Press Release dated: 18 Aug 2016

11.2-Channel PR-RZ5100 Network A/V Controller, 11.2-Channel TX-RZ3100 Network A/V Receiver, and 9.2-Channel TX-RZ1100 Network A/V Receiver Unlock the Ultimate in Object-Based Surround-Sound
Driven by 70 years of home audio innovation and design, Onkyo has unveiled details of a second wave of products from its premier RZ Series, including two top-of-the-line A/V receivers: the THX® Select2™ Plus-certified 11.2-channel TX-RZ3100 Network A/V Receiver and the 9.2-channel TX-RZ1100 Network A/V Receiver, along with a flagship THX® Ultra2™ Plus-certified 11.2-channel PR-RZ5100 Network A/V Controller, all three of which are scheduled for release next month.
In addition to Zone 2 pre-outs with independent HDMI® output and Zone 3 pre-out, all three units include 11.2-channel preamp RCA outputs, while the PR-RZ5100 also features balanced XLR connectors. The TX-RZ1100 and TX-RZ3100 feature Zone 2 and 3 powered outputs for driving speakers in other rooms. Additional multi-room wireless audio capabilities are offered via optional FireConnect™*1.
The AVRs offer prodigious high-current dynamic power to drive large floor-standing loudspeakers with breathtaking accuracy and control. Users can add additional height or ceiling speakers to unlock the full multidimensional experience delivered by built-in Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™, which incorporates DTS Neural:X™ technology to up-mix lossless multichannel surround formats, such as DTS-HD Master Audio™, to emulate height effects and give listeners a 3D experience that’s close to a native object-based soundtrack.
All products offer Google Cast™*2, AirPlay®, Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, Spotify®, TIDAL*2, and TuneIn, with any app-based audio entertainment cast seamlessly to the theater room and beyond using a user-friendly Onkyo remote application*3.
Delivering ultimate clarity, cohesiveness, and full-scale power for movie and game soundtracks, Hi-Res Audio, and stereo sources, both the TX-RZ3100 and the TX-RZ1100 feature a new Onkyo Hi-Current Digital Amplification system that pairs with AccuEQ and AccuReflex technologies to optimally balance and phase-align sound in any listening space.
The three models feature premium AKM 384 kHz/32-bit digital-to-analog conversion technology and VLSC™ noise-free processing on all channels, which removes pulse-noise for sound that’s true to the source, while delivering a level of richness and emotional heft that make music and TV entertainment an amazing experience.
All three products feature separated digital and analog circuitry to minimize interference, custom low-hum transformers, and bespoke audio-grade capacitors for smooth and instantaneous power, while componentry and attention to detail throughout reflects the products’ flagship status.
Each include HDCP 2.2 compatibility and a host of 4K video features over HDMI, including BT.2020 color, High Dynamic Range, 4:4:4 color space, and 4K/60 Hz should the user choose to update their display or projector in the future.
Intuitive to use and uplifting body and soul with sublime sound, these flagships make a compelling choice for listeners seeking a no-compromises object-based audio experience.
