Furthermore, with the release of the Onkyo Remote 2, iPod touch/iPhone users are now able to control output in individual zones in a multi-room distributed audio set-up.

Available as a free download, the application offers a number of benefits to Onkyo home theater and hi-fi owners, not least among them the ability to quickly and easily access commonly used controls. These include play, stop, skip, and pause; volume, bass, and treble adjustment; listening mode and input source selection; network source selection; and radio station.

The Onkyo Remote 2 app is compatible with all network-ready Onkyo A/V receivers released in 2011 and 2010, as well as the TX-8050 Network Stereo Receiver. (Earlier models may require a firmware update.)
