Onkyo Releases CS-255 CD Hi-Fi Mini System


Onkyo-CS-255-mini-system-small.jpgOnkyo's CS-255 mini system is designed to offer a stereo experience, while ensuring faster access to a wide selection of media. The receiver features a digital amplifier that drives a pair of 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.

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 3.5mm 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, allegedly 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 out the package.

The Onkyo CS-255 will be available this August at a suggested retail price of $299.
