TX-RZ800 and RZ900 - new receivers from Onkyo`s upper middle class

Written by

Onkyo follows up the previously released AV receivers in the Budget- and  lower middle class with two receivers in the upper midrange. Needless to say, the new models are supporting both Dolby Atmos and DTS: X.


Onkyo has delivered the news this spring in several phases, and now it has happened in the upper midrange. We have previously announced that Onkyo has equipped receivers surprisingly far down in price classes with new new 3D sound formats, as it comes simply as no surprise that the descendants after TX-NR838 are equipped with both Dolby Atmos and DTS: X. But there are other surprises on board.

Model designation of the two new models TX-RZ800 and RZ900 TX testify a new line from Onkyo. And also design has new lines. We've seen the trend before the budget models, and in the two latest announced AV-receivers it is even more obvious that the acquisition of Pioneer has also borne fruits in terms of design.



Usually one may see effects on the details of equipment level also in two neighboring models in the model-line, but this is hard to spot in TX-RZ800 / 900's case. They are both very well equipped and has what it takes on the network and decoding side. The amplifiers are still limited to 7 channels, with TX-RZ800 is the first model that offers 7.1 pre-out, as TX-NR838 was before.

It is in the amplifier the more distinct differences emerge between these two models. In addition to the TX-RZ-900 has slightly more power than the smaller brother RZ800, it also has a more costly power supply, in addition to having a better amplifier design for the front channels. Perhaps an interesting candidate for AV enthusiasts who play a lot of music in stereo? Also speaker terminals are more costly on the largest of these two models.
