Bottom Line:   
this is a nice turntable for it's price, and you can make it even nicer if you'll follow these steps:
1. drop from your window the interconnect that comes with
the turntable and replace it with "coincident". you'll be shocked! if you don't have the money (300$), buy a "clotz"
wire (around 1$ for 1 M.)AND WELD TO IT "neutriks" plugs (around 4-5 $ for each), so that the interconect will cost you around 20-25$. i assure you that it's better than every interconnect up to 200$, and in some respects it even surpass more expensive interconnects.
2. since the balance weight is "dancing" on the rear arm, take it out,and put "isolerband" round the rear arm.
3. the same with the spikes, they are "dancing" too
(though less than the weight). take them out and put "isolerband" round the screws.

Bottom Line:   
Having emirated to Sydney system-less, I auditioned a few players before coming to the 6.9, all more expensive. Of these, the Perspective was the best, but I had an instant "no" to its sound - similar to that when hearing a Gyrodeck at a show a few years ago, so I blame the perspex...
Most others were either edgy (Rega 3) or smooth to the point of boredom (Thorens decks, Dual 505/4 - I remember the original as better - I'd even classify the Rega 25 as having a tendency in this direction).
The 6.9 managed the same level of detail as the Perspective, with a more natural if slightly bright sound (to my ears) and excellent timing/rhythm; a tunefulness approaching that of a Sondek with good ancillaries. Imaging is solid, something I have always associated with more expensive units. I've certainly found more on my records than with the Axis, my previous unit, particularly the timbre of different accoustic instruments, and the placement of instruments in different baroque ensembles. Bass may be a touch light for rock/reggae listeners but the difference between bass instruments and players is more obvious than with many decks, and I'd include the Sondek (well, the Sondek circa 1987) in that.
I've found two problems. One is the tonearm cueing; the arm sometimes jumps when I first move the cueing arm down, which is disconcerting. The second is surface noise, which is more intrusive than I remember from the Axis or the Sondek. This may be down to VTA, which is adjustable, or the Goldring 1042 cartridge I'm using. Or it may be the effect of a period of being CD-only. It's still listenable, even with very bad records.

In short, this is a bargain. At the price, its real rivals are good second hand examples of much more expensive decks. If you want new, and can still get a 6.9 where you live, go out and listen!

INTEGRA DTR 6.9, brief review

Put all of the unemployed to work coming up with "new" codecs, soundfields, proccessing modes, gimmicks of various kinds, and then cram them into the latest receivers. My "new Integra " is discontinued, but a great many similarities sti ... Read More »

Integra Dtr 6.9

After the finaces of an audio only system just not workin out, I purchased a demo Integra 6.9. Yeah, I know, its a rebadged Onkyo, but I think they put a little extra intro the INTEGRAS, they are worth the extra dough on style points alone. Lots of kinks to work out, but the important thing i ... Read More »
