Onkyo TX-RZ50 - High-end 9.2 channel receiver with DIRAC Live
The latest generation of AV receivers from Onkyo is ready to occupy your living room or home cinema. We find four new models in Onkyo's line-up, all of which are equipped with the latest technologies to give you the ultimate sound and picture experience. This means that, among other things, we find support for 8K@60Hz and 4K@120Hz, as well as HDR, Dolby Vision, eARC and everything else that the latest HDMI 2.1 standard has to offer. In addition, the TX-NR7100 and TX-RZ50 also support IMAX Enhanced mode, which is not available on the models below. The top model TX-RZ50 is also THX certified and offers 11.2 channel processing, despite being "only" a 9.2 channel receiver.
The TX-RZ50 is the absolute top model of the new receivers from Onkyo, and offers a 9.2 channel receiver with an impressive 250 watts per channel in 6 Ohm (1 channel driven) For pure stereo listening, the TX-RZ50 offers 2x120 powerful watts at 8 Ohm, which is an upgrade compared to all the smaller models, and enough power for even large floor speakers. By having as many as nine channels, it means that you have the option of a serious Dolby Atmos setup with 5.2.4 - or even up to 7.2.4 thanks to 11.2 channel processing (requires an external power amplifier). Since we are dealing with a state-of-the-art receiver, this naturally also means that we will find all the latest streaming functions, such as Spotify Connect, Airplay 2, TIDAL, Roon and more. There is also an advanced Bluetooth chip built into the TX-RZ50, which has aptX HD support, for simple streaming of your music without being connected to a network.
As something new, the updated receivers from Onkyo also offer what they call "Klipsch Optimize Mode". In all its simplicity, this means that you can easily adjust the sound and optimize it if you use the Klipsch Reference or Reference Premiere speakers - brilliant. Where the two smallest models in the series have to "make do" with Onkyo's AccuEQ room correction, the TX-RZ50 model offers full support for DIRAC LIVE calibration, which is without comparison one of the best solutions on the market within sound calibration/room correction. Support for smart control via Google Home, Amazon Alexa, dedicated HDMI output for zone 2 and app control are also just some of the many smart features that the TX-RZ50 has up its sleeve, among other things. A genuine high-end home theater receiver that must be experienced!
The first step towards pure audio at Onkyo, takes us all the way back to September 1946, when the company was founded under the name "Osaka Denki ONKYO KK" and started producing pick-ups for turntables, which cost almost an entire month's salary for a Japanese at the time.
Throughout, Onkyo has been on the notes from the very beginning. Their deep basic knowledge as well as seniority is clearly seen and heard on the products available in the market today.
