Combining a powerful amp, DAB tuner and comprehensive music streamer, the Onkyo TX8250 is a dream package.

A stereo receiver that does it all

Much more than just a stereo receiver, the Onkyo TX-8250 comes equipped with the most comprehensive range of streaming options. A powerful 100 watt amp matches up to a network streamer with support for Bluetooth, AirPlay, Chromecast, Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Fire Connect plus much more. If this isn't enough there's also a DAB/FM tuner radio plus a wide range of inputs including USB, digital and even a phono stage for your turntable. This Onkyo receiver has all bases covered.

Smooth, powerful sound
The powerful 100 watt amplifier uses high quality components to deliver a sound that's smooth and powerful. High-current, discrete amplification and custom made components keep the sound high in clarity and low in distortion. Non-phase-shift circuitry focuses the audio to give a wide frequency response – ideal for Hi-Res audio and vinyl sources.

Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Onkyo's digital processing is a top quality AK4452 DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). This not only provides a transparent and lifelike sound but also facilitates the playback of High Resolution audio formats. The TX8250 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.

Bluetooth, AirPlay and Wi-Fi
Connect up the Onkyo to your network with Wi-Fi. Apple's AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream music from any compatible Apple device - without the need for a separate home hub. The Bluetooth receiver supports streaming from your smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or other Bluetooth source. There's also access to Internet radio and music services such as TIDAL and Deezer, making the TX-8250 perfect for your music streaming needs.

Chromecast built-in
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Having it built-in saves the battery life on your phone as the phone's Bluetooth transmission system isn't used for this purpose. Being able to stream straight from the cloud also gives the best audio quality (available with future firmware update).

Compatible with DTS Play-Fi
DTS Play-Fi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app and you'll not only have access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and Napster. As well as bringing all your streaming sources together, Play-Fi offers the potential for full multi-room music. Simply add other PlayFi compatible sources and you'll quickly be able to build up a comprehensive music system around your home - all under the control of a single app.

The Onkyo is also compatible with FireConnect, Powered by Blackfire. This cutting-edge wireless technology gives multi-source, multi-room interaction between compatible devices, making it simple to set up a wireless multi-room system that also streams HD audio and will include video in the future. With our homes becoming ever 'smarter' this is the technology to integrate it all together.

Connect up your turntable
It's not just the latest wireless sources that the Onkyo has covered, it can handle hi-fi sources, too. Six line inputs and four digital connections are ample for the most complex of home entertainment systems. You can even plug in your turntable, thanks to the dedicated phono (MM) input.

DAB tuner
The final part of the massive spec is a built-in DAB/FM tuner. Ideal for a range of national and local stations, the tuners offer a combined pre-set storage of up to 40 stations – letting you store and find your favourites in an instant.

All the streaming and inputs you could want, without having to compromise on sound, the Onkyo TX8250 is a classic all-rounder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Bought a couple of weeks ago through the Telesales team really impressed with the service I received made me feel like a valued customer. Much easier than online and they tell you if there are any deals or freebies..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great network streamer, receiver, amp I've had this a month and I'm really pleased with it. Streams everything from my NAS and Internet, DAB FM AM radio and plenty of analogue inputs for all my old kit. Lots of power and sounds fantastic, so far can't fault it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flexibility and super sound to go with I bought this to replace a mini receiver whose DAB had failed. I needed lots of inputs as well as a DAB Radio - it does also have loads of other features, like 'Network' which I have yet to work out! From the moment its radio came on I though YES! I have had and listened to HiFi sytems for over 50 years and this is superb. I didn't really need 135 W /channel but it helps it sound like nothing is a stuggle everything is handled perfectly. I currently have 2 systems and was almost tempted to buy the same receiver for the other room but my other one is also really good - one of the nicest amps I had ever head - so to have 2 systems which both sound that good is a dream. One excellent feature is having a USB on the front that will play almost anything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I bought this based on reviews, budget, and requirements. I did not have a demo, or try out other amps. It is hooked up with Tannoy Mercury V4 floor-standers, and a Cambridge Audio SX-120 sub-woofer (added later). The sound was very good at first - great clarity, but I wanted a bit more depth/oomph, and the sub-woofer has complimented things nicely. I play wide range of music. I tend to focus on rhythms, and riffs, rather than lyrics, and enjoy funky/punky noises with plenty of bass and percussion. This set up does the job. Cheers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is like 3D compared with listening to 2D As usual Richer Sounds is the first place I go to if I'm needing anything to do with telly or sounds. I got a good discount on the Onkyo CD Player as it was on show in the shop.
