Monumental Sound & Vision Delivered Without Comprise
Upgrades to the TX-RZ820 Network A/V Receiver—our THX® Certified Select™ 7.2-channel flagship—result in genuinely spectacular sonic performance. Dynamic Audio Amplification delivers instantaneous high-current power to full-scale speakers for thrilling energy and lifelike transient response across a wide 5 Hz–100 kHz spectrum. VLSC™ on all channels and non-phase-shift circuitry clarify details floating in three-dimensional space.
Multi-room network and analog audio, including streaming over Chromecast built-in* and DTS Play-Fi®*, are served to NCP-302 wireless speakers via FireConnect™ powered by Blackfire. Powered and pre-/line audio distribution adds app-controllable audio in up to three zones simultaneously. Decoding Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™, the receiver also supports Dolby Vision™, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), and BT.2020 video pass-through, and is set up for custom installs. Simply, it’s the no-compromises 7.2-channel powerhouse you’ve been waiting for.
* Enabled with a future firmware update.
Introducing the RZ Series
Our premium RZ Series A/V receivers deliver a significant boost to the dynamism, detail, and accuracy of music and movie soundtracks for a listening experience that packs deep emotional impact. The TX-RZ820 features quality components, such as large custom capacitors, to provide high instantaneous current for fast transients and wideband frequency response down to 5 Hz. Discrete non-phase-shift amp circuits clearly focus the audio image and cut distortion even at floor-shaking volumes.
THX® Certified Select™ Reference Sound
THX Certified Select guarantees the same high-volume sound you experience at a commercial theater in your home. To gain certification, amplifiers must pass the industry’s most severe bench-tests covering every aspect of audio performance. THX Certified Select components are ideally suited to rooms where the screen-to-seat viewing distance is approximately 3 meters, and the room volume is approximately 57 cubic meters.
Unleash Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X™ Home Theater
Object-based soundtracks allow independently mixed sound to play through any speaker in your system, moving above and around you with breathtaking realism. The TX-RZ820 reproduces 5.2.2-channel Dolby Atmos or DTS:X formats, with AccuReflex correcting the phase of direct and indirect sounds for cohesive audio imaging with Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
Music Made Easy with Chromecast built-in*
Stream any music from your smartphone, laptop, or PC to the TX-RZ820 with ease. Control playback with Chromecast-enabled apps you know and love from your iPhone, iPad, Android™ phone or tablet, Mac or Windows® laptop, or Chromebook™.
Stream Anything with DTS Play-Fi®*
DTS Play-Fi is a protocol that works with any audio app on mobiles and PC. Flick whatever’s playing to the receiver, even different sources to different components at the same time.
FireConnect™ Wireless Multi-room Audio
FireConnect™ mirrors network audio and external analog sources connected to a master component—from streaming services to vinyl records—on FireConnect™-compatible speakers in other rooms. Music selection, speaker grouping, and playback management across the home are built into Onkyo Controller app for iOS and Android.
Note: Sharing audio from external inputs depends on the model and is enabled with a future firmware update. Sampling rates of 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz are supported. FireConnect™ is a technology based on Blackfire provided by Blackfire Research Corp., USA.
Wi-Fi®, AirPlay, Spotify®, and Bluetooth®
Selectable 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® assures a stable connection so you can stream over AirPlay, the Spotify app, and the local network. Bluetooth wireless technology provides simple streaming from your choice of app.
Internet Radio and Streaming Services
TIDAL, Deezer, Pandora®, and TuneIn are on board to make selecting from a massive range of music and radio programs using Onkyo Controller very simple.
Note: Pandora is available in Australia and New Zealand only.
Supports HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision™, BT.2020, 4K/60 Hz, and HDCP 2.2
Six rear HDMI® inputs, Main Out, and Zone 2 Out support pass-through of HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), and Dolby Vision; the BT.2020 4K video standard; 4K/60 Hz video playback; and HDCP 2.2 for premium video content. Front HDMI terminal is ideal for video camera connection, while the Zone 2 output distributes home theater video to a display in a second room.
Wide Connectivity for Custom Setups
With 7.2-channel pre-outs, 12 V trigger, IR input, and optional rack-mount kit, the TX-RZ820 easily integrates other components (such as outboard amps) to create a full wired multi-room setup thanks to Powered Zone 2 and Zone 2/3 Pre-/Line Outputs governed by a Whole Home Audio Mode and supported within Onkyo Controller. RS-232 and IP Control via LAN are ready for home automation systems.
Upmixing Solutions for Legacy Soundtracks
DTS Neural:X™ identifies spatial effects in multichannel soundtracks and upmixes for 3D playback through object-audio-ready speaker systems. Dolby Surround also upmixes legacy sound formats so you can experience multidimensional playback of legacy sound formats in a Dolby Atmos environment.
