Overview

Our take on the Onkyo TX-RZ610

The Onkyo TX-RZ610 works with the latest 4K TVs and Blu-ray players, delivering multidimensional sound to match the stunning Ultra HD picture quality. We set one up for a Dolby Atmos demo, and there's only one word to describe the sound: big. This receiver filled our spacious training room with powerful, chest-thumping sound. So it's safe to say it'll blow the roof off your home theater — in a good way. The setup was a breeze. Once we ran the AccuEQ speaker calibration (a quick, easy process using the included microphone), all the surround effects sounded perfectly dialed in. Dolby Atmos added an extra layer of realism to our movie demo, giving a feeling of full-on immersion.

Easy wireless music streaming

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 'RZ610. You can also take advantage of free internet radio and subscription-based music services like Spotify® and Pandora®. Use the Onkyo Remote app to control streaming from your phone or tablet. Bluetooth lets you stream music from a compatible device directly to the receiver, and Apple AirPlay lets you stream music from a compatible Apple device or from any computer with iTunes®.

Geared toward great sound

Outstanding audio performance is an integral part of the 'RZ610's design. 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.

Music in two rooms

The 'RZ610 has outputs for nine speakers, allowing for flexible speaker configurations (receiver can power a maximum of seven channels at once). 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. Relax to your favorite tunes on the patio while the rest of the family takes in a movie with surround sound in the living room. You can also connect a stereo receiver or amplifier through line-level Zone 2 connections and use the 'RZ610 as a preamp, for full 7.2-channel surround sound in your home theater plus 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 Remote app to control playback in different zones from anywhere in the house.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I'm still leaning how to use all of the settings on the unit. I'm very impressed with how the unit sounds with just the 4 speakers I had from my last reciever/tuner. I do wish I would have gotten the surround sound speaker system Dexter had told me about. Not sure if Crutchfield will have a special on them again or not. Guess I will have to wait to fine out. My 4 speakers work pretty nice, but I can see it will be awesome once I get a surround sound system.

    Pros: Awesome the way unit sets it's self up on the speaker settings.

    Cons: A lot of stuff for an older guy to learn how to set up. Just have to keep playing with the buttons.

    Love it!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The Onkyo TX-RZ610 replaces a Sony STR-DN850, which is less than three years old. I bought the RZ610 because of its up to date features, style, price and American ownership. Their was a great review in the Nov 2016 issue of Sound and Vision Magazine - yes I still read the paper one! I won't go into the details of this receivers features. Except you can play FM audio while you watch tv/video at the same time, just like in the good old days. My hope is that you can do that with a CD player, which I plan on buying either way. The RZ610 is easy to set up and sounds great. My system consists of a Sony BDP-S7200 UHD 4k Blu-Ray/CD, Samsung 55" curved UHD 4k monitor, Definitive Technology Studio Monitor 55 front speakers and the Onkyo TX-RZ610 Receiver. All of my interconnects are AudioQuest w/SVSound speaker cables.

    Jeff from Forsyth, IL on 2/6/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have had this product for about 1month now and I am very satisfied. I was recommended this by the Crutchfield team as an upgrade to my old Yamaha because it was on sale. I am so glad I got it. Great product. Powers my Definitive Tech 800 system without a problem. It can get LOUD, and it is awesome. I haven't hooked up the zone 2, but am looking forward to trying that out later. Set up was easy, good interface, easy to use remote. I really like the network wifi so I can now airplay my music from my phone to the receiver and bypass having to use my appleTV.

    Pros: easy to set up remote is straight forward lots of HDMI inputs Wifi Ready

    Cons: none that I can think of

    Crutchfield is awesome! Received our cool new receiver on time, along with some free cable labels which came into use for me immediately (I'm a cord freak, they have to be organized!)! Got some great, quick and knowledgeable support and had it all working in no time with our new Polk speakers (also from Crutchfield). Lovin' my Crutchfield!!

    Pros: Great price. Easy setup, ARC works with our older Sharp Aquos TV, and great sound with equalizer and mode options.

    Cons: ??? ? Not a one.

    Very good performance

    David from Fort Worth, TX on 1/29/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is my second onkyo receiver, and I hope it lasts longer than the last one (it just up and died and wouldn't turn on, and it wasn't the fuse). Overall performance is very good. It was harder to set up for my home theater than the older TX-NR646 was. I guess that's because it's got a few more features, like the 4K. It took me some time to find the sound I needed from the unit. I couldn't get the bass I was looking for until I added a second HDMI cable between the unit and the TV. It apparently needed bothe and ARC pass through and the SUB attached. This wasn't mentioned in the directions.

    Pros: delivers great sound, 4K ready for 4K tv and dvd player

    Cons: User interface could be easier to navigate (on-screen settings), instructions are not clearly stated. unit sits higher than older unit

    Terrific Receiver

    Randal from Cincinnati, OH on 1/29/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Onkyo receiver is outstanding. Easy to set-up, reliable and get control over the treble and bass settings. I purchased this to replace a Sony receiver and have no regrets.

    Pros: Easy to program. Reliable Get control of the bass and treble. Easy to switch between selecting sound/room options.

    Cons: None

    Great Feature set, Easy set up

    Jess from Oakland Park, FL on 1/25/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    For the money it would be hard to beat the combination of features and quality of this receiver. I replaced a very good Yamaha unit that, unfortunately, was too old to pass 4K signal. For my use I don't think I could have made a better choice. Set up was really very easy and the on-screen menus were more than enough to get the unit set up and working. Overall, maybe it took 15 minutes and a lot of that was me playing with stuff. For the more detailed settings Onkyo offers an online "advanced" manual. It was easy to find, read, and implement. The unit does a great job of passing the 4K signal so we can (finally!) see the picture quality we paid for. I think the audio reproduction is "brighter" than the Yamaha but still very faithful to the content when I listen to music I know well. Lastly, for the price that Crutchfield is offing, I don't think there is a better deal to be had.

    Pros: ease of setup. Hard to know how it could be much simpler.

    Cons: Volume scale is displayed as 0-100 instead of db. Nor really a drawback, just took a bit of getting used to. Unit sits a bit higher than some so if you have clearance issues that may be a concern.

    Awesome reciever

    Ruben from Juncos, PR on 1/24/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    It is just what I wanted. I can't ask for more at that price. Anything better will only be more speakers options, but other than that is a all-you-can-ask-for equipment. Very please with quality and craftmanship.

    Pros: 8 HDMI inputs 2 outs 7.2 and second zone Elegant desing

    Cons: Remote lacks video control.

    sound and picture wonderful

    Corey from Saugatuck, MI on 1/22/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have never had such a feature rich product that was this easy to set up and enjoy. Sound is fantastic, and the fact that it just works great and is simple to set up and configure makes for a great "out of box" experience. The system is pre-configured to account for pretty much all practical uses and the on-screen configuration was so much better than working with a small LED panel. I needed something that sounded great for movies, and the surround sound is fantastic. I needed it to sound great for music and to be easy to transition modes, and this system knocks it out of the park. I also needed it to be easy to operate so my wife can walk up and use it without a lot of confusing steps. She can push one button and play a workout video and she loves it.

    Pros: Easy configuration, Easy operation, great sound performance, flexible configuration

    Cons: None, this is outstanding

    Ray from Hopedale, MA on 1/17/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was replacing an older JVC receiver. Man, this was so much easier. Just 1 HDMI to the TV and all other HDMI cables to the receiver. Gone were the huge bundle of wires. And the sound and control are great. I wish I could slave my kitchen TV to the main living room TV. I think there's an HDMI out for this, but the kitchen is fed by a coax cable... something to maybe figure out later.

    Pros: Easy install with most HDMI connections

    Cons: Haven't found any.

    Monica from Chesterfield, VA on 1/10/2018

    I just purchased this receiver last weekend. My old Kenwood was dated (22 yrs old but still going strong). However, I wanted to bring myself up to speed with today's systems ROKU/HDMI/4K compatibility etc. I researched new receivers and used the Live Chat with a representative at Crutchfield. I rewired all my speakers and with some phone assistance from the tech support team I had it all set up. Prepare yourself for when your Onkyo system runs the set up program and calibrates your speakers - it's rather loud and a little unnerving. Now when I watch TV I can really hear the difference this new Onkyo makes. I highly recommend it to anyone!

    Pros: Easy to use and set up. Great price point. Very crisp clear warm sound!

    Cons: During the set up process it runs a speaker calibration that is rather loud and jarring.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Overall performance is fantastic at 100 watts per channel. I am using the 5.1 set up with Zone 2. The onscreen set up is very convenient and cool. Blows away the 9 year old Yamaha receiver it is replacing. Onkyo was an overall better bang for the buck with the features and decided to give it a try. A lot more sophisticated as well. Had an issue with the main output jack for the TV but, Onkyo technical support was phenomenal. They helped to update my firmware via USB. Crutchfield was stellar and sent me out a new unit the same day I called. The Onkyo control app works great from my IPad. The Bluetooth feature is great. Overall I am very pleased with the power, sound and functionality of the unit. My TV is only 1080 but still looks great. Considering it is only 3 years old I did not see a reason to upgrade the TV.

    Pros: Onkyo IPad App, Sound, set up, tech support, Functionality

    Cons: Remote takes some time to get used to but the app does everything and more than the remote.

    I bought the receiver for a couple of reasons,first it's the name Onkyo it was the go to name back in the day and today we'll same thing. Great receiver it does everything they claim it does and it's a major improvement over the Pioneer I previously had. Next it's the Crutchfield name,great customer service and product knowledge and they have the selection. Buy this receiver and deal with Crutchfield you won't be sorry.

    Pros: It's all you'll ever need in a mid range receiver

    Cons: Can't think of any right now

    Great looking, good power, prefer the sound to the Yamaha it replaced. Only using as 2 ch for music but since it was same price as 8720....Warmer sounding than Yamaha. Better with compressed music (pandora). On the down side: HORRIBLE remote app. Takes forever to connect and delays adjusting volume, etc. Zone 2 functions are cumbersome to set up and use. I don't use banana plugs and the speaker wire holes are at difficult angles.

    Pros: Power, sound, looks, playing compressed music

    Cons: Remote app, zone functions, speaker wiring

    Unlike most, I bought this receiver to use as a 2.1 amp in a separate listening area at home. I had the hardest time figuring out the advanced and basic menus because I couldn't get the imaging right using an 8' equilateral triangle listening setup. Finally I tried turning off all the sound "enhancement" options which remained even after choosing the 2.1 speaker configuration. Wow! Yes, perfectly centered soloists and complete spread of instruments across the 8' soundstage. The sound is full, rich, clear and perfect and portable USB powered hard drives function effortlessly. Network operation is quick and stable. I love this set.

    Fantastic receiver! Looked for a receiver that would handle ARC and have enough HDMI inputs as well as component inputs. This receiver has it all. From the ability to pass through audio to the preloaded apps. The sound quality is fantastic. Bought this to replace an older Sony I had and you could tell the difference in the sound.

    Pros: Ease of setup Quality of Sound Amount of HDMI ports Pre loaded Apps

    I finally upgraded an old Yamaha reveiver I've had for over 10 years to the Onkyo RZ-610, I immediately noticed an improvement in the sound quality without hanging any other components or speakers. This is a nice receiver with a lot of bang for your buck. Set up was much easier than I anticipated with the onscreen guide and speaker calibration. Plus, there are plenty of inputs, including a phono input as well as Bluetooth and wifi streaming options. Very happy with this purchase.

    Pros: Great sound quality Plenty of inputs, including phono Multiple streaming options

    Cons: Haven't found any yet

    Great receiver. Onkyo is one of the very few that hasn't let quality slip over the years while still keeping up with the bells and whistles.

    Pros: Still has old style manual bass / treble control option where other products don't.

    Cons: The speaker terminals on the rear of the receiver are a little awkward to make connections.

    This receiver is a Powerhouse. My large JBL studio monitors sound amazing with this. It has done everything I expected and more. And crutchfield's customer service was excellent.

    Pros: The sound is fantastic from running a 2 Channel to even a full surround system. Blu-rays and CDs sound great and my turntable also sound awesome! The remote control for this receiver seems pretty easy to use with just spending a short time with it. I've been able to fine tune the sound to my liking.

    Using the Onkyo TX-RZ610 Receiver in conjunction with a Vizio M50-C1 4k Ultra HD Television, Dish Network Hopper 3 with 4k capabilities, Apple TV 4k, and Sony 4k Ultra HD Blue Ray Player. The speakers are Polk Audio RTi-A1 Right and Left, Polk Audio PS110 Subwoofer, and Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 for a Center Channel. This is my second Onkyo Receiver purchase via Crutchfield and I am happy to say I am very satisfied with the results. The price point was perfect when compared to it's capabilities. Onkyo made several changes to their setup screen making it easier to read and more intuitive for the end user. A pleasant surprise took place a few days ago, we were in the kitchen playing music via a Bose Bluetooth Speaker, as I navigating to sling my Pandora music to it I noticed the Onkyo was online so I selected the Onkyo which was powered off, before I left the kitchen to turn it on it self activated and starting playing my Pandora selection. This past weekend I connected my Apple 4k TV and the Onkyo performed fantastic, watched the Hateful 8 on it and it was superb.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I'm using my TX-RZ610 for the same purpose as I used my Onkyo TX-SR607; to use as a TV amplifier and surround system. Obviously, since I purchased a second Onkyo AV Receiver, I was pleased with the first one. The RZ610 was easier to set up than my SR607 and had nearly as many connections. I ised the 7.1 speaker setup with 9 speakers in a surround setup. I'm very pleased with the RZ610 and it seems the selection indicator lighting is brighter and easier to read than my SR607. Connections and various speaker setups are well documented and this unit carries a 3 year warranty as opposed to 2 year on the SR607.

    Pros: too many to list

    Cons: Lost the connections for front high speakers that were separate.

    I gave this receiver 5 stars because it has the powered 2nd. zone speaker outputs , Dolby Atmos and built-in music apps when you connect it to the internet. I installed this receiver last weekend in a large home that is being upgraded so we have speakers all over and used the 2nd. zone output for the kitchen speakers, and then the bonus is the pre-amp output for the 2nd. zone which I used for a 2 channel Crown amp and then went into a speaker distribution switcher to volume controls on the wall in each room so i was able to add as many rooms as i like with audio and they can all be controlled with the app. from our phones or tablets . Great Job on this one Onkyo, it's a real winner !!!

    Pros: Powered and pre-amp audio outputs for music in other zones, Dolby Atmos, built-in music apps, can be controlled from smartphones and tablets. Great price!

    Cons: None yet.

    Great receiver and the price is right too! Was time to replace my 20+ year old Yamaha RX-V992 so I could utilize HDMI, Bluetooth, WiFi, and USB. So it should support what I need far into the future. I was glad to find out the Onkyo seems to be a bit "brighter" than the old Yamaha. Despite the long list of features and capabilities, the initial setup was easy and matched with my Polks perfectly! OSD is easy to navigate and the firmware auto-update worked like it should. I like the small uncluttered remote (unlike the Yamaha), but it would be nice if it was lighted.

    Pros: Clear, rich sound and comes with many features

    Cons: Needs a lighted remote and a front USB port

    Great receiver

    Great receiver. Replaced an older Onkyo that was damaged during a recent move. The sound quality difference is amazing. Plus, I get to step into the world of Bluetooth, streaming, etc. Crutchfield had an excellent price and delivery was quick. Fortunately I had the speaker cables all labeled (and banana plugs installed) so the hook up was quick and easy.

    Cons: Would love a USB input on the front

    Unsurpassed value and performance

    Scott from Tampa, FL on 9/12/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I decided to upgrade my receiver and wanted one with a dedicated Phono input. I came across the TX-RZ610 at a price that was so ridiculously low, I bought two. I have been using Onkyo products for decades, so I was already familiar with their layout and getting all of the cables crossed over to the new unit was a snap. One thing that was very noticeable was the simplicity of the remote. Considering the immense amount of features and functionality, I was expecting a miniature keyboard but the setup and adjustments are menu driven. The difference in audio quality was immediately noticed and quite dramatic when using a high resolution source. The 4K capability was also appreciated. I have one installed in a small room and another in a large room with a cathedral ceiling and there is no problem with the receiver being too much or too little. Given the amount of features, I think this receiver will be future proof for some time. The only negative I can give would be for the AccuEQ. In both rooms, the calibration it provided was horrible. I don't consider this to be a drawback as your ears are the best tuning device to use. You can use the AccuEQ to throw a signal to each of your speakers to confirm they are connected correctly, so there is some use to it. Also to be noted is that this is a fairly tall receiver, so if you use furniture that has fixed dimensions for components, measure first. The feet can be removed to give a little extra headroom.

    Pros: Higher end features at a bargain price Up to date audio/video specs

    Cons: AccuEQ is not great May not fit in smaller spaces

    This replaced my Yamaha Aventage RX-A760. It was a serious upgrade. The Aventage was my third Yamaha, and probably my last. The Onkyo's in my experience, always sounded much better with improved intelligibility. I can read the Onkyo remote without the magnifying glass required with the Aventage. The Aventage replaced a Marantz that was defective, repaired twice, but not resolved. Marantz sent me a refurb to replace it. D&M Holdings will never be in my home again. The only down side to the Onkyo is that my CEC control was gone one morning. I had to manually update firmware even though the av was set to auto upgrade. Here is the "litmus test". If something happened to this, I would replace it with the same. Hats off to my Crutchfield slaes rep Marshall. He was kind, patient, and knowledgeable. Here's my system.49" Sony Bravia 4k, Oppo BDP-105D BluRay, PSB Image T-55's mains, HSU center, Paradigm CT-100 height, Def Tech Pro 60 surrounds, and a Velodyne SPL 1000 sub. Home Theater nirvana!

    Pros: Nothing to be desired, easy to read, and uncluttered remote

    Replaced a 15 year old Sony with this unit. I wasn't going to get this one but the price made it a simple choice. It was really easy to set up and the sound is great. The only reason for the 4 stars is that I don't like a couple of the minor settings. Overall, I am very happy with this.

    Rich, musical amp; learning curve

    Paul from Irvine, CA on 8/28/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    There's a learning curve to this A/V receiver -- the physical manual is bare-bones and the online advanced version is light on illustrations and explanations -- it's especially hard to figure out the Bluetooth/Net features. Switching settings isn't as intuitive or smooth as it was on the Onkyo SR610 this receiver replaces. Really irksome is the switch between (a smart Samsung) TV and cable/sat: You have to think of it as getting completely out of one mode before you can get into the other. Complaints aside, I bought this receiver for one main reason: better sound from my B&W 685 S2-based sound system, and in that respect the RZ610 is a HUGE winner. When I hooked it up the difference in the crispness of the center channel was immediate and dramatic. The 5.1 environment is quite good, all musical sources are better with the amps in this machine driving the speakers even at low volume. I am surprised and very pleased by how good the All-Channel Stereo setting is. I listen to music at the computer with the speakers behind me, often turned down low because of a full house, and this setting helps greatly. All the Dolby variations are vastly improved from my 10-year-old receiver's. The remote makes it easy to switch and get the tone right. Matching the subwoofer to the RZ610 was a chore; Onkyo manual and site were no help, but eventually digging into the B&W manual got me to the correct ``less is more'' approach. All in all, I'm very happy with the RZ610, especially at $499.

    Pros: clear, rich, powerful amplifier; excellent with video; phono plug is a plus; well-thought-out remote; once learned, BT works well

    Cons: manuals, switching modes

    I bought this unit to replace a 16 year old Yahama AV receiver. I would have normally purchased another Yamaha as i have been impressed with the features and quality of the units. This is my first Onkyo. I've seen them before and thought the specs/features were good for the price. I did a couple of comparisons between units and for the money it seemed the Onkyo was a good choice. The best feature for me were the number of HDMI ports, phono jack, and 7.2 surround. The BIGGEST disappointment is that it does not support composite/component video up conversion to HDMI. The Crutchfield site specs indicate it does -- but it doesn't. My old Yamaha does so I was quite disappointed this unit did not.

    Pros: 8 HDMI inputs, sound setup was easy; great sound. Upgradeable firmware.

    Cons: Does not support up conversion to HDMI. Special feature not easily understood in setup menu. No detailed User Manual. Is not Sirius/XM ready.

    Rick from Crawfordsville, IN on 8/18/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is my first Onkyo receiver. I was looking to get a new home theater receiver to replace my still functional, but somewhat obsolete beast of a Denon unit. (DTS was just introduced and HDMI didn't exist when I got the Denon). Thanks to HDMI inputs and output, cabling the Onkyo was a delight compared my previous setup. This is my first experience with automatic speaker calibration. What a great feature. My concern with this receiver was whether it could effectively drive my two inefficient main stereo Carver speakers. It does, though I had to manually adjust default the volume settings. This unit has two fewer surround sound channels than the receiver it's replacing, but with Dolby Atmos and newer DTS settings, I haven't missed them. I also find movie dialogue comes through much better. I attribute this to 20 years of improvement in digital audio processing. For the price, this receiver rocks.

    Pros: I consider the Bluetooth connection to be a nice feature. The 4K pass through works very well.

    Cons: I miss having a powered AC socket for accessories. The only complaint I have is that the accompanying manual is very basic. It's fine for initial setup, but fails to explain the different settings available. An internet search led me to a detailed explanation of the additional features. It would have been nice had this been part of the written material.

    W from Seattle, WA on 8/1/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I got this on too good of a deal to pass up so I settled with the 100 watts instead of the 135 watts on my older Onkyo TX-NR808. I wanted the TX-RZ810 but it was not on as good of a sale. I figured it would be better to add more tower speakers to make up for the lost volume from less power. The sound and picture are just great once I conquered the set up woes. I have the speakers to drive the sound too but the 4K picture output is just holy on my 2016 Samsung 40" 6300 with a 120 motion rate equivalent UHD TV. The 4K picture really helps the somewhat poor picture up conversion on the Samsung. The Samsung is nice when fed a 4K picture but a 720 pixel picture just looks bad in great detail. The TX-RZ610 solved the Samsung 4K needs once set up right. Initially the CEC and last app used settings made turning the home theater on and off a living nightmare but I disabled them and now it is pure love with the sound and picture coming out of the Samsung. I figured out how to use two hdmi cables with both of the hdmi outputs on two of the Samsung hdmi inputs and get tv sound from the Onkyo and use the main hdmi with the hdr too. One hdmi goes in the Samsung arc in/out and the other to the hdr hdmi input. That way you get good tv sound from the arc when watching tv over the air and also get the full color and details from the hdr too. You get both great tv sound and great movies on demand. What an improvement in sound compa

    Pros: Great 4K picture up conversion and sound.

    Cons: Only 100 watts rms at 8 ohms.

    DISAPPOINTMENT!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    In short, this unit has serious drawbacks which are new compared to previous Onkyo I have and which are not clear in the basic or advanced manuals. I was not expecting these drawbacks despite doing a fair amount of research before buying. ZONE 2 IS NOT A FULL ZONE 2 Zone 2 is not an option as with previous receivers (I had an Onkyo TX-SR805 ). This RZ610 unit will not do 7.1 sound and then just automatically use 2 outputs for zone 2 when you want zone 2. You will have to hit more buttons to switch from 7.1 to 5.1 sound. Then turn on zone 2 which does not have a dedicated button on the remote. Neither the basic guide or the advanced guide explains this clearly as far as I can tell. It says you can only play 5.1 sound in main room when playing zone 2. OK. My old receiver (the Onkyo TX-SR805) switched off 2 of the 7.1 speakers. That is what I was expecting here. THE UNIT HAS NO DIRECT ZONE 2 BUTTON You have to hit an obscure combination of buttons to get zone 2 to come on. I suppose this is because it is "always on". BUILT-IN BLUETOOTH=NOT SO USEABLE The other issue is I could not play Bluetooth from a PC to zone 2; only analog. So to play from my laptop I have to go back to the old separate BlueTooth input thing with separate power plugged into RCA phono input etc and 2010 windows interface. On a positive note, the unit did use less power; roughly 50 watts when running vs. 130 watts for the old beast. That was one of the main reasons

    Pros: low power usage, sounds fine, video looks fine

    Cons: can't play bluetooth from a digital source, can't play zone 2 easily or at all, can't play zone 2 with 7.1 in main room, weak remote, inferior features to the TX-SR805 I have that is 10 years old

    I decided on this receiver TX-RZ610 after reviewing the specifications. It is light weight compared to the Onkyo it replaced. 6 pounds lighter than the HT-RC370. This in in part to a smaller heat sink and transistors. No onboard upscaling on composite, s-video, or component video. No internal cooling fans, convection cooling only. The power supply transformer appears to be the same as the one it replaced. This unit does run much cooler than the previous receiver. I don't have any 4k sources yet to try out. Apple tv control with cec control working after setup in menu. Bluetooth will not connect to a Samsung smart tv. I also needed ARC but have to replace my HDMI so haven't tested it yet. The auto speaker calibration takes more time than the last receiver. The setup microphone seems cheap compared to the older model. Simple remote included made setup easyier than the more complicated units from pervious generation. Auto standby through HDMI control works. HDMI menu overlay appears to be low resolution compared to menu resolution. Can set volume to specific level for power on and a maximum volume level. This unit sometimes get confused by the harmony remote automation timing for a ps3. Im satisfied after using this for a few weeks but was suprised it did not appear to be of equal or better quality than the onkyo it replaced.

    Pros: Handles sources well Phono input 4K

    Cons: Speaker set up microphone Small amplifier heat sink Light weight

    Adam from Portland, OR on 5/16/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This has been a great receiver so far. It feels like it has plenty of power for my theater room, and the recent update that offered Chromecast was a very nice improvement. The build quality feels good, and the receiver looks great (in my opinion). Another reviewer said that the receiver omits the first few seconds of "every song, commercial, and show "thinking" about the digital signal". I haven't encountered this issue at all.

    Pros: Build quality Chromecast support Decent power

    Cons: Menu is less intuitive compared with Denon (in my opinion)

    The receiver is amazing once setup. Combined with smartphone app, the flexibility is outstanding. I am using with a Samsung 4K smart tv along with Bose surround sound in my TV room and Bose outside speakers on my patio. To be able to easily switch from cable, antenna and smart TV inputs along with blu-ray and pandora with really nice sound. I am impressed. Setup challenging with less than stellar instructions.

    Pros: Great sound and outstanding flexibility of input sources

    Cons: Instruction manual and on-line information

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Seems like a decent receiver. Instructions are far from clear, so inam figuring out many of the features on my own by trial and error. I don't know if it's just in my head or it is actually doing it, but the 4k upscaling feature has seemed to improve my viewable picture from all input signals (the specs say it only upscales 1080p signals).

    Pros: 4k upscaling is incredible

    Cons: Instructions are lacking. Price.

    I needed to return the original unit because of a defective with setting up the automatic EQ. Crutchfield sent a replacement unit the next business day. The new unit was easy to set up and easy to operate. I am impressed by the sound and the video. The Onkyo customer service was great particularly since there is a dedicated and knowledgeable team for the RZ series. I am very pleased overall with my purchase and recommend the Onkyo RZ series.

    It omits the first few seconds of every song, commercial, and show "thinking" about the digital signal. If you can get over this annoyance, it is a very good unit. I wanted a home theater receiver with dolby atmos and 100 watts per channel that had a phono input. This was the only one at that price. I've owned an onkyo since 1978 and they have always lasted with excellent performance.

    RZ Series: Onkyo's premium RZ series AV receivers feature upgraded components, such as a massive transformer and custom capacitors that provide high instantaneous current for lightning-fast transient response and a frequency range that extends down to 5 Hz. Discrete amp circuits prevent phase shifting, clearly focusing the audio image and cutting distortion even at extreme volume levels. The RZ series amplifier delivers a significant boost to the dynamics, detail, and accuracy of music and movie soundtracks for a listening experience that packs a stunning emotional impact. The RZ series are backed by a 3 year parts & labor warranty.

    Dynamic Audio Amplification: The TX-RZ610 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 amplifier design w/ discrete output stage circuitry, WRAT (Wide Range Amp Technology), H.C.P.S (High Current Power Supply), separate block construction, and Optimum Gain Volume Circuitry for dynamic, detailed, and clear sound.

    • Hi-Current Amp Design: The unique elements of Onkyo's Dynamic Audio Amplification system comprise high-current, low-impedance architecture with discrete output stage circuitry & custom 15,000 μF audio capacitors for instantaneous high-current power and precisely control of your loudspeakers for dynamic, accurate sound.
    • Wide Range Amp Technology (WRAT): 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): Under the anti-resonant cover of any Onkyo receiver, you'll instantly notice the High Current Power Supply (H.C.P.S.) transformer. With its huge, isolated power supply design and high-capacity filter capacitors, it delivers the large amounts of power necessary for reproducing the wide dynamics of movie soundtracks and the detail and clarity of your music.
    • High-Quality Construction: The AV receiver employs a separate analog amp and digital processing block construction to reduce interference. Copper bus bars and rigid insulators are used to further reduce signal interference.
    • 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 sound.

    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-RZ610 provides 7.1ch surround in your main listening area with dedicated Surround Back speakers.
    • 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.

    Dual 32-Bit DSP Engines: The Onkyo TX-RZ610 AV receiver employs powerful and highly accurate 32-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor) engines for better surround sound reproduction.

    384kHz/32-Bit Hi-Grade DAC: The Onkyo TX-RZ610 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 Dolby TrueHD). The TX-RZ610 offers additional DAC signal processing to make sure your movie & music soundtracks sound their best.

    • 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

    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 bypass the AccuEQ for your front speakers or all speakers, and manually set the distance, crossover, EQ, and level of each speaker.

    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 2Ch Linear PCM 2ch, 32-192kHz, 16/20/24-bit
    Multichannel Linear PCM 8ch, 32-192kHz, 16/20/24-bit
    DSD 2ch, 2.8 MHz, 1-bit

    Optical/Coaxial 2Ch Linear PCM 2ch, 32-96kHz, 16/20/24-bit
    Multichannel Linear PCM 6ch, 32-96Hz, 16/20/24-bit
    Bitstream Dolby Digital, DTS, DTS ES, DTS 96/24

    Immersive Surround Sound: The Onkyo TX-RZ610 AV receiver goes beyond regular surround with the latest immersive surround sound formats, including Dolby Atmos, & DTS: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-RZ610 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 speakers.
    • DTS:X (via future firmware update): 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.

    Post Decoding Formats: The Onkyo AV receiver supports Dolby Surround, DTS Neural:X, and DTS Neo:6 (Music/Cinema) to enhance 2-channel and multichannel decoding formats.

    • 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 (via future firmware update): 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.
    • DTS Neo:6: DTS Neo:6 is an advanced matrix decoder that takes any two-channel source (including television broadcasts, CDs and DVDs) and expands it into five or six channels. It also provides separate, optimized modes for stereo music materials and matrix surround motion picture soundtracks. DTS Neo:6 brings you a more revealing sound from ordinary stereo and a more expansive home cinema experience.

    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: For classical or operatic music.
    • Unplugged: For acoustic instruments, vocals, and jazz.
    • Studio-Mix: Suitable for rock or pop.
    • TV Logic: Adds realistic acoustics to TV shows.
    • Game: The receiver offers four different Gaming modes - RPG, Action, Rock, and Sports.
    • All Ch Stereo: Stereo sound from all speakers. Ideal for background music.
    • Full Mono: All speakers output the same sound in mono.
    • Theater-Dimensional (T-D): Theater-Dimensional circuitry takes the complexity out of conventional surround-sound setups and lets you experience the excitement of surround sound from as few as two ordinary speakers. Theater-Dimensional's unique multi-speaker modes let you place up to five speakers conveniently by the TV, for the most realistic virtual-surround sound possible.

    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-RZ610 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, Phase Matching Bass technology, and a Double Bass feature to get the most bass impact out of your system.

    • Tone Controls: You can independently adjust the Bass (90Hz) and Treble (7.5kHz) of the receiver's Front L/R channels from -10 to +10 dB.
    • 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 volume 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.
    • 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 50-99 (max), or Off (disabled).
    • Power On Volume: Use this feature to set the volume level when the power is turned on. 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.

    Phono Input: The Onkyo AV receiver is fitted with a Phono (MM) input and ground terminal for connection of a turntable, so you can enjoy listening to your vinyl records.

    Front-Panel Aux Input: The TX-RZ610 is fitted with a front-panel 3.5mm Aux input for connecting a portable audio player.

    Analog Audio Outputs: The Onkyo TX-RZ610 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 6- to 16-ohm speakers.
    • Dual Subwoofer Outputs: The receiver is fitted with two subwoofer outputs to connect dual powered subs for extra bass. The dual outputs are wired in parallel and share the same input signal (the 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.

    Video Features

    HDMI 2.0a: The Onkyo TX-RZ610 has eight HDMI 2.0a inputs (7 rear/1 front) and dual HDMI 2.0a outputs. The dual HDMI outputs can simultaneously output the same HDMI audio/video signal to two TVs (video is output at the resolution supported by both TVs). Thanks to the latest HDMI 2.0a 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-RZ610 supports up to 4K (3840x2160 pixels) video @ 60 frames per second on all of its HDMI inputs and outputs. It will also pass a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p video signals via HDMI
    • HDCP 2.2: The receivers HDMI 1-3 inputs and both HDMI monitor 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 1-3 inputs and both HDMI monitor outputs 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.
    • HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR 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.
    • 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.

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.

    Matches my Onkyo TX-SR620 most closely. I also checked several other retailers and their offers were not as complete as Crutchfield's. I'm replacing the SR620 because it's been in the shop 4 times since early 2016 [ Truman  Oct 04, 2017 ]

    this is my third onkyo receiver from you guys. I love the sound of it. I recently bought a Sony receiver, but it never worked. [ KAREN G  Aug 11, 2017 ]
    I bought this receiver to replace an older Onkyo receiver I've had for about 8 years. I've owned several Onkyo receivers and have had great luck with each. Great sounding well optioned receivers and always a good value. I don't have much play time on this TX-RZ610 yet, but so far I like it, and if all the professional reviews prove to be true, I think it will be a great receiver. [ Jeff  Aug 06, 2017 ]
    The current A / V receiver is an Onkyo product. I have used it for a long time, but the sound and after service are good. I think it was a good choice. [ Yoon  Aug 04, 2017 ]

    I've owned Onkyo products for over 20 years and have never been let down. I chose this particular model due to its great value, superior quality and overall workmanship. In my opinion Onkyo products are the best on the market. I ordered from Crurchfield because your customer service is superb! [ Tony  Jul 11, 2017 ]

    I've been a fan of Onkyo for years. It's a well respected name in A/V Receivers. Mine died after a few years and would rather buy a new one with the latest technology and features. The price is compelling as well. [ Thomas  Jul 03, 2017 ]

    17 questions already asked

    Having owned this receiver for three weeks now and planning on making wireless headphones my next purchase I have to agree with richard s, the BT only works for a source, not for output. I'm thinking of returning and after reviewing several manuals of competing units it appears that at this price point the same is true for Denon. However, Yamaha and Sony do offer BT output. It's nice that Crutchfield offers the manuals - Be sure to read carefully before buy. I wish I had. Other than this issue - I love everything else about the TX-RZ610. [ Kyle  Jan 15, 2018 ]
    No problem [ David Neil  Jan 09, 2018 ]
    No, you have to have an external blue tooth box. This is not related to your question. But, I'd like to point out one thing why I chose this box. This is the only A/V box has power amp built in for the zone-2. Setting up is a bit challenging. -R [ richard  Jan 09, 2018 ]
    yes [ Truman  Jan 09, 2018 ]
    95% sure zone 2 plays the same as surround. Playing seperately that is newer technology. [ Harry  Dec 26, 2017 ]
    After speaking with Crutchfield customer and technical support, I turned up the sub output in the speaker settings. This increased the sub output, but no by much. After checking all of the settings, I tried turning off the AccuEQ and that did the trick! What a difference this made. Maybe more small room size had an adverse effect when I set things up, I don't know. This receiver sounds excellent now! [ Edwin  Dec 31, 2017 ]
    I originally had my Prosub 1000 connected to this, then later my SVS SB13 Ultra. I haven't had any issues with subwoofer output. I had a Dennon before the Onkyo and have not noticed any lower output since swapping receivers. [ ADAM  Dec 27, 2017 ]
    Yes .... Very low almost non existent! Don't know what to do about it???? [ marc  Dec 27, 2017 ]
    The outputs to the subwoofer and to zone 2 are very low. I had to increase the sub plus 10db using the controller app. I have not found a good solution for increasing the signal on zone 2. [ Badger Fan  Dec 27, 2017 ]
    I am using a Yamaha sub-woofer and am able to get good out put by adjusting both the specific volume through the receiver and adjusting the volume control on the sub-woofer itself. [ Jerry  Dec 27, 2017 ]

    Manual says; it is compatible with USB mass storage devices class standard. It is also compatible with USB storage devices using the FAT16 or FAT32 file system formats. -R [ richard  Jan 09, 2018 ]
    No. Unfortunately, the USB drive isn't exposed as an accessible drive on a network. [ Darron  Nov 28, 2017 ]
    James H is correct. Unfortunately, the USB drive isn't exposed as an accessible drive on a network. Another option would be to get a USB extender cable so you don't have to access the rear panel with every USB drive change. [ Darron  Nov 28, 2017 ]
    I don't believe that will work, at least it doesn't for me. An alternative is to load music server software on your computer and use the receiver's network capability to access music files. I use Asset UPnP, which is free. [ James  Nov 26, 2017 ]
    Unknown. I don't have an IPad. [ PETER  Nov 10, 2017 ]
    Yes you can. [ Jerome  Nov 10, 2017 ]
    The previous 4/25/2017 firmware update (Version 2059-0030-4040-0008), added support for Chromecast. The latest firmware version is: 8/31/2017 2079-2040-5050-0008 and can be downloaded from Onkyo. [ Darron  Sep 28, 2017 ]
    The update has been loaded. [ James A.  Sep 28, 2017 ]
    It does accept google chrome devices. [ Michael  Sep 28, 2017 ]
    I am unsure but on the last page of the manual it has a Hi-Res Audio symbol [ Emil  Sep 22, 2017 ]
    A theater receiver like this one will have a direct mode where audio from the input source is output without surround-sound processing to deliver pure sound with minimum sound quality adjustment and filtration. That will help you with your goals. There are other technologies that also help with listening to music to bring out all its details and have even less processing. I recommend contacting an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 if you want to explore those options too. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  Sep 08, 2017 ]  Staff
    There is not an usb port on the front of this unit. [ Jerry  Aug 10, 2017 ]
    The Onkyo TX-RZ610's USB port allows you to enjoy a variety of audio files from a USB storage device. However, I'm afraid it doesn't support video and/or photo playback via the USB input. For more details or to discuss further, please feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. [ Larry  Aug 09, 2017 ]  Staff
    The 6th and 7th outputs can be configured as either "surround back" or "height" channels in the Onkyo receiver's settings; but there doesn't appear any option for "width" speakers. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. Thanks!

    There is an "AccuEQ Room Calibration" procedure using a supplied speaker setup microphone. This is described on page 18 in the manual. Worked for me! [ Martin  May 29, 2017 ]
    The set up menu contains a "Dolby Loudness Management" and a Late Night volume control. [ J Kevin  May 29, 2017 ]
    It has the self programming eq where you hook a microphone up and put it at the center listening postion. Receiver then plays test tones and forms equalizer settings. They can be used for all speakers, center only, or completely turned off. It also has preset equalizer that you can adjust manually. [ John  May 29, 2017 ]
    If by racked you mean sliding it into an open slot in your stereo cabinet, yes. It doesn't have mounting holes if your cabinet requires them. I slid it into the old receiver slot in my cabinet and it worked fine. You do have to allow for the two 802.11 wireless antennas on the back if you need better reception. [ BRYAN  Apr 12, 2017 ]
    Yes, if your device supports the ARC. I use the TV to listen to music via the HDMI cable. -R [ richard  Jan 09, 2018 ]
    Sorry, no. You can view the "Compatible" and "Incompatible" Zone 2 sources by clicking on the "Details" tab on the receiver's main webpage and scrolling down below the "Features & Specs" table. [ Ryan  Apr 05, 2017 ]  Staff
    The receiver is Atmos capable, yes. The 6th & 7th channels can be configured to power two overhead Atmos speakers for the 5.1.2 (or 5.2.2 if you will be using two powered subs) configuration. You will find this information, and more, by clicking the "Details" tab on the receiver's main webpage and scrolling down below the "Features & Specs" table. I hope that helps.
