Today Onkyo has announced 2 of their new A/V receivers for the year, the TX-RZ730 and TX-RZ830, both of which are 9.2-ch A/V receivers with 175 W/Ch and 180 W/Ch respectively.
The two THX Certified receivers deliver cinema-reference sound in rooms of up to 57 m3. Both are equipped with 11.2-multichannel pre-outs and processing to enable Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X® soundtrack reproduction though speaker layouts of up to 7.2.4-ch (with outboard stereo amp).
The TX-RZ730 and TX-RZ830 feature AccuEQ Advance room acoustic calibration technology. As well as setting parameters such as speaker distance, SP level, and crossover, AccuEQ Advance uses multi-point measurement to eliminate standing waves from the listening space. The technology also detects and compensates for subtle background noise, such as the hum of an HVAC, to ensure accurate equalization. AccuReflex technology aligns the phase of directional and non-directional sounds for comfortable playback through Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker systems.
Both receivers feature Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X upmixing solutions. These cross-compatible technologies remap legacy soundtracks commonly encoded on DVD, Blu-ray Disc™, and streaming video, unbinding the sound from the channel bed for spatial playback through any speaker layout to create a highly realistic listening environment.
Support for network multi-room audio is comprehensive. Chromecast built-in makes life easy, allowing users to stream any music from Chromecast-enabled apps for iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac and Windows PC, or Chromebook. Playback can be controlled by voice with a smart speaker featuring the Google Assistant, such as Google Home.
DTS Play-Fi enables high-quality music playback from online services, media servers, and mobile devices to any number of compatible products using Onkyo Music Control App*2. DTS Play-Fi technology can synchronize music in every room and is easily used by any family member.
You can also share audio from network sources using FlareConnect 3. The Onkyo Music app allows access to Amazon Music TIDAL, TuneIn, Deezer, and Spotify.
Tje TX-RZ730 and TX-RZ830 are ready for the latest premium content with HDMI® pass-through of HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), and Dolby Vision™ formats as well as 4K/60p, BT.2020, 4:4:4, 24-bit, and HDCP 2.2-protected video. Six rear HDMI inputs, Main Out, Zone 2 Out (Sub Out on the TX-RZ730), and a front HDMI input*7 are included on both models.
