Onkyo Announce iPhone Remote App

Onkyo M-5000R

Onkyo, the home entertainment specialists have announced they are working on an iPhone/iPod app that will allow users to control Onkyo networked receivers through their smartphone.

The app will allow you to sync your smartphone up with Onkyo’s connected AV units, turning it into a touch-driven wireless remote. The release states that the app will allow users to “replicate day-to-day operations such as altering volume/balance/mute/input selection/listening modes etc. Gesture control will also be incorporated and owners will be able to browse Internet Radio station lists as well as content held on NAS (Network Attached Storage)”

In other words it turns your iPhone into an universal remote for your Onkyo AV receivers.
The app will be available early next year.
