Onkyo Adds More Streaming Options to 2012 Receivers and Launches a Bluetooth Adapter

Posted Tue Jul 17, 2012 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Onkyo's new remote apps for Kindle, iOS and Android allow for wireless streaming.

Audio streaming was a luxury feature just a few years back, but it's become a standard on all but the entry-level. The folks at Onkyo know just how important it is and have added new ways to stream music.

Whether you have a Kindle Fire, iOS device or Android device, you can stream music directly to your receiver thanks to Onkyo Remote apps. iOS users get the better setup thanks to the Onkyo Remote 2 app, which allows CD quality streaming and metadata.

Onkyo has also launched a new Bluetooth adapter known as the UBT-1. It plugs right in to the USB port of your receiver and allows you to play music from a Bluetooth device to your receiver. You can pick up the adapter for $59. It's currently available for $49 on Amazon.
