17th May 2018
New out are the Onkyo 9.2 channel receivers that offer 175W per channel and 180W per channel, respectively
These THX-Certified Select A/V Onkyo receivers 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 7.2.4ch (with an outboard stereo amp).
Dynamic Audio Amplification employs a custom transformer and large customised block capacitors. Non-phase-shift circuit topology on discrete wideband amplifiers is included while patented VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) on Front L/R channels is featured.
Both receivers feature Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X upmixing solutions. These cross-compatible technologies re-map legacy soundtracks commonly encoded on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and streaming video.
Chromecast is built-in. Playback can be controlled by voice with a smart speaker featuring the Google Assistant, such as Google Home.
DTS Play-Fi technology is there too using the Onkyo Music Control App.
Proprietary FlareConnect technology shares audio from network sources and external audio inputs between compatible components.
Amazon Music can be accessed via the Onkyo Music Control App, while TIDAL, TuneIn, Deezer, and Spotify are enabled with Onkyo Controller. Onkyo Controller presents local and network audio for streaming together with remote-control functionality. The receivers also include Bluetooth wireless technology. AirPlay network audio streaming technology is built in too.
You also get a phono amplifier while both support Hi-Res Audio via network and USB storage devices. The TX-RZ730 plays DSD5.6 MHz/2.8 MHz while the TX-RZ830 supports direct playback of DSD11.2 MHz files. Both support 24bit audio up to 192kHz in FLAC, WAV (RIFF), AIFF, and ALAC formats.
On the video side, the TX-RZ730 and TX-RZ830 include HDMI pass-through of HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and Dolby Vision formats as well as 4K/60p, BT.2020, 4:4:4, 24bit, and HDCP 2.2-protected video.
