Onkyo TX-RZ800

It sounds delectable with high-res audio sources – although prefers unplugged to unleashed – and with DTS:X compatibility to complement Dolby Atmos promised, plus wide HDCP 2.2 HDMI input support, it’s not going to date any time soon. Give it a listen.

Is $200 worth two additional channels of amplification, 4k upconversion, a component video input, and extra HDMI input, and a few other odds and ends? We think for many consumers it will be. If you have no need of seven channels or video upconversion,...
