It analyzes your audio system and listening environment by examining acoustic data measured by the microphone and detecting deficiencies. It corrects both the timing and amplitude aspects of sound colorations using a mixed-phase correction filter throughout the listening area, not just a particular zone. Dirac Live will unlock your loudspeaker system's full potential in any listening space and delivers a uniquely pristine listening experience.
Notes: You can choose to bypass DIRAC Live and AccuEQ so you can manually set the distance, crossover, EQ, and level of each speaker.
Precision 24-Bit/192kHz DAC: The Onkyo TX-RZ50 employs 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog conversion for playback of 2ch Hi-Res audio (such as FLAC & DSD), as well a multichannel 3D audio (such as Dolby Atmos & DTS:X).
- Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (Front Channels Only): Onkyo developed Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) to reassemble the signal in its original form following processing. Unlike conventional filters, VLSC removes pulse noise generated in D/A conversion, allowing the sound wave to be reproduced with extremely high fidelity for a smooth analog signal. The signal's data is converted between sampling points and joined with analog vectors in real time to produce a smooth output wave form. The result is a virtually noiseless, smooth, analog signal that brings out even the most subtle of nuances in music sources.
- PLL Jitter-Cleaning Circuit Technology: PLL (Phase Locked Loop) jitter-cleaning circuit technology reduces jitter by comparing the input and output phases of the digital signal and creating an accurate clock waveform. This enhances the precision of digital signal processing and noticeably improves audio quality. Jitter-cleaning technology works for S/PDIF audio signals only.
- Digital Filter: You can switch the type of digital filter in the audio DAC. You can choose "Slow" (gives the sound a soft and fluid feel), "Sharp" (gives the sound more structure and firmer feel) or "Auto" (auto). The setting can be separately set for each source input. The Digital Filter only can be set when the sampling frequency is 44.1kHz or more.

THX Certified Select: guarantees the same high-volume sound you experience at a commercial theater in your home. To gain certification, amplifiers must pass the industry's most severe bench-tests covering every aspect of audio performance to satisfy THX requirements. THX spends 40-60 hours on 2,000 bench-tests in 75 categories covering 14,000 data points ensuring that the receiver is capable of meeting rigorous audio and video performance standards for reference level, distortion-free playback. THX delivers superior sound quality for movie, music, and gaming soundtracks through the use of the following advanced technologies and listening modes.
- ASA (Advanced Speaker Array): ASA is a technology patented by THX to provide a broad surround sound experience by adjusting the side and back surround speaker sounds respectively. When installing the surround back speakers, first select the distance between the two surround back speakers in the THX Audio settings. This setting optimizes the surround sound environment.
- Adaptive Decorrelation: In a movie theater, a large number of surround speakers help create an enveloping surround sound experience. If a home theater only has two sidewall surround speakers, the surround speakers may sound similar to headphones lacking spaciousness and envelopment. Surround sounds will also collapse toward the closest speaker as you move away from the middle seating position. Adaptive Decorrelation slightly changes one surround channel's time and phase relationship with respect to the other surround experience as in a movie theater using only two rear speakers.
- RE-EQ & Timbre Matching: Many movie soundtracks are mixed in studios for playback in large cinema auditoriums with an array of speakers. When played on home systems, they may appear abrasive and edgy. Re-EQ establishes a more accurate tonal balance when enjoying movies in your home. Your ears hear different tonal qualities in sounds coming from different directions. Timbre Matching restores the frequency balance between your front and surround speakers ensuring seamless and smooth panning between the front to back of the room.
- Boundary Gain Compensation (BGC) & THX Loudness Plus: Sitting near a wall may result in distorted bass response. BGC corrects the way low?frequency sound is perceived when seated near a wall. This results in a more accurate bass response. THX Loudness Plus is a volume control technology that automatically adjusts the front-to-back speaker level relationship as you turn the volume down. With THX Loudness Plus home theater audiences can now experience surround sound at any volume level.
- Listening Modes: Choose between 4 THX Listening Modes - THX Cinema, THX Game, THX Music, and THX Surround EX. THX Cinema recreates the ambiance of the movie theater by positioning the 5.1, 7.1and immersive mixes to submerse you in the movie's soundtrack. THX Game distributes the sound effects and dialogue generated by the game engine by placing the audio from a 5.1, 7.1 or immersive mix to the appropriate "action" location - creating 360-degree gaming experience. THX Music emulates the original studio environment for the 5.1, 7.1 or immersive mix for an accurate and increased sense of spaciousness and localization - placing you directly in the recording session. THX Surround EX decodes the third surround channel from the traditional two surround channels to create a more immersive entertainment experience.
