Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
First new receiver in over twenty years. Love the sound and especially am enjoying using the bluetooth to play music from my mobile device. Setup was easy.
The Onkyo TX-RZ620 works with the latest 4K TVs and Blu-ray players, delivering multidimensional sound to match the stunning Ultra HD picture quality. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X add an extra layer of realism, for a feeling of full-on immersion.
Onkyo's premium RZ Series home theater receivers deliver music and movie soundtracks with detail and accuracy. The 'RZ620 is constructed with quality components like large custom capacitors for consistently great sound throughout the frequency range, and discrete non-phase shift amp circuits for a clearly focused audio image and reduced distortion even at high volume levels.
A premium 32-bit/384kHz digital-to-analog converter gives you crystal-clear reproduction of music, TV, and movie soundtracks. Dynamic Audio Amplification delivers massive power with low distortion for thrilling movie sound effects. Phase-matching Bass Enhancement lets you enjoy deep, satisfying low-frequency effects while vocals and dialogue remain clear.
This receiver also decodes high-resolution audio formats. And Onkyo's Music Optimizer improves the sound from compressed audio files and Bluetooth streams, so you get clear, detailed sound no matter how you listen.
Built-in Wi-Fi lets you access the music you have stored on your networked computer so you can easily play tracks from your personal library through the 'RZ620. Chromecast built-in (requires a firmware update, available now) lets you use your computer, phone, or tablet to stream music from over 100 audio apps to the receiver.
Use the Onkyo Controller app to control streaming from your mobile device. Apple® AirPlay® lets you stream from a compatible iOS® device or from any computer with iTunes®. And Bluetooth adds even more wireless music options.
The 'RZ620 can power a total of seven speakers simultaneously with its seven amplifier channels. But it has outputs for nine speakers, allowing for flexible speaker configurations. If you're happy with 5.2-channel surround sound in your living room, you can use the receiver's powered Zone 2 outputs to connect a pair of speakers for stereo sound in another room.
You can also connect a stereo receiver or amplifier through line-level Zone 2 connections and use the 'RZ620 as a preamp for that zone. That gives you full 7.2-channel surround sound in your home theater and stereo sound in a second room.
A second HDMI output lets you watch the same video source in your main zone and a second room. Start a movie in your living room and finish it in your bedroom or kitchen. Or watch the same content on a TV and projector in the same room. Use the Onkyo Controller app to control playback in different zones from anywhere in the house.

First new receiver in over twenty years. Love the sound and especially am enjoying using the bluetooth to play music from my mobile device. Setup was easy.
Paired with a Samsung TV, it was easier to set up than my last Onkyo reciever. I read another review of this receiver that claimed that it did not work well with a Samsung TV via the ARC. On my Onkyo, whenever I use the Smart Hub feature on the TV, the receiver showed that the input was from the TV and the drives my speakers from whatever I'm watching on the TV and when I exited the Smart Hub, the receiver automatically switched back to CBL/SAT input. You just have to make sure you are using the ARC output on the receiver to the TV and the TV is setup for "Anynet+(HDMI-CEC)" and also set the TV to run the speakers from the receiver.
Pros: Easy set up
Cons: Hope it lasts longer than my last Onkyo (3 years)
Purchased the RZ620 to replace a 5-year old Onkyo receiver that didn't support 4K (we purchased a 4K OLED HDTV at the same time). The RZ620 was very easy to set up and provides the audio and video to allow easy and pleasant TV viewing. We use a programmable Logitech remote control device to switch between inputs, and the Onkyo responds quickly (and correctly) every time.
Love my receiver. Replaced my failed onkyo nr809. Basically the same unit but with all the features i was missing and wanted. Much easier to use, better remote, better app. I can literally turn on my receiver with my phone, change the source and volume and every option in between. I am super glad imade this buy. For only 399 it was a steal
Pros: Excellent value and perfomance
Cons: None so far
Very nice receiver, sounds much better than my old Marantz 2 channel, not to mention crutchfields great customer service
This receiver deserves five stars in my opinion, except for the small consideration that I'm returning it. It turns out that the ARC standard is not a standard at all, but a set of guidelines that may be implemented differently across different devices. For example, my Samsung TV apparently sends a signal to the Onkyo receiver that the receiver misinterprets to mean that the mode should switch from Cable (or DVD or Media Player) to TV. I called Crutchfield tech support and, after some head scratching, got a workaround by turning off ARC. I called Onkyo support and, after explaining the symptoms, was told that it was a problem with the Samsung TV. In all other aspects, this is a very good upgrade from my pre-HDMI Sony AVR. The setup is easy. The result is impressive. I just can't live with devices that don't work together. Crutchfield is terrific. I'm buying a Denon and returning the Onkyo.
Pros: Easy setup, impressive flexibility, excellent sound.
Cons: Doesn't work properly with my Samsung TV
Plenty of features to write home about. The zone 2 works well enough for my purposes. Seems to get the job done well. The iOS apps works without a hitch. Nice to leave the cabinet closed and control the receiver with the app and via the HDMI.
Replacing an older Onkyo unit with the TX-RZ620. I like the updated features with this unit and it's much simpler to set up. The on-screen menu is easier to navigate than the previous Onkyo menus. The sound is great and movies really come alive with the 7.1 surround. Overall a very good buy.
Pros: Easy set up for outstanding sound quality
Cons: No major concerns
Best in home theater I have ever owned great all around receiver love being able to get internet radio through this receiver the surround sound is the best still working with some of the features love it
Pros: Especially love being able to get internet radio no static at all in receive station's
Cons: Have not found any yet
Just what I was looking for.
At this price you get a lot of good performance.
sounds great, setup was easy!
Pros: easy setup!
It's a pleasant surprise..replaced an older Onkyo. Either I just don't know how to but I wished it had pass thru without having to turn the avr on 1st. Having HDMI is very cool! Can't wait to hook up Dolby atmos..
The hookup was easy, the speaker setup was easy and the sound was fantastic. The internet connection is strong and the Bluetooth option is great. I am using the 7.1 setup and the sound is awesome.
Pros: Bluetooth capability.
Cons: No USB connection in the front.
This system is very full featured and sounds great. I added the front height speakers to take advantage of the Dolby Atmos capability and I think that adds additional depth to the sound. I am very satisfied with the system and it seems to work great.
Pros: Lots of great features. Good value. Sounds great.
Cons: The manual is missing some detail.
Very good deal for the price.
Pros: good sound quality
Cons: No straight forward the HDMI output set up to second screen and the zone 2 audio
Switching makes from Denon. I've only had it installed about a week but I love it so far. Intuitive menu interfact, great sound and plenty of up-to-date extras. Would definitely recommend so far!
Pros: great menus, plenty of power & simple remote
Cons: none so far
Great receiver at a great price.
Great receiver at a great price. Upgraded to this unit so I can enjoy 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos and love it. Paired with the new Klipsch Reference Series speakers and this unit fills my living room with awsome clear crisp sound. The remote makes it easy to switch from one source to the next. The onscreen TV display & front unit lcd display makes it easy to fine tune my settings. It also has a built in high temp sensor so when your listening to music like sitting on the front row of a concert it will automatically turn down to keep from over heating and blowing the unit. This is a great mid level unit for those who want great sound for your movies, music, tv, etc. The only complaint so far is when I turn off the power and turn it back on it dont always keep the same source it was previously on.
Pros: Dolby Atmos, Multisource Remote, High Temp Sensor
Cons: doesnt always keep same source after turning off and on.
Nice price,had to call a tech for a hiccup in the set up and it he solved the issue quickly and took the time to help me understand the menus .Very happy,sounds great.
Pros: Easy set up
Haven't had an AV receiver in several years. Last one I had was Pioneer Elite before HDMI! Was looking at a cheaper Denon model, but the sale price on this was too good to pass up. Glad I went with it. Using it in a 5.1 setup and so far so good. The setup was easy and the auto audio setup seems to have done a darn good job. I'll verify with a SPL at some point. Airplay works great the setup menu is easy to navigate. Only thing I wish I could do is rename the inputs.
It was money well spent. I'm very happy with the product Onkyo is known for their quality but the best was the service by crutchfield, this item was shipped within a couple of hours. That was fantastic. I have dealt with them before they're super super customer friendly. Satisfaction with the product 100%, satisfaction with the company 200%.
Pros: Quality product, great price, great customer service
The last time I had purchased a receiver was about 15 years ago. This was welcome upgrade with many features that weren't available in 2003. I am very pleased with the ease of setup, The manual was very easy to follow and understand. I highly recommend this receiver to anyone in the market to upgrade or for starters.
Pros: Looks great ! Many features very easy to setup.
Cons: Can't think of anything at this time.
I've spent the past two months listening to all my music again, wanting to hear it "fresh" on the new system. I am not disappointed. The clean, uncluttered look of the unit is very pleasing, and the sound quality and listening options allow me to tailor the reproduction of sound to my particular taste. If I had to come up with one criticism, I'd say a USB port in the front of the unit would have been nice. That being said, it was easy enough to get a six inch extension cable and easily swap out flash drives. I know the manual recommends only connecting the thumb drive directly, but it works fine.
Easy setup. My 38 year old Polk Monitor 10s sound great! My sub shakes the walls now. Speaker setup was very easy and accurate.
Pros: Easy setup; great sound & power
The Best Network receiver for the price... Excellent sound quality and performance. Love the second zone. Life is Good with this Amp.
Pros: Simple operation and friendly setup.
This was a great find & great price. I realize it is now a discontinued product but, I wholeheartedly recommend it if you can get it to blend the older analog precious items in an audiophile's world to be able to continue to play legacy content such a LP's, Reel to Reel using either the CD component connection or assignable RCA type connectivity while continuing to grow into the realm of HDMI connected equipment. I am not ready to give up on past types of media giving me a few more yrs. of opportunity to digitize tape media & LP's. Some of my content is private family based while other parts of my library are copyrighted pre-recorded content & can be acquired purchasable digitally now. But still to give up the integration capacity would of been tough going full force digitally in some of the newer component receivers. I can still connect that content into a quasi-Dolby audio system w\loss of quality. I even like it so I can play hard to find content which originally & only on Laserdisc to be shown on & through this receiver due to the fact, there are 720x486/576 connections which if upscale to 1080 configuration; peripherals tend to enlarge screen size but along w\that inflates the noise level associated w\upscaling. I would rather still be able to watch it at a native format. All of this content integrates also with either a HP Pavilion 900 min windows 10 system which also allows watching & listening to media stored on my network. I can utilize my existing spkrs.
Pros: allows the connectivity of even limited legacy audio video components. Removes need for external HDMI switching units which tend to degrade video signal say ultimately to a Home theater or commercial grade projection system.
Cons: does not have audio in audio out connectivity for recording purposes especially if you have older legacy devices such as cassette audio, VCR's and or reel to reel . I will be digitizing that media soon, but relegate the recording devices in my office for later use. Maybe if I spent more money, some product out there does support these items still but no worries, it will give me incentive to move forward digitally.
had this receiver up and running for about a month with no issues. hookup was easy the back of the receiver was nicely laid out and easy to plug in cables and wires. the initial setup was a breeze with the supplied microphone. i set up a box on my couch where i sit with the microphone at the same height as were my ears would be, followed the onscreen directions and waited a few minutes while the receiver ran through all the test tones. the results were great! the distances were spot on and the sound after the setup was much better. the tx-rz620 has plenty of power for all seven channels running at the same time and just sounds amazing. bluetooth sounds great too. it picks up my iphone 6 no problem and my wife's galaxy phone. the only glitch so far has been switching video inputs. it does take a few seconds to switch from my uhd bluray player to the cable box and a few times the cable box picture has been pixelated. i switched inputs then went back and it was fine. maybe a bad hdmi cable? the main reason i bought the onkyo was the price and the phono input which sounds great! i always loved onkyo's all channel stereo mode and listening to some old vinyl in seven channel stereo is awesome. my only gripe with this receiver is that the usb input is on the back of the receiver so i bought a usb dongle and ran it to the front of the receiver. not sure why onkyo put the usb input on the back. also the usb input only plays audio formats. no video. overall a great receiver and price
Pros: great sounding amp, phono input, seven channel stereo, easy to set up, price for what you get, best bang for your buck
Cons: usb input on the back of the receiver, a little slow to switch video inputs
Replaced my old Harman Kardon with this Onkyo TX-RZ620 - and love it! I'm still working on Internet connection, but just haven't had the time yet. Great receiver!
My 5.1.2 setup was effortless. My 4k Hdr disc's worked perfectly. My voice instructions to my Google mini somehow self configured to turn on and play songs through my Onkyo. And Crutchfield's Kristina directed me to this receiver saving me enough for better accessories.
Pros: 4k Hdr pass through Atmos Audyssey EQ Google home integration
Cons: 15.5 inches deep with bannana plugs.
The base response is significantly improved. Also, the operations is simplified among receiver, TV and Comcast box. I like it.
Pros: Solid performance.
Cons: No cons
Fantastic receiver. The set up was easy. The receive is a big upgrade from old Sony. First time with Onkyo product thanks for recommending it.
Pros: Auto set up. Great sound quality.
Very easy to set up. I like having one remote to switch between cable and streaming. The remote really is very good at controlling most of what we need to do. This receiver has a lot of features - some I have yet to get to. The Crutchfield customer service was very, very helpful. Great experience overall.
Powerful, easy to use .manual very clear.
The real deal and simple to set up. A great product!
Pros: Great sound, power, and ease of use
Set up is easy. Great sound. My second Onkyo receiver. Very Happy
I gave this receiver four stars because it does have an excellent sound once you get it tweeked properly. The Accu calibration does not work well at all. Overall I was not happy with this unit because it does have a few quirks. I upgraded to a Denon and I am Ecstatic with it !
Pros: Sound quality exceptional once you manually set up speaker crossovers
Cons: Accu calibration did not properly set up the crossover for my speakers Not even close
Seems to be a good receiver. Does not have some of the features that my previous Yamaha had. Crutchfield prices were a huge part of my decision to buy this.
I was a little hesitant to retire my separate amp & preamp (Adcom) in favor of an all-in-one receiver. But after one week with the Onkyo TX-RZ620 I know I made a great choice. Sound quality is simply superb...I don't feel like I've made any sacrifices from my previous separates setup. The digital processing is flawless, and setup was relatively simple. I'm still trying to figure out if the Onkyo iPhone app works with this receiver...other than that I could not be more pleased with this purchase.
Pros: Great sound. Awesome processing. Super reasonable price.
Great receiver for the price. Easy to setup, and the assisted setup features are great, especially the auto-calibration. Does everything I need with excellent value! With the built in Chromecast audio and ability too add and use additional features in the future. All in all I do believe Onkyo makes a solid product.
Pros: Great receiver
Cons: None, yet.
Purchased to replace faulty Onkyo TX-NR515. Much more functionality in this one!
Great product Great Price
Sounded good but the quality wasn't there . I had to send it back wouldn't switch right.
Pros: Sounds great
Cons: No quality checks
Amazing products, a great app combined with Onkyo's traditional sound quality makes for an amazing receiver.
Pros: Ease-of-use, so much better than older units
USB storage device.....One could conclude that a USB connection is a USB connection for all devices. However it does not recognize an I-pod as a storage device for playing music via USB....apparently only via a flash drive. Bluetooth.....One could conclude that bluetooth connectivity means wireless to all bluetooth enabled devices. However it does not have an "output" signal, such as to a bluetooth headset....only an input, such as an I-pod. Both features I wanted in a new receiver. Documentation does not identify either of these limitations. Shame on me for not digging deeper prior to purchase.
Pros: Good sound quality
Cons: poor Bluetooth and USB connectivityCrutchfield response on 11/28/2018 David, we're sorry you're disappointed with your receiver.

Great receiver. Does everything I need with excellent value!
Enjoying my new receiver.
Pros: Love the simplicity and smooth styling
Cons: None, yet.
This is an excellent receiver. Sound quality is outstanding. I replaced an old Sony AV receiver with this Onkyo. No comparison. The Onkyo produces terrific channel separation. You can hear every movie sound effect from each surround speaker quite clearly. Center speaker produces very clear and sharp dialogue. It can take time to make all the connections and get to know how this receiver works. But once you figure it all out, it is well worth the purchase. Like others have said, the remote feels a bit cheap. But that is a minor con.
Pros: Excellent sound quality.
Cons: Remote control is a bit cheap.
Had a Preamp/amp setup for my Deftech Mythos STL Speakers. I ended up getting a second system for which the amp/preamp would be more appropriate and decided on this receiver as a replacement. As the Mythos are essentially bookshelves on top of respective subs, I decided I would get something that made more fiscal sense...something with good reviews. I will say this was perhaps my best purchase for this price tag. The receiver is amazing... enables the speakers to deliver great sound. I was particularly impressed with the bluetooth connectivity - maybe I have better luck with Onkyo but the bluetooth totally bested the capability on my much more expensive Marantz AV7703 Preamp. Additional to that, I enjoy the physical buttons and the aux jack at the front of the unit for anyone else that wants to play music through their devices. This machine is a tremendous value and a jack of all trades that actually has impressive sound. I bought a second one because I liked it for my office (to power 6-ohm Pioneer FS52 speakers) but will be returning only because I needed something with a smaller form factor (I ended up purchasing the NAD D7050). Regardless, even with the 6-ohm speakers, the receiver rocked. The Pure Direct Mode sounds amazing.
Pros: Amazing Sound right out the box, Instruction Manual & Easy setup, functionality, hard buttons, Front 3.5mm Aux jack, Great Bluetooth signal/connectivity
Cons: ARC HDMI didnt seem to work; Digital Coax worked for TV connection though
Great receiver for the price. Setup was direct and easy. Everything performed as it should. The arc hdmi output failed after a week. With the help from your tech it was quickly diagnosed and fixed with adding an optical cable. I've had to do this on my last three receivers, so I wasn't surprised. Again for the money a great piece of equipment.
Excellent A/V sound system. It supports my 4Ohm speakers great and has an excellent sound. Love it
Pros: Excellent sound. Supports 4Ohm speakers. Bluetooth allows audio streaming. Wi-Fi allows playback from home PC
Cons: Can't think of any
Upgrade replacement for a 7 year old Onkyo receiver that did not have bluetooth or wi-fi capability. Easy setup, unplug the connections to the old receiver and plug them into the new one, then run the initial setup auto start-up wizard and AccuEQ room calibration.
Pros: easy setup great sound
So far so good. Easy setup, however you need a tv or monitor for setup. Wireless system is straight forward as well no issues so far.
Very nice home theater system for a great price. Easy to setup, and the assisted setup features are great, especially the auto-calibration using the supplied microphone (though the static test tones freaked out my cat). Very high quality sound, and many features that we haven't even explored yet.
Excellent product, crisp clear sound. I absolutely love the 3 zones available. Its like having three stereos in one. The Onyko App works flawlessly and has never crashed.
Pros: Bluetooth, wireless, and Onyko App work excellent. My favorite feature is now being able to power unit up from app.
Cons: only one, I wish there was more space between speaker connections, wiring without banana clips is difficult.
Onkyo never disappoints. There is no better value on the market. You get an outstanding high end receiver for mid level price. Easy setup and tons of features. The only thing lacking is the remote. Its very basic, but who cares, its the sound we all care about.
Pros: I love it!
Great replacement for my Marantz
good easy to install
We've been using it for several months now and have had no problems with it. Like others have mentioned, the set-up couldn't be easier. Sound calibration is very good. On my previous receiver, we were always having to mess with the sound output settings (the various settings for music, theater, dolby, etc.) but with this unit, music and theater sound great on one setting.
Pros: Super easy to set up. Consistent sound quality across different media.
Cons: Like just about every receiver ever made, the remote is mostly row of tiny buttons with even smaller print.
Great overall unit for the money. Set up was easy.
Hi thank you for shipping my new Receiver very fast to my house. The Onkyo is working great, and was easy to set up, everything came together seamless. I feel I got a very good price, a lot of features, and am very happy with my purchase Thank you, Dale
Pros: Value, Quality, and Trust. buying from Crutchfield
Cons: all good
Very nice product, works very well. Sound is crisp and clear
I paired this with monitor audio gx50 bookshelf speakers and use it for both music and tv in stereo 2.1 channel mode. Plenty of power for my speakers and also love all the features airplay, bluetooth, etc. I pretty much play classical, jazz, and rock. The sound quality is pretty amazing for a receiver in this price range. Very happy with the purchase
Pros: great price, features, precise sound quality
Cons: none so far
Easy to set up.I like the stereo (2.1) mode cause I listened to music most of the time on this unit plus its also equipped with Dolby Atmos/DTS:X perfect upgrade for my other Onkyo receiver.
Pros: Easy to set-up.Comes equipped with Dolby Atmos/DTS:X.Very reasonable price.
Cons: I can't think of at this time.
It was a once in a life time purchase.
Happy with auto sound settings using mic. Previous receivers I've owned with the mic setup didn't sound good afterward and usually had to manually adjust. I have a mix of speaker brands and I'm much happier with the sound now than I was with a previous Onkyo and Yamaha.
Pros: Sound Easy Setup
Nice unit with sweet sound but unfortunately I couldn't get the subwoofer output to function so I returned it. All in all I do believe Onkyo makes a solid product I just got unlucky with this one
Pros: Beautiful, well balanced sound. Has many options for connecting various devices.
Cons: Possible a little too complex for this old codger. I am going back to "stereo" only which is all I really need.
I love this receiver. I've had it a couple of weeks and am still getting to know it, but it was a huge step up from my old Pioneer. I use it for sound from my DishTv and for music. This thing has a ton of hook up options, but what I love most is it's wireless and Bluetooth capability. I have a bunch of music stored on my pc and listen to Spotify and Pandora also. It hooked up easily to my wireless network. It's pretty easy to access the options, as they will display on your tv screen if your tv is on. I don't now how (maybe CEC) but now when I turn my tv on, the receiver comes on also. I haven't hooked up my rear speakers-right now just 2 Polk Audio R40's, a Polk center channel speaker and a Polk PSW440 subwoofer-so I can't really speak to the home theater experience. It does have room for expansion though, supporting extra speakers and speaker in other rooms. This may be last years model, as it was discounted and I grabbed an open box item from clearance. But it satisfies my needs without spending $750-$1000 for a receiver. I recommend it.
Pros: Tons of great features Easy to connect to your wireless network Lots of options for playing/streaming music
Cons: None I found yet
While this is a decent receiver, the two main reasons I purchased it disappointed me. 1. I used to use AirPlay a lot to send music from my iPad to my previous receiver. When the AirPlay circuitry started to fritz my TV monitor, I figured the receiver was ready to be replaced. So you can imagine my disappointment when this new receiver's AirPlay makes an intermittent connection to my iPad. The screen is stable, but AirPlay is not! 2. The other reason I purchased this receiver is that it has certain streaming services built in. The advantage of using, say TIDAL, which I have, is that the signal is not compressed, whereas it is if I play it over WiFi from my iPad or PC. Though the TIDAL interface isn't bad on my iPad, it is horrible on the receiver. There is NO Search and no listing by genre. The listing isn't even alphabetized; its just a random collection of CD's I've never heard of by artists I've never heard of. Now, on the positive side, it does sound better than my old receiver, a Pioneer VSX-1022-K. BTW, while Onkyo does have dedicated RZ series tech support, they aren't very good. The first tech rushed me, trying to get me to solve my own problems. The last one didn't even know that the receiver had streaming services built in.
Pros: A lot of signal processing technologies provide sublime improvements if your source material is already good.
Cons: AirPlay unreliable, tech support mediocre.
This was a major upgrade from my 30 year old Technics home theater system with matching cassette and cd player. I wanted something I could interface my Blu-ray player and yes even cassette did away with cd player and have internet capabilities. This unit was recommend by the sales person and works great. I have since installed a google chromecast which was plugged into my tv before now I have it plugged into my Onkyo which now allows me to stream video with the sound going through the receiver. I have only owned it a few weeks now but very happy with purchase. Only a couple of minor issues. First is the HDMI pass through when receiver is off does not always work in auto mode. Second using tunein radio app that comes with the receiver some station can't connect but using other tunein apps it connects with no problem.
Pros: Good price and warranty with lots of features.
Cons: HDMI passthough and tunein radio support.
easy to setup and a lot of features for the money.
Pros: very easy setup - modern features.
Cons: none so far
My first impression is how clear the sound is--even my wife commented favorably. Next, the unit runs very cool--after hours of operation the case is only slightly warm. Be aware that this unit is several inches deeper than my old Onkyo TX 646--a consideration if it is located in a cabinet. Set up has been simplified ; the AccuEQ room calibration does a great job. There is no TV picture control, but who cares? The lack of a printed manual is the only real negative--the included material is very basic.
Pros: Sound quality and ease of set up.
Cons: No manual
Great home theater receiver easy set up great for my speakers
Pros: Easy set up enough power
Cons: Wish it came in silver also
more power, who doesn't want that ? simply interface. 4 stars because I can't seem to get the ARC channel to work with my LG 4K tv via HDMI. called Onkyo and they told me to get an ARC compatible cord, which I did, to no avail. works with optical cord but wanted to use the so called better option. Aside from this one flaw, no complaints
I was very pleased with the Onkyo TX-RZ620 receiver. I was a long term Sony user (20 years), but, when it was time to upgrade, I read the reviews of the Onkyo, and gave it a go. Setup was very easy, I like the remote, and it gives great sound through my Polk Towers and surround speakers. The sounds quality is much cleaner than the previous gen Sony. I considered going up to the 820 to get 130 watts/channel, but, am glad I chose the 620. Volume is great and very clean. Highly recommend this receiver.
excellent upgrade from my older 1080p Onkyo amplifier. Nearly identical setup to my old Onkyo. New NET music features are great and are nicely integrated into the amplifier. Have yet to really test out the 4K features as I'm still using 1080p TV and blu-ray (which work fine by the way). Had to update firmware out of the box which was a little clunky. Recommend this amp if you are looking for an update to get yourself 4K compatability.
Pros: NET music features well done.
Cons: remote not programmable for other components. No dimmer button on remote. firmware update was clunky.
The TX-620 was very easy to set up. This replaced my 12 year Onkyo HT -800. After set-up I couldn't believe how my 5.1 speaker's filled the room full of surround sound .My contact at Crutchfield , Artie was very helpful with questions I asked. It made my decision to buy TX-R620 very easy.
Pros: Very easy set up, super sound
a nice receiver with lots of features.
Pros: A nice receiver for the price
Cons: If you're going to spend this kind of money I would expect a full manual
This receiver was an upgrade to my previous Onkyo TX-NR609. The TX-RZ620 provides great sound and HDMI switching from 1080P and 4K video equipment is perfect. Drives plenty of sound to my 5.1 speakers in a fairly large 20'x20' family room.
Pros: HDMI 4K switching Bi-Amp front speakers IR Remote connection, so my receiver can be placed in an A/V closet
Great amp. It's very user friendly with room filling sound.
Much better sound all around than the older Sony that it replaced. Much simpler to identify and use features too
I finally joined the 21st Century with HDMI 4K switching capability. The Onkyo TX-RZ620 auto-switches audio & video sources flawlessly, with no more need for digital optical cables. I've also moved up from 5.1 to 7.1 surround sound and as expected a noticeable improvement in home theatre sensory immersion. I've been a long time Onkyo fan and this model has more than met my expectations. Thanks too go to Crutchfield for assisting me in my research and as always providing great purchase/delivery customer service.
Pros: Seamless HDMI 4K source auto-switching and fidelity. Feature rich 7.1 receiver; likely more than I'll ever need.
I have never been disappointed with Onkyo, this is my third receiver that I buy. The quality and price range for this unit is good for what I need. Very solid unit. Setting up the unit out of the box what simple. Also, I like the the media streaming applications and how you can use your mobile app to manage your music.
Replaced a Sony ES receiver that lost sound. Easy setup. Calibration was impressive as it adjusts equalization along with level and makes multiple iterations in doing so. Sound is better than any previous receiver including Sony, Pioneer, Carver, Harman, etc. Drives the speakers easily with better power and definition than any previous units.
Pros: Power, definition and calibration.
Cons: Harmony remote setup is a little more difficult as the program uses output name - tv/cable/streaming box, etc. rather than input hdmi1/video1 so if you have more than 6 inputs you need to rename so as not to repeat an output name.
Had an onkyo nr515. HDMI went out so I upgraded. First bought a Denon but couldn't compare to the sound I got from my old onkyo. So I returned it to the store and called crutchfield and I got this rz620. Man I LOVE this unit! Easy and quick setup, and the same great power and sound that go with the onkyo name! I am pushing a pair of Klipsch icon tower speakers, as well as their quintet set, and a Polk sub.
Pros: Easy setup Very affordable Amazing sound
Cons: Can't control any other devices with the remote.
Setup was very easy. I'm coming from a 10-year-old Sony receiver, but the ease of use really stands out. The sounds quality is noticeably better. HDMI ports, Bluetooth, and Airplay make this a pleasure to use. No more fiddling with multiple remotes and explaining to other what to do, just turn on the tv and hit the input on the receiver you want to use.
Powered up my SVS Ultra bookshelf speakers with no issues. Still haven't played with all the features, but with all the wifi and BT capabilities and the power it can put out, it's hard not to like this receiver at this price point. I just wish Onkyo would make components in the aluminum finish that they sell in Japan... way better esthetics.
Pros: Lots of features Solid power Good price
Cons: Looks could be better
Great receiver. Lots of options. Pushes the speakers to the limit.
Pros: Lots of options & power
I waited too long to buy this. I've been running a surround setup using what is now an ancient 2003 model Onkyo, and I just didn't want to go through the hassle and stress of unplugging and re-calibrating everything. I procrastinated just to avoid going through all of that, until the center channel on the old Onkyo finally went out and we lost dialogue. 15 years of good service, no complaints. So I took the plunge and ordered this, and I confess that I was not excited to open the box just because I was dreading the install and all the connections and getting it all right. Turns out I procrastinated for nothing - I cannot believe how easy it was to get it all set up and working BEAUTIFULLY. The on-screen wizard makes it so easy, the calibration went off without a single hitch, and what I thought would be a nightmare task took very little time and suddenly we had glorious sound filling the room. The menus are easy, the remote is a thing of simplistic beauty, the Onkyo control layout is easy, and everything just worked without any hassle. We're running a 5.1.2 setup and we are digging the Atmos aspect too - we've got a 4K player and movies like John Wick on 4K not only look incredible but the Atmos soundtrack is worth the price of admission. In summary - best $$$ I've spent in a long time, and the installation and surround calibration with this Onkyo was so easy. And it sounds fantastic. 5 easy stars without hesitation.
Pros: It's so easy! Calibration setup incredibly simple. Sounds glorious. Remote is nice in the hand, so easy to use, not confusing. Looks good, built well. Really cool Music Optimizer feature for Spotify and other compressed audio - makes a big difference.
Cons: Only one I can find is the manual is very basic. You'll have to go online to Onkyo's site to get more meat to fill in the info gaps on things like equalizer presets and such.
Great sound, good looks, easy set up.
The receiver works as advertised. Very easy to hook up. Had an issue with the HDMI-CEC, but it turned out to be a problem with my Television. With assistance from Crutchfield tech staff, the issue was resolved.
Pros: Easy to install initial setup program works as intended on screen menus are wonderful great sound great picture
Great receiver for me. I needed something that could push 4 ohm speakers and the onkyo RZ 620 has done it with ease. I bi- amped my 4 ohm speakers and it is awesome. It even got my wife's attention. Thanks crutchfieid.
Pros: Multi- Tasker. Great power and sound.
Cons: 2nd zone controls.
Great deal on this received. Fits perfect and sound is great. Very easy to use!. Just bought a 2nd one for my basement.
Great price sounds great easy to hook up replacing and older Bose lifestyle 48 system . easy hook up for the 4k TV and 4k dvd player. sounds great with the Bose speakers from the old system and a new Polk HTS12 sub
Pros: easy hook up with 4k tv and dvd sound great with my old speakers
Cons: it's tall might not fit in some Ent. stands
Great unit. Exactly what I wanted. Impeccable service as usual.
Overall the Onkyo TX-RZ620 is a very good AV Receiver. The setup is very simple and the sound quality is quite good. It does lack in features which is to expected for its reasonable price.
Pros: Good Sound Easy Setup
Cons: Lack of Features
Easy to hookup to my existing AV/Speaker system. Excellent sound quality.
I do not like setting these things up, but this was very easy. Manual was easy to read and had the way I wanted to set my system up using the ARC channel. Everything sound and works great. I listen to music more than watch TV or movies, and it does a great job at that task. This is my first Onkyo system and when its time to get more serious. I will definitely think about them for my next purchase.
TX-RZ620 was easy to setup. It replaced an old Onkyo Receiver that bit the dust. I picked this receiver because it matched the options I wanted which brought my system up to date but not at an outlandish price. My big Con is the smart phone Controller App.... is very user unfriendly and complex and I am a nerd who usually has no problems with these kind of things. Much easier to use the remote that came with they receiver. So, far I would rate the receiver an A and the remote and F-
Pros: Easy setup, good instructions, fits my needs. Eddie at Crutchfield was a joy to work with in ordering the system.
I purchased this model to update from a 10 year old Onkyo TX-SR706, a very similar unit. I will list my "discoveries" rather than a boring "technical review". This is my first experience with the ARC technology (Audio Return Channel). One HDMI connection to the new 4K Sharp Aquous TV, and no more need for a separate audio or optical audio TV connection. Here are some interface notes: If the TV is switched on and THEN the RZ620 is switched on, no sound ever appears. If the RX620 is switched on and THEN the TV is switched on, I will get sound - after a fashion of 30 seconds or so. This is an odd thing, but really nothing more than a "learning curve" issue. When the RX620 is muted, I found I can mute it from the TX's remote OR the TV's remote. NICE! When MUTING the RZ620, there is no on-screen display of anything. When UNMUTING, a bar graph with sound level number appears on the TV screen. Odd, but no big deal. With a Blu-ray player in use, the same thing occurs except I will get TWO graphs on-screen - one from the Onkyo and one forthe Blu-ray. Again, odd but no big deal. (On-screen graphs only show momentarily, by the way). Speaker setup with the remote microphone went faster and easier than the old receiver. I did find afterwards that I needed to turn the volume level of the Subwoofer WAAAAY down. No biggie. The RZ620's volume dial is HUGE but is has a really nice tactile feel - but why so HUGE? Love this TX-RZ620. My old TX-SR706 is going to be implemented elsewhe
Pros: Powerful, great sound, easy setup, ONKYO well-proven quality, user-friendly menu system, a very good owner's manual, three year warranty
Cons: Nothing of any real consequence - but then everything has its own little "operational / interface quirks" with other brand products; this is just normal for any mix-and-match electronic systems
Works great, has the features of higher priced units.
Pros: Many features
Top should have louvers so dustcan't go directly in
Pros: Easy set up
Cons: Top should have louvers said dust cannot go directly inside
Great value, got it on sale. Great sound and features.
Sound is great and very easy setup. Replaced my previous Onkyo which I had for 16 years.
Easy setup of your various connections plus setup mic for sound tuning setup. Great sound no matter if you are watching movies, tv or listening to music - it's all good. Hope it lasts many years to come.
I am only using this one for stereo music listening for now. I did not hook it up to TV screen, but just to PC monitor. I am pretty satisfied by the clear and detailed sound from Onkyo amp. It is leading to KEF bookself speakers. Convenient feature such like bluetooth is good for listening digital music from my online classic music library. But the Wi fi network function is under expectation. Network does not seem to support easy access to the PC stored files. And the receiver automatically switches to Buletooth mode when I turn on the PC during CD playing. That is one small inconvenience, yet.
Really enjoying this receiver. I am using it to run my movie/theater room. Great set of features even though I am not using half of them. ( My projector is not 4k and I am running a 5.1 setup.) Love the built in Chromecast audio and ability to add to and use additional features in the future.
Pros: Sound, connections, features
Cons: None as of yet
Easy to set up and use So far works great as the heart of a surround sound 7.1 system. This unit replaced an earlier equivalent Onkyo that did not support the latest UHD specs.
Easy setup. Technical assistance from Crutchfield cleared up one small issue.
This is an initial review as I only got it installed and components connected this weekend. Set up seemed easy at first but had to go back into menu to make certain changes to the inputs. The speaker EQ/mic set up is great and easy to do. I love having all the HDMI inputs- I have DirectTV, Apple TV, blue ray all connected to the receiver and only 1 wire connected to my 4k TV. I especially like that I can use these video sources without having to use the receiver with the bypass function- but it doesn't default to that, you have to change it in the menu. So far I'm pleased especially with the price paid during one of special purchase promotions.
I bought this unit to upgrade from my Sony STR-DH750, which was an ok system but lacked much of the functionality (and wi-fi connectivity) of this Onkyo unit. A Crutchfield associate helped me break down the differences between the RZ620 and the RZ610 (discontinued), which was slightly cheaper. I felt confident, based on other reviews, that the 620 would meet my needs for now and well into the future, as I have yet to make the leap into 4K ultra HD. The sound quality is a definite improvement vs. the Sony. The onscreen interface menus are much better, too, and I feel like I understand this Onkyo's settings better because of the text accompanying the onscreen menus; the Sony text was very confusing. I'm enjoying the wi-fi capability, as I can send music from Windows Media Player on our home computer directly to this unit and even control volume. I'd had big Xfinity/Comcast cable box audio clipping issues with the Sony which still occur with this unit, but they are much shorter in duration and seem less frequent. Overall, so far I'm very happy with this purchase (2 weeks post-installation).
Pros: sound quality lots of HDMI and component inputs/outputs onscreen menus are descriptive and easy to navigate
Cons: none so far?
Very pleased thus far. Plenty of power and clean sound for my home theatre setup. HDMI switching has been problem free. Menus are better than in the past. Another quality receiver from Onkyo.

Immersive Surround Sound: The Onkyo TX-RZ620 AV receiver goes beyond regular surround with the latest immersive surround sound formats, including Dolby Atmos, Dolby Surround, DTS:X, & DTS Neural:X.
AccuEQ w/ AccuReflex: AccuEQ conducts two measurements: (1) it measures and sets the distance, sound pressure level and crossover of your speakers and subwoofer to ensure all channels are treated equally (2) it evaluates your room's sonic characteristics and adjusts your speaker's frequency response to prevent standing waves from forming. AccuEQ incorporates AccuReflex technology to align the phase of upfiring "height" speakers with the sound coming directly from your other speakers. Any delay is resolved so that everything arrives at your ears at the same time. The result is cohesive reproduction of object-based soundtracks. You can save up to 3 AccuEQ presets. The included microphone plugs into the front-panel of the receiver.
Note: You can choose to bypass the AccuEQ for your front speakers or all speakers, and manually set the distance, crossover, EQ, and level of each speaker.

This is a replacement for my trusty (but dated) Onkyo TX-SR605 which has worked perfectly for the past 12 or so years. The TX-SR605 has only 2x HDMI inputs and is missing bluetooth/airplay support. Time to upgrade! [ Antony Feb 07, 2019 ]

My previous onkyo NR656 has a bad remote sensor, so I'm replacing with this one. I only buy onkyo receivers very happy with the quality and sound. [ kevin Jan 14, 2019 ]
I consulted with a Crutchfield technician and explained my intended use, size of room, number of speakers, and my listening and use interests. Based off of the consult, I was provided with several recommendations and narrowed it down to two units....I chose this one because it has a phono input and the other unit did not.

Replacement of current Onkyo SR608 [ E Jan 02, 2019 ]
I liked the balance of features offered. It seems to best accommodate being used as a home theater receiver and a traditional audio receiver. Also I am familiar with Onkyo products being reliable and high quality. Ultimately a tough choice because Crutchfield has multiple similar products within my price range that I expect would all function great. A good problem to have when shopping for a new device. [ Martin Jan 02, 2019 ]
I just bought a Samsung UHD TV and I want to play movies from my Blue Ray device to my receiver and use it to play the sound and upload the UHD video to my TV. My old receiver does not have an HDMI port to upload the UHD video but Marshall (Crutchfield rep) confirmed that the Onkyo TX-RZ620 will be able to do this so I went ahead and made the purchase. Thanks Crutchfield! [ TERRANCE Jan 01, 2019 ]
It fits my needs and replaces my TX-NR709. [ Ardell Dec 31, 2018 ]
Needed a new stereo receiver after my Pioneer unit started loosing channels. I wanted a receiver that could support a second room (kitchen), and have phono in capability. I know, I'm old and still like listening to records. It also has the capabilities to operate the new Sony Blue ray player I purchased with this unit, and will hopefully last for the next decade [ Bruce Edward Dec 29, 2018 ]

Channel requirements are bass, left front and right front. If additional speakers, then left and right rear duplicate left and right front. A center speaker ok but not necessary. I will use SVS wireless connection for the rear speakers. [ edward Dec 27, 2018 ]

My current Onkyo receiver (TX-NR727) has been great, but it could not pass-through my 4K HDR signal. I wasn't planning on making the purchase of the Onkyo TX-RZ620, but I needed a receiver that could send the HDR signal and the deal was too good to pass up. [ Chris Dec 21, 2018 ]
I am setting up a home theater in my new house. I have a really old Onkyo TX-SV515Pro and in my last home theater I was running an Onkyo 700 series.

Although is it a 2017 model, the added features of the 2018 model weren't enough to convince me to purchase the "latest and greatest", especially considering that this model has been marked down for clearance. It's currently an incredible bargain for an Onkyo RZ series AV receiver. [ B Dec 04, 2018 ]

I really enjoy watching movies in bed w/ a Sony 75" tv, Sony 4K player, & Sony HTCT800 2.1 sound-bar & wireless 6.3" subwoofer combo but am not impressed with the sound at all. So I bought a media chest (dresser w/ area for AV components) & am upgrading my audio experience. I decided on the Onkyo TX-RZ620 because I wanted a mid-class well-reviewed receiver to utilize a 5.1 system of Klipsch R-series speakers but also has a second channel to send music to 2 bathroom speakers (which Sony can't do) [ William F.

I needed to replace my older 1080p Denon to make full use of my 2k projector. I selected this 7.2 so I can run 2 channels on my left and right Klipsch speakers and run 2 subs (my old receiver was 5.1). I also like that is has dual hdmi outs so I can run either my Epson HC4000 projector or my TV without having to switch out the cables in the back. I bought it primarily for home theater and ps4 pro video gaming. [ joshua Apr 28, 2018 ]

Both will. But I would not buy Onkyo. I have had Two THX models and both have lost various capabilities. the 1st lost Sub woofer connections, 2nd one (very new, from Crutchfield) stopped connecting to the TV. couldn't find it's HDMI. I replaced it with best Sony I could find from BEST BUY. Works great, sounds awesome! Maybe shipping screws up the receivers. [ John Jan 02, 2019 ]
Yes it will. It's easier to navigate the stations with the TV on though [ Matthew Dec 31, 2018 ]
Yes [ JASON Dec 30, 2018 ]
Yes, you need to use the Onkyo Android or Apple Play-Fi app. [ LUDMILA Dec 29, 2018 ]
Yes it will. I do not have it connected to the tv right now. I run it between phono, aux, and bluetooth inputs mostly. I will say though, set-up is a much bigger pain without the tv, and may have to be initially set-up through the tv. [ George Dec 29, 2018 ]
This deck plays music without the tv on [ Jacek Dec 29, 2018 ]
Yes it will, and quite nicely I might add. The easiest way to operate it in a multifunctional capacity is to use a multifunction remote. This type of remote will only turn on the components necessary based upon the activity you select. I personally have used Logitech multifunction remotes for years and have been very pleased, but I am sure Crutchfield has a wide variety to choose from. [ Shaun Dec 29, 2018 ]
It's absolutely possible, all you need is the ARC (HDMI) connection from your receiver to your TV. Anything else that you connect or play from your TV will go back out through the fiber connection. I use a 7.1 Fluance speaker system and this receiver handles every bit of it. Amazon Prime sounds awesome, Netflix, gaming systems, Blu-ray player and anything else you can think of. As an added bonus you can stream music apps from your phone through the Bluetooth connection, I haven't found anything it can't do yet. [ Jeremy Jan 08, 2019 ]
Yes, it will work the way you want it to. Use an HDMI cable to connect the ARC HDMI input/output(s) between your TV and the receiver, and then select TV on the receiver's source input and you should have no problems. [ Justin Jan 07, 2019 ]
I have no problems getting Netflix and Amazon audio through ARC using the TV input, whether using the TV's built-in apps or my Chromecast. [ DEREK Jan 07, 2019 ]
Yes you can. I just configured it this weekend for it to do this it's a great receiver [ RICK A Jan 07, 2019 ]
Since I purchased my Onkyo RZ620 back in August 2018 it has performed beautifully and yes Netflix, Apple TV 4K and Amazon 4K fire stick all come though with great sound. I haven't had any problems with this my Onkyo RZ620. I hope this information will help you. [ Clifford Jan 07, 2019 ]
I believe it does at this time although I have not completed my evaluation of the AVR restrictions. They all seem to be a little nebutalus and understanding one zone after another. I thought that the input source should be a little more than the what was desponded in the manual. I would that the manual was not very helpful and the Zone used could be something useful. Zones from all AVR not very helpful and the material seem different from many sources. The restrictions were as vague as one could be from my ATMOS definition and were not well define anyway. The instructions were okay, But the definitions were not very vague as one could ask. [ Richard Dec 31, 2018 ]
Well, I like it but it is not an indicator that you would. Music is subjective. And it is only as good as the speakers you drive with it. I have polk rti-3/as-4 with svs nsd 12 and its good for anything. :) [ Endel Dec 11, 2018 ]
Rock from CD sounds great. Wi-Fi music is very good depending on station but most is very good and a big improvement over bluetooth. Very happy with unit for cost [ mark Dec 11, 2018 ]
Excellent [ John Dec 11, 2018 ]
I bought the RZ620 to create a 7.1 setup. However, my "great room" is not so great at allowing proper speaker placement for 7.1, so I an using a 5.1 speaker placement (center, 2 fronts, 2 rear and a powered sub-woofer). After running the auto speaker balancing, 5.1 sounds great. Even impresses the neighbors. You should be happy with this unit. [ MARK Nov 21, 2018 ]
Ya. 5.1, 5.2, 5.22 [ Chris Nov 21, 2018 ]
Yes. It would support a 2.1 if that's all you had. I use mine currently as a 5.1.2 for Dolby Atmos. [ TIM Nov 21, 2018 ]
Yes it will. Most new receivers will. [ connie Nov 21, 2018 ]
Indeed it does. I am using it in a 5.1 setup, I have bi-amped my front speakers but you don't need to do that, I just did because I could. [ Tom Nov 21, 2018 ]
I don't believe the receiver itself can play Amazon prime videos. I run prime videos through my SmartTV though, and then run sound through the receiver. [ Bradley Nov 09, 2018 ]
I believe the answer is: not directly. Unless I'm doing it wrong, I can't log into Amazon from the Onkyo using an app or anything. I have to use another smart device (we use our Wii U) to push Amazon content to it. [ Sam Nov 05, 2018 ]
It will provide the sound through ARC when your smart tv plays amazon , if that's what you asking ? By it self it is not a replacement for smart tv, not like WiFi blyeray or Apple TV. It only has WiFi audio . [ Endel Nov 05, 2018 ]
I replaced a Yamaha receiver with the Onkyo TX-RZ620. I run a 5.1 configuration with middle-price- range speakers and sub-woofer. The THX certification says the receiver will come real close to duplicating the sound that the sound engineer designed on their multi-million dollar equipment. My Yamaha was not THX certified so I can't give you a direct comparison. However, I suspect that Onkyo, like Yamaha, is trying real hard to accurately duplicate the intended sound quality, THX or not. Perhaps the folks at Crutchfield can detect a difference between THX and no THX certification, but I don't think I could. I play a lot of really old DVDs, Blu-rays, CDs and FIOS-provided movies. My Onkyo TX-RZ620 does a superb job of distributing the sound. As you might expect, IMHO the quality of sound engineering of the source is more important. Newer movies better than older movies. Blu-rays sound better than DVDs. Blu-rays with excellent sound design will play better than indifferently designed sound tracks. Those differences I do notice. Perhaps my system would do even better with a 7.2 speaker system, but, with a good Blu-ray disk, my 5.1 system provides a very, very good home theater experience (after the speakers are balanced, of course). [ MARK Sep 21, 2018 ]
I might not be the guy to ask as I find thx modes to be lacking in bass. [ CHRISTOPHER Sep 21, 2018 ]
Just keep in mind...if you don't have big enough room,you can't enjoy the THX. (I have small apartment and this is overkill for my neighbors..lol)For me this unit is working perfectly.The sound much better than my old HK unit for sure... [ Peter Sep 20, 2018 ]
No, not at all. Clear powerful amp. Competes nicely with Yamaha sound. staging in surround is good. [ mark Sep 20, 2018 ]

Yes it does. I think that only happens if youre watching TV. Not sure if the volume pops up if the receiver screen is up but I know I've noticed it when I'm watching TV. [ DEREK Jul 30, 2018 ]
Yes, both the remote and the volume on the receiver will show on the TV [ JOHN J Jul 30, 2018 ]

It does [ John Apr 24, 2018 ]
I believe it will but I've only connected my iPhone to it via bt. I downloaded the owners manual from the onkyo website before purchasing which answered questions such as this. [ CHRISTOPHER Apr 23, 2018 ]
I don't know. I would be surprised if it does. It has BT but for input only. [ Endel Apr 23, 2018 ]
