Onkyo and Pioneer Add New Sonos Functionality to Select AVRs


Onkyo USA announced today a new firmware update that will enable volume control of select Onkyo and Pioneer ELITE AV receivers via the Sonos app. Full details can be found in the press release below:

Onkyo USA Corporation, a leading independent distributor of renowned home audio brands, today announced a new firmware update that enables select Onkyo and Pioneer ELITE receivers to have Sonos Volume Pass Through capabilities.

The update allows owners to control the receiver's volume through the Sonos app on their phone or other device.  No more need to worry about presetting the volume level on the receiver or potential issues related to the presence of multiple volume controls, and owners can control the volume from anywhere in their house.

The following models will be automatically upgraded with the new functionality:

Onkyo Models                                                   Pioneer ELITE Models

TX-NR696                                                            VSX-LX304

TX-NR797                                                            VSX-LX504

TX-RZ740                                                             SC-LX704

TX-RZ840                                                             SC-LX904

These AV receivers are the world's first and only ones that can manage and route up to 3 Sonos Ports or Connects without a control system.  The innovative incorporation of the Sonos ecosystem into home theater systems underscores Onkyo USA's ongoing commitment in providing features that offer the long-term solutions home theater users are seeking.
