About the Integra DTM-7
A stereo receiver for music and movies
A stereo receiver for music and movies
I like a receiver that packs a lot of high-performance connectivity into one component. The Integra DTM-7 has just about every input source covered: it offers up to 40 AM/FM presets, wired connections for music and video devices, and wireless connectivity for a plethora of streaming music sources.
Plenty of wired connections
This receiver offers four 4K-ready HDMI inputs for video sources, and three digital audio inputs: two optical and one coaxial. It has plenty of connections for your analog components, too. There are three stereo RCA inputs for CD players, tape decks, cable boxes, and more. There's even a dedicated phono stage input if you're a vinyl-lover like me.
You can connect up to two pairs of speakers in an A/B configuration, and of course, there's a subwoofer output, because what's music without solid bass?
The receiver's rear-panel USB input (500 milliamps) can accomodate a flash drive full of music. The front-panel USB (1 amp) has enough juice to play music from a separate hard drive.
Wireless streaming convenience
Just about everyone has their favorite online music service, and a preferred method of streaming. The DTM-7 is absolutely loaded with options: it has built-in dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Apple Airplay®, and Chromecast. It supports popular streaming platforms like Spotify®, Pandora®, Deezer, TIDAL, and more. And it's compatible with Sonos and DTS Play-Fi®, so you can integrate it into your wireless multi-room system.
Expand to additional zones
The DTM-7 is designed to work as part of a multi-zone system. On the back, you'll find a line output that lets you connect to an additional amp to create a second zone. The receiver offers advanced power and remote control options so you can command your entire system from the comfort of your favorite chair.
Built to last
This receiver is designed to work hard, and smart. It features fully discrete output stage circuitry, a large power supply, and two high-current capacitors inside an anti-vibration chassis. A non-phase-shift amp design produces stunningly realistic sound imaging. Long story short: you'll enjoy more musical detail with little or no noise.

Integra DTM-7 reviews
I bought this unit at Crutchfield because of their 60-day, no reasons needed return policy (I will be returning it) and because of their knowledgeable staff of consultants. Even though this product is user-friendly and lists the volume in pluses rather than minuses, the sound to my ear is too bright and a little lacking in bass. I had to put the bass at +3, which is very unusual for me as my speakers have 8" woofers. I also had to tone down the treble to -6. The sound is clear but devoid of warmth. I also auditioned the Integra DTM-6, (which sounds exactly like this unit does) and the difference in power is only slight. It has HDMI capability, though that is not important for me. I am returning the unit because it alters the sound of women's voices. It gives them a silvery hue which isn't actually there. It makes Joan Sutherland sound like Kathleen Battle and Montserrat Caballe sound like Beverly Sills!
Pros: HDMI capability. More than enough power.
Cons: Sound is too bright. It alters the sound of women's voices.

This receiver is perfect if you want to listen to high resolution discs (SACD, DVD-Audio, Blu-ray audio) in stereo. Very few stereo receivers (and no stereo integrated amplifiers) have HDMI inputs, but this one does. There's an array of other inputs, including optical, coax & RCA, one set of which is for a turntable for the noveau luddites. It's got plenty of power to drive a set of 8 Ohm speakers. Also, it has good old fashioned knobs to adjust the bass, treble & balance. (It also does AM/FM, Bluetooth and a lot of Network stuff, should you care.) I'm using mine with a Cambridge Audio CXUHD 4K UHD Universal Blu-ray player. If you're fed up with your overly complicated surround receiver, check the DTM-7 out.
Pros: - Stereo - HDMI inputs - subwoofer output - beefy (100 watts per channel) - bass/treble/balance knobs
Cons: - no HDCD decoding

High Current Amplification: The Integra DTM-7 combines accurate, noise-free signal processing with high-current power for dynamic speaker control. The result is pure, rich and authentic sound. Integra's dynamic audio amplification delivers 100 watts per channel (8 Ohms, 20-20kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 Channels Driven) with 30 amps of high instantaneous current capability.
- Non-Phase-Shift Amp Design: The receiver employs a Non-Phase-Shift amp design which prevents phase shift by pushing the roll-off point higher than the listening-level frequency. This creates a well-focuses and realistic audio image.
- Massive High Power Transformer: The Massive Power Transformer delivers large amounts of power necessary for reproducing the wide dynamics of movie soundtracks and the detail and clarity of your music.
384kHz/32-Bit DAC: The Integra DTM-7 utilizes a premium quality 384kHz/32-bit digital-to-analog converter (AKM4438) from AKM that features unique low-distortion technologies to further ensure effortless high-quality playback and excellent sound quality.
Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC): The DTM-7 utilizes Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) to reassemble the audio signal in its original form following processing. Unlike conventional filters, VLSC removes pulse noise generated in D/A conversion, allowing the sound wave to be reproduced with extremely high fidelity for a smooth analog signal. The signal's data is converted between sampling points and joined with analog vectors in real time to produce a smooth output wave form. The result is a virtually noiseless, smooth, analog signal that brings out even the most subtle of nuances in music sources.
Audio Settings: The Integra DTM-7 stereo receiver provides various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.
- Music Optimizer: The Music Optimizer function enhances the sound quality of compressed music files. The Music Optimizer function only works with PCM digital audio input signals with a sampling rate below 48kHz, analog input signals, and Bluetooth audio.
- Tone Controls: You can independently adjust the Bass (90Hz) and Treble (7.5kHz) of the receiver from -10 to +10 dB.
- Double Bass: You can also activate the Double Bass function in order to boost bass output even more by feeding bass sounds to the stereo speakers and powered subwoofer.
- Direct Mode: In Direct mode, the receiver outputs pure sound as it was intended by bypassing the tone control circuits during playback.
Analog & Digital Audio Inputs: The Integra DTM-7 stereo Receiver is outfitted with both analog & digital audio inputs.
- Analog Inputs + Phono (MM): There are four stereo RCA inputs, including a Phono (MM) input with ground terminal.
- Digital Inputs: The Integra stereo receiver features three digital audio inputs. There are two optical (toslink) digital inputs and one coaxial (RCA) digital input. The receiver's digital inputs support 2ch PCM audio signals only. Supported sampling rates include 32kHz, 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, and 96kHz; with a bit-depth of 16-bit, 20-bit, or 24-bit. You can set the receiver to automatically turn on when it senses an audio signal from the Optical 1 digital input.
Note: The receiver also features 4 HDMI inputs which support up to 2 PCM @ 24-bit/192kHz and 2ch DSD up to 5.6Mhz. Not compatible with Dolby Digital, DTS, or other multichannel audio formats.
Analog Audio Outputs: The Integra DTM-7 is outfitted with the following analog audio outputs. All the analog output jacks are gold-plated for excellent signal transfer.
- Binding-Post A/B Speaker Terminals: There are binding-post terminals for the A/B speaker terminals. The binding post terminals will accept bare-wire, pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). You can use 4Ω to 16Ω loudspeakers when only connect Speakers A. When connecting both Speakers A and B, use 8Ω to 16Ω loudspeakers.
- Subwoofer Outputs: The receiver is fitted with a mono-subwoofer output for the Main Zone and Zone 2 to connect powered subs for extra bass in those zones.
- Headphones: When headphones are plugged into the full-size 1/4" jack on the front panel, the main speakers are automatically muted.
Impedance Switch: If you're using only one of the speaker sets (A or B), choose the 4Ω setting if each speaker's impedance is 4Ω to less than 6Ω, or choose the 6Ω setting if each speaker's impedance is 6Ω or more. If you're using both of the speaker sets (A & B), choose the 4Ω setting if each speaker's impedance is 8 to 16Ω.
Volume Setup: The Integra stereo receiver provides the following volume settings.
- IntelliVolume: With IntelliVolume, you can set the input level for each input (+/-12dB) selector individually. This is useful if one of your source components is louder or quieter than the others. This function does not work in Zone 2.
- Maximum Volume: Use this feature to set the receiver's maximum volume level in the Main Zone and Zone 2. This feature is useful to avoid turning the volume too loud by mistake. You can set the Max Volume from 50-99 (max), or Off (default value).
- Power On Volume: Use this feature to set the volume level when the power is turned on in the Maine Zone and Zone 2.. You can choose between Last (same as the volume when the unit was turned off), Min (0.5), Custom (0.5-99.5), or Max (99.5).
- Headphone Level: With this setting, you can specify the headphone volume (+/-12dB) relative to the main volume. This is useful if there's a volume difference between your speakers and your headphones.
HDMI 2.0b: The Integra DTM-7 has four HDMI 2.0b inputs and one HDMI (ARC) 2.0b output. Thanks to the latest HDMI 2.0b specification, the receiver can support 4K/60 Hz Ultra-HD video, HDCP 2.2 compatibility, High Dynamic Range (HDR), 4:4:4 color sub-sampling, and BT.2020 Wide Color Gamut.
- 4K/60Hz: The DTM-7 supports up to 4K (3840x2160 pixels) video @ 60 frames per second on all of its HDMI inputs and outputs. It will also pass a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p video signals via HDMI
- HDCP 2.2: The receivers HDMI inputs and HDMI monitor output support HDCP 2.2, which fully complies with the latest copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission.
- 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: The receiver's HDMI inputs and HDMI monitor output support RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2, and YCbCr 4:2:0 color subsampling (@ 60Hz or 50Hz). With 4:4:4 color subsampling, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate; resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
- Wide Color Gamut (BT.2020): The BT.2020 color standard delivers a much wider color gamut and represents about 75% of the total visual color spectrum, while the current Rec. 709 color standard selected as the color space for HDTVs and early generation 4K Ultra HDTVs covers only 35% of the total visual color spectrum.
Note: Use a premium high-speed 18Gbps HDMI cable for the best 4K/HDR performance.
HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR (High Dynamic Range) video provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. HDR reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, creating greater contrast. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. This receiver supports three HDR formats - HDR 10, HLG, & Dolby Vision.
- HDR 10: HDR 10 is an open standard and currently the most popular HDR format on the market. It supports 10-bit color and 1,000 nits. It uses static metadata at the start of a movie to tell the receiver and your TV that the video content is encoded using HDR.
- HLG: HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) is primarily designed for live video feed and over-the-air broadcasts. It uses no pre-encoded metadata and is backwards compatible with SDR. HLG's native compatibility allows much of today's existing SDR infrastructure to be re-used for HDR in the future.
- Dolby Vision: Unlike HDR 10 which contains static metadata and HLG which uses no metadata, Dolby Vision utilizes dynamic metadata which adjusts brightness, color, and contrast automatically for each scene. Dynamic metadata carries information that maps every image to your TV's display capabilities, so you see more of what the content creator intended. Dolby Vision supports 12-bit color and 10,000 nits.
Other HDMI Features: The DTM-7 stereo receiver's HDMI connectivity also offers ARC (Audio Return Channel), 3D video pass-through, Deep Color & x.v. Color support, as well as an auto LipSync function.
- ARC (Audio Return Channel): The receiver's HDMI output features ARC (Audio Return Channel). This feature allows audio to be sent from your compatible HDTV to your receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your HDTV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television.
- Auto Lip-Sync: The Lip-Sync function can automatically synchronize HDMI audio and video (for any HDMI jack) that has gotten out of sync due to the complex digital video processing being performed by your HDMI-compatible TV. With HDMI Lip-Sync, the audio delay required to synchronize the audio and video is calculated and applied automatically by the stereo receiver. You can also manually correct the audio delay from 0 (no delay) to 400 milliseconds; in 10 millisecond steps.
- 3D-Ready: All HDMI jacks will accept 3D video from your 3D-ready Blu-ray player and output the video signal in 3D to your 3D-ready flat-panel television.
- Deep Color & x.v.Color Support: The stereo receiver supports Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture
HDMI Standby Through: When enabling the HDMI Standby Through function, regardless of whether the stereo receiver is "Off" or in "Standby", both audio/video streams from an HDMI input will be output to your television, via the receiver HDMI monitor output. You can select between three HDMI Through modes.
- Auto: Detects the signal and automatically selects the input sources.
- Source: Selects the HDMI input source for which the HDMI Through function in enabled.
- Last: The HDMI Through function is activated on the input source selected at the time of setting the stereo receiver to the "standby" mode.
Video Select: It is possible to play audio and video from different sources. For example, you can play audio via Bluetooth and video from your BD/DVD player. This function is only effective when an input with audio only (Network, Bluetooth, or Tuner) has been selected initially.
Wired or Wireless Network Connection: The Integra DTM-7 stereo receiver supports a wired Ethernet (RJ-45) or wireless WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n; 2.4/5GHz) network connection.
