The Remote App’s graphical user interface (GUI) makes it extremely easy and intuitive to operate. Use simple menus to choose an input source and one of four different listening modes, including music, movies, or games. It’s also easy to make a full range of tone and speaker adjustments.
Wireless Music Streaming
Operating over a wireless local network, the app allows you to stream music stored on an Android phone to your Onkyo network audio system. Music played through an Onkyo system gains far greater power and fidelity.
Using the Remote App, you can control output in separate zones in a multi-room distributed audio set-up. The app lets you choose the playback source for up to three zones, depending on your A/V receiver’s capabilities.
Easy Setup Menu Control
Selecting the setup menu feature on your Android phone makes the A/V receiver’s main menu page appear overlaid on your home theater display. You can then access a variety of menus that let you adjust settings on your connected Onkyo receiver.
