Product Description

Product Description

Onkyo's Hi-Fi revolution gathers pace with the TX-8050. This finely sculpted stereo receiver delivers two channels of audio precision to entertainment spaces where you don't need advanced video processing or multichannel audio. Analog A/V inputs on the TX-8050 are augmented by digital optical and coaxial audio inputs, a Universal Port for Onkyo peripherals, and a front-side USB input for direct digital connection of iPod /iPhone . The receiver's network capability, meanwhile, lets you stream internet radio or play audio from a PC or network audio storage device. Behind the smart aluminum façade lies a massive transformer and large capacitors that provide clean amplification power and help push performance well beyond the norm.

Take Your Stereo Wireless

Onkyo's UWF-1 Wireless LAN adaptor removes unwanted cables. This small, optional unit is worth way more than its tiny price.  Connect the UWF-1 to the USB port on any compatible 2011 Onkyo network receiver, and bring your music through your wireless router into your Onkyo system. Now internet radio and audio files stored on your PC can be played back with the superior fidelity of your main Onkyo system — with no cable clutter. A sensible and inexpensive solution.

Made for iPod/iPhone

Simply connect your iPod/iPhone via Front-Panel USB Port of the TX-NR8050 and play audio files stored on your iPod/iPhone or a USB flash drive. As the audio signals are transported in digital form, rather than analog, there is much less chance for signal degradation. The TX-8050 also incorporates Onkyo's exclusive Advanced Music Optimizer to compensate for lost bit information and improve the quality of compressed audio signals. End result: your music sounds cleaner and more faithful to the original.made for iphone

Send Stereo to the Next Room: Zone 2

multizone zone 2
Zone 2 pre-outs on the TX-8050 allow you to send a stereo audio signal to a second room equipped with an amplifier and a pair of speakers. You can either enjoy the same source in both rooms, or play a different source in Zone 2.

Spin Those Records

Works great, sounds good.
Frank Glover
You have much easier control over network access, down to the songs on your DLNA devices and internet music services.
Zeek the Geek
First it would shut off for a few hours at a time and then turn back on.

I recently built a workshop in my backyard and wired it up with a network connection and stereo speakers while I was at it. The whole time I just assumed that good networked stereo receivers would be easy to come by for not much money - but it turns out I was wrong.

After a fairly extensive search, I finally came across this little bad boy. I've never owned an Onkyo product before, but I do know they have a good reputation - so I went ahead and pulled the trigger.

Just so you know, my main usage includes listening to AM & FM as well as networked radio stations and music from my local music collection that's already on my network.

After having said all that, here are the things I like about the Onkyo TX-8050:

1) The sound is excellent! I have it hooked up to a pair of Polk OWM5 speakers and they sound very good. Just what I was looking for in my workshop.

2) The Internet radio options are very good. With the vTuner, I can tune all of the radio stations I typically listen to, and they sound better than the AM or FM broadcasts. It's easy to organize network radio stations into named categories and the station names themselves can also be renamed. Overall, it's extremely easy to keep everything organized and easy to look up.

3) Configuring this receiver to play music off my network was simple. It's simply a matter of turning on media sharing on the PC where the music files are loaded and then scrolling down to that PC in the DLNA menu. I am sharing my music from a Windows 7 system. The hard drive and USB options are great - but I prefer using the network so I don't have a bunch of USB dongles hanging off the front of the receiver...

This review was written after two weeks of ownership, and updated at 7 and 22 months.
Do I like it? Yes.
Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes.

PROS:
- very good sound quality
- solid design and construction, audio section in particular
- DLNA and Web enabled, including Apple and Android Apps (!)
- USB port for playing from an iPod, HDD, or other MSC player
- subwoofer output (see details)
- Zone 2 output (pre-amp level only)
- firmware updates via USB or internet

CONS:
- subwoofer output does not mute when using headphones (dumb!)
- occasional DLNA lockups and web station dropout (probably the station).
- the front panel button text is hard to read, but still better than most other brands.
- runs hot even at idle (no sound).
- plays WAV files from my old Maxtor NAS just fine, but can't play the same files from my new myDitto NAS (the MyDitto had very poor DLNA access anyway, I now use a new WD My Book Live NAS, which again works fine with the Onkyo)

I needed a modestly priced stereo receiver for my office and found quite a few candidates on the web including models by Sony, Sherwood, and Onkyo. A few intriguing brand X products showed up also, but the user reviews were poor enough to scare me off. Even the Sony and Sherwood models had their hate mail, so I zeroed in on the Onkyo models. Funny that I should buy Onkyo again because I chose an Onkyo model for our 7.1 home theater system a couple of years ago.

The Onkyo TX-8050 was twice what I was planning to pay, but the networking caught my eye. With that feature I can listen to internet radio and music from my NAS without turning on my PC.

Bought this receiver and matched it up with a pair of Paradigm Atoms w/ Auralex speaker platforms. This was for a bedroom set-up and the unit and speakers sit on a 2x dresser. I was expecting an average sound and got much more.

Pros:
1. Plays FLAC via a NTFS USB Powered Hard Drive. The hard drive I use is 640 GB. It reads the Hard Drive relatively quickly (15 sec) and scrolls through the folders very quickly.
2. Adding the receiver to the network is easy - just enter your WEP - done. You can stream WMP and with the program Jamcast you can stream Spotify, MOG, etc via DLNA. Has Pandora, MyRhapsody and some other programs already installed on the receiver. Entering your username and password for those services using a dial is probably the most painstaking effort for setting it up.
3. Most important - it sounds GREAT. I was worried about having a lean sound with Atoms and Onkyo. However, it's actually quite warm. It could be that it's in a carpeted bedroom, but whatever works. The sound optimizer for playing MP3s works well overall in smoothing out the clipping MP3s have especially in those low kb bit rates from Pandora, etc. There's only so much that can be done on low bit rate streaming.

Cons:
There are several, but minor and wouldn't change my mind from recommending it. None of these issues are related to the sound, but just convenience.
1. No subwoofer cut-off capability. I don't feel my set-up needs a subwoofer, but if it's important to you.
2. No backlighting on the control.
3. Hard Drive doesn't shut off when the receiver is off. You'll have to unplug from USB when you are done.
4. The Android App really doesn't do much except change the volume and change the input.
