Onkyo Rolls Out Firmware Update Enabling FireConnect™ Wireless Multi-room Audio Distribution

Press Release dated: 21 Feb 2017

Onkyo has announced a firmware update that activates FireConnect™ wireless multi-room audio distribution from selected Onkyo audio-video and hi-fi components and systems to compatible wireless speakers.

FireConnect™ powered by Blackfire is a wireless protocol that’s fundamental to Onkyo’s Next Generation Network Audio concept. Next Generation Network Audio leverages dual-band 5 GHz / 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® together with the Onkyo Controller app for iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, and Android™ devices to make music sharing simple and intuitive.

The update enables mirroring of on-demand internet streaming services built into components including TIDAL, Deezer, and TuneIn as well Spotify® and network-attached audio from entertainment systems to FireConnect™-ready speakers, such as the Onkyo NCP-302 Network Audio System. Sampling rates of 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz are supported.

Playback control for speakers in any room, as well as speaker-grouping functions and network audio selection, are integrated within the Onkyo Controller app.

Firmware released February 23 will update the following models:
PR-RZ5100, TX-RZ3100, TX-RZ1100, TX-RZ810, TX-RZ710, TX-NR656, TX-NR555, HT-S7805, TX-L50, TX-L20D, LS7200, and LS5200

Firmware released in early March will update the following models:
R-N855, NS-6170, and NS-6130

Subsequent updates will enable wireless transmission of sources connected to the master component’s external analog audio inputs. Users can look forward to a variety of easily accessible streaming music wherever they are in their home, with app functions that adapt to changing listening habits.

Firmware updates can be downloaded directly to the component or via the Onkyo website.

Follow Onkyo on social media or visit www.eu.onkyo.com for more information.

Note: Streaming service availability is region-dependent and may require a paid subscription. Audio transmission via external analog inputs is not supported on the TX-NR555 and NS-6130.
