In addition, the app enables wireless audio streaming from handset, online music service, NAS, and personal computer. The user can control playback across multiple zones as well as adjust most system settings from almost anywhere in the home. Furthermore, the application is compatible with Onkyo’s RI system, allowing control of multiple components within a system.

Onkyo Remote for Android provides a simple way for you to control how your compatible Onkyo network A/V receiver or hi-fi product connects to the home network, as well as online audio services such as Spotify. A simple menu within the app enables access to a variety of internet radio and music streaming services. You can browse playlists, search for specific albums and tracks, or select an internet radio station all from your handset, sending content to the home theater or audio system with a few taps on the touchscreen. Using the same menu, you can locate and stream your own digital music—including FLAC and Apple Lossless formats—from PC or NAS using the DLNA or Home Media functions.*
