Onkyo announced that around 30 devices under its Onkyo, Integra and Pioneer Elite brands will receive the Works with Sonos badge, signaling that the devices can connect with Sonos speakers and stream music directly from the Sonos app.

With Sonos Connect, the awesome home theater you’ve built around your Onkyo receiver can now be part of your existing Sonos Home Sound System, or the start of a new one. Instantly upgrade the music streaming capability of your home theater with Sonos Connect and a free firmware update.

After a simple set up, your Onkyo receiver will seamlessly tie into Sonos, instantly waking, changing inputs and playing at the volume you command through the familiar Sonos app.

The Works with Sonos badge certifies products that seamlessly connect with the Sonos Home Sound System. The badge helps people choose products that meet Sonos’ exacting standards for design and sound.

Products featuring the official designation will include select network A/V and stereo receivers, which users can add independently or as part of a predetermined Sonos zone. Specific models will be announced on June 6 when the firmware update is slated to become available.
