The Onkyo TX-RZ900 is host to a full complement of digital connectivity including latest specification HDMI terminals and wireless connection for streaming and control via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth audio. There's no doubt this amp is a heavyweight - a massive toroidal transformer supplies the RZ900's high current amplifiers which utilise Onkyo's wide range amplifier technology for impressively clear output and buckets of power on tap.
THX Select 2 Plus certification makes the TX-RZ900 ideal for medium sized dedicated home theatre rooms and introduces Volume Plus which keeps the front and rear soundstages correctly balanced when listening at volumes under reference level. In keeping with the current popular uptake of multidimensional audio there is also support for DTS-X via a firmware update and Dolby Atmos is ready to go out of the box, another fantastic feature for a dedicated room and you can ways put the extra channel to good use in a 7.1 system if you don't fancy 5.1.2. There's a connection for an optional powered zone 2 as well, if you're using seven channels in the main zone this will disable your surround back or height speakers but provides welcome flexibility. The system can expand to 3 audio zones if external amplification is added and the second zone supports HDMI video if you have a screen in another room you would like to supply.
The TX-RX900 talents aren't just restricted to home theatre though, its high-grade DACs and impressive amplification mean its able to deliver a remarkable musical performance as well as multichannel audio. Onkyo's vector linear shaping circuitry alongside pure direct audio modes are able to supply a notably low noise floor. The 32-bit / 384kHz Asahi Kasei DAC does a supreme job of transforming digital inputs into analogue be it DTS Master Audio, 24/192 FLAC or even DSD, high resolution audio is catered to at every level.
