A receiver for fans of both digital and analog music
You still have a turntable and maybe a cassette deck, but you're not living in the past. Your collection includes today's digital music formats as well. And this has made finding the right receiver a real challenge — until now.
For years, Onkyo's stereo receivers have won raves from our customers for their terrific sound quality. The TX-8050 boasts 80 watts per channel of clean, high-current power to deliver a powerful sonic punch that's sure to satisfy. Sure, it has RCA inputs for your turntable and cassette deck but the '8050 also boasts a full complement of analog video and digital audio inputs. Plus it adds the connections you need for today's music sources.
Give your iPod® a front-row seat
A music library used to take two friends and a moving van to carry around. Now you can simply put it in your pocket. The TX-8050's front-panel USB port beckons your iPod to come hither. Its direct digital connection bypasses the iPods processing in favor of a 32-bit chip that can make your higher bit-rate music files sound closer to the original CD. Plus, you can download a free app that lets you use your iPhone® as a convenient Wi-Fi® remote with your connected receiver.
Network- and Internet-ready
Tap in to your home network and enjoy music stored on your PC through your main system, instead of through pint-sized computer speakers. And if you have a Wi-Fi® network, you can use the optional Onkyo USB adapter. Choose from thousands of Internet radio stations — or let PANDORA® Internet radio create a set of customized "stations" based on your own tastes.
Finally — a not-too-bright idea
You've seen it before. How could you not? Receiver displays so intense they could be used to warn ships at sea of potential hazards. Yet your living room is not exactly a craggy shoal. The TX-8050 display has three settings — normal, dim and dimmer. Now when you want to turn the lights down for atmosphere, your receiver will go as easy on your eyes as it does on your ears.
