What customers say about "Features"
Onkyo TX-8260 2 Channel Network Stereo Receiver
  • This receiver does an excellent job. Spotify Connect is fantastic. My phone acts as the remote, but the music streams directly to the receiver.
  • Great! It supports Airplay, Pandora, Sonos Connect, and a host of other streaming services. Also has Chromecast built-in for my Android friend.
  • Took a while to figure out the interface to connect to my Pandora account, but it works well. Listened for hours, no problem.
  • I find the Onkyo remote control app very convenient as it lets you perform the setup for Tidal and Deezer in the app.
  • Сhromecast built-in...very unreliable and inconsistent compared to other brands that offer feature...way behind on chromecast firmware versions at any given time.
Onkyo TX-8270 2 Channel Network Stereo Receiver with 4k HDMI
  • I use the recommended Onkyo controller app on my phone & tablet and the receiver delivers a wonderful image and description in real time off of my handhelds, so, I am quite satisfied.
  • One of the best features is that you can stream music services with it after downloading the Onkyo Controller app.
  • The app lets me control and turn on and off from anywhere in the house.
  • I LOVE tone controls on the front, just not THESE tone controls. This Onkyo's front bass & treble control is HARSH.
  • The only thing I wish they would add to the app would be the ability to alter, base, treble and the A/B speaker selection.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Onkyo TX-8260 2 Channel Network Stereo Receiver
  • The hardest part is connecting to a wireless network and typing in a password. But if you have an iOS device the setup is automatic. Nice!
  • This is a bargain. The ability to play FLAC files through the USB ports and look for files through the remote sets this unit apart.
  • On top of things it has a phono interphase. Get a pair of decent speakers and you should be all set.
  • The sound was good, but the internet connectivity and bluetooth was never that great, very buggy, and it got worse over time.
  • May occasionally drop the connection with subscription services (Pandora in particular) which is annoying.
Onkyo TX-8270 2 Channel Network Stereo Receiver with 4k HDMI
  • Build quality, consistent Wi-Fi connection, ample power and ease of use.
  • There are 4 HDMI ports for input from multiple sources. There's a USB in on the front of the unit that will play from my phone or a memory stick.
  • I bought the Onkyo TX-8270 because it had a built in Riaa and wifi, so that I could connect my turntable directly without getting a seperate preamp and listen to new stuff from youtube.
  • Good features and sound for the price, but sometimes drops WiFi and has to be re-added.
  • Bluetooth has bad reception with interrupts even at close distance.
