Long story short - wife says "no" to Home Theatre....we dont NEED it apparently and TBH we don't actually watch many movies, mainly listen to music so she may have a point this time :)

I've been running in my office since selling off some of my Rotel gear and now want to trade up to some decent Active PA speakers. This system would make an excellent HT starter package - just needs a dialogue speaker or would make a fantastic bach system using the rears on the powered second zone.

Amplifier: Integra DTR-7.8 7.1 7x130w 8ohm 3 Zone THX Ultra 2 Certified. One zone is powered, the other you can connect another power amp. Can also bi-amp the front channels and still run 5.1. 3x HDMI switching, Dolby DTS Master Dolby True HD HDMI Pass through Original learnable remote. A monster amp built like a tank with big sound and great review to match.

DVD Player: Integra DPS-5.5 Progressive Scan DVD player, there are two analog audio outputs on the Integra DPS 5.5 as well as one optical and one coaxial digital output. S-Video output and two composite outputs are on this model. There are RCA and BNC component outputs. The video DAC is 54 MHz/10-bit and the audio DAC is 192 kHz/24-bit on the DVD player. This is a single-disc progressive scan DVD player. The Integra DVD player has MP3 playback as well as WMA CDs. Playback formats include DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW

Front Speakers: Acoustic Energy AE109 floor standers in Rosewood, spiked bi-wireable.
Rear Speakers: Acoustic Energy AE100 book shelfs in black, stands, bi-wireable.

For those who don't know Integra gear it is the high end custom division of Onkyo.

Offers or swap/partial trade for pair JBL EON 515/515XT or similar Active PA Speaker.

Gear is in Hawkes Bay could deliver Palmy, Taupo, Hamilton, Auckland or somewhere in-between.
