Features

The model delivers power of 200 watts per channel (6 ohms). The receiver has passed THX certification and has the appropriate sound modes, along with traditional proprietary digital processing modes. It is possible to play "clear" sound in non-processing mode - Pure Audio. There is a Music Optimizer algorithm, enhanced bass mode and optimized bass mode - PM Bass. Like all Onkyo receivers, the TX-RZ920 has an extended set of interfaces. It has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DLNA technology and the long-awaited new AirPlay.

Design and build

The AV receiver received a new sleek design. The center of its aluminum facade is occupied by a display, under which there is a lid that hides the controls. The device uses a manually wound toroidal transformer, audiophile capacitors and high-current discrete amplifiers, which allow reaching the lower limit of the frequency response of 5 Hz. The AV receiver is equipped with a 32-bit DSP, supports Dolby Atmos up to 5.1.2-channel configuration, as well as the DTS: X format, which allows the use of additional ceiling speakers. Each Onkyo TX-RZ920 channel has an AK4458 DAC (32 bit / 384 kHz), and VLSC technology is used to eliminate noise caused by clock pulses.

Rear panel inputs: 7 HDMI ports (with 4K support), MM phono input, 2 coaxial / 3 optical, USB, Ethernet port, etc. Outputs: 2 x HDMI (one for zone 2), 7.2-channel (RCA) ), two RCA for additional zones and others. There are 11 pairs of screw terminals, two of which can be used for zones 2 and 3. You can control the receiver through the remote control or application for devices with Android and iOS.

Setup

This “smart” receiver is able to calibrate the sound in accordance with the user's preferences and the characteristics of the room where the speaker is installed (software product: AccuEQ).

Pros and Cons

Pros

Cons

  • I wish the design was a bit more thoughtful
