Integra Factory Refurbished

Buying a Integra Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it’s repackaged with accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Integra product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 2 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Integra repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 800-225-1946)

Integra, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and can’t be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can’t provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Integra certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Integra Factory Refurbished" product.

Most units are Cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10). Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we can’t provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.

Integra DHC-80.3 preamp/processor

5 INTEGRA DHC-80.3 9.2-Ch THX Networking A/V Preamp/Processor
Reviewer: from Florida
Integra DHC-80.3 preamp/processor: $2600 $$$ 
Though similar in appearance to Integra’s DTC-9.8 and its successors, the DHC-80.2 preamplifier-processor adds a host of features, including: HDMI v1.4 (eight inputs, two outputs, Audio Return Channel and 3D), two USB inputs, two subwoofer outputs, a Universal Port for an iPod dock or HDRadio tuner module, network connectivity, and the latest versions of Audyssey MultEQ XT32, Dynamic EQ, and Dynamic Volume. Compared to the DTC-9.8, the DHC-80.2 had a more dynamic, better-balanced sound, with a fuller midrange and improved transparency. “The Integra DHC-80.2 redefines value in a multichannel preamplifier-processor for the serious music lover or home-theater fan,” said KR. Early production samples suffered from an incorrect implementation of Audyssey’s MultEQ Pro room correction software, resulting in a glassy midrange and dull treble; a later firmware update corrected the problem and produced smooth high frequencies and a balanced overall response. Current 80.3 version added new video circuitry and additional features.

Great Sounding Pre

5 INTEGRA DHC-80.3 9.2-Ch THX Networking A/V Preamp/Processor
Reviewer: from San Francisco
I went for the factory refurb'd unit and I'm happy. I honestly could not tell the unit was a refurbished unit. The packaging looked factory fresh, and so far the sound is great from this beast. I am coming from an old Sony TAE-9000ES, which I loved. I like the sound of this unit more. The TI IC ecosystem is solid, sonically, through my Meridian M60's, M33's, and M60C. The Revenant sounds so awesome and the soundstage is very detailed. The mic calibration worked great on the first shot and I haven't had to play with it.

Very happy.
