The Onkyo TX-NR727 network A/V receiver offers inbuilt Wi-Fi connectivity to allow the device to stream audio from iOS and Android devices, filling even the biggest rooms with music thanks to its 7.2 channel audio technology. If it's predecessor the Onkyo TX-NR906 is anything to go by, we could be in for a treat.
Also part of the 2013 Onkyo network A/V range is the mid-range Onkyo TX-NR626 offers a more affordable option, whilst the Onkyo TX-NR525 is the entry level model. It lacks inbuilt Wi-Fi connectivity but enough functionality to be a solid investment.
