11.2-Channel Network A/V Controller
11.2-Channel Network A/V Controller
Update your lovingly assembled home theater and join the object-based sound revolution with a flexible and sophisticated controller capable of delivering a full-scale multidimensional surround-sound experience without caveat or compromise. DTS:X™ and Dolby Atmos® formats are decoded and sent to your power-amp and floorstanding/in-ceiling speaker layout with utmost fidelity through RCA or XLR pre-outs, unlocking a truly immersive theater experience. Premium DACs and VLSC™ assures stunning purity for Hi-Res Audio, such as 11.2 MHz DSD, while separate digital/analog circuitry prevents interference on analog sources. Together with comprehensive wired and wireless multi-room A/V capabilities, app-based streaming via Google Cast™, Wi-Fi®, and AirPlay®, and the latest HDMI® connections, this beautifully crafted centerpiece boasts every convenience to smooth the transition to next-generation entertainment.
Combined with a THX®-certified amplifier, the PR-RZ5100 controller’s THX® Ultra2™ Plus certification assures distortion-free Theater Reference Volume in large home theaters. Certified products are subjected to the industry’s toughest bench-tests to satisfy THX® requirements for audio performance. .
Onkyo strives to create products that bring joy to the listener. The RZ Series is the culmination of 70 years of experience in high-end audio: future-focused, but with the analog tradition at heart. Every design element, every hand-selected part contributes to flagship performance: full-spectrum reproduction, transparent resolution, lightning dynamics, a sense of rhythm and soul... performance that overwhelms and fills you with emotion.
No matter how good the DAC, pulse noise is an inevitable consequence of digital-to-analog conversion. VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) compares vectors from the input/output signal and uses that information to erase digital noise. A pure, noise-free analog signal is fed to your amps, resulting in improved detail resolution and clarity.
With 11.2 pre-amp channels, you can let your speakers deliver a complete multidimensional movie experience in your home theater through a 7.2.4 layout. Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™ unlock sound from conventional channels and free audio to move above and around the audience for a thoroughly captivating and immersive movie experience.
AccuReflex—part of the AccuEQ room calibration suite—phase-matches height and floor-standing speakers for transparent and seamless reproduction of object-based sound. AccuEQ optimizes the entire system to suit your space without affecting front-speaker characteristics for pure stereo listening.
Cast anything playing through your receiver—including vinyl and streaming audio—to compatible speakers* around your home using FireConnect™ technology. Manage multi-zone playback with our free smartphone app.
DTS Neural:X™ retrieves spacial cues from standard multichannel formats and upmixes for a 3D soundtrack that’s virtually identical to a native DTS:X™ source, giving your existing Blu-ray library a new lease on life.
Most smartphone and PC music apps let you mirror what’s playing to your PR-RZ5100 within moments using Google Cast. The receiver also features AirPlay, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi® for universal wireless audio support, including DSD up to 11.2 MHz.
