  • OP (or anyone that wishes to comment),

    How does this compare with the Onkyo TX-NR686?

  • Surely hdmi 2.1 AVRs coming this year?

  •  

    Great amp and heaps of power…THX Certified too. Thanks for the post guys!

    • Hey @FunkyDan, this is not specifically directed at RIO's charges (well, actually you tell me…) but I was just wondering what causes us in Aust. to get shafted on HiFi prices in general - is it taxes, import duties, or something else? I mean, most of this comes on the slow boat from China, so we are closer than a lot of other markets so you'd think it would be cheaper.

      eg. I bought a TX-RZ820 this time last year (from the U.S.) for $720 US…

      Why are they so much more exxy here?!?

      • I’ve always had a eye on amps since my Onkyo 606 (with hdmi faukts) just manages to hang in there.

        Overseas is ALWAYS cheaper. I’m bummed I missed the a denon x4400h model in uk few months ago for around $1k aud it’s 9.2 - aka Atmos 5.2.4. Remaining models here are $2300!!!!

        Au is Always screwed.

        • Yeah, I know OS is always much cheaper - that's my point, and also why I bought from the U.S. - I just want to understand why ?!?

          • @manicmoose: Australia tax I guess.

            So you run a transformer on it 24/7. No issues? Always worried bout that.
            Our home theatre is on most days 4 hours. Not super long. But worried about extra transformer.

            • @naphman: Sure do, I have a decent (Aust) step down - this one from: Tortech - the 1010W model, which has fuse protection and built like a tank with 2 sockets.

              All the settings in the Onkyo can be configured for Oz locality.

              Edit: Forgot to answer you question - no issues whatsoever. The receiver works well, and the tranny makes zero noise and works a treat.

    Well to be honest the goods need to come in and there are taxes and duties which must be paid. Plus everything that comes in must have Australian certified tick of approval (CTick) this costs, then they have to place a cost on warranty as it may need a service. Where as you buy from OS then you have no warranty here plus the stock is not approved by the Australian Government so…in case of a fire or something that causes a short throughout the house…you are not covered..personally for a few extra bucks I think for the peace of mind I would buy through the right channels. RIO only buys fromn Authorised and legal distributors our buying power now is helping to bring some good deals on some awesome products and when you do the exchange it's not that far off…

    • Sure, I understand your POV if you are buying a dodgy-brothers product, but quality brands like Onkyo where the only diff. between the Oz/US versions is the transformer/powersupply, then the CTICK is a joke. Purely a rubber stamp/money making exercise where the Aussie consumers are the ones to suffer.

      Yes, the warranty is one thing, but when you consider that I got the 820 (with a quality step-down transformer) for $1100 AU, when at the time the 820's here were $1850 locally, it's hard to overlook importing.
      Fire related insurance declined due to running US gear - I've never heard of anyone being penalised in this way. Be interested to hear if you have - confirmed cases, not hearsay.

      If it breaks, you can still get them repaired, and it's unlikely the repair would be $750 or more, so even then you still come out in front.

      I've bought stuff from RIO in Hampton several times, including an amp., and speakers (separately).
      I assess the local prices and where it makes sense to buy locally, I do. In the case of my 820 it was not even close, but I am still constantly frustrated that products such as these are WAY more expensive locally. I'm sure you guys aren't thrilled either.

    We are very pro parity in prices and glad to hear your a RIO client :) thank you!
    This is the reason why we couldnt sell other brands and we dumped them due to this over inflated RRP..but if you look through ie RZ810 - $1499 (820 we had at $1799) we really try hard to push through and get great deals…if you are paying thousands more then sure but we are talking a couple of hundred and peace of mind.with regards to fire hazard..get onto energy safe website and there are cases plus warnings.3 year warranty and keeping aussie jobs plus peace of mind I think is a great thing.thanks again for the post:) and really appreciate the opportunity to chat out there

  • Op or rep, what's the major difference, if any, between this and the 710? Just a refresh with same specs or anything of actual significance?

    RZ 710 and RZ 720 very similar just a few tweaks on the 720
