| Onkyo CS-245DAB CD Hi-Fi Mini System - Black/ White |
CD Mini-System with USB and iPod/iPhone Playback
Seeking a versatile audio system that’ll look and sound great in the den, office, or bedroom? Feast your eyes on the suavely compact CS-245. Offered in a range of chic hues—including a subtle dark brown, a mellow red, and a vibrant yellow-green—the CS-245 has the style to grace any listening space. Along with regular CDs, the disc-player handles all your MP3-encoded CD-Rs. But the playback options don’t end there. On top of the unit is a digital dock for iPod/iPhone, and on the front-side is a USB port that lets you play audio from a flash drive. As always with Onkyo, construction is top-notch. The player/receiver body is supported by seamless steel front and side panels designed to reduce vibrations. The speaker cabinets—edge-rounded, like the main body—are slightly tapered to minimize internal standing waves. And the two-way speaker design incorporates a 10 cm bass-reflex woofer and a balanced-dome tweeter that help deliver a nuanced and musical performance.
Built-in Dock for Direct Digital Connection of iPod/iPhone
In addition to handling CDs and USB flash drives, the CS-245 features a top-loading dock for iPod/iPhone. This direct digital connection allows you to access podcasts and music in a variety of audio formats. As the audio signals are transported in digital form, rather than analog, there is much less possibility of signal degradation. Tracks on your iPod/iPhone can be browsed, skipped, and shuffled using the accompanying remote control.
Front Panel USB Port for Flash Drives
Now you can use your flash drive as a music source for the whole room. Using the CS-245’s front-panel USB port, you can access MP3 files from USB flash drives that support the USB Mass Storage Class standard. Once your device is connected, you can use the CS-245’s remote control to play back your music.
Note: USB playback requires iPod/iPhone to be removed from dock.
Compact Yet Solid 2-Way Speakers
The CS-245 includes a pair of bass-reflex speakers that incorporate a two-way design with a 10 cm woofer and a balanced-dome tweeter. The cabinets feature rounded edges and a front-to-rear taper that helps reduce internal standing waves and preserves the essence of your music. Compact in size yet surprisingly robust, these speakers are ideally suited to small and mid-sized rooms.
