Onkyo to Include MP3tunes for Cloud Access to Personal Music Collections and Saved Internet Radio Programs with its 2012-model AVRs (Press release)
01/09/12 - UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (1/9/12) -Onkyo, a brand renowned worldwide for quality home entertainment technology, has announced that it will include access to the MP3tunes.com's music Locker with its 2012-model network-capable AV receivers. Onkyo is believed to be the first AV receiver brand to incorporate MP3tunes access in its network operating system. This will allow MP3tunes subscribers to use an Onkyo network capable receiver to play personal music collections stored their MP3tunes' Lockers, which is what the company calls their cloud servers. MP3tunes allows subscribers to maintain up to 2 GB, or about 400 songs, for free, with fee supported accounts starting at $39.95 per year for 50 GB, or the equivalent to about 10,000 songs. Paul Wasek, National Marketing and Product Planning Manager, believes this a great new feature for any Onkyo customer. "MP3tunes Locker is an easy and secure means to maintain this data, while providing easy access through an Onkyo receiver, computer, smart phone, or any of the many network capable devices that support MP3tunes."
MP3Tunes capabilities will be included as standard on new Onkyo network capable receivers beginning in the first quarter of 2012.
