Marantz Cinema 30 vs Onkyo TX-RZ70

The New Marantz Cinema 30 vs Onkyo TX-RZ70 - A Detailed AVR Comparison

In the ever-evolving world of home entertainment, the launch of a new AV receiver is always an event worth noting. The recent launch of the Marantz Cinema 30 in 2024 has set audiophiles and home cinema enthusiasts abuzz, especially when compared to its predecessor in excellence, like Onkyo TX-RZ70, AVC-X8500HA  which hit the market in 2023 and earlier. Apart from their similar capabilities in my opinion the notable difference is in their power delivery systems. The Marantz Cinema 30, steps ahead with its use of an 835VA toroidal transformer, a key differentiator that promises cleaner power output and less electrical interference, potentially setting a new benchmark in audio fidelity for the industry. 

We’ve compiled a detailed comparison of their specifications to help you make an informed decision.
