The THX®-certified TX-RZ1100 is aimed at discerning audiophiles waiting for the perfect product to deliver a no-compromises 5.2.4-channel audio experience in their home. This extraordinary reference receiver is suited to quad in-ceiling DTS:X™- and Dolby Atmos®-ready layouts with mammoth power to drive front and rear floorstanders with thrilling dynamism. The TX-RZ1100 leverages Onkyo-tuned high-current architecture with sophisticated digital-switching technology to achieve sound that’s nothing short of spectacular. Add the ability to cast from most music apps to the receiver via AirPlay®, Wi-Fi®, and Google Cast™, and to mirror any audio on wireless speakers around the home (along with powered audio and 4K video distribution) and the case for flagship-quality entertainment becomes even more convincing.
The latest addition to our Pure Hi-Fi lineup, the affordable A-9010 Integrated Stereo Amplifier was tuned in the UK with specially modified circuitries and four audio-grade capacitors to deliver the warm, full-bodied sound European listeners prefer. A large transformer, discrete amplifier output stage, and unique high-current, low impedance circuitry enables precise control of the speaker drivers with minimal distortion, while a thick extruded aluminum heat sink keeps everything running cool. Other inclusions such as the MM phono equalizer, independent headphone amplifier,
gold-plated speaker posts, and chunky knobs for volume, tone, and input selection reflect the quality of the product and add an appealing touch of vintage charm. If you’re looking for a sweet-sounding amp that will get the most out of your LPs and CDs without breaking the bank, the A-9010 is very much worth an audition.
CDs have been with us for decades now and continue to provide a convenient, high-quality listening experience. The C-7000R brings together features and refinements to bring the very best out of your audio CDs and CD-R/RWs, and even any MP3- or WMA-encoded discs you may have made on your computer. To ensure minimal signal interference, the C-7000R employs a thermally regulated high-precision clock, PLL ultra-low jitter technology, and a new circuit board construction. All of this highly sensitive componentry is housed in anti-vibration casing, with separate aluminum panels for the top, front, and sides. In keeping with the zero-tolerance approach to interference, digital circuitry and analog circuitry are physically separated, and you have the choice of operating the C-7000R in either digital-only or analog-only mode. The silent disc mechanism and solid die-cast aluminum tray epitomize the unit’s audiophile build quality.
Music, when you hear it in all its glory, has the power to lift the spirits and transport you into another realm. Driving you there in audiophile style is Onkyo’s newest hi-fi power amplifier, the M-5000R. Signal quality on the M-5000R is meticulously preserved by new AWRAT technology, while three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry provides extremely efficient power output. Massive twin toroidal transformers and four 27,000 μF capacitors work to stabilize the power supply and current, respectively. And to minimize
errors in stereophonic playback, the amplifier incorporates a totally symmetrical alignment of power devices for left and right channels.
Rather than simply offering raw power, the PA-MC5501 is engineered to deliver superior dynamic response and outstanding signal purity. Onkyo’s highly efficient push-pull amplification and WRAT suite work to minimize interference, stabilize the voltage, and boost the current across the unit’s electrical system. Components such as the toroidal transformer, large capacitors, and heavy-duty transistors are all designed to handle very high loads. Audiophile-grade parts—such as gold-plated speaker posts and XLR inputs—are used throughout. The result? Instantaneous response to signal gains, extremely low levels of distortion through the dynamic range, and the sort warmth and clarity only a top-shelf analog amplifier can provide. Paired with a matching Onkyo pre-pro unit, the PA-MC5501’s nine channels and bi-amping capability offer extraordinary set-up flexibility to bring you the ultimate in THX® Ultra2™-certified surround sound.
Despite being at the cutting edge of the burgeoning home cinema market, Onkyo has never forgotten its roots in pure hi-fi audio. With the P-3000R, we present a streamlined two-channel pre-amplifier that packs a treasure trove of stunning audio technology. The P-3000R handles both analog and digital sources, with connectivity options including Amphenol AES/EBU digital connectors and a USB device (C-Media CM6631) for PC audio. Separate 192 kHz/32-bit TI Burr-Brown DACs for each channel ensure accurate digital-to-analog conversion. Meanwhile, to minimize interference and maintain signal quality, the P-3000R employs noise-reducing DIDRC technology, a vibration-resistant chassis design, and independent amplifier circuitry. Thanks to the P-3000R’s bi-amping capability, you also have greater flexibility in how you set up your system. As always, the job of all this advanced hardware is
to bring you closer to your music and let you feel the unique resonance of each individual instrument.
Music lovers rejoice! Those looking for the ultimate in CD playback from an audiophile grade component will be impressed with high-precision VQA (Vector Quantizer Audio DAC Technology) and 128x oversampling. Others looking for convenience will thrill at the sight of 6-disc capability, 6 repeat modes, 40 track programming and no worries about interruptions to your music with the ability to change 5 discs while the last one is still playing. All will marvel at crystal clear playback enhanced by our exclusive VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) for a smoother sounding audio signal and Direct Digital Path, a heavily shielded, high-quality cable to protect that same delicate audio signal from noise emitted by the surrounding circuits. Housed in a sturdy chassis graced with a brushed aluminum front panel, the DX-C390 is ready to provide hours of uninterrupted music for the soundtrack to your life.
