Onkyo TX-RZ50 - AVR with the latest HDMI 2.1 chipset

According to Vincent, this is a pre production unit from Onkyo but in terms of delivering a bug free experience, this is the very first one. All the VVR, ALLM and host of HDMI 2.1 8K promises for gamers can finally be a reality. This is looking good for most Amp/AVR manufacturers to finally consider acquiring the new chipset and kick start the HDMI 2.1 board upgrades for some of the Amp/AVRs that they promised for an upgrade to the HDMI board.

Onkyo always surprise us and months ago, rumours were Onkyo was out out business. Well this pre production unit certainly put the speculation to rest. Rejoice Onkyo fans.

Dirac Live is with Onkyo now….

Yes. Definitely a game changer for Onkyo. Onkyo has always been a VFM brand in the AV community. With Dirac as the EQ, it will definitely sound a lot better.

Rejoice Onkyo fans.

Waiting for this. :grin:

Timestamp 7.20 , why u should always use a thumb drive to update the firmware on the unit instead of through the net

Surprise to see Onkyo still retains the “puck” mic for Dirac live calibration? The chap clearly doesn’t know what he is doing with the Dirac calibration.

If i am not wrong, NAD avr with Dirac also uses a puck mic type of mic… They should at least get a better mic la imo to optimise the powers of dirac

You can use a UMK 1 mic for calibration instead of the mic that comes with it. Not sure if it does make a difference.

Provided Onkyo allows the cal file for “that UMik 1” to be used and I doubt it.

Ya definitely if a better mic is included would have been nice… or the options provided to use one will help for sure
