FYI---My last 2 Onkyos literally went up in flames...the older one was just a loss and the newer one was returned for a different brand. I use to love them...
Mmmm, yesterday I receive the notification that the drop was active for next 5 days, now I enter and say it is inactive... Any idea what is going on here? Is there any max. number of items available and then the drop becames inactive?

Same here what gives
These things look like a beast.
However maybe someone can give me advice? I have a 13' long by 9' wide room for my home theatre, I have the seating and projector and everything. Would something like this and save up for speakers be a better deal, or would a home theater in a box be sufficient for my space? I'm trying to get the best bang for the buck.

I have had the same Onkyo receiver for years. I can’t even remember how long but it’s been YEARS. It’s allowed me to expand my home theater as my budget allowed. I would never get a theater in a box. Any one of these theee receivers would be great.
I would upgrade to one of these models if I had a 4K tv and needed the latest version of HDMI.

Kinda what part of me is thinking. Stereo equipment has followed people for decades and I think the same could go for a great unit.
Does 4 ohm certified mean that these will work with 4 ohm speakers?
Phillyzw
No. Speaker impedance as reported is an average. A single speaker has an impedance that changes with frequency played. 4 ohm certified means it can drive speakers that transiently dip down to 4 ohm but are on average above that. A speaker with an average of 4 ohms may have dips down to 2 ohms which this amp cant do.
I wouldnt use these with anything other than 8 ohm speakers. Look at those 6 ohm specs: 10% THD!!! Might as well listen to speakers from a cell phone at that point.
We need some Denon love in here.
Prices are already dropping so fast on these, that this isn't a deal anymore. Example, on 09/07/18, Best Buy has the RZ730 for $649. I see an open box in excellent condition for $551! Wow. I'm going to wait until the end of the year to see how low the prices can go on these 9.2 receivers.

Are you sure you saw the 730 and not the 787 (also 9.2)? Best buy doesn't even have the 730 on their website.
Really need to know if Massdrop counts as an authorized reseller. My current onkyo just lost all sound, and onkyo remedy for this ( as it is out of warranty) is to offer a mail in rebate if I purchase a new receiver from a list ..all 3 of these are on the list. The additional functions of these receivers would make the hassles worth it.

Upgrades, I beg to differ. Lift your old receiver now lift the newer units. My older Onkyo receiver ways over 80lbs. In case you haven't noticed manufactures are skimping on things like the power supply. My older Onkyo receiver has a massive toroidal power supply. Just one of the things that makes it so much heavier. My older Onkyo is THX Ultra (not THX Select) certified. In order to give customers all of the new audio formats like Dolby Atmos, and DTS++ and video enhancements like Dolby Vision, manufacturers have been skimping on things like a high quality power supply, and minor things like an A.C. Outlet on the back of their units. How many people still use component inputs anymore? Component inputs are analog and their color is over saturated. I purchased two of the newest flagship receivers on the market...Onkyo and Yamaha because I wanted Dolby Atmos, and DTS++. I returned both of them because they couldn't hold a candle to my older Onkyo receiver. One last thing, Onkyo’s customer service SUX!!! The only reason I continue to purchase Onkyo merchandise is because I haven’t found anything that sounds as good imho. ONKYO...get rid of features that most customers will never use, and put a better power supply back in your receivers!

Totally agree with Vital - I'm on my 3rd or 4th Onkyo in 15 years - each purchased to 'upgrade'. Each one gets lighter. That said, other than one 'under warranty' issue, they've been reliable and FOR THE MONEY offer good quality. There's much better to be had, for way more money than I am prepared to spend in the compromised acoustic environment of my family room - no home theater room :(
Will Onkyo honor warranty for these in Canada? I've purchased an Onkyo receiver in the US before and Onkyo did NOT honor the warranty in Canada stating that this was because it was not purchased in Canada. This is classic market segmentation strategy and is one way to keep prices higher in one market compared to other markets. It's a terrible business practice and have left me with a bitter taste in the mouth with regards to Onkyo. In any case, it should be stated clearly if warranty is US only or not.
I don't know much about these types of devices. I do know that Onkyo is a great brand. I also know, after reviewing on Amazon that these are ROCKING PRICES for these units. The RZ630 lists currently for $659.95USD, the RZ730 for $899.95, and the RZ830 for $949.95. Buyer reviews for Onkyo units, on average, seem to rate them around 4 stars. The 2 reviews for the RZ830 averaged to 2 stars. I did not read them.
I find often, reviews, especially for technologically advanced items, to be read with a grain-of-salt, so to speak. Because often, people either don't fully read setup instructions, or don't understand them.
Does anyone have a summary of the differences between the three models? There's a lot of specs to wade through there.

The Onkyo website has a great comparison tool right on the main AVR page.

Is Massdrop an "authorized seller" by/for Onkyo? If not, Onkyo WILL NOT honor any type of warranty on their electronics from an "unauthorized" seller. I purchased a receiver from a different retailer and after several years the main board flaked out. I contacted Onkyo for repair since it was within the warranty period. However, Onkyo required a purchase receipt. When I provided said receipt I was informed that I have purchased the unit from an unauthorized retailer and the warranty was null and void. SO, I was stuck with a 20 pound paper weight.

The ad says its covered.
If my Denon hadn't come back to life, I might of been interested in this. One thing, really glad they have the big volume knob. Feels good powering on a receiver and adjusting the volume from the unit knob and not from a remote or with buttons.
