Onkyo’s hi-fi revolution gathers pace with the TX-8050. This finely sculpted stereo receiver delivers two channels of audio precision to entertainment spaces where you don’t need advanced video processing or multichannel audio. Analog A/V inputs on the TX-8050 are augmented by digital optical and coaxial audio inputs, a Universal Port for Onkyo peripherals, and a front-side USB input for direct digital connection of iPod/iPhone. The receiver’s network capability, meanwhile, lets you stream internet radio or play audio from a PC or network audio storage device. Behind the smart aluminum facade lies a massive transformer and large capacitors that provide clean amplification power and help push performance well beyond the norm.
Network Network capability delivers Internet radio and network audio via Ethernet from vTuner, Last.fm, SIRIUS XM Internet Radio, Mediafly, Pandora, Slacker, Napster, Rhapsody and more.
DLNA Support The DLNA technology enables entertainment devices connected to a home network to share their content with one another directly, without the need for a complex set-up procedure.

This review is from: ONKYO TX-8050 Stereo Network Receiver
Pros: Network connectivity: I have this connected through a Linksys WET610N wireless ethernet bridge. The unit can be accessed through a web interface. I have set up several internet radio stations. Anything that has a URL and streams can be setup as a "favorite" station. I have several concerts from archive.org programmed into the unit. You can set up to 20 URLs as favorites in addition to Pandora, Rhapsody, Napster, Sirius and some other stations that are built into the menu. You can also stream from another computer on the network with WMP but I have not tried this.
USB connection: I have hooked up a USB powered hard drive to the unit and it reads and plays it perfectly. "If the storage device has been partitioned, each section will be treated as an independent device.... Each folder may contain up to 20,000 music files and folders, and may be nested up to 16 levels deep." -From the manual. This means you can have as many files as you can fit on a hard drive (must be FAT16 or FAT32.)
Cons: Price is still a little on the high side but it does exactly what I wanted. I was considering dedicating a computer to my stereo so I could enjoy internet offerings and my digital music collection.
Other Thoughts: I love this receiver. It sounds great. Onkyo makes other ones with more bells and whistles for home theater but I was really just interested in listening to music so this is perfect. I did upgrade the firmware right away.
