Owners of some Onkyo receivers can now control them using their Sonos products.

Following a firmware update, a selection of Onkyo products allows users to seamlessly stream music using the Sonos home sound system through Sonos Connect, creating the ultimate multi-room audio set-up,’ said Richard Neale, General Manager of Amber Technology, which distributes Onkyo in Australia

Onkyo receivers with ‘Works with Sonos’ certification can now be part of an existing SONOS Home Sound System or become the start of a new one. Once set-up, the receiver can use any Sonos interface allowing users to switch input sources, adjust volume level, and group the receiver with other Sonos devices sharing the same network.

Compatible Onkyo models are the TX-8270, TX-NR686, TX-RZ1100, TX-RZ3100, PR-RZ5100, TX-RZ730 and TX-RZ830.
