Processor upgrade from Integra 9.8?

With arrival of new SOTA TV, will be going from 99% 2-channel to 85%. For 3-d capability, my question is whether to upgrade to Integra DHC-80.3/Onkyo PR-SC5508 or to go higher up the chain. Not sure what, if anything, I will be giving up by purchasing at the $2K price point vs $5K, other than, of course, an extra $3K of expense. Also have an Oppo BDP-95 on the way for Blue-Ray/3D. Will be incorporating front speakers, preamp and amps from 2-channel into the HT system.

Thanks for any help.
Kal, the Integra Research RDC-7.1 was a surround pre-processor that was modular in design. One could order the unit based on which features chosen and a card with those features plugged in. An example was having an extra set of 7.1 inputs. It was designed with BAT and had the Apogee technology from its Ben unit for lowing of jitter.
I am familiar with it, on paper, because I was considering getting one. Never heard one.
I believe it sounds very good, but I don't know how it stacks up against a Bel Canto or Parasound P7, or even a McCormack. The Integra is made by a mass consumer product company as opposed to the above. I realize that the Integras, Panasonic, and other similiar situated companies once in awhile come out with awesome products then lapse back to mediocrity.
Since you've already got a McCormack piece, I would pick up the MAP-1, used, here to try. You also might try giving Steve a call - he's always been very proactive in helping owners of his gear.
NewsFlash - Just discovered the DACs in the 9.8 are only 192/24, while those in the 80.2 and 80.3 are 192/32. Unfortunately, that is enough of a difference for me to reconsider upgrading now, rather than later. So much for my best laid plans....
