The New Stereo Receiver With Tons of Connectivity Options

Put the focus on musicality with the TX-8270, a beautifully engineered stereo amp that’s ready to play anything you throw at it. Together with line and phono inputs, there’s coaxial and optical digital, four HDMI® inputs, USB, and dual-band Wi-Fi® to support wireless audio technologies. These include DTS Play-Fi®*, Chromecast built-in*, AirPlay, Spotify®, network-attached audio, and streaming services. Built around a massive transformer, audio-grade capacitors, and discrete non-phase-shift circuitry locked into a robust chassis, this amp has high-current power to illuminate your favorite music. Enjoy versatility with easy enhancement of everyday TV entertainment, DAB+ and FM/RDS radio, and more. Paired with speakers of appropriate quality, the TX-8270 will bring a smile to your face every performance.


Driving Big Speakers with Vitality and Dynamism 
This amp system generates high current with a massive transformer and audio-grade capacitors. Circuitry features discrete output transistors for low distortion and effortless driving power. High current assures accurate control, restoring energy and vitality to your music. Non-phase-shift circuitry, meanwhile, focuses the audio image and reproduces a wide frequency bandwidth to maximize Hi-Res Audio and vinyl playback. 


Smooth Analog Signal
Onkyo developed Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) to reassemble the audio signal to its original form following processing. Unlike conventional filters, VLSC removes pulse noise generated in D/A conversion, allowing the sound wave to be reproduced with extremely high fidelity for a smooth analog signal.


Rediscover the Magic of Vinyl
Hi-current amplification brings out the best in your vinyl records - just connect your turntable via the phono input. Long-time collector or just starting out, the TX-8270 will delight with authentic Hi-Fi sound.



Premium Digital-to-Analog Processing 
An AK4438 384 kHz/32-bit digital-to-analog converter from AKM features unique low-distortion technologies ideally suited to DSD 5.6 MHz*1 and PCM signals up to 192 kHz/24-bit*2. Together with unique VLSC™ filtering circuitry, which eliminates ultra-high-frequency pulse noise, playback is crystal clear.
*1 Playback after PCM conversion. 
*2 192/24 PCM not supported over wireless LAN or USB.

A Stereo Receiver that Connects Everything 
A beautiful stereo receiver crafted for hi-fi enthusiasts, the TX-8270 is also exclusively equipped with connections allowing it to serve as an up-to-date amp for TV entertainment. Joining analog, digital, phono, and USB inputs are HDMI® terminals (connect an Apple TV or similar) together with a Next Generation Network Audio platform. Cast music from familiar apps quickly and easily.

Hi-Current Non-Phase-Shift Amplification

High current enhances control of the speakers for extremely accurate and dynamic sound. This system prevents phase shift by pushing the roll-off point higher than the listening-level frequency.

This creates an uncommonly well-focused and realistic audio image.

Quick-Access Presets

Get instant access to four of your favorite AM, FM, and internet radio stations at the touch of a button.

DTS Play-Fi is a wireless protocol that works with  any app and smart device. Flick whatever’s playing to the receiver, even different sources to different components at the same time. 

Dual-band Wi-Fi®, AirPlay, and Spotify® Connect
A selectable 5 GHz Wi-Fi® channel assures stable connectivity in areas with traffic congestion on the 2.4 GHz band. Enjoy smooth streaming over AirPlay, the Spotify Connect app, and other network audio services.
