    Just replaced my JVC micro system with this more powerful Onkyo setup. There's nothing to getting this entire system set up and the fact that the speakers have spring loaded terminals makes longer speaker wire a snap. My prior system was wired directly into the speaker and forced me to splice wires together to work in my home office setting. The sub-out and (1) input sold me on this unit as I have my Sirius unit running to that input. And the dedicated iPod charger/dock that's built into the top of the main unit makes for simple use & charging of my iPod and any other iPods in the house. It might have been nice to have a second input on this unit that I could use for a Sonos bridge but that is always something I could run into my Line 1 input and then access my Sirius account via the PC or run my Sirius Starmate through the Sonos unit(still researching this as I havent' taken the plunge with Sonos in the house yet.) All in all this is close to just what I was looking for and I suspect the speakers will only sound better once they are broken in over the next few weeks. There's only 4 increments of adjustment on the Bass & Treble so that does somewhat limit how much I am able to affect the sound of the systme overall ,but maybe that's by design so I don't ask something of the speakers that they weren't designed for. Again, all in all it's not an issue and this is a sweet unit for the price.

    Simple use

    Really easy to set up. I needed a small, light micro system with audio-in capability and it delivered. I desired a little more power but otherwise it works fine.

              Receiver has a good construction, and is powerful enough. Speakers are good, but not much bass. Receiver has pre-amp sub-woofer output if you need more bass.
              CD player seems 'added' on the receiver and is a bit flimsy. The button to open the tray is very small .

              I Did not try ipod connection.

                      I was really surprised to find an onkyo mini c.d. receiver with 45 watts of power per channel at around $ ? usually these types of micro or mini systems often only offer 15 - 20 watts per channel of less. in one room i have a yamaha c.d. receiver with 20 wpc and in another room i have a high end sharp 5-1 system with 15 wpc..........but this little onkyo cs 445 system surprised me in a good way. i hooked it up to the new andrew jones pioneer sp fs 52 towers and because of the onkyo circuitry these speakers sound better than with my kenwood 100 wpc system. I am about to order a second one. It is a little long depth wise but other than that...i really like it.

                        I had a boom box type of stereo for the studio for many years and a client came over recently and wanted to share some tunes he had on his iphone. The old receiver didn't have an input for the iphone so I bought this one to update my studio. I have been really pleased with the receiver, having the remote is a nice bonus.. I would have liked to have had the receiver a little wider and a little less deep, not a big thing. Even though the speakers aren't that big, they can crank out good sound and volume

                          When our decades old system failed to survive our recent move from a large house to an apartment, it seemed an ideal time to downsize our hi fi. The features I wanted were a remote, a headset jack,a line in audio jack so I could play back my cherished collection of audio tapes, & of course the ability to play CDs. I'm no sound snob, but for what it's worth,it seems to me the sound is better than that from the massive old hi-fi.

                            this onkyo stereo may be small, but the sound is big and clean with only 2 small speakers. i tend to play it loud in my 24 x 36 woodshop. i am very impressed w/the sound quality and already have recommended it to friends.
                            thanks! (i don't give anything a perfect score.)

                              I use the system in my office to audition new Jazz releases. I am a part-time professional on-air broadcaster. I needed a system that could provide power and clarity. I own three Onkyo AV receivers driving my home theatre systems. This was a natural progression. I am very please with my decision to purchase this system without hearing the device in a store front. I purchased the system based on my personal experience with Onkyo and my expectation of Onkyo's committment to producing quality products.

                                Bought this to replace another shelf unit and what an upgrade!It's built like a seriuos component system rather than the common lightweight systems so prevalent today. The sound produced reflects these higher quality materials and sounds like twice the cost.

                                    I was looking for a small, quality system to play my ipod on. I live in a condo so saving space was an important factor. I initially purchased the Bose Soundock 10. I returned it and for 1/3 the price rolled the dice on this little gem. I'm not often wowed by an electronics purchase but this was the best purchase I've made in years! When I opened the box, I was pleasantly surprised by the compact size and quality of the receiver. There's a single disc player too. The separate speakers give me the versatility to place them together or apart for greater room filling sound. I also have the option to upgrade to a higher quality bookshelf speaker in the future. The Onkyo speakers are not terrific but they're not bad either and this may sound stupid but the old-school volume knob on the receiver is great. So, if you're on the fence between this product and a soundock, to me, there's no comparison.

                                    Comments about Onkyo CS-445 CD Mini Receiver System:

                                    I bought this system to replace an older Onkyo mini-receiver system that I used in my office. The 3-CD changer in that system broke, so I needed a replacement. This system is about half the size of my older system, though it can only hold 1 CD at a time. On the other hand, it has a nice iPod/iPhone connector on top with a digital interface. I ended up using the loudspeakers from the older system - the CD-445 speakers are much lighter than my old ones and I liked the look of the older speakers better. FM reception is adequate - you have to use the wire antenna and reposition it sometimes for weaker stations. Sound quality is excellent, and there is plenty of audio power for my office. The remote control is very useful, especially because most functions are only available from the remote. I actually like this strategy, as it declutters the box, leaving only the key functions assigned to physical buttons on the front panel. Build quality is solid.

                                    Comments about Onkyo CS-445 CD Mini Receiver System:

                                    I purchased this mini system mainly for use with my TV in my study. As you know most of these LED TVs have worthless sound systems. I did not want to use a sound bar because they can be limited to just the TV set. I needed something that I could also use for listening to my music. This fit the bill perfectly. I originally considered purchasing a set of bookshelf speakers and a mini Yamaha receiver but when I saw this for a little over [$] including the speakers I gave it a try. Onkyo has a good reputation for quality so I decided to try it out. I was not disappointed as was surprised at the amount of bass this little set of speakers produce. The system has a very clear sound; I listen mostly to straight jazz. The handling of audio from my TV sounded very good as well. The controls are very smooth and feel like quality. The operation of using an iPod works very nice too; the remote will also control the functions on the iPod. The IPod will charge even when the receiver is off. Just a couple of items that would have made this a better unit:1. It would have been nice to have a DVD player instead of just CD/MP3. 2. Extra speaker out instead of just two speakers3. Digital audio input. This unit has RCA jacks and a lot of the newer TVs do not have RCA audio out.

                                      Wanted to have a single-room stereo receiver/CD/iPod player. Nice little system.Now it is automatically obsolete as a result of the new iPhone connector.Best not buy one, unless the price is substantially lowered by about 75%.

                                        Comments about Onkyo CS-445 CD Mini Receiver System:

                                        Just hooked up my new Onkyo CS-445 and popped in my iPod and it sounds amazing. Played a CD, again... even more amazing. Tried my digital cable music channel and awesome. Tried the FM stations.... TERRIBLE. But that's not what I purchased this for. And as far as some of the comments regarding the bass not being sufficient... What are you talking about? This has amazing bass for such small speakers. I had a Panasonic bookshelf system with built in sub woofers that couldn't produce this kind of bass! I have it set up in my 14x12 home office on top of my desk credenza overhead cabinet and I couldn't be happier with the sound. The iPod dock is perfect and convenient. Spend a few more bucks than the Sony and get a serious system. Just don't expect concert hall FM station playback. Plan on buying some good 18 guage extra speaker wire because the wire that comes with it is only 6ft for each speaker, and doesn't allow you to spread the speakers out like they should be, but at least you don't have to worry about factory connectors that other brands have. This has traditional speaker hook ups (wire in the hole), and traditional RCA inputs for an accessory like a turntable or cable box.

                                          This system will be used in a small room and the size was very important to me. It is connected to a small flat panel TV and improves the quality of the sound greatly. I tested the CD player and the tuner and the quality of the sound is great for such a small system. Also another great advantage was the simplicity of front panel buttons, the very compact size of the unit itself and easy to use remote.

                                            My wife & I like having a small cd/stereo receiver in the kitchen to listen to. Our last stereo mini system started skipping playing the cd player. Anyhow I did a lot of research & this mini system seemed to have what we wanted & had the best reviews in our price range $200-400.We are very impressed with the sound. It has fairly good bass for bookshelf speakers & if u need more bass it has an optional output. Overall Great sound for the money.

                                              Really easy to set up. I needed a small, light micro system with audio-in capability and it delivered. I desired a little more power but otherwise it works fine.
