Onkyo's latest iPhone/iPad/iPod-compatible dock adds wireless AirPlay audio streaming to new and legacy hi-fi and home cinema systemsPress Release dated: 18 Sep 2012
Onkyo – one of the world’s foremost creators of innovative home entertainment products - is pleased to announce the release of the new DS-A5 iPod/iPhone/iPad Dock, adding AirPlay functionality to Onkyo A/V receiver models and other selected audio products from within its range.
With a DS-A5, owners of current-model Onkyo A/V receivers - as well as older models lacking a USB port or an ethernet connection - can enjoy all the benefits of AirPlay wireless streaming as well as a secure digital-to-digital docking connection to iOS devices (analogue stereo audio outputs are also provided). AirPlay also enables high fidelity wireless streaming of audio files from iTunes-equipped personal computers.
The DS-A5 is Wi-Fi certified and compatible for use with most iPod, iPhone, and iPad models. As well as streaming from portable iOS devices, AirPlay also enables high fidelity wireless audio streaming of audio files from iTunes-equipped personal computers.
When the device is docked, a digital audio output can be employed to deliver signals directly to the receiver’s DACs for clearer, more expansive sound. A composite video output on the DS-A5 makes it easier than ever to view photos and video on the big screen with room-filling cinema sound. Furthermore, the user can control playback with the supplied remote as their iOS device is recharged..
When the DS-A5 is linked to an Onkyo A/V or stereo receiver via the supplied RI (Remote Interactive) cable, the user may power up the system 'from cold' simply by selecting content on their iOS device, and tapping the AirPlay icon. RI has the added advantage of incorporating DS-A5 functionality into the main system remote controller.
Naturally, the DS-A5 can be used to add AirPlay capability to non-Onkyo hi-fi and AV systems, standalone DACs etc minus, of course, the above stated benefits of RI connectivity.
Onkyo is committed to providing its customers with greater levels of performance, convenience and value - whether they’re extending the life of a legacy product or looking to add the finishing touch to their stunning new Onkyo entertainment system. The DS-A5 is clear proof of that...
