Onkyo TX-RZ630 review

Since the power of the amplifier is one of the main characteristics that pay attention, considered in this Pioneer VSX-LX303 versus Onkyo TX-RZ630, the TX-RZ630 delivers 90 W/channel which is clearly less than the VSX-LX303 (170 W/channel). The device works with 5.2.4 mode with Dolby Atmos and DTS: X formats. The model is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules, works with AirPlay, Chromecast, and FlareConnect, and can independently connect to popular streaming services. Also, thanks to a smartphone app, it is possible to use Amazon Music. It is possible to manage all functions via voice assistant Google Assistant.
