Press Release dated: 29 Aug 2017

Amplifying a wide selection of easy-access sources for playback through any loudspeakers, the TX-8250 Network Stereo Receiver and TX-8220 Stereo Receiver from Onkyo are an excellent value proposition for music, film, and game lovers.

TX-8250 combines Wide Range Amplification Technology with universal network streaming and multi-room audio over 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi®, along with Hi-Res Audio*1 playback, digital inputs for TV/BD/CD, USB Audio, and an MM phono input. Digital connectivity is joined by six gold-plated line-level inputs, Zone 2 pre-/line output, and Bluetooth® wireless technology.

Network and multi-room audio support includes Chromecast built-in, FireConnect™*2 powered by Blackfire, and DTS Play-Fi®*3 technology; Spotify®, TIDAL, Deezer, and TuneIn music streaming services*4; and house-wide playback management via Onkyo Controller*5 app for iOS and Android™ devices.

Chromecast built-in allows users to stream any music effortlessly. Playback is controlled with popular Chromecast-enabled apps from an iPhone®, iPad®, Android phone and tablet, Mac® and Windows® laptop, or Chromebook™. TX-8250 also works with the Google Assistant.

Multi-room capability goes further with FireConnect™ to mirror network and analog sources connected to the receiver, such as vinyl records playing in the main listening space, on FireConnect™-ready speakers in other rooms.

DTS Play-Fi technology enables streaming from online services, media server, or device library over Wi-Fi to any number of compatible products via Onkyo Music Control App*6 for iPad, iPhone, and Android phone/tablet. DTS Play-Fi connects systems for synchronized music in every room, and can stream different music to different rooms from the same device.

Users of iTunes and compatible apps can stream over AirPlay from Apple iOS devices, PC, and Mac. Further content integrates via FM/RDS tuners and supplied USB DAB Adapter (UDB-1, also available separately). Up to 40 stations can be saved and named, with four of these accessible via easy front-panel buttons—touch to power up and play from a preset station *7.

TX-8250 offers 135 W + 135 W (6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 1% THD, 1 channel driven, IEC) delivered via high-current low-impedance analog amplification featuring discrete output transistors, non-phase-shift amp circuitry, and massive EI transformer with custom capacitors holding power in reserve for instant dynamic response. 

Quality D/A processing from AKM supports 192 kHz/24-bit Hi-Res Audio playback via LAN and USB, as well as Direct DSD 2.8/5.6 MHz playback.

For those that don’t require network capability, but want similarly outstanding audio quality and wide connectivity, the TX-8220 Stereo Receiver generates 100 W + 100 W (6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 1% THD, 1 channel driven)of wideband stereo power, and boasts two digital audio inputs, five line-level inputs, and subwoofer pre-out to enhance super-low bass.

The receiver includes Bluetooth wireless audio streaming technology with Auto Connect for preconfigured devices. Stable, low-latency transmission makes music streamed from virtually any application sound fuller, fatter, and more detailed.

TX-8220 also opens the door to authentic analog amplification for vinyl with inclusion of an MM phono equalizer for turntable. As the center of lively home entertainment, it also adds a built-in FM/RDS and DAB+ tuner for digital radio. 

Speaker A+B and A/B drive capability lets radio, music, even the TV sport play through another pair of speakers in the kitchen, bedroom, or garage. 

Housed inside a robust chassis, Onkyo’s standard-setting Wide Range Amplification Technology serves the rich, agile, and detailed sound that quality entertainment deserves.Both receivers bring connectivity and usability to a level unmatched in their respective classes, and provide Onkyo customers with a satisfying daily return on investment.
