MALAYSIA, NOVEMBER , 2015 – Onkyo proudly announces two Dolby Atmos®-enabled and DTS:X™-ready A/V receivers, the TX-RZ900 and TX-RZ800 7.2-channel network A/V receivers – these models are now readily available in Malaysia.
The receivers exemplify three cornerstones of Onkyo’s philosophy: World-beating, High-Current Delivery to control large speaker cones and drive them to their maximum potential; Wide Range Amplifiers extending to 5 Hz for wall-shaking bass impact and phase-shift reduction topology for improved timing, imaging, and musicality; Low Noise Processing to erase digital pulse noise and clearly resolve the subtlest details and textures.
TX-RZ900 & TX-RZ800 A/V Receivers
The RZ900 employs a hand-wound, high-current Toroidal transformer (the TX-RZ800 features a massive EI transformer) to power original three-stage inverted Darlington amplifier circuitry for high power delivery with extremely low distortion.
The TX-RZ900 also features parallel push-pull amp circuit topology on the front channels, boosting power and efficiency. Every electrical component is custom-designed to reference standards, from the extra-large capacitors to heavy-duty output transistors.
Both RZ products feature separate power amp and processing blocks, the latter featuring a Hi-Grade Asahi Kasei AK4458 384 kHz/32-bit DAC and Onkyo’s original VLSC™ technology. VLSC compares digital input and analog output signals and removes pulse-noise generated during D/A conversion, resulting in uncommonly clear and accurate sound.
Positioned at the pinnacle of Onkyo’s impressive mid-range lineup, the THX® Select 2™ Plus-certified RZ units are crafted without compromise to deliver perfect listening enjoyment, unlocking the dynamic energy and unrestrained emotion of the original recording.
Onkyo ensures that video performance is ready for the future of 4k Ultra HD entertainment with HDCP 2.2 compliance, the latest 4K/60 Hz- and 4:4:4 color-space-ready HDMI® inputs and two 4K/60 Hz HDMI outputs for dual-zone video for streamed and broadcast Ultra HD content.
Users can enjoy the freedom of wireless audio with Wi-Fi®, AirPlay, and Bluetooth audio, and ships with internet radio and subscription services built in, including Spotify Connect and Pandora®. FLAC 192 kHz/24-bit and DSD 5.6 MHz Hi-Res Audio decoding is available via DLNA, and selection and control of network audio is centralized in an intuitive smartphone app.
For convenience, the rear panel includes dedicated speaker outputs for Height (which add overhead effects contained in object-based soundtracks set to 5.1.2) and Rear Surround (for 7.1 speaker setups). And for the first time, Powered Zone 2 distributes digital audio sources to speakers in another room.
Both receivers feature Zone 2 Pre/Line Outs, Zone 3 Line Outs, 7.2 Multichannel Pre Outs, phono input, and USB for digital audio.
The TX-RZ900 will be retailing at RM11,236 and the TX-RZ800 at RM8,692. Both models are now available at SenQ, Senheng, Desa Home Theatre, Prefect Hi-Fi, Style Venture, and Sound Master [Ipoh] and Harvey Norman chain stores nation-wide.

About Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos delivers captivating, multidimensional sound that places and moves specific sounds anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience.
Since its introduction in the cinema in 2012, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by all the major Hollywood studios, seven Academy Award® winning directors, and 16 Academy Award winning sound mixers, among others.
Now, entertainment enthusiasts will be able to enjoy Dolby Atmos in their home theaters.
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 the space, from a television’s built-in speakers to a home surround theater system to a dozen or more speakers in a commercial cinema.
For the most engaging experience on mobile devices, DTS Headphone:X delivers a spatially distinct, immersive audio experience over any set of headphones. With DTS technology, even the smallest screens will sound huge. Immerse yourself at www.dts.com/dtsx and www.dts.com/headphonex.
