Dynamic Audio Amplification: The TX-RZ620 AV receiver
features Onkyo's Dynamic Audio Amplification with a 7-channel amplifier rated at
100 watts (into 8-ohms, at 20Hz-20kHz, with 0.08%, driving 2 channels). Onkyo's
new Dynamic Audio Amplification technology incorporates a Hi-Current, non-phase
shift amplifier design with discrete output stage circuitry and a H.C.P.S (High
Current Power Supply) capable of driving
4-16Ω speakers with dynamic control, while
producing clear, detailed sound.
- Hi-Current Amp Design w/ Discrete Output Stage: The unique elements of Onkyo's
Dynamic Audio Amplification system comprise high-current, low-impedance
architecture with discrete output stage circuitry & custom audio capacitors
for instantaneous high-current power and precisely control of your
loudspeakers for dynamic, accurate sound.
- Non-Phase-Shift Amplification Circuitry: Onkyo's Wide Range Amp Technology
(WRAT) circuit layout prevents phase shifting by pushing the roll-off point
higher than the listening-level frequency. Amplifying sound without phase
shift creates an uncommonly well-focused and realistic audio image.
- H.C.P.S. (High Current Power Supply): The receiver's
High Current Power Supply (H.C.P.S.) transformer features an isolated power
supply design and high-capacity filter capacitors to deliver large amounts
of power necessary for reproducing the wide dynamics of movie soundtracks
and the detail and clarity of your music.
- Optimum Gain Volume Circuitry: Optimum Gain Volume
Circuitry adjusts the gain so that less than half the amount of attenuation
is needed, ensuring the signal never comes close to the noise floor. This
protects the signal against noise, resulting in a dramatically clearer
- Solid Aluminum Front-Panel: A solid aluminum front-panel aids in
the receiver's anti-resonance performance.
Amplifier Assignment: The 7-channel amplifier can be
configured in a variety of ways to match your type of speaker setup.
- Surround Back (7.1ch): The Onkyo TX-RZ620 provides
7.1ch surround in your main listening area with dedicated Surround Back
- Front Bi-Amp (5.1ch): The Surround-Back/Height speaker
terminals can be reassigned and used along with the Front terminals to
bi-amp the front speakers, providing improved bass & treble performance.
When bi-amping the front speakers the receiver is limited to a 5.1ch speaker
system in the main room (no Surround Back or Front Height speakers)
- Powered Zone 2 (7.1ch + Zone 2): In this configuration,
you can connect Front, Center, Surround, Surround Back, and Zone 2 speakers
to the AV receiver. When Zone 2 is off, all seven channels will be used in
the Main Zone. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the two surround back
(or front height) channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2
and the Main Zone will receive only five channels of power.
- Dolby Atmos (5.1.2ch): The Surround-Back/Front-High
speaker terminals are assigned to power a pair of Front-Height, Rear-Height, Overhead
Ceiling, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers to create 5.1.2ch Dolby Atmos
surround sound. Zone 2 speaker can still be powered by the receiver in the
configuration. When Zone 2 is off, all seven channels will be used in the
Main Zone for Dolby Atmos. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the Dolby
Atmos channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2 and the Main
Zone will receive only five channels of power without Dolby Atmos.
384kHz/32-Bit Hi-Grade DAC: The Onkyo TX-RZ620 utilizes one
premium-quality AK4458 digital-to-analog converter from Asahi Kasei for all
channels. This 384kHz/32-bit DAC implements unique low-distortion filtering
technologies for clear sound, and unlocks the full potential of any audio
format, including compressed, lossless, and hi-res audio (MP3, WMA, WMA
Lossless, FLAC, WAV, OggVorbis, AAC, Apple Lossless, DSD 5.6 MHz, LPCM, and
- Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (Front Channels Only):
Onkyo developed Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) to reassemble the
signal in its original form following processing. Unlike conventional
filters, VLSC removes pulse noise generated in D/A conversion, allowing the
sound wave to be reproduced with extremely high fidelity for a smooth analog
signal. The signal's data is converted between sampling points and joined
with analog vectors in real time to produce a smooth output wave form. The
result is a virtually noiseless, smooth, analog signal that brings out even
the most subtle of nuances in music sources.
- PLL Jitter-Cleaning Circuit Technology: PLL (Phase
Locked Loop) jitter-cleaning circuit technology reduces jitter by comparing
the input and output phases of the digital signal and creating an accurate
clock waveform. This enhances the precision of digital signal processing and
noticeably improves audio quality. Jitter-cleaning technology works both for
digital signals input via HDMI and for digital signals converted from analog
signals inside the receiver itself.
Dual 32-Bit DSP Engines: The Onkyo TX-RZ620 AV receiver employs
powerful and highly accurate 32-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor) engines for
better surround sound reproduction.

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.
- Dolby Atmos: With
Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead,
to fill your home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail, and
depth. The TX-RZ620 has the processing power to run a more enveloping
5.1.2ch Dolby Atmos layout utilizing ceiling mounted or Dolby Atmos-enabled
speakers (sold separately). A 5.1.2ch speaker configuration is based upon a
traditional 5.1 speaker layout complemented by 2 overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled
- Dolby Surround: Dolby Surround offers an enhanced cinema experience to your 2ch or
multichannel movie soundtracks using your existing 5.1ch, 7.1ch or Dolby
Atmos speaker setup. Dolby Surround enhances audio definition by improving
the spatial dimension and overall audio definition of movie soundtracks. It
does this by using four distinct surround zones that provide greater control
over the exact placement of each detail in a movie sound track, so audio can
be matched more accurately to the video on screen; this means more depth and
greater realism for your movies. As a result, individual sounds are clearer
and more distinct. It also improves the surround sound experience across the
entire theater by widening the listening "sweet spot".
- DTS:X: DTS:X will be
enabled through an online firmware update coming later this year.
DTS:X is the next generation object-based, multi-dimensional audio
technology from DTS. Unbound from channels, DTS:X conveys the fluid movement
of sound to create an incredibly rich, realistic and immersive soundscape -
in front of, behind, beside and above the audience - more accurately than
ever before. DTS:X offers the ability to automatically adapt the audio to
the speaker layout that best fits your space.
- DTS Neural:X: DTS Neural:X
will be enabled through an online firmware update coming later this year. DTS:X incorporates Neural:X, the latest spatial remapping
technology from DTS, which provides a fully immersive output for all types
of source content; this includes DTS bitstreams and non-encoded (PCM) data.
Neural:X delivers a thrilling sense of immersive sound to your speaker
layout regardless of the original source format.
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
Onkyo Original DSP Modes: Onkyo's Original DSP Modes,
combined with Dolby Digital & DTS processing, produce more realistic, powerful
sound effects for your movie and music sound tracks based on the type of content
and your home theater setup. You can choose from the following:
- Orchestra: Suitable for classical or operatic music.
This mode emphasizes the surround channels in order to widen the sound
image, and simulates the natural reverberation of a large hall.
- Studio-Mix: Suitable for rock or pop music. Listening
to music in this mode creates a lively sound field with a powerful acoustic
image, like being at a club or rock concert.
- TV Logic: Suitable for TV shows produced in a TV studio. This
mode enhances the surround effects to the entire sound to give clarity to
voices and create a realistic acoustic image.
- Unplugged: Suitable for acoustic instruments, vocals and jazz.
This mode emphasizes the front stereo image, giving the impression of being
right in front of the stage.
- Multichannel (Multich)/Game:
Multichannel mode is suitable for playing sources recorded in multichannel
PCM. The receiver also offers four different Gaming modes -
RPG, Action, Rock, and Sports.
- Stereo/All Channel Stereo (AllCh Stereo): In Stereo
mode, sound is output from the front left and right speakers and subwoofer.
In All Channel Stereo Mode, stereo sound is output from all speakers - ideal
for background music.
- Mono/Full Mono: In Mono mode, when the input signal is
analog or PCM, the left and right front speakers output the sound in
monaural. In Full Mono mode, all speakers output the same sound in mono, so
the sound you hear is the same regardless of where you are within the
- Theater-Dimensional (T-D): In this mode, you can enjoy
a virtual playback of multichannel surround sound even with only two or
three speakers. This works by controlling how sounds reach the listener's
left and right ears
Direct Mode: In Direct mode, audio from the input source is
output without surround-sound processing. This mode delivers pure sound with
minimum sound quality adjustment and filtration.
Audio Enhancements: The Onkyo TX-RZ620 receiver provides
various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every
- CinemaFilter: The CinemaFilter softens overly
bright movie soundtracks. Movie soundtracks are typically mixed for a large
theater (relative to your home theater) with lots of soft seats and thick
curtains on the walls. Home theater settings often lack these high frequency
absorbing wall treatments, making the soundtrack sound too bright.
CinemaFilter accounts for this and for many movies sounds more natural at
- Music Optimizer: The Music Optimizer function enhances
the sound quality of compressed music files. The Music Optimizer function
only works with PCM digital audio input signals with a sampling rate below
48kHz, analog input signals, and Bluetooth audio.
- Late Night Feature: The Late Night feature limits the
dynamic range of Dolby Digital recordings. Limiting the dynamic range makes
it easier to find a volume that ensures the quiet sounds are not too quiet
and the loud sounds are not too loud for night time listening. This allows
you to comfortably listen to without the need to constantly adjust the
volume to keep from waking family/neighbors. The choices are: Off, Low, and
High. This feature only works with Dolby Digital Encoded software and the
depth of the feature will vary based on the individual software package.
Bass Management: The Onkyo AV receiver offers Tone Control, Phase Matching Bass technology,
and a Double Bass feature to get the most bass impact out of your
- Tone Controls: You can independently adjust the Bass
(90Hz) and Treble (7.5kHz) of the receiver's Front L/R channels from -10 to
The receiver also provides independent Bass and Treble control for Zone 2.
- Phase Matching Bass: Onkyo's Phase-Matching Bass
optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. This means
that powerful bass plays back with clear vocals; it doesn't overpower them.
- Double Bass: You can also activate the Double Bass
function in order to boost bass output even more by feeding bass sounds to
the front left/right speakers, center-channel, and powered subwoofer.
Volume Setup: The Onkyo AV receiver provides the following
- IntelliVolume: With IntelliVolume, you can set the
input level for each input (+/-12dB) selector individually. This is useful
if one of your source components is louder or quieter than the others. This
function does not work in Zone 2.
- Maximum Volume: Use this feature to set the receiver's
maximum volume level. This feature is useful to avoid turning the volume too
loud by mistake. You can set the Max Volume from 30-79 (max), or Off

can support 4K/60 Hz Ultra-HD video, HDCP 2.2 compatibility, 4:4:4 color
sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and BT.2020 Wide Color Gamut.
- 4K/60Hz: The TX-RZ620 supports up to 4K (3840x2160
pixels) video @ 60 frames per second on
all of its HDMI inputs and outputs. It will also pass a 480p, 720p,
1080i, or 1080p video signals via HDMI (not compatible with 480i video
- HDCP 2.2: The receivers HDMI inputs and HDMI
outputs support HDCP
2.2, which fully complies with the latest copyright protection standard for
4K video transmission.
- 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: The receiver's
HDMI inputs and HDMI monitor output support RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2, and YCbCr 4:2:0
color subsampling (@ 60Hz or 50Hz). With 4:4:4 color subsampling, luminance
(brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate; resulting in
an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image
with more colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail. HDMI inputs 4-8
only support 4K 60/50Hz @ YCbCr 4:2:0.
- Wide Color Gamut (BT.2020): The BT.2020 color standard
delivers a much wider color gamut and represents about 75% of the total
visual color spectrum, while the current Rec. 709 color standard selected as
the color space for HDTVs and early generation 4K Ultra HDTVs covers only
35% of the total visual color spectrum.
Note: Use a premium high-speed 18Gbps HDMI cable for the best
HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR (High Dynamic Range) video provides enhanced picture
quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and
bright parts of an image. HDR reproduces a greater dynamic range of
luminosity or brightness levels, creating greater contrast. This increased
contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and
shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. This
receiver supports three HDR formats - HDR 10, HLG, & Dolby Vision.
- HDR 10: HDR 10 is an open standard and currently the
most popular HDR format on the market. It supports 10-bit color and 1,000
nits. It uses static metadata at the start of a movie to tell the receiver
and your TV that the video content is encoded using HDR.
- HLG: HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) is primarily designed for
live video feed and over-the-air broadcasts. It uses no pre-encoded metadata
and is backwards compatible with SDR. HLG's native compatibility allows much
of today's existing SDR infrastructure to be re-used for HDR in the future.
- Dolby Vision: Unlike HDR 10 which contains static
metadata and HLG which uses no metadata, Dolby Vision utilizes dynamic
metadata which adjusts brightness, color, and contrast automatically for
each scene. Dynamic metadata carries information that maps every image to
your TV's display capabilities, so you see more of what the content creator
intended. Dolby Vision supports 12-bit color and 10,000 nits.
Analog Video-to-HDMI Conversion:
Analog composite and component video signals (480i only) input to the receiver
will be converted to HDMI signals and then output from the receiver via its main
HDMI monitor output to your TV. The resolution remains the same and is not

- ARC (Audio Return Channel): The receiver's main HDMI output features ARC (Audio Return Channel). This feature allows audio to be
sent from your compatible HDTV to your receiver through the same HDMI cable
already being used to send audio and video to your HDTV. This eliminates the
need for extra cables connected to your television.
- Deep Color & x.v.Color Support: The AV receiver
supports Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color
range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike,
- Auto Lip-Sync: The Lip-Sync function can automatically
synchronize HDMI audio and video (for any HDMI jack) that has gotten out of
sync due to the complex digital video processing being performed by your
HDMI-compatible TV. With HDMI Lip-Sync, the audio delay required to
synchronize the audio and video is calculated and applied automatically by
the AV receiver. You can also manually correct the audio delay from 0 (no
delay) to 400 milliseconds; in 10 millisecond steps.
HDMI Through: When enabling the HDMI Through function,
regardless of whether the AV receiver is "O" or in "Standby", both audio/video
streams from an HDMI input will be output to your television, via the receiver
HDMI monitor output. You can select between three HDMI Through modes.
