The RZ Series difference

Onkyo's premium RZ Series home theater receivers deliver music and movie soundtracks with detail and accuracy. The 'RZ830 is constructed with quality components like large custom capacitors for consistently great sound throughout the frequency range. Its advanced amp circuit layout prevents phase shifting, for a clearly focused audio image and reduced distortion even at high volume levels.

Plenty of wireless music choices

The 'RZ830 gives you all kinds of options for wireless listening. Built-in Wi-Fi gives you access to popular streaming services like Spotify® and Pandora®, along with tracks you have stored on your networked computer. Apple® AirPlay® lets you stream from compatible iOS® devices, and Bluetooth adds even more streaming music options.

Use the Onkyo Controller app to control streaming from your Apple or Android™ device.

Chromecast built-in and Google Home voice control

Chromecast built-in lets you use your phone, tablet, or computer to stream music to the receiver from over 100 audio apps. With a Google Home voice assistant or the Google Home app, you can use your voice to control playback and connect with other Chromecast built-in devices for wireless music throughout your home.

Works with Sonos

The 'RZ830 also works great as a component in your Sonos wireless multi-room music system. Just add a Sonos Connect and you can send any music or audio source from the Sonos app to the receiver. It'll even automatically turn on and switch to the correct input when you fire it up in the Sonos app.

DTS Play-Fi for a flexible wireless multi-room music system

DTS Play-Fi gives you the freedom to mix and match Play-Fi devices from different brands. Use the Play-Fi app to queue up songs, play and pause music, and control multiple Play-Fi speakers and components throughout your home.

Customizable speaker connections

The 'RZ830 has outputs for 11 speakers, allowing for different home theater and wired multi-room music configurations (just remember, its nine amplifier channels can't power more than nine speakers at once). You can use all nine channels in a 5.1.4 or 7.1.2 Dolby Atmos or DTS:X system, or you can go with a more modest surround sound setup and repurpose the extra channels in one of a few ways.

The receiver's "Height 1" speaker outputs can be used to bi-amp your front left and right speakers for more powerful sound. Or you can connect a pair of speakers for stereo sound in another room. If you're happy with 5.2-channel surround sound in your living room, you can have two wired stereo music zones in other rooms.

You can also connect a stereo receiver or amplifier through line-level Zone 2 and Zone 3 connections and use the 'RZ830 as a preamp, so you can use all nine channels for surround sound in your home theater and still get stereo sound in up to two additional rooms. Whole House Audio mode lets you turn on and synchronize all audio zones with a push of a button.

    32-Bit Architecture: The Onkyo TX-RZ830 AV receiver utilizes 32-Bit architecture with Dual 32-Bit DSP Engines and a 384kHz/32-Bit Hi-Grade DAC for exceptional sound quality.

    • Dual 32-Bit DSP Engines: The Onkyo TX-RZ830 employs powerful and highly accurate 32-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor) engines for better surround sound reproduction.
    • 384kHz/32-Bit Hi-Grade DAC: The AV receiver 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 practically any audio format; including compressed, lossless, and hi-res audio (MP3, WMA, AAC, Apple Lossless, FLAC, WAV, DSD, LPCM, and Dolby TrueHD).

    Advanced Circuitry: The Onkyo TX-RZ830 incorporates a variety of advanced circuitry to eliminate jitter & distortion for cleaner, clearer sound reproduction.

    • 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 for S/PDIF audio signals only.

    AccuEQ Advance Calibration w/ AccuReflex: The TX-RZ830 incorporates AccuEQ Advance calibration technology and comes with an auto calibration microphone. AccuEQ Advance calibration technology reveals the true potential of your speakers by eliminating standing waves from your listening space using multipoint measurements. These acoustic peaks distort the audio image and prevent your loudspeakers from voicing the sound as their designers intended. AccuEQ Advance also utilizes Partial Band Equalization and only corrects frequency response below a certain point, leaving high-order harmonics untouched - so your speakers are free to reproduce the emotion in the recording faithfully and naturally. In addition, AccuEQ Advance includes three memory presets you can use to save your own customized EQ settings, perhaps tailored to suit different content such as movies, music, or games.

    • Speaker Measurement: The first-round of AccuEQ Advance measurements set the distance, sound pressure level, and crossover of your speakers. Distance and level calibration ensure all channels are treated equally. Crossover measurement selects the correct point to roll off low-frequency sound to the subwoofer for seamless speaker integration.
    • Room Measurements: In the second round of AccuEQ Advance measurements, your room's sonic characteristics are evaluated. Using this information, AccuEQ Advance is able to prevent standing waves from forming by adjusting frequency response. AccuEQ Advance even listens and compensates for the subtlest background noise (such as the hum of an HVAC) to ensure a higher degree of measurement precision.
    • AccuReflex Measurements: AccuEQ Advance also incorporates AccuReflex technology to align the phase of up-firing "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.

    Note: You can choose to bypass AccuEQ Advance for your front speakers or all speakers, and manually set the distance, crossover, EQ, and level of each speaker.

    THX Certified Select: 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 to satisfy THX requirements. THX spends 40-60 hours testing over 2000 data points ensuring that the receiver is capable of meeting rigorous audio and video performance standards for reference level, distortion-free playback. THX delivers superior sound quality for movie, music, and gaming soundtracks through the use of the following advanced technologies and listening modes.

    • ASA (Advanced Speaker Array): ASA is a technology patented by THX to provide a broad surround sound experience by adjusting the side and back surround speaker sounds respectively. When installing the surround back speakers, first select the distance between the two surround back speakers in the THX Audio settings. This setting optimizes the surround sound environment.
    • Adaptive Decorrelation: In a movie theater, a large number of surround speakers help create an enveloping surround sound experience. If a home theater only has two sidewall surround speakers, the surround speakers may sound similar to headphones lacking spaciousness and envelopment. Surround sounds will also collapse toward the closet speaker as you move away from the middle seating position. Adaptive Decorrelation slightly changes one surround channel's time and phase relationship with respect to the other surround experience as in a movie theater using only two rear speakers.
    • RE-EQ & Timbre Matching: Many movie soundtracks are mixed in studios for playback in large cinema auditoriums with an array of speakers. When played on home systems, they may appear abrasive and edgy. Re-EQ establishes a more accurate tonal balance when enjoying movies in your home. Your ears hear different tonal qualities in sounds coming from different directions. Timbre Matching restores the frequency balance between your front and surround speakers ensuring seamless and smooth panning between the front to back of the room.
    • Boundary Gain Compensation (BGC) & THX Loudness Plus: Sitting near a wall may result in distorted bass response. BGC corrects the way low frequency sound is perceived when seated near a wall. This results in a more accurate bass response. THX Loudness Plus is a volume control technology that automatically adjusts the front-to-back speaker level relationship as you turn the volume down. With THX Loudness Plus home theater audiences can now experience surround sound at any volume level.
    • Listening Modes: Choose between 4 THX Listening Modes - THX Cinema, THX Game, THX Music, and THX Surround EX. THX Cinema recreates the ambiance of the movie theater by positioning the 5.1, 7.1and immersive mixes to submerse you in the movie's soundtrack. THX Game distributes the sound effects and dialogue generated by the game engine by placing the audio from a 5.1, 7.1 or immersive mix to the appropriate "action" location - creating 360-degree gaming experience. THX Music emulates the original studio environment for the 5.1, 7.1 or immersive mix for an accurate and increased sense of spaciousness and localization - placing you directly in the recording session. THX Surround EX decodes the third surround channel from the traditional two surround channels to create a more immersive entertainment experience.
    Note: THX Certified Select is suitable for medium sized rooms, up to 2,000 cubic feet in size, with a 10-12 foot viewing distance from the screen.

    Compatible Digital Audio Formats: The AV receiver supports the following stereo & multichannel digital audio formats through its HDMI jacks and optical/coax digital inputs.

    Digital Audio Connector Audio Signal Type Audio Signal Format
    HDMI (7 Inputs/2 Outputs) High Definition Audio Bitstream Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD

The TX-RZ830 also supports Dolby Surround & DTS Neural:X that enhances two-channel and multichannel content and decoding formats with immersive surround sound.

    • Dolby Atmos: The Onkyo AV receiver will enhance properly designed systems with Dolby Atmos where sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill the home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail and depth. The TX-RZ830 has the processing power to run a more enveloping 7ch, 9ch, or 11ch Dolby Atmos layout using a 5.1.2, 5.1.4, 7.1.2, or 7.1.4* configuration with ceiling mounted, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers (sold separately). *A 7.1.4 configuration requires an additional power amplifier to power the Surround Back speakers.
    • 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.
    • 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 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.

    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 listening room.
    • 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

    Audiophile Listening Modes: The Onkyo TX-RZ830 offers two audiophile listening modes which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher sound quality performance. 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. In Pure Audio mode, the display and video circuitry are turned off, minimizing possible noise sources for the ultimate in high-fidelity audio reproduction.

    Audio Enhancements: The Onkyo TX-RZ830 receiver provides various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.

    • 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 home.
    • 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 and Double Bass feature to get the most bass impact out of your system. You can independently adjust the Bass (20Hz) and Treble (20kHz) of the receiver's Front L/R channels from -10 to +10 dB. 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.

    ARC + eARC (via available Firmware Update): ARC (Audio Return Channel) allows the receiver's HDMI monitor output allows audio to be sent from your compatible TV to the 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. The receiver will also support eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) via an available firmware update. eARC will support uncomprerssed audio formats like Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, & DTS HD Master Audio - where standard ARC was limited to Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, DTS HD, and PCM.

    Volume & Level Setup: The Onkyo AV receiver provides the following volume & level settings.

    • 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 or 3.
    • Maximum Volume: Use this feature to set the receiver's maximum volume level for the Main Zone, Zone 2, and Zone 3. This feature is useful to avoid turning the volume too loud by mistake. You can set the Max Volume from 50-99 (max), or Off (disabled).
    • Power On Volume: Use this feature to set the volume level when the power is turned on in the Mainz Zone, Zone 2, and Zone 3. You can choose between Last (same as the volume when the unit was turned off), Min (0), or 1-99.
    • Mute Level: Set the volume lowered from the listening volume when "Mute" is selected. Choose from 0, -40dB, or -20 dB.
    • Headphone Level: With this setting, you can specify the headphone volume (+/-12dB) relative to the main volume. This is useful if there's a volume difference between your speakers and your headphones.

    Analog Audio Outputs: The Onkyo TX-RZ830 is outfitted with the following analog audio outputs.

    • Binding-Post Speaker Terminals: There are binding-post terminals for all speaker connections - Front, Center, Surround, Surround Back, Height, and Zone 2. The binding post terminals will accept bare-wire, pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single only). Use 4- to 16-ohm speakers.
    • 11.2ch Pre-Outs: The Onkyo TX-RZ830 features 11.2ch pre-outs (Front, Center, Surround, Surround Back, Height 1, Height 2, and Dual Subwoofer) for connection of an external power amplifier or amplifiers. The pre-outs are variable. The dual sub outputs are wired in parallel and share the same input signal (they are not discrete).
    • Headphones: When headphones are plugged into the full-size 1/4" jack on the front panel, all the speakers are automatically muted.

    Phono Input: The TX-RZ830 has a discrete low-noise phono pre-amp and is outfitted with Phono (MM) input for connection of a turntable with a moving magnet cartridge so you can enjoy listening to your vinyl records. There is also a ground screw terminal.

    Front-Panel Aux Input: The TX-RZ830 is fitted with a front-panel 3.5mm Aux input for connecting a portable audio player.

    Video Section

    HDMI 2.0b: The Onkyo TX-RZ830 has seven HDMI 2.0b inputs (6 rear/1 front) and dual HDMI 2.0b outputs. Thanks to the latest HDMI 2.0b specification, the receiver 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-RZ830 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 signals).
    • HDCP 2.2: The receivers HDMI inputs and HDMI monitor output 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.
    • 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 4K/HDR performance.

    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 upscaled.

    Dual HDMI Outputs: The dual HDMI outputs can simultaneously output the same audio/video signal to two TVs, or you can assign the second HDMI output to Zone 2 to display a different HDMI source (1-2-3 inputs) in another room; video is output at the resolution supported by both TVs.

    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.

    • Auto: Detects the signal and automatically selects the input sources.
    • Source: Selects the HDMI input source for which the HDMI Through function in enabled.
    • Last: The HDMI Through function is activated on the input source selected at the time of setting the AV receiver to the "standby" mode.

    Other HDMI Features: The TX-RZ830 AV receiver's HDMI connectivity also offers 3D video pass-through, Deep Color & x.v. Color support, as well as an auto LipSync function.

    • 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, vibrant picture.
    • 3D-Ready: All HDMI jacks will accept 3D video from your 3D-ready Blu-ray player and output the video signal in 3D to your 3D-ready flat-panel television.
    • 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.

    Analog Video Inputs: The receiver features two composite video inputs and two component video inputs which support 480i video signals only. All analog video input signals are converted to digital and sent via HDMI to your TV at 480i (no upscaling). The component video input is not capable of high-definition video.

    Video Select: It is possible to play audio and video from different sources. For example, you can play audio via Bluetooth and video from your BD/DVD player. This function is only effective when an input with audio only (Network, Bluetooth, or Tuner) has been selected initially.

Whenever you start playing music back from your Sonos app and the Onkyo receiver is selected, the receiver will automatically turn on and switch to the correct input.
    • Compatibility: The Onkyo receiver can be used with the Sonos One, Play:1, Play:3, Play:5 or any combination of these speakers (all sold separately). You can even use the Onkyo receiver with a Playbar or Playbase (sold separately) that is located in a different room. Just remember that you need to have a Sonos Connect to connect the Onkyo receiver to the Sonos multiroom audio system.
    Note: Click here to learn even more about Onkyo and Sonos working together to give you the ultimate home theater and multiroom audio experience.

    FlareConnect MultiRoom Audio: FlareConnect powered by Blackfire mirrors network audio sources and any external analog source playing through the receiver (from streaming audio to vinyl) on optional FlareConnect/Blackfire wireless speakers (such as the Onkyo NCP-302, sold separately). Sampling rates up to 48 kHz are supported. FlareConnect powered by Blackfire is stable, fast, and easy to control with Onkyo's Controller app for Apple iOS and Android.

    Note: Onkyo cannot guarantee the compatibility with other devices featuring FlareConnect or Blackfire.

    Remote & App Control

    Onkyo Controller App: The Onkyo Controller app (for Apple iOS 8.0+ & Android OS 4.0.3) features an intuitive, user-friendly interface that allows you to conveniently operate the Onkyo receiver from your compatible Apple iOS or Android device. This app not only has the usual remote control functions, it also has a multiroom functionality for Zone 2 and wireless multiroom audio setups.

    • Remote Control: You can operate general control functions (play/stop, control the volume, select the input source, etc.) from your compatible smartphone or tablet.
    • Source Device Playback: Operation of connected products (like a Blu-Ray player or TV) that are connected to the receiver via HDMI.
    • Streaming Audio: Lets you play audio from built-in music streaming services (such as Pandora, Spotify, TIDAL), the music library on your Apple iOS or Android device, and your Windows PC or other DLNA-compatible server. You can also access music from Bluetooth and USB source devices.
    • Multiroom Audio: Provides control over Zone 2 and wireless multiroom audio (such as FireConnect by Blackfire).

    Google Home Voice Commands: With a Google Home voice-activated speaker (sold separately - see Accessories Tab) and the Google Home App (for Apple iOS 8.0+ or Android OS 4.2+), you can use your voice to control select functions of the Onkyo AV receiver. With a simple voice command, you can play music from Chromecast compatible music services by artist, song, genre, album, playlist, mood or activity. You can also turn up the volume, skip to the next track, or stop the music - all without lifting a finger.

    IR Remote: The receiver comes with an IR remote control for wireless operation of this receiver and other HDMI-connected sources (via HDMI CEC).

    HDMI Control: This function allows HDMI-CEC compatible components or RIHD-compatible components connected via HDMI to be controlled with the TX-RZ830. The AV receiver offers the following HDMI-CEC controls.

    • The AV receiver will enter Standby mode when the power of the TV is turned to Standby.
    • You can set on the menu screen of the TV to either output the audio from the speakers connected to the AV receiver, or from the speakers of the TV.
    • It is possible to output the audio/video from the antenna or from the input jack of the TV from the speakers connected to the AV receiver.
    • Input to the AV receiver can be selected with the remote controller of the TV.
    • Operations such as volume adjustment or similar for the AV receiver can be performed from the remote controller of the TV.

    Custom Control Integration: The TX-RZ830 offers custom control integration. The TX-RZ830 features a 12V/100mA trigger output (3.5mm) to power on an external component with a 12-volt trigger input, and an IR input (3.5mm) for remote control range extension. It also supports IP (web) control and RS-232, enabling configuration via PC and integration into a home automation system.

    Convenience Features

    On-Screen Menu w/ Setup Assistance (HDMI only): The Onkyo AV receiver offers an on-screen (GUI) menu system through its HDMI output. The simple on-screen display combines text and graphics that make setup and other operations extremely easy. The initial setup assistant takes you step-by-step through speaker configuration, source connection, remote programming, and network connection.

    Note: Initial setup requires that the receiver be connected to your TV via HDMI for display of the on-screen menu. Many of the receiver's setup functions can only be found via the on-screen menu and not the front-panel display.

    Gapless Playback: Many live and classical albums have no gaps in the music. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files. This provides playback with no interruptions, the way it was meant to be heard. Compatible with WAV, FLAC, and ALAC music files via USB.

    Name Edit: You can enter a custom name for each individual input selector and radio preset for easy identification. When entered, the custom name will appear on the display. This function cannot be used for the AM/FM, Network, USB, and Bluetooth input selectors.

    Display Dimmer: The front-panel display brightness has three settings - Dim, Dimmer, and Normal.

    Auto Standby & Sleep Timer: The receiver features a programmable Auto Standby function & programmable Sleep Timer. The AV receiver will automatically go into Standby mode, if there is no operation for 20 minutes with no audio/video signal input. From the remote, you can set the unit to automatically turn off after 30, 60, or 90 minutes.

    Firmware Updates: Future firmware updates are available from the Onkyo website through the receiver's Network or USB connection. Visit Onkyo's online Download Center for the latest firmware updates.

When both receiver volume is set to -60db, my old Onkyo sounds much louder, so I have to set the volume on this at -50db. The RZ830 has a very good sounding bass, it will rumble your house.

    You will not hear a difference of only 10 watts unless you are running it at max all of the time and your speakers are not efficient. Also you need to figure out what you are doing with it, as in only listening to music, watching movies, etc. For price this unit is hard to beat.

    Let me add to my past answer. Looking at the rear image on line, this is not an auto switching power supply. To use 220v-240v it would need the third lug, or ground lug on the power supply. You would need to order the "other" version.

    The manual lists North American as 120v, 60hz. Others are 220-240v. I do not know if this is an auto switching power supply, once installed I don't have easy access to the rear of the unit.

    Speakers list max power handling, not minimum. Never try to exceed that max power rating. Most times the audio signal is way below that 120 watt, 120 watts would only be used during moments of loud sounds. Cannons, explosions and the such to move the speakers a distance within their coils.

    Yes it will Klipsch speakers don't need the full wattage to run. I have some Klipsch in my set up they sound great! The Klipsch where much louder then my Polk Audio speakers but Receiver self compensates for it with self setup! Best receiver I have ever owned hands down and the price is unbeatable.
    [ Eli  May 17, 2019 ]
    A
    Yes, it'll run those speakers as the speakers are max RMS 150watts. Really to get to that power level and clean power you may go to a dedicated amp as most home receivers on the higher end peak around 130watts per channel. My polks recommend up to 250watts rms and this onkyo amp is driving them just beautifully.
    [ Richard  May 17, 2019 ]
    A
    You can always use more of the channels to double up on your speakers. I'm a little surprised the Klipsch are so inefficient. Perhaps that is their max power handing capability rather than what is needed to run them?

    I am building a garage and want to make it my "zone 2". Everything says that if I go with zone 2, it turns my main to a 5.2. I have a two channel amp. Is there a way to run the amp so that I can keep my 7.2 in my main and power zone 2?
    [ Adam  Apr 13, 2019 ]
    5 answers
    A
    I'm doing 7.1.4 for my theater room and a 2-channel zone 2 - based on reading through the manual, it looks like this is possible as long as you have an additional amplifier and use a the pre-amp outputs on the TX-RZ830 to connect a separate amp for 2 of the speakers. The manual suggests using the amp for surround back - not sure why those specifically, but I suspect you could use the amp for any 2 speakers. I haven't been able to test my setup yet because I still need to install my in-wall speakers, but I can say that I successfully wired it up in the way I described.

    Onkyo RZ-830 is a 9.2 channel receiver. Hook up your garage two speakers to 2 of the 9.2 channel receiver and you still have your 7.2 channel option. You could also take your 2 channel receiver and plug it in the Pre amp on the Onkyo that would work as well , probably better actually..
    [ Crawford  Apr 24, 2019 ]

    Hello Aaron, I apoligize I wouldn't be able to answer your question. I didn't purchase the Logitech Hub. I'm sure one of the excellent Crutchfield experts can help.

    Q
    So on first set I set it 6ohms but I need it to be at 8ohms. Now the receiver only gives me the option of 4ohms or 6ohms! How do I get it to give my 8ohms option again?

    Page 133 of the English manual addresses this. There are only 2 settings. 6ihms for 6 and above and 4 ohms if any speakers hav an impedance of 4-6 ohms. Hopefully all your speakers are the same. Not sure what to do if you had some 6 or above and some below.

    Mine will not give the option of 8 ohm either.

    Q
    Does this receiver allow firmware updates? If so, any idea if future updates will enable Amazon music and Alexa voice control? These are two things I need in my new receiver.

    It's a new reciever, so any plans about an upgrade are up in the air, but it does support voice controls through Google home and Google assistant.

    This receiver does allow firmware updates like for enhanced ARC for HDMI on televisions. But I don't recall anything about Amazon music and Alexa voice in the support area. Ken

    I guess I got lucky with my previous Onkyo the TX-NR818 , which I still have (exercise room duty). Needed to upgrade to 4K. So far, no handshake issues with Xbox One X, Roku 4K, Vizio 2018 P75 streaming apps (Netflix, etc) and Spectrum cable. Only have had for a week but so far so good.

    Q
    Can you hook up a separate equalizer to this amp?
    [ Charles  Feb 23, 2019 ]

    A
    This receiver does not have a monitor loop to add an equalizer to it. But it does have preamp outputs. This means you could use the preamp outputs to connect the equalizer, and then connect a separate amp to the outputs on the equalizer My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul
