Join the object-based sound revolution with a flexible and sophisticated controller capable of delivering a full-scale multidimensional surround-sound experience without 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 VLSCTM 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 CastTM, Wi-Fi®, and AirPlay®, and the latest HDMI® connections, the beautifully crafted PR-RZ5100 boasts every convenience to smooth the transition to next-generation entertainment.
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.
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.
DTS Neural:X™ retrieves spacial cues from standard multichannel formats and upmixes for 3D playback 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 with ease using Google Cast (via firmware update). The receiver also features AirPlay®, Bluetooth®, and Wi-Fi® for universal wireless audio support.
Enjoy any music you want any time on your home theater via Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, Tidal and TuneIn or via Onkyo remote app.
A firmware update enables any audio source connected to the receiver—from vinyl to streaming audio—to be sent wirelessly via FireConnect™ powered by Blackfire, to an optional speaker* placed anywhere in your home. Stable, fast, and easy to control with a mobile, it’s the smart way to set audio free.
Put extra speakers you have to good use—plug them in to an external power amp connected to the controller using its Zone 2 and Zone 3 pre-/line-outs. Dedicated DACs and smartphone control app lets you manage digital and analog content via the controller in any zone.
Select HDMI terminals support HDR, 4:4:4 color-space, and HDCP 2.2 for next-generation UltraHD Blu-ray, streaming 4K video, and 4K/60 Hz PC-based gaming. Zone 2 output transmits 4K home theater sources to a second TV.
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. VLSC is applied to all channels on the PR-RZ5100.
The latest version of AccuEQ equalizes the surround-sound to suit the room acoustics for crisply focused sound, while AccuReflex aligns the phase of upfiring height speakers with 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.
