Onkyo Tx8050 Quick Specs
Quality Stereo Audio with Added Network Functionality
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.

Onkyo Remote App for iPod/iPhone*
The TX-8050 employs a host of proprietary Onkyo
technologies to ensure optimal audio performance.
Available as a free download, this app lets you use your
iPod touch or iPhone as a remote controller to control a
range of functions on the TX-8050. As well as letting you
select internet radio stations, it also lets you select
streaming audio input from a DLNA-compatible server.
The Remote App also enables you to perform basic
playback operations and control the receiver’s volume with
an interface that uses the iPod/iPhone’s built-in
Low Negative-Feedback Design
Too much NFB makes a system susceptible to counter-electromotive
force from the speakers, resulting in a drop in perceived sound
quality. To avoid this, Onkyo focuses on improving the frequency
response and reducing distortion, without relying so much on NFB.
Closed Ground-Loop Circuits
The TX-8050 employs a sophisticated closed-circuit design in which
each circuit has a separate link to the power supply. This helps to
cancel individual circuit noise and keep the ground potential free
of distortion.
HICC (High Instantaneous-Current Capability)
HICC enables an amplifier to immediately cancel the speakers’
reflex energy and instantaneously send out the next signal. The
same high current required to achieve this also supports the
amplifier’s ability to handle speaker impedance fluctuations.
Network Capability Delivers Internet Radio and
Network Audio Streaming via Ethernet
As one of Onkyo’s new breed of receivers that can link
directly to the internet or to your home PC via a local
network, the TX-8050 takes streaming audio and internet
radio to a whole new level. MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless,
FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM audio files can
now be played back through your main system with
unprecedented power and fidelity. The TX-8050 also brings
to life a huge array of internet radio channels vTuner,
Last.fm, SIRIUS XM Internet Radio®, Mediafly, Pandora®, and
Slacker™, plus on-demand music streaming from Napster
and Rhapsody*. As well as being compatible with earlier
platforms, the receiver is compatible with Microsoft’s
Windows® 7 platform, which includes the DLNA
1.5-specified “Play To” media-streaming feature.
* Availability of internet radio and music streaming services depends on region.
Direct Digital Connection of iPod®/iPhone® via
Front-Panel USB Port
The TX-8050’s front-panel USB port lets you access MP3,
WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, and AAC
audio files stored on a USB flash drive or iPod/iPhone. As
the audio signals are transported in digital form, rather than
analog, there is much less chance for signal degradation. End
result: your music sounds cleaner and more faithful to the
original. A further benefit of the USB input is that it lets you
use the system’s remote controller to play back audio files
on the connected device.
*Compatible iPod/iPhone models: iPod touch 3rd generation or later, iPhone 3GS or
later; running iOS 4.2 or later.
Play Your Audio Sources in Two Different Rooms
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.
Universal Port for Single-Cable Connection of
Onkyo Peripheral Devices
A proprietary Universal Port located on the rear side of
the TX-8050 lets you connect an optional UP-A1 Dock for
iPod/iPhone, UP-HT1 HD Radio™ Tuner, or UP-TR1
Wireless Audio Module. A key advantage of the Universal
Port is that it accepts video and audio signals through the
same cable that sends a power supply from the receiver to
the device. Net result: more connectivity, less cable clutter.
