Integra DTR-50.2 A/V Receiver Video Test Bench
Video Test Bench
The Integra’s digital processing (HDMI in to HDMI out) is good, apart from a visible rolloff in the chroma resolution at the highest test burst. The latter was more obvious on the Analog Chroma resolution test—too much there to rise above a failing grade. Overall, the Integra’s Digital video processing is above average based on our bench tests, and the tapering off of the chroma resolution should not produce any visible degradation of normal program material.
As with most AVRs and surround processors we test, the analog configuration—that is, not analog in to analog out but rather cross-converting a component input to an HDMI output—should really be used only for noncritical sources. For example, THX doesn’t certify for cross-conversion and does not recommend using it.—TJN
