New mini system designed for integration with new Apple iOS devices
Onkyo has unveiled the CS-255 CD Hi-Fi Mini System, with Lightning charging dock. This new CD receiver includes certified charging connections for new and legacy iPhone and iPod models, as well as audio playback from compatible smartphones and tablets by way of a USB port, with an integral FM/AM radio that offers a total of 60 memory presets.
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.
The system delivers 15W of power in each channel, with 0.5 percent total harmonic distortion. Frequency response is between 50Hz and 20kHz. The signal to noise ratio on the device is 84 dB, with a speaker impedance of between 6 and 16 ohms.
The Onkyo CS-255 will be available this August at a suggested retail price of $299.
