Onkyo PR-RZ5100 Surround Processor Review

Audio Performance Features Ergonomics Value PRICE $2,399 AT A GLANCE Plus Unimpeachable audio and basic video quality Generally good ergonomic design Eminently useful pop-up Quick Menu Minus No aptX for Bluetooth Local-streaming audio doesn’t display file type/sampling info Fairly downscaled remote THE VERDICT Onkyo’s latest A/V preamp/processor adds the Dolby Atmos/DTS:X and 4K/HDR capabilities needed to bring the brand’s pre/pro current, while maintaining very solid value in the field. The A/V preamp/processors from Onkyo (and sister brand Integra) have been through five or six generations over the years, and I think I’ve tested or at least used just about all of them. And for that decade-plus span, my overall reaction to them has remained pretty consistent: all the A/V-system quarterbacking any rational being needs at a fair price. Onkyo’s latest iteration, the PR-RZ5100 network A/V controller, seems unlikely to change that conclusion while updating the series to 11.2-channel, 4K/HDR status.
