Onkyo Expands Music Streaming Options for its 2012 AV Receivers

Press Release dated: 17 Jul 2012

Recognizing the importance of music streaming to today's tech-savvy consumers, Onkyo has added streaming capabilities to its remote control apps for the iPhone and Android/Kindle platforms, and introduced an aptX USB Bluetooth adaptor that provides similar capabilities through a hardware pathway.

The upgraded Onkyo Remote 2 App for iPod and iPhone will allow users to stream music stored on their iPod, iTouch or iPhone directly to Onkyo's 2012 model networked receivers (as well as networked stereo tuners, receivers and micro systems), through their wireless home network. The improved Onkyo Remote App for Android now also supports streaming music directly from the Kindle Fire.

These upgraded remote control apps include support for high-performance lossless file formats favoured by audiophiles* including Apple Lossless as well as full metadata (including album artwork) transfer. In addition, these new apps will also now have the ability to control remote zone functions and support music playback in these zones.

At the same time that it's upgrading its Apps Onkyo is also now shipping its UBT-1 Bluetooth USB Adapter. This will allow Bluetooth-enabled wireless phones, tablets and other devices to stream music direct to Onkyo’s 2012 network receivers.

The Onkyo UBT-1 adapter is configured with CSR's aptX™ compression reduction codec which restores the natural dynamic range to audio files. It provides a remarkably flat frequency response over a 10Hz to 22kHz bandwidth, a dynamic range of 92 dB, and algorithmic delay of less than 1.89ms. It also uses the latest version of Bluetooth (3.0) with improved audio bandwidth capability to deliver sound quality approaching that of compact disc.

The Onkyo UBT-1, which is similar in size and looks to a USB flash drive, plugs into the front USB port of a 2012 Onkyo Network receiver (models TX-NR414 and higher). Once the adapter finds a Bluetooth pairing with the wireless device, all the user has to do is hit 'play' on their music software. The adapter supports the AAC file format. Control functions include Auto Power-On and Direct Input Change function on hybrid standby status.

The improved Remote Control Apps are free, and will be available 24th July 2012 from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

*Onkyo Remote 2 App supports all the audio formats currently used by the iPhone except DRM-protected content: AAC (8-320kbps), HE-AAC, MP3(8-320 kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible( format 2,3,4 Audible Enhanced audio, AAX, AAX+), WAV, AIFF, and Apple Lossless. Audio data is converted to 16bit/44.1kHz PCM before streaming
