For example I have the Denon X4200 that I bought new at the time for $799 with Audyssey XT32 and has SubEQ HT.

Sonos..

Great now Soccer moms can connect their "wireless" speakers.


To me the "Sonos Customer" is a person that's more concerned with wires then with sound quality. So who is this person who isn't into home theater enough to go with with real speakers but wants to spend $1,000 on a receiver?

So what does works with Sonos connect do on this receiver that a Sonos connect can’t do on any other receiver as it is?


I drive a Dodge Stratus.

Why do these companies only provide output ratings for 1 and 2 channels driven? It’s a 9 channel receiver. Most will use at least 5. Is it just to market with boosted stats?

At least Onkyo offers power rating as ve used to see on oldie receivers and amps: at 8 ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08% conditions, mostly brands today only show it at 6 ohms, 1Khz and 1% (if not much more) distortion! But yes, multi-channel receivers should exhibit the power of every channel (when all driven at once).

True, can't argue with that. It is about wants and needs. For me it has to have SubEQ HT.

OK, but even if they "should" do this, the reality is it makes sense to make the amps in an AVR current limited because there's basically no movie mix that requires all channels to output at 100% concurrently, so in the grand scheme of measurements that's actually less useful than what the capability of each channel is. Ideally we'd have a chart that shows what happens with 2 channels, 3 channels, 4 channels, etc.


And yeah wattage is really sorta arbitrary. You pick an impedance and you pick a distortion figure and make it work. Somewhere near 100 watts into 8 ohms at "zero point zero whatever" distortion is a popular one. It's also a fact the difference between 90 watts and 100 watts is trivial.

These are a pretty big upgrade from the RZ-*20 series from a channel and processing perspective. All 3 of the 830, 730 and 630 have 9 channels of amplification. All 3 have can still play digital sources on Zone-2 but now can also switch HDMI to Zone 2. The 830 and 730 have 11.2 pre-amp outs and support up to 7.2.4 speaker set-ups (with external 2 channel amp). Sonos is a nice addition but more importantly to me they didn't remove any streaming functions like we've seen with Yamaha and Denon recently.


There is a minor drop in power across the board with the introduction of extra channels of amplification but I doubt the real-world power will be appreciably different.



Accu-EQ supporting multi-point measurements should be a nice upgrade as well.


RZ820 has been on fire sale while the RZ920 hasn't really budged in price. I would guess the RZ920 will start dropping too since the RZ830 is essentially a replacement for it. Really there is no reason to buy even the RZ1100 anymore unless you need video upscaling or don't have space for an external amp.

I'm no soccer mom and I love Sonos. It's great for wireless whole home audio.

I use many of their speakers in areas of my home that require less critical listening such as the bathroom, kitchen and guest bedroom. I also incorporate their Sonos Connect in my living room and home theater where I have deployed much higher end audio equipment. In these rooms I can get access to my entire digital library, up to CD quality, very conveniently and it's synced perfectly throughout my entire home.

Did Onkyo just become the cheapest receiver with 7.2.4 outs with the TX-RZ730?

This is my question too. I already have 2 Sonos Connects, one connected to an older model Onkyo and another connected to a Denon. Both receivers work just fine with my Sonos system. I do have to control the receivers manually, meaning, I have to set the input and control the volume.

I’ve been looking at receivers for my hopefully soon Home theater.
How do these compare to the Denon receivers ? I’m considering the AVR-X3400 as it has Audyssey XT32 and full preamp outputs.
How does this version of Accurate-EQ compare to XT32 ? What is different about this version and the previous version ? If I remember correctly, the old version only ran room correction on the Front Left and Right channels correct ?

tk123 I am with you, trying to choose between x3400 from Frys or TX-NR787, RZ-730 or LX303. I saw that the NR787 has advanced Accueq but I cannot find anything regarding independent dual sub calibration. Also I think the new Pionkyo doesn't have video up-scaling anymore? I have 3 zones and would love a 9.2 receiver for less than $800.

Hi TK, for what its worth I have a Denon 4200 and being a 3-4 year old receiver Denon seems to still be supporting this receiver with updates from time to time. JD Smoothie can probably elaborate more but to me this is pretty remarkable for a company other than a game console to still make the occasional update. Anyway my 2 cents would be to go with the Denon, especially since youll be able to get it for a steal due to the time of the year.


I drive a Dodge Stratus.

Huh? I use Sonos for my ceiling speakers in my kitchen, living room, dining room, patio speakers. Great system.

In my main theater/family room I have Anthem, Seaton sound, Sunfire, diy subs. I'm pretty concerned about sound quality where it matters and convenience of use where I use my Sonos systems.

Anyhow.... Mark..i also read Onkyo is updating many models to have this feature. Will it allow me to add an extra zone? E.g. Use a receiver in my pool cabana and have it send Sonos out to my pool speakers instead of having to purchase another Sonos Connect Amp? May buy a cheap used unit if so.

I’m still confused about the new Accu-EQ implementation. Does it correct all the speakers or just the fronts as before ? And, does it do a good job with bass frequencies? I’ve seen several people post that Audyssey neutered their bass/subbass, so they eventually end up turning it off. What’s the point of having it if you don’t use it ?

AccuEQ has improved since its initial implementation such that all speakers and the sub are now EQ'd. Now comparing XT32 to AccuEQ is a whole nother story as some still prefer XT32 while others have said AccuEQ does a fair job now.

Also, Audyssey sets the bass level at where the mixer believes it should be in relation to the rest of the speakers, whereas most owners prefer more of a "BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!" sub experience so the solution is to simply bump up the subwoofer level to suit one's preference, on average about +5dB. Additionally, the vast majority of owners likely use Audyssey as in most cases it performs a much better job than when it's off.

It seems they have now concentrated more on the low-freq stuff which is great! Yamaha doesn`t do anything to fix the known poor mic problem w/ sub eq, which stops too early. Hopefully we hear good things about this new AccuEQ Advance. Also going from one mic position to three can only help.

Thanks JD. Wow! You do read other threads besides D & M ones 😁
I was hoping that someone with experience with both would chime in here.

Onkyo seems to have a good reputation for sound quality and power output, but a bad recent history with internal components, i.e. HDMI boards. I’m just trying to determine if they are up to the level of Denon/Marantz and Yamaha yet ?

Thanks for the link. I have read that before, but it still leaves questions.
Mainly, is the new Accu-EQ adjustable ? I know that Denon/Marantz have the app that allows full customization of FR settings and the ability to load a custom FR curve. Not sure, but I think Yamaha has some adjustability.
Now the question is, how much customization does this new system from Onkyo offer ?

As JD hinted at I think, most people run room correction and just accept its results and use it. Others, who are more into this stuff, like the ability to tweak settings to get the exact sound they’re looking for.
My system in my truck is 4-way, fully active so I fall into the latter category. The wife’s in her car is bone stock, so she’s one of the former.

Also, is the implementation the same in the TX-NR and TX-RZ series receivers ? I assume the RZ is the higher line, so is Accu-EQ upgraded in this series to something better than the NR series?
Sorry about all the posts, but random questions keep popping into my head.

I stand corrected, was trying to make a sarcastic joke, but I can see where Sonos would come in handy. I have a friend that bought surround sound and was all in because of the "convenience" now regrets it.

Currently have the 818 and looking to replace now with the RZ830, I'm ready to play with Atmos :-) I already have a 5-channel amp so will use the pre-outs for the main speakers and the on-board amps for the atmos speakers. Just interested in any real-world experience moving from XT32 to Accu-EQ, oh and I have dual subs.

Any thoughts on the 830 and Accu-EQ would be appreciated.

Onkyo TX RZ830 - Emotiva XPA-5 - Panamax M5300
Polk 265LS/255cLS L/C/R - 2 sets 80F/X-LS Atmos & LSiM703 surrounds - Dual SVS PB2000 subs
OPPO BDP-103 - HTPC with Emby

unless i missed something, yes.

and they also set a precedent that it should only cost $200 to do that.

so, somebody else, take your $400 7.1ch avr that's good enough, and slap some preouts on it, charge me $650, and i'll be a happy customer
