The TX-8050 is a stereo audio receiver from the Onkyo company. Featuring 80 watts of output power in each of its two channels, this model natively supports many leading internet radio and music streaming services. Users can remotely access and organize content from vTuner, Last.fm, Sirius XM Internet Radio, Mediafly, Pandora, Slacker, Napster and Rhapsody, with additional streaming available from PC computers and network storage devices. The inclusion of Onkyo's own WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) helps to improve signal-to-noise ratio and eliminate peaking caused by variable audio formats, thereby boosting signal strength to maximize stereo width. The company has also included a "universal" device port for simple connectivity to peripheral devices like tuners and docks, alongside a front-mounted USB port specifically designed for Apple iDevices. In addition, DLNA technology enables wireless synchronization across a common internet network, making it possible to send audio content back and forth via programs like iTunes and Windows Media Player.
