Onkyo Adds and Expands Online Music Support for 2011 Receivers

Posted Wed Aug 10, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

You'll find a service called AUPEO!, Spotify, and expanded support for Last.fm.

It's easy to think of your home theater as something that's used for watching movies and not much else, but depending on your setup it can be an impressive music player too. The folks over at Onkyo have added quite a bit of new functionality to their 2011 receiver lineup that makes it even easier to enjoy the music you love and find more artists to enjoy.

AUPEO! is a new addition to all 2011 receivers. It may not be as familiar a name as Last.fm and Spotify, but the service offers 120 specialized music channels, custom made channels, artist specific channels and a Mood Selector that matches music to suit your mood.

Spotify is new to the lineup as well, debuting on Onkyo receivers just as the service came online for US residents. The service can be used on a free or subscription basis, with different tiers depending on what you want from Spotify.

Finally, Onkyo has expanded Last.fm support to all of its 2011 receivers - it was previously only available on certain models.
