Lossless, Dolby® TrueHD and more) to the DRC-R1.1 from your mobile devices, and gives it stunning sound.
