Features

The Onkyo TX-RZ820 7.2 Channel AV Receiver is THX Select certified to guarantee reference sound quality comparable to a sound in a commercial movie theater. The presence of a 32-bit signal processor allows Onkyo TX-RZ820 to decode Dolby Atmos formats in 5.2.2-channel configuration and DTS: X. DTS Neural: X and Dolby Surround codecs are supported for converting the sound of conventional multi-channel formats to object-oriented three-dimensional sound. The power is 180 W / channel at 6 Ohms.

Design and build

The design involves discrete amplifiers with dynamic amplification technology, which produce an instant large current and can easily swing large full-range speakers. As a result, excellent transient characteristics and a powerful dynamic sound supply in a wide range of frequencies from 5 Hz to 100 kHz are provided. Technology that prevents phase displacement is also used. The model uses modern AK4458 DACs and VLSC technology that eliminates impulse noise. Speakers can be calibrated by AccuEQ, and AccuReflex technology ensures phase compatibility of speakers for Dolby Atmos with other speakers.
