Onkyo CS-255 CD Hi-Fi Mini System

Onkyo CS-255 Mini System

Onkyo just announced the CS-255 CD Hi-Fi Mini System, which offers connectivity for iPhone 5 and includes certified charging connections for legacy iPhone/iPod models, as well as audio playback from compatible smartphones/tablets via USB, and an FM/AM radio with a total of 60 memory presets.

The receiver features an efficient digital amplifier that drives a pair of robust two-way speakers. The cabinets include a large cone driver, balanced-dome tweeter, and non-parallel construction with rolled edges to prevent internal standing waves. Even at higher volumes, these compact speakers maintain excellent composure, with an airy, pleasant mid-range and punchy bass response-perfect for listeners with eclectic musical tastes.

Connectivity begins with a Lightning charging dock for iPhone 5, iPod touch (5G), and iPod nano (7G) in the receiver’s top panel, which enables simple navigation to albums and playlists using the system remote controller. Owners of legacy iPhone/iPod devices can connect, charge and play online and offline content via the front-panel USB port.

Playback of MP3 files from other compatible smartphones, tablets, and flash memory drives is also enabled via USB. A 3.5 mm stereo analog input is included to connect devices that don’t feature the appropriate USB connection.

Whether enjoying music through the system via iPhone audio app, or playing local MP3/AAC files, track selection is simplified by the playlist jump function and album/track repeat buttons on the remote controller. A selectable two-mode Super Bass function, meanwhile, helps get a firmer grip on kick drums and bass guitar without the muffled boominess sometimes associated with affordable mini systems.

Radio listeners are catered to with an FM/AM tuner with 30 memory presets for each band (60 in total). These allow users to program in their favorite stations, making channel selection quick and easy. A sturdy front-loading CD player rounds the package.

Price and Availability
The Onkyo CS-255 Mini System will be available this August 2013 for $299.
