From the finest details, from copper screws used to lock modular circuitry blocks to a double-skinned insulated frame, to floating 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 Research Series DRC-R1.1 sits at the pinnacle of THX® Certified Ultra™ home entertainment design.
THX® Certified Ultra™ for Reference-Level Sound

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.
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.
