latest firmware updates for your onkyo avr's released on 14th Jan 2021.   https://www.intl.onkyo.com/support/firmware/index.html

Didn't realise Onkyo also implemented preamp mode in the latest firmware.  Can turn off power amp for Front L+R, Front L+R+C, and all speakers. Thought only Denon has this. Quite useful.   H

morning guys!

jus finished the firmware update via internet.

it say on the screen that it will take 30mins for the update..

but it actually only took 2mins in total for my set to be updated.

i used the Lan cable(1GBps internet connection), not wireless option.

started at 7.27am, n finished it at 7.29am.

then i did a total master reset.(A bad habit of mine!!) u actually don't need to do this!!

now comes the hooking n cabling session!!

gonna take my time to do it, with regular smoke breaks.

hehehehehe!!!

all done up!! "7.2.8" setup.... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

at last....

AccuEQ has been revamped..

it took about 8-10mins to finish up...(so many different kinds of tonal freq sounds!!)

it does standing wave eq too...( i really don't know what in the hell is that, but it did it!)

it gives u 3 different scenarios (3 different standing wave to choose from.)

in the settings, "Phase Matching Bass" is gone...

no more of that setting anywhere to be seen.

sound quality wise...Hmmmmm....

very "Pioneer" is wat i can say..

its all Class D amp's in it..

n onkyo has taken over pioneer, so i guess they mash it up together...

it definitely can push my Usher speakers..

200watts of pure class d amplification...per channel..(i believe the power transformer is no more torrodial in design, it looks to me like a r-core?? i dunno... must wait for internet pics of it opened up)

my "8" daisy chained ceiling speakers rang out clear n precise too..( no problems handling them 8 speakers up there!!)

overall rating out of 5, i will give this new onkyo a 3.8 out of 5

 

my rz900 with Class AB amps, i would give it a 4.2 out 5...

so here is my take on this new line that onkyo has come out with.

cheers guys!!!

Oh no....

I used to Onkyo's style that's why I feel Pioneer LX-89 sounded flat to my ears.

What will be your rating when compare with your previous 3030? didn't you miss its capabilities?

:-\

Seems RZ3100 is 'good looking" AVR which adopted from Pioneer but  giving up signature of ONKYO which is "power/dynamic"

:'(

the rz900 still has the onkyo signature sound...

it will be the last in line with latest codec to do so..

the onkyo sound signature survives only with the rz900...

 

if u google search the latest top range pioneer lx901 n compare pics of the internals with the latest top range onkyo rz3100, they are basically identical!!

the 3030 is a dead n gone avr for me as it can never be updated to the latest audio codecs...

only Atmos... no DTSX...

so i won't compare it at all, if u ask me..

dead n buried in my eyes..

only can compare the rz900 vs the rz3100...

mid-range vs top-range...

unfair i know, but not much choice left.
