Featuring premium audio components, the Onkyo TX-RZ840 delivers music and soundtracks to the highest standards.
The musical AV receiver
When it comes to sound quality, Onkyo’s engineers have set about making the TX-RZ840 something special. The combination of a mighty power transformer and custom, 15,000uF capacitors means this premium Onkyo AV receiver delivers effortless, musical control. With a mighty 215 watts per channel (at 6 ohms/10% THD), this receiver remains unfazed by any soundtrack or music - for thunderous cinema sound that also sounds smooth and detailed.
Dynamic Audio Amplification for thrilling sound
Featuring DAA (Dynamic Audio Amplification), the TX-RZ840 delivers incredibly punchy sound all the way from 5 – 100,000 Hz. Combined with the High Current power supply and extra-large, customised capacitors, it means the TX-RZ840 produces a thrilling sound that keeps you pinned to your seat when the action gets intense.
Certified for IMAX Enhanced*
IMAX has collaborated with DTS and award-winning Hollywood sound mixers to deliver stunning levels of sound quality. Just as with THX, only the highest quality home cinema equipment meets the standard. IMAX enhanced content is due on HDR streaming and UHD Blu-ray and promises to offer the next step-up in sound from the already impressive DTS:X. *IMAX Enhanced will be enabled via a future firmware update.
THX Certification Select – your guarantee of cinema quality sound
THX Certification Select means that the TX-RZ840 meets the tough standards set by THX for high-volume, low-distortion sound. Awarded only to the finest AV receivers, the TXRZ840’s powerful and dynamic cinema sound keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Stunning Dolby Atmos/DTS:X with 5.2.4 channels and ready for 7.2.4 with pre-outs
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X use ceiling or up-firing speakers for three-dimensional and fully immersive sound. Equipped with 5.2.4 channels, the TXRZ840 maximises the potential of both formats. Choose between four ceiling speakers with five effects or seven effect speakers and two ceilings. For the ultimate sound, use the 7.2.4 pre-outs with an outboard power amp and enjoy cinema-rivalling sound immersion.
Extra height, without the speakers - Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization and DTS Virtual:X*
As great as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound, it’s not always possible to accommodate the extra speakers. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization and DTS Virtual:X fix this. Play any Dolby format and enjoy a more immersive sound with virtual height enhancement – using your existing speakers. DTS Virtual:X also creates a more enveloping sound from any DTS codec. Compatible with 2, 5.1 or 7.1 speaker configurations, DTS Virtual:X gives the impression of height and immersive sound. *Both functions available with future firmware update.
Supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG and BT.2020 standards
The Onkyo TXRZ840 is the perfect partner for your HDR-equipped TV and video sources. It supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, BT.2020 and HDCP 2.2, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be powered up.
Three zone, multi-room flexibility
With a 5.2 channel cinema system in play, you can use the spare channels to add two additional powered zones. Zone 2 and Zone 3 can either be synced with the main signal for ‘party’ sound or play from separate sources – giving the TXRZ840 true multi-room appeal. Passive outputs for Zone 2 and 3 are also available should you already have amplification or active speakers.
Stream it your way, with Apple AirPlay 2 and ‘Works with SONOS’
Much more than just an AV receiver, the TX-RZ840 is also a comprehensive music streamer. Apple AirPlay 2 is now standard as is ‘Works with SONOS’. Integrated Amazon Music, Spotify (Premium account required for full features), TIDAL and Deezer are all standard. There’s also Chromecast, FlareConnect and DTS Play-Fi plus TuneIn for Internet radio and Bluetooth music streaming.
Works with Apple AirPlay 2
AirPlay 2 takes this popular wireless streaming format and makes it better. Controllable by simply asking Siri or using your Apple device, AirPlay 2 lets you effortlessly stream music and podcasts around your home – and all in perfect sync.
Works with SONOS
Link up to a SONOS Connect and the TX-RZ840 becomes integrated into your SONOS system. You can group the receiver with other SONOS devices or use it independently. Working with SONOS means as soon as you start playing music from your SONOS app, the Onkyo switches on and selects the correct input – automatically.
Chromecast with Google Assistant
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Alternatively, use Google Assistant and this Onkyo AV receiver becomes part of your voice controlled smart home.
DTS Play-Fi for effortless streaming and multi-room
DTS Play-Fi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app and you'll not only have access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and Napster. As well as bringing all your streaming sources together, Play-Fi offers the potential for full multi-room music.

When used with compatible FlareConnect speakers, you can listen to your treasured vinyls and CDs in any room. Music selection, speaker grouping and playback control is all built-in to the Onkyo Controller App for effortless smartphone or tablet control.
The video hub
Featuring six HDMI inputs at the back, plus a further front-mounted socket, the TX-RZ840 is equipped for full-on systems. Twin HDMI outlets include a second, Zone 2, for independent outputs. Zone 2 audio can also be outputted via active or passive outlets. The TX-RZ840 goes above the more basic models in also offering component and composite video inputs for older devices.
The audio hub, too
When it comes to connecting all your music sources the Onkyo has, again, got everything covered – right down to your turntable. As well as the turntable input there are six line level ones – ideal for a CD player, music streamer and many other music sources. There are also digital coaxial and optical inputs plus a USB (rear) for media playback.
