Old-school stereo listening meets two-channel home theater
Home theater receivers are fantastic, but if you don’t want to fill your living room with speakers, you’re left with a lot of unused connections. Onkyo’s TX-8270 is an awesome stereo option that works with today’s TVs and video components. Plus it has all the features serious music listeners are after.
This smart receiver lets you enjoy both digital and analog music sources. Onkyo’s low-distortion Wide Range Amplification Technology gives you authentic, dynamic sound. The receiver’s 32-bit/384kHz DAC helps bring out the best in any digital audio format, from high-resolution audio files to streamed music.
All the right connections
The TX-8270 has ample connections for your audio gear, from CD players to cassette decks. A dedicated phono input gives you a direct connection for a turntable. Front- and rear-panel USB ports gives you convenient access to digital music files stored on a thumb drive. Four 4K-compliant HDMI inputs let you hook up your TV and Blu-ray player, plus a game console, PC, or streaming media device.
Wireless capability expands your listening options
When it comes to music, we understand there’s no such thing as too many choices. The TX-8270’s networking capability lets you play songs from your personal digital music library, but why stop there? Support for the most popular streaming services like Pandora®, Spotify®, and SiriusXM opens up an abundance of new listening options.
Listen to internet radio stations anywhere in the world via TuneIn radio. Apple AirPlay 2 lets you stream music from a compatible Apple device, while Bluetooth lets you stream from nearly any phone, tablet, or computer. The receiver remembers up to eight Bluetooth-enabled devices, so family and friends can share their music too.
Music in different rooms
Playback from such a capable music receiver shouldn’t be confined to just one room, so the TX-8270 gives you the ability to spread your music through different parts of the house. A/B speaker connections mean you can add a second pair of speakers in another room or outdoor area. Or use the Zone 2 preamp outputs to connect a power amp and speakers in a different room. (You can play the same source in both zones, or a different source in Zone 2.) A dedicated DAC for Zone 2 lets you enjoy digital sources and even streamed music outside of your main listening area.
A convenient control app ties it all together
Onkyo’s free Remote app for iOS® and Android™ lets you control your music with your phone or tablet from any room in the house. The app lets you switch sources and control volume, along with adjusting bass and treble settings. It also shows you a list of supported streaming services to choose from, giving you full control over them from within the app.
