Product Information

Processing Prowess; Integration Ready

Join the object-based sound revolution with the PR-RZ5100 11.2 Channel THX Ultra2 Plus Network A/V Controller, 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 floor-standing/in-ceiling speaker layout with utmost fidelity through RCA or XLR pre-outs, unlocking a truly immersive theater experience. Premium DACs and VLSC 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 Cast, 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.

Complete DTS:X and Dolby Atmos Experience

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.

The Onkyo PR-RZ5100 features Dual 32-bit DSP engines to decode and scale DTS:X and Dolby Atmos to your home theater layout. Additionally, a Dolby surround up-mixer allows for your current channel-based content (that has not been mixed for Dolby Atmos) to be expanded to fill the flexible speaker layouts of a Dolby Atmos system).

DTS Neural:X retrieves special cues from standard multichannel formats and up-mixes for a 3D soundtrack that's virtually identical to a native DTS:X source, giving your existing Blu-Ray library a new lease on life.

THX Ultra2 Plus for Reference

THX certification guarantees the same high volume and low distortion levels you experience in a commercial theater right in your listening room. The PR-RZ5100 processor has passed more than 2,000 lab tests to ensure every aspect of audio performance meets rigorous standards for theater-reference sound. THX Ultra2 Plus is recommended for screen-to-seat viewing distances greater than 12 feet, and for room volumes 3000 cubic feet or greater.

Cohesive Multidimensional Sound

AccuReflex, part of the AccuEQ room calibration suite, phase-matches height and floor-standing speakers for transparent and seamless reproduction of object-based sound. AccuEQ optimizes the entire system to suit your space without affecting front-speaker characteristics for stereo listening.

Google Cast, AirPlay, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth

Most smartphone and PC music apps let you mirror what's playing to your PR-RZ5100 within moments using Google Cast. The receiver also features AirPlay, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi for universal wireless audio support, including DSD up to 11.2 MHz.

Engineered for Audio-Video Perfection

Cutting-edge audio-video processing and handcrafted construction combine to deliver a vivid and immersive entertainment experience. At the heart of the PR-RZ5100 are two Analog Devices SHARC processors capable of up to six billion operations per second. Digital-to-analog audio conversion comes courtesy of discrete high performance AKM 32-bot DACs. From source device to output, audio and video signals are kept clean and clear for optimal performance.

Engineered for High-Res Audio

The PR-RZ5100 is engineered for high-res compatibility and ease of use. It's now remarkably easy to enjoy albums mastered in high-resolution that you've downloaded and stored on your computer or media server. Almost every high-res and lossless format is supported, from gapless FLAC and WAV, to ALAC and WMA. The PR-RZ5100 also handles 11.2 MHz DSD, 192/24 PCM and Dolby TrueHD formats for the ultimate in depth and clarity.

Noiseless Signal Processing with VLSC

No matter how good the DAC, pulse noise is an inevitable consequence of digital-to-analog conversion. Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) 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.

House-Wide Playback of Any Source

Put extra speakers you have to good use - plug them into an external power amp connected to the controller using its Zone 2 and Zone 3 pre-/line-outs. Dedicated DACs and a smartphone control app let you manage digital and analog content via the controller in any zone.

FireConnect Wireless Multi-Room Solution

The PR-RZ5100 includes industry-leading technology, allowing the transmission of anything playing through your receiver - including vinyl and streaming audio - to compatible speakers around your home using FireConnect technology. Manage multi-zone playback with a free smartphone app.
