Firmware Update Brings Advanced Features to Onkyo, Integra, and Pioneer AVRs

Premium Audio Company (PAC), the entity behind Onkyo, Pioneer, and Integra brand AV receivers, today announced a firmware update to improve functionality and connectivity for a number of Integra, Onkyo, and Pioneer AVRs.

With the update, Onkyo, Integra, and Pioneer receivers gain additional on-screen and app displays intended to enhance the overall user experience and improve gaming. HDMI source-based tone mapping information has been added to the AVR’s info (video) display and “gaming awareness” specs have been added to the on-screen display so gamers can see feedback on Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) to ensure settings are correct. The update includes minor improvements in overall system stability and Bluetooth connectivity as well.

AV receiver models that get these updates include…
• Onkyo TX-RZ70, TX-RZ50, TX-NR7100, TX-NR6100, TX-NR5100, and TX-NR6050
• Integra DRX 8.4, DRX-5.4, DRX-3.4, and DRX-2.4
• Pioneer Elite VSX-LX805, VSX-LX505, VSX-LX305, VSX-LX105, and VSX-LX935.

The firmware update also includes the new Klipsch Optimized Mode, which includes the precise crossover values used for a wide range of Klipsch speakers including models in the acclaimed Reference Premiere series. Klipsch is owned by PAC. Selecting the mode from the AVR’s menu is said to eliminate guesswork and arbitrary settings assigned by automated room-calibration systems. AVRs getting the Klipsch Optimized Mode include the Onkyo TX-RZ70, TX-RZ50, TX-NR7100, TX-NR6100, TX-NR5100, and TX-NR6050 in addition to the Integra DRX-8.4, DRX-5.4, DRX-3.4, and DRX-2.4.

Integra AV receivers — models DRX 8.4, DRX-5.4, DRX-3.4, and DRX-2.4 — are also recipients of “significantly expanded” IP-based custom integration features, including the ability to adjust HDCP timing across connected devices and the addition of bandwidth to the sink test for determining maximum signal resolution over cable runs. Other updates include input skip functionality to minimize user error and the ability to compare Dirac response curves more easily on AVRs equipped with the popular room-correction algorithm.
