Onkyo Launches New THX-certified AVRS

Onkyo has debuted the 7.2-Channel TX-RZ710 and TX-RZ810 network AV receivers ideal for audiophiles.

Featuring custom circuit design and frequency reproduction as low as 5Hz, the receivers are THX Select2 Plus-certified for Theatre Reference Performance, meaning that the volume can be set to deliver the same sound-pressure level experienced in a multiplex cinema, and are ready to decode Dolby Atmos and DTS:X* surround formats. 

The TX-RZ810 benefits from separate analogue amplification and digital processing blocks as well as solid copper bus bars to limit interference. Non-phase-shift amp circuits shift the frequency roll-off point higher than the listening level, and combined with new AccuReflex technology — part of an improved AccuEQ room calibration suite — ensures that stereo and object-based surround-sound formats are reproduced with breathtaking clarity.

Video connectivity features include eight HDMI inputs and two outputs, one for the main display and one for a TV in Zone 2, allowing 4K/60Hz video (supporting High Dynamic Range, 4:4:4 colour space, and HDCP 2.2) to be shared in two rooms.

Both receivers can distribute entertainment across the home, with FireConnect* wireless technology by Blackfire Research mirroring analogue and digital audio on a compatible wireless speaker. Dedicated Powered Zone 2 speaker outputs with Zone 2 DAC, Zone 3 line-out (TX-RZ810 only), RS-232C, and 12v triggers for integrated home automation systems all enhance multi-room capabilities, while the TX-RZ810’s 7.2 multichannel pre-outs add flexibility for audiophiles looking to customise their AV setup further.

As well as being ready for next-generation UltraHD movies, users can stream almost any audio content from mobile devices and laptops via Google Cast, AirPlay, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth to these receivers and share it to other zones, whether it be network content such as podcasts, Spotify, TIDAL, and Hi-Res Audio, or the traditional sounds of FM/AM radio, cassette, and vinyl records.

Both AVRs will be available in late April in black or silver.
