The new Onkyo TX-RZ70 flagship audio video receiver (AVR) offers the most advanced immersive audio technologies in 11.2 channels at 140 watts per channel.
The Onkyo brand was purchased by Premium Audio Company (PAC) in 2021. PAC says that it “was important to retain and embrace the expertise and decades of institutional knowledge” of the engineers at its Technology Center in Osaka.
“The flagship Onkyo TX-RZ70 AVR is one of the first projects our PAC product development team has worked on with the existing Onkyo engineering team and represents a new standard of performance in its class,” explained Rob Standley, SVP of global brands – Elite, Pioneer, Integra, and Onkyo.
HDMI 2.1, 8K/4K resolution, and 40GPS speeds come standard in the TX-RZ70, with full bandwidth functionality for fastest refresh to keep up with the newest gaming consoles. Premium 32-bit ESS Sabre DACs provide improved dynamics and ultra-low distortion, while Dirac Live Room Correction Full Bandwidth comes standard to develop the best sound for any room layout. Optional user upgrades are available for Dirac Live Bass Control, which uses machine learning and AI to quickly determine ideal settings for a room.
The Onkyo TX-RZ70 AVR includes advanced music streaming and connectivity, and works with smart home assistants like Alexa, Hey Google, and Siri. Roon Ready certification puts users’ entire high resolution music libraries at their fingertips (available with firmware update in September 2023).
The whole home entertainment experience can be aligned with the technology in the TX-RZ70 and fueled by studio-grade processing and a Bluetooth transmitter with aptX for sharing audio to Bluetooth headphones.
The TX-RZ70 joins other AVRs in the Onkyo family that feature THX Certification, Klipsch Optimized Mode for peak performance with compatible hi-fi speakers, and IMAX Enhanced for clearer, brighter video and immersive audio
The Onkyo TX-RZ70 AVR (US MAP $2,799) will be available Spring 2023 through Onkyousa.com, Crutchfield.com, and other authorized retailers.
