The compact CS-255 CD Hi-Fi Mini System from Onkyo includes the CR-255 CD Receiver, RC-823S Remote Controller, indoor FM antenna, power cord, D-T15 Speakers, speaker cables, and eight floor pads. This system produces satisfying audio with its punchy amplifier and stereo speakers. You can dock your iPhone 5, iPod touch (5G), or iPod nano (7G) via the connector and recharge the device while you listen. The receiver automatically detects your device, selects dock input, and allows you to use the system remote to quickly navigate to your desired track. Audio signals are transported in pure digital form, bypassing the docked device’s analog conversion and gain circuits for clear, deep, and realistic sound. Users of legacy iPhone and iPod models can link up in moments via the front-panel charging USB port, which also enables direct-digital audio transfer on these devices. If your smartphone or tablet features a mini-USB port, you can access the MP3 files stored on the device as well. You can also plug in a flash memory drive and use the system remote to select an MP3 library, hassle-free.
The CS-255 digital amplifier produces clean, detailed sound. Onkyo’s low-noise circuit topology reduces distortion across a wide frequency bandwidth, revealing new layers of depth and detail in your favorite recordings. And the 2-mode super bass function on the CS-255 gives a welcome boost to the low-frequency band, adding just the right amount of heft to bass guitar and kick drum without sounding distorted, harsh, or boomy.
