Onkyo has released a revamped iPod Touch/iPhone app that enables users to wirelessly control music and components in a multiroom setup.

The "Onkyo Remote 2" will control 2010/2011 network receivers, plus the TX-8050 Network Stereo Receiver, and enables control of Internet radio, full access to digital music libraries, and commonly used functions.

The remote will control connected components compatible with Onkyo's RI (remote interactive) system.

The app features an updated look and controls including play, stop, skip, and pause; volume, bass, and treble adjustments; listening mode and input source selection; network source selection; and radio stations.

The app is available for free from the Apple iTunes store, but Onkyo has yet to reveal details of iPad-specific control, or of an update to the Android Remote released in July that was based on version 1.
